Stilo Magolide is one of the most unique rappers in the game whether it be from his style or his music, it’s just all so different from anything anyone else is doing. The rapper got to sit down with Scoop Makhathini on Turn Up to speak about Stilo the brand and what he wants to achieve:
When did you start making music?
I was with my brother this past weekend and we had this conversation, he was like you have been doing music this whole entire time but you just wasn’t active about it. I remember in 2011 when we were shoot the cover for Hype Magazine then there was a cipher outside and you were like rap and I was like nah I’m not gonna rap. I have just been perfecting my craft to the point that I’m at right now.
Which angle are you coming from?
I think more than anything I’m coming from a kid from Jo’burg angle where I’m telling stories of my life and how I see things from my perspective, whether its from my gear or the friends I keep around me and when it comes to my slang its ever evolving.
While the title Camron Diaz?
One of my favorite rappers of all time is Camron and I’ve always had this saying, “its a movie” whether its good or bad it’s still a movie! So Camron Diaz it’s a movie, I’m just cutting out different scenes from my life! Camron Diaz is a hybrid between the actress and my influences which is the Harlem lifestyle.
