Billy The Kid describe his style like this:
I mostly make dirty, dusty hip hop. It’s mainly in the form of what you would call traditional early/mid 90’s sounding hip hop, meaning lots of samples are used to create the sonic layout of a beat. I’ve always been in tune with the hip hop culture ever since I was young. That’s all that was played on my block in the hood. The sound of the music just sounded so right to me. As I grew older, I got curious into how the beats were made and how someone could take some weird part of an old song, and flip it into something new. I slowly taught myself how to do it by listening to a lot of hip hop and the music it sampled from.
