Kobenz – Gothik (ft. Spaceman Zack) [Interview]

  • Please Introduce yourself

Hey, I am Kobenz, and I am an underground artist from Minneapolis. I started rapping about three months ago following some severe trauma I faced in an abusive relationship. This ultimately led to me becoming suicidal, and I ended up going to an inpatient facility. I wrote my self-titled debut, “Kobenz”, off of a much darker poem I wrote during my time in the hospital. The song did really well, and now I have just released my second song Gothik featuring celebrity rapper Spaceman Zack.

Trickstaer – Phantoms of Reiterations [Interview]

  • Please Introduce yourself

My name is Trickstaer, I’m a rapper from the small town of New Braunfels. I wouldn’t describe me, but If I had to, I would say that I don’t belong to anywhere, I grew up moving a lot & I didn’t have a clique, no gang, or anything. I’m a loner and I’m blunt about it. I’m a product of a starving mind, and so my energy is real and different. Or maybe I’m not shit, but In the end, what I’m attempting to manifest is a real music career with real amazing stories.

  • Describe your sound in 3 words

My sound can be very dark, I’m a type of person to get too deep into my feelings, so when I’m confident and driven the music is going to show that. When I’m hurt and going through it, my music will show that too. And sometimes when you’re in a dark place, lyrically you don’t say the prettiest things.

It’s real, this comes from my heart and soul. I think you can see the thought process of how I got to saying what I said.


Progressing, my music will forever evolve. I have no doubt this is what I am, every time I’ve tried to switch or be something else. I couldn’t stop. I will die making music. People will see what has and will happen throughout the next years.

  • Favourite rapper, lyricist and producer / Best Hip Hop album ever

I just like good music. I will listen to every big musician I see out there. I don’t really have a favorite artist. Instead of a favorite one artist or producer, I just deeply love great music pieces. I’ll probably switch to an artist and listen to their vibes and work, then go on the next, and so on.

  • Best live gig you have even been

Haha. I wish I had one, I haven’t been to a live gig yet.

  • Top Hidden Gem Artist

I’m a hidden gem artist, people haven’t seen me, but one day they’ll find out what I am at truth. I get that sounds conceded, and annoying to hear. But I’m somebody who’s soul has felt complete despair, and hopeless. I have to mention myself if you ask me this, not because I’m always thinking about myself but because I won’t let my work be discredited. There are many amazing talented artists out there who are crazy underrated.

  • Future plans

I wanna make music for people who care, My plans for right now is to get people to look. Then On Sept 17 my EP will drop, and the promos and work that I put in to set a basis for myself and fans to love while I hopefully give them music they will really enjoy the next few months. The time for me to do shows will happen after I feel people are wanting me to go out. This is all still very new to me, and I’m trying to take it one step at a time so I don’t get overwhelmed. Especially being an independent artist and wanting to stay that way for while.
