Thor:  I am!  Although I veiw Thor as more of a Norse God than a super hero.

Thor:  I've been rapping for eight years, my friend discovered my poetry and pushed me to never give up. 

The Media Blast:  Who is in your top five when it comes to emcees, and why?

Thor:  Eminem, Hopsin, NF, Atmosphere, and Kendrick Llamar, mainly because they all speak the truth. Although I enjoy the older stuff from Eminem and Kendrick more.

Thor:  I have a vision of transforming this world through my sound and words. I'll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

The Media Blast:  What type of beats bring out the best in what you do?  

Thor:  I can honestly write to any beat but I LOVE working with piano.

The Media Blast:  Speaking of beats, who are some of the producers you work with? Thor:  Legion beats, Kash Keys, The1isBeats, and I'm currently working with someone new but that's a surprise.

Thor:  I'd love to work with Daft Punk and Diplo.

The Media Blast:  You were recently introduced to prestigious hip hop and nerdcore producer Philonious Phunk, the man behind Florida based supergroup S.P.F. (Symphonic Pheenix Force), what was your experience chopping it up with him and can you see yourself working with him in the foreseeable future? 
Thor:  I like his use of the old school video games. A lot of these songs seem to have a motif of that in the lyrics as well. Definitely unique and very catchy. I personally would love to use beats with some of my favorite video games in them I just would worry about copyright issues.

The Media Blast:  What would you say 3 milestones in your rap career has been so far?

The Media Blast:  What was one of the worst experiences you've faced in the music industry and how did you bounce back or learn from it?
