Q&A With Rising Hip Hop Duo Default Universe

What motivated you guys to create this style of music?

Early on I was a huge fan of WU, Nas etc my homie Dorien (Milofuk0) in our senior year of high school put me on Tyler and Odd Future. Heard Yonkers was like cool cool but once I heard Earl I was like “DAMN dude my age spitting like this I can do this too shit” then I heard DOOM for the first time and I was done mentally.

How did you come up with your name Default Universe?

We had problems coming up with a name so we figured until we find a name just use Default or Untitled we chose Default later put Universe.

How is the underground scene in you city?

Were from a slave state. Like heavy slave mentality their’s no underground scene straight mainstream.

How are you guys dealing with this whole Covid-19 Corona Virus? Has this affected your music
career in any way?

Cant speak on Covid-19

What separates you from other Hip Hop duos in the game today?

What separates us from other duo’s. Nothing now that I think about it. I like to think of us on par with Outkast when it comes to creativity and staying true to who you are. I hate that lavish lifestyle persona.

Who are your biggest underground influences?

Biggest influence underground. MF Doom, Madlib, Flying Lotus

You guys recently dropped a new album titled “CHASUI” across all streaming platforms! Please give us some background on that project!? Could you tell me the inspiration behind the project and artwork?

What inspired CHASUI. I draw manga and was coming up with a story and came across a movie called “Tokyo Decadence ” I was heavily influenced by the theme and did some research on it and came across the term Pink Films. So I started watching some and found humor in it and decided to make a album as if I was watching different scenarios and giving commentary for each one. I’m currently working on the Manga for it and decided to turn it into a mini series. The horror comes from ero guro manga and whole subculture for hard core manga lovers. They draw some crazy stuff that beams creativity.

How does social media play a role in pushing Default Universe music?

My problem is that I do use social media to be honest I hate it. But my Milofuk0 tries his best to reach as many people as he can with his brand to help draw in some fans should checkout his work its awesome.

What are a few different moves you guys are making for 2020 when it comes to your music
careers?

I’m starting to get more active on YouTube with my art and music so I hope to gain a following through that platform and setting up for comiccons to sell some merchandise and etc.

Our most popular question….What is your definition of “Underground Hip Hop?
