My Favourite Thing: Horsepowar

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      My Favourite Thing is a video feature where the Georgia Straight gets interesting folks from around town to list off, among other things, their favourite performers, live gigs, and singers. And, of course, their favourite thing.

      Like some of the sampled beats and hooks that go into making her music, Horsepowar's list of favourite things is rather unique. The 23-year-old hip hop artist met up with the Straight earlier this month, and you might be suprised by some of her answers. 

      On Horsepowar's latest EP, Bolloywoes, the up-and-coming rapper blends relentlessly witty rhymes with catchy, Bollywood-inspired beats to create five tracks that cover everything from the life of a Desi girl in the suburbs to Rob Schneider's acting skills. When she's not writing new tracks and filming decadent music videos, she's part of the team of DJs that hosts Crimes and Treasons, a hip hop show on UBC's co-op radio, CITR 101.9
