How would you explain your level or creative artistry into words that people will understand your vision?
Dope shit. I canâ€™t really explain it, I began rapping in my home and now Iâ€™m here. I consider myself a son of Â Kanye and J.D. Salinger with Spainâ€™s mystical charm along with flirty Madrid vibes. I want people to talk about me when im dead.
You have fallen in love with Los Angeles. What exactly has made her your muse?
Thereâ€™s a lot of things. The vibe is completely different to my city, it inspires me, I had a mythical image of Hollywood and as a child I read a lot of Bukowski. It has the Chateau. Of course, I also have a girl Â here that drives me crazy. There is a small community of Spanish creatives, LITTLE SPAIN, people from the art world, poets, cinema, music … we also share leaving our country for â€œgreenerâ€ pastures.. It has EL Floridita!!!, it has my BROKE KIDS, a collective of my dear homies that I love. I donâ€™t know, I feel Â it’s clear that LA is calling my name.
What inspires C. Tangana?
Frustration, women with determination, large amounts of money, flamenco, mistakes and deceit, Â Virginie Despentes, love, intercontinental flights, sex with girls that donâ€™t give a fuck, Borges, women who want to feel desired, Russian literature, disinhibition, self made success and the success of others, the need to be respected, to read “no budget restrictions”, art, proud women, capitalist culture, to fool around with the dark side of things, salsa music, the night.
Red and black.
Huevos de Oro (I highly recommend this film, itâ€™s the story of my life but with less fiction) and Goodfellas.
What is your favorite place to party in Spain?
I had many places, but the place I love the most now is my house.
Who is your inspiration?
Favorite song at the moment?
“La Pastaâ€(The Money), Â itâ€™s a song that I recently did with Tainy and Sky.
What is next for 2019?
Adventures around the world, weâ€™ll see each other in Los Angeles Iâ€™m sure. x
