1) Talk to me about the making of your latest project. What was the inspiration behind it?
The whole thing behind the ‘Welcome To Hell EP’ was don’t be scared of nothing and always be prepared of the positive things coming to you.I was also putting a stamp in the game that I wasn’t going no where.
2) With the music industry tanking and record sales falling, how do you currently make money as an independent hip-hop artist?
Any legal job I did I invested at least 50% – 60% with the cash I make towards my music. I used to have a job watching 2nd grade kids. I had to help them with their work stuff like that but then I realize I didn’t want a regular job, so I end up selling my mixtapes, I even gave some out for free in NYC just so that I can catch a ear.
3) From a business point of view, which artists in the game do you think are really pushing the boundaries and changing it up?
I would say 50 cent changed the game ever since he got signed to shady/aftermath with all the album’s, movie’s,mixtapes, video games,gunit clothing line, vitamin water, and his new shows he made. That push me to be on a level like that. I say Eminem too, because he’s still dropping albums now as we speak like he was back in 2000’s and Eminem made me want to get recognition off of just my music no matter how much money comes in. You know you have to have the right beat and the right lyrics so that the music sounds like it could never be out dated.
4) What business lessons have you learnt from the music industry so far?
I’ve learned that certain labels will not support you they’re just in it for the money and will change you.I used to think it was all about money at one point but I’ve been watching artists rise to the top then they fall back down and sometimes you never hear them again.But now we have independent music distribution services that upload your music to streaming platforms like spotify and apple music youtube music etc. Labels can always check the artist out on those streaming platforms, it makes it easier for them.
5) What do you love about hip-hop music?
The thing about hip hop I love is the creativity, the amazing beats and word play plus I’m from the birth of hip hop.
6) What still surprises you about hip-hop?
The energy everybody wants to be in that # 1 spot. Is like a sport.
7) If you had the power to change one thing about the hip-hop industry to help independent artists – what would it be?
If I had the money I would sign alot of artists to distribution deals with my label and a major label. That would be cool.
8) Who do you think are top 3 rappers doing it at the moment?
Eminem, Gucci Mane & Lil Wayne
9) So what are your plans for the future?
My future plans are to make more music and projects for the fans. I’m not planning on stopping now
