Adrian Z. Sosebee
Where are you from?
Born on Moreland Ave., grew up off Boulevard ATL (near the zone3 police station i.e. nickname).
Who do you work for?
I have worked for a number of companies over the years at a freelance capacity such as MTV, BET, countless crunk rap videos, and the criterion collection. Now I am focusing on my personal brand (I know it’s a cliche) and I am developing a record label I plan to reveal in the Fall.
What are your Current Project(s)?
Currently I have been practicing and creating my DJ+VJ set where I will manipulate videos like records and play music at the same time. Once things are ready I will take the show on the road. I also have a few secret photography projects cooking, and I will be releasing some limited edition clothing I designed for fun very soon. I do post things for http://www.freshiam.net. I am trying to move away from the film/movie business as I have been in it for ten years now and I need a change and want to perform opposed to filming someone else perform.
Who would you love to work with?
Erik Brunetti (Fuct Clothing). I always dreamed of working with Rodney Dangerfield (RIP).
If you had to give all your sneakers away to charity except for one pair, which ones would you keep?
A pair of 2004 dunks that I painted with weird irradescent paint while I was in a mandated halfway house in Smyrna, check out a picture of them here
What’s on your iPod right now?
Jack Beats, Chase and Status, Fake Blood, XXXchange, Eli Escobar, AC Slater, Tommie Sunshine, Don Rimini, Sinden, Kaptain Cadillac, anything MAD DECENT, and the new freakbeat mix by dj sky. I also listen to Prince and New Order all day.
What’s your Favorite ATL food?
I love Mexican and that’s my favorite part of Atlanta, that there are plenty of Mexican spots. For the low low El Mexicano on Moreland is nice. Nava in buckhead is good for pricey mex. My favorite food in the world is cheese dip and chips with a glass of chocolate milk.
What’s your Favorite ATL hangout?
El Bar, Eastside Lounge, but most times I am alone at my desk working at home wishing some nice beautiful female would enter my life.
What are your Pet Peeves?
Happy Couples in public, Thieves, Liars, and Backbiters.
All my blood relatives (even though they drive me crazy) , Presto & Cristo, AGA, Chilly-O, Whynatte, Street Local, Cobra Corps, all my ex’s, Rich Walters, Stan Stone, Action Jackson, Disco D (rip), Zone 7 Crew, Steve Dinero, Dosa & Michi, zach wolfe, freakytweets, SNT48, Duey FM, Rasta Root, Mr Lord, Ricky Raw, Dick McWoady and all those that underestimate my intelligence. PEACE.
