Our exclusive interview with WHYTETRASH


1- Great to have you on our blog. Please, introduce yourself?
I'm Devyn Radkke otherwise known as WHYTETRASH. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV! I write and sing rap/hip hop. Nice to chat with you today.

2- What got you into music and made you realize that it was your chosen path?
I grew up very artsy. I've always been into acting, sketching, the arts, etc. I went to school for Theatre Gen studies. I wrote alot of poetry, was always reading books, and was good with reading and writing. It wasn't until a little while ago that I'd try my hand into rap and hiphop. I think it worked out pretty well so far - alot more work to do! But I enjoy it. I've met alot of good people, learned alot about music and the process of making them, producing them, etc. I really respect the people in this industry because it's tough work.

3- Tell us about your new single. And what’s the story behind it?
So "Hey" was kind of based on this hookup that I had a while back. I was super infatuated with them but they were still hung up on their ex, being a player, etc. I wanted SOMETHING with them, even if it was just hooking up. I wanted them closer to me in a way. We were a bit tumultous for sometime, on and off. They traveled for a while and then moved back to Vegas after sometime. We're still kind of on and off and having issues but this song really puts me in a mood whenever it's on. I think about them nonstop. Sometimes we WANT more from someone, but we kind of settle for the latter because something's better than nothing, right?

4- What makes your music unique? How would you describe it?
My style is very vulgar and a bit funny/comical in a way. I have kind of a boyish sound at the same time. My music is very sexually stimulating. I want something that dives deeper into sex but also gets people off their feet and excited at the same time. Alot of rappers and hip hop artists get kind of hesitant when REALLY discussing sex and getting inside someone and I don't.

5- What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?
I think targeting the right audience and really connecting with them/relating to them are very important. Find something that you, the artist, AND your audience can emotionally connect with.

6- Who are your biggest musical influences? And any particular artist/band you would like to collaborate with in the future?
Easily PPCOCAINE. She's what really made my writings come alive. Jhay Cortez is what made me want to PERFORM and put my music out there. He's very flamboyant and has this beautiful energy when he performs. I also like Tila Tequila, early Brokencyde, Rico Nasty, Big Klit, and Pretty Ricky. I like to learn bits and pieces from different artists and sort of incorporate them into MY own style. I'd be down to work with any of them! I'm sure we'd slap some bangers together.

7- If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?
I want to thank my fans for supporting me so far. I know I'm still new but I'm going to keep putting up stuff out there and put out some good stuff.

8- What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?
I'm working on 4 new songs. I'm talking to a pretty popular music artist right now actually and we're planning something out for later 2022. They have a music label and I'm still independent so we're still kind of sitting down discussing what we need to do from here. But yeah expect alot more good music this and next year.
