Simmie Sims — better known as Buddy — started rhyming seriously when he was 11. By the time he turned 17, the Compton teen was performing at showcases where he caught the attention of industry insider DJ Casanova. Casanova helped Buddy polish his sound and then introduced him to Pharrell. Thus The Neptunes‘ produced breakout anthem, “Awesome Awesome,” landed on Spotify mixes everywhere. The ode to living dangerously (well) gained even more speed from the How To Make It in America 2 Mixtape. In celebration of Buddy’s newfound success, Kidult challenged the rapper to get more specific about other things he deems “awesome awesome.” Get ready to get familiar.
