We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Andy Mandujano. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Andy below.
Andy, appreciate you joining us today. Are you happier as a creative? Do you sometimes think about what it would be like to just have a regular job? Can you talk to us about how you think through these emotions?
I am very happy with my advance thru the year, I never stopped. Event with the pandemic was really hard to go thru it, but we found a way around it. We dropped around 4 albums in pandemic.
Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers.
Definitely what we stand out from the others is the professionalism we do in all of our work (studio, dj, audio, artist) that’s how you can tell this guys are this guys.
Are there any books, videos or other content that you feel have meaningfully impacted your thinking?
Suge Knight definitely teach me on how not to do things, either Birdman. But been a latino person in the US definitely indicates a path on how your life (and career) will go to, it’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just how it is. I was born in Tijuana now I’m a US Citizen, I have so much to learn from past Chicano generations.
For you, what’s the most rewarding aspect of being a creative?
When people come back for more. I’m telling you, professionalism. I organize hip hop shows pretty much every week in Tijuana, I almost see a lot of familiar faces in it
