Interview by Tim Brown
When and why did you start playing? I was listening to an Eminem project and I just like the way he expressed his self through his music all the pain and hurt he went through he just put it all on a table. I was going to some things as well at that time and that is what made me pick up a pin and express my situation through music.
Were you influenced by old records & tapes? Which ones? yes there are so old music that influenced me like run dmc songs like rock box and tricky. Also new edition can you stand the rain. it’s a mixture of r&b and rap. Biggie gimme me the lot and juicy. Nwa straight outta Compton. I can go on on.. lol but yes I am influenced by alot of old school songs.
Do you perform in public? Describe those occasions? Concerts, radio, TV. yes I preformed in strip clubs in miami and also I couple of open mic places as well. The experience was great. To interact with the people and see how that like my music.
What makes this kind of music “good” to you? the type of music I do is rap/ hip hop what makes this music good to me. Is how inspiration it can be to people. This kind of music can change your emotions. And I feel like if the music don’t touch you then it ain’t real.
Why did you choose to play this kind of music? I choose this kind of music because I felt like it can change life’s. There was a point in my life where I was down sad and depressed and music was a way out for me. So I felt like if I could talk about some of my sad and depressed stories maybe I could help someone else get threw there’s.like it did for me
Let’s Talk about your music and your last work… My last project was in 2016 it was called “Revenge of the Lok” which was a 14 track mixtape about a young man letting out his frustration for all the years he been bullied and pushed around. Now 4 years later I have dropped my new mixtape “Laptop and a mic” which is a 11 track mixtape about how I started my rap career.
How do you feel about the internet in the music business? I feel like the internet is the new wave for all music. I mean now you don’t really need a record deal or a label to be successful. All you need is a YouTube channel or a successful Instagram page to drop your music and a fan base then you good. Even for me I don’t even Want a record deal in more cause of all the confusion of the business. Just give me a manager I will be fine with that.
What are the plans for the future? I plan on releasing two mixtapes in 2020. Hopefully find a music Manager so I can take the music to the next level. Also shows and more videos are on the way. I want to start my own record label as well Before 2025.
How has your music evolved since you first began playing music? I think my content as a artist as change alot because at first I was so influenced by T.i muisc that I was rapping about popping guns and hurting people. as time went by I learned how to rap more about my struggle pains so people can get to know the real me.
Could you briefly describe the music-making process? The process always start with a beat i have to find the right beat to bring my ideas to life. Once I find the right beat. I just go from there depending on the type of beat rather it’s trap or a love song type. I bring out my personal experiences to to make the writing process easier and bring the song to life.
