#MISSGUIDEDDISCOVERED: CHRISTOPHER KEVIN AU| September 20, 2016
Meet Christopher Kevin Au. He’s a music journalist, fortune cat collector and editor at Life Without Andy. He’s interviewed big names like DJ Khaled and Kim K and written for Vice and Oyster Magazine. We caught up with him to chat dream collaborations, Insta stalking and celebrity wannabe wives…
Tell us about yourself…
I’m a music journalist by day, occasional party-thrower by night, aspiring rapper and general pest.
Who has been your favourite interview?
There have been plenty of memorable ones over the years. I interviewed DJ Khaled right before Major Key dropped and also Kendrick Lamar right after Good Kid, m.A.A.d City dropped. Both of those were pretty big personal milestones for me – Kim Kardashian, Fat Joe, The Game and Daniel Johns were all highlights, too.
Who’s your favourite artist and why?
Waka Flocka Flame. I grew up listening to a lot of punk and hardcore. When I turned 18, I started going to clubs and delved much further into hip-hop, but I really needed something with that same adrenaline and energy. Waka Flocka provided all of that by yelling constantly over a lot of 808s and headbanging furiously onstage. Flockaveli is a modern classic.
Describe your style in five words?
Obnoxious, ignorant, oriental, athletic, unnecessary.
What are you working on at the moment?
Creating engaging content on the Internet. Also, I have my debut rap single ‘Chinatown Champs’ Ft. DJ Chardonnay dropping sometime in 2016.
Who is your guilty pleasure?
Swedish House Mafia. I love EDM with all of my heart. PLUR!

DMX – Get At Me Dog
