I really like it when a magazine or something sets up an interview, but instead of sending out an interviewer, they just get some other person involved in the stuff the person being interviewed is to interview them. Did that make sense?
Example: I just read this interview where Tyler, the Creator interviews Nas for XXL, and it’s really awesome. I feel like I learn way more about the people in interviews like that, they just kinda get comfortable with each other and talk about normal shit and it gives a much more intimate picture of who that person really is. I guess the formal kind of interview is good too for like factual shit, like telling complete stories and stuff. But for getting a little portrait of the person just as a person, I think this format is perfect.
I mean when else are you gonna hear Tyler, the Creator say some shit like this:
Being low-key is awesome…
That doesn’t come out when they’re bein put on the spot by some journalist to defend their whole ideology and aesthetic, you know? I love it.
