This Is What Aristophanes Wants The World To Know

The genre-bending Grimes collaborator shares the message behind her music.

April 07, 2016

Late last week, Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes dropped by The FADER office. She told us about how her tour is going (really fun), what she's doing in New York (there's definitely a new record in the works), and talked about the messages behind her music. "I want people to be more patient," she told us. "Sometimes I feel like more and more people just don’t have the patience to understand others." She also touched on the difficulty of being an artist in Taiwan, expressing her hope that she and her friends there will be able to take their "vision of art in the Taiwanese culture" to the world.
