Oral History: Interview with Alex Zayne

Alex Zayne is a 27 year old alternative hip hop artist. Born and raised in Lexington, KY, he continues to reside there, hanging out with Travis Berry, aka Shadow Clone, another hip hop artist. He has one album out, spends his days in the studio, hanging out with friends, and dong odds jobs here and there, and some weekends doing shows, mostly at anime conventions. I have chosen to interview Alex because he is someone that I look up to. He has the courage to put himself out there in a way that I would like to learn how to do. I also want to know about his background, how he got his start, and what things in his life made him the person he is today.

Listening to the interview, there is a lot of background noise that could not be edited out. I have also chosen to leave in some of these instances because the comments made are important to Alex as a person. Some of the noises include people walking around upstairs, as we were in the basement, the ice in Alex's cup being shaken, and at two points during the interview people actually walked through the room.

 This interview is rated PG-13 for some foul language. Listener discretion is advised.

  1. Glad to hear that you were able to spend time with someone who shares your interests, particularly in music. I enjoyed hearing about Alex's childhood and memories, particularly about procrastination (around minute 11). I've enjoyed listening so far. Thank you for sharing!
