What’s good everybody? We’ve got a DopeDrops Exclusive right here! We’d like to introduce you all to a man that goes by Pyro Methane and before you scroll down to check out his FEVER LP, lets get to know him first.
DopeDrops: How old are you and as a child, what type of music did you hear most?
Pyro Methane: I’m currently 21 and when I was growing up it was the early 90s. The only thing that was on the radio or music that my cousins played was New York Rappers. I grew up on Biggie, Jay-z, Nas and Wu-tang. It wasn’t until 5th grade I started branching
off and listening to other people like Pharrell, the Clipse and Fam-Lay and Missy Elliott. These were people I related to the most. They grew up in my State and been places I been and even shot videos in places I played at. Rap was not the only thing I listened to, I liked rock, I played the drums. I used to have jam sessions to Queens of the stone age, Nirvana and Radio Head.
DD: Top 3 most influential albums to you
Pyro Methane: The BluePrint 1 & 2 are my still played in my iPod, but if I had to choose then it would be the BluePrint 2, Only Built for Cuban Links still gets spun in my car.. “check out the rap king-pin, the black jesus” and finally Late Registration. I have a couple more but those
3 popped in two mind when i read the question.
DD: What has been the biggest challenge for you thus far?
Pyro Methane: Breaking that “local” title. That a constant fight any upcoming artist has if he was to further his career. It puts me in a weird place
when I have people overseas who listens to my music hit me up and wonder why I’m not doing more. Guess that’s a part of being underground
DD: How will your forthcoming project, Fever LP, contrast from previous work you’ve put out?
Pyro Methane: My last effort was “confusion on a CD” this one had more of a direction. I hnestly recorded this Mix in 1 studio session.
This Project fever is meant as a entree for the meal coming soon.. I haven’t put a date on it yet but I plan to release it before
the year is out if we don’t die.
DD: The first single for this LP featured Dime Don, can we expect more from her? She was pretty dope.
Pyro Methane: As far as I know it, she’s dropping her “La Mafia” Mixtape in November
DD: We know you’re tight with Nino Skyz and Recognize Soul, are they featured on this project?
Pyro Methane: Their hands was on this project in one way or another. Thats my team and family above all. Most people don’t even know Soul shot the video for “FAR ft. Dime Don”. Nino is on $uper Va$m. We were supposed to do more tracks for this project but I decided
to hold off and save it for the next mixtape. This next song Nino and I have planned is a VA Classic.
DD: Who else can we expect to see on this Fever LP as far as collaborations go?
Pyro Methane: I tired to introduce my fan base to a few of my bro’s this project. The verses that were laid are insane. Especially the one from AyoitsCraig of Ka$hKlub. I promise it will roll heads. He was the 1st person I ever collaborate with since I started recording. So it was only right I put him on here. I also featured Tye SoSick. He laid down some ill vocals for a few tracks, most of which your going to have to find out when you listen. Most people don’t even know me and Tye have songs for days, we could have release a mixtape along time go. lol We grew up recording together. As far as the Productions, I have some cover tracks from Hudson Mohawke and Gold Panda and some original beats from some local producers. Its a nice mix and blend of beat styles from trap to Hard Mid west.
DD: Any idea on which song you’ll get visuals for next?
Pyro Methane: People keep asking me when I’m going to release my next video. I still haven’t released visuals for Souterrain King and Xaler so I’m debating If I still want to release those. But I might just give yall a gift and release two videos. But DopeDrops will be the 1st to know.
DD: Three of your biggest pet peeves?
Pyro Methane: Don’t lie to me, Don’t mess with my money, Give me respect.
DD: You’re not only just into music, but fashion also. To you, do those go sort of hand in hand with each other?
Pyro Methane: Of course image is everything. I’m still in college. I’m in the public eye constantly. So why not give them something interesting to look at. But most of the time when I’m out, I’m in character, and what I’m wearing is not meant to be taken seriously. So I find it funny when I get complimented on how I look.
