“Boomiverse is basically the big boom, like the Big Bang Theory, the beginning something new,” he said. “When Dr. Dre’s] The Chronic came out, music changed. When Snoop Dogg’s] Doggystyle came out, music changed, when Wu-Tang came out, music changed. This is one those big booms where we start it f and just switched to something else and hopefully everyone else will follow suit and just reach for something else than everybody’s song sounding exactly the same. All the patterns, the cadences, the beats; you can do more.”
