Describe your sound in 3 words
Relatable, Aspirational, Attainable
Tell us a few things about your new work “Left you on read”. How many beats do you listen to before you end up using one?
“Left You on Read” is an ode to people who don’t like being bothered. As I get older, I have less patience and willingness to argue with people. This song pokes fun at this. Plus I am somewhat of a closeted introvert. In regards to the beat selection, Joffen Hopland (Hopland Music) reached out and sent me 3 beats. This one stuck out. I was attracted to the minimalist nature of the instrumental.
For which lyric you are most proud of?
Of this song? The opening line “Look in the mirror, Nothing is clearer, Use that death note, call me a Kira”
I like anime and this is one of my favorites. In the show, the main character Light (aka Kira) did a lot of “killing” through the death notebook. I am just saying I am killing or deading the drama. Also, saying “a Kira” reminds me of “Akira” the classic anime.
Trap music came to rule the world, but at the moment the genre feels stagnant. What does the future hold for hip hop in general?
Either more of the same or something game changing is coming. The democratization of music leads to more accessibility but also causes over-saturation. And I don’t see it stopping. You would think more accessibility would equate to more diversity but hiphop sounds more homogenous than ever. It’s kinda like news and the internet. You would think more information is a good thing but now our news environment is more toxic than ever. However, when things stay stagnant for to long we see disruptors. Think Netflix to Blockbuster. I wouldn’t be surprised if hiphop loses popularity very soon.
What is the most useless talent you have?
I drive stick shift. And I won’t apologize for it lol
What would you change in the music industry?
We need something like youtube that is as popular as youtube where the goal is to listen to unsigned artists only. Millions of people log on to youtube every day to see individual creators who aren’t in Hollywood. Most people don’t care if the channels aren’t extremely polished. Music needs something like this. Artists are forced to compete in the same playing field as signed artists and podcasters. Indie artists need a dedicated platform with a dedicated following
