Introducing “21 Questions”

The early 2000s was an interesting time in pop culture. Young starlets were running wild in Hollywood as obsessed paparazzi was stalking them through clubs, just hoping to be lucky enough to be the person to snap a photo of them beating a car with an umbrella or crying in the back of a police car.

There was another special thing about this time: the soundtrack. While these childhood stars gone wrong were making some pretty corny club bops, the hottest musicians in hip-hop were turning out hit after hit. These iconic anthems are still played in frat house basements today.

The two seemingly unrelated pieces of history from the early 2000s were similar when it came to the infamous tabloid “25 Things You Don’t Know About….” lists and 50 Cent’s track “21 Questions”. Both featured a list of interesting and intriguing facts and questions to help you get to know someone.

I was inspired when reading a newer “25 Things You Don’t Know About…” featuring Future. I thought about how interesting it would be to have these small factoids about local rappers and other artists to get an intimate look at their personalities.

That’s where the idea of “21 Questions” was born. Each week a new up-and-coming artist will answer 21 questions that I will then curate into a listicle to profile the artist and help you get to know them in a unique way.
