What 3 things does anyone starting in your industry need to know?
First, as an Artist, you need to have some kind of income to help yourself grow.
Second, when you make music some people like to just put it out and I’m actually guilty for the 1stsong I put out. I didn’t know that you had to, “Mix and Master,” songs. I thought it was basically an, “option.”
Third, don’t trip on what other people think of your music. If you like a song you made–then put it out and let the people slide on what they like hearing from you!!! They either like it or they just don’t really feel it and go to the next track if applicable.
What would you do differently if you were starting in your industry now?
I would approach making music in more of a calculated way. Instead of going in, “blind.” But I came to a realization that going the route I did, “going in blind,” allowed me to see what to do, who to make business with, and learn to make better business decisions. I try to do my best on learning from my own mistakes.
Which people or books have had the most influence on your growth and why?
I might catch heat for it, but Andrew Tate had business courses via, “The Real World.” Most of which allowed me to convert it to music on the business side. Learning basic Networking and Marketing. Learning how important that kind of thing is and most businesses or industries kind of operate with it constantly. Without the knowledge or idea of how things operate then my brand can’t operate. Nor be able to earn the 1st dollar.
What would you say is the #1 key to success in your music career?
The #1 key is to not give up. No matter what. That alone could possibly go far.
Talk about the biggest failure you’ve had. And what did you learn from it?
My biggest failure is putting out a song I mentioned back in the 1st question. At the time being, I didn’t know that after making a song you have to Mix and Master the music afterward. So, I had an opportunity to actually utilize the track when a certain Producer started reviewing other Artists music and giving his personal thoughts and all on any willing Artists’ track they send to him while he reviews them all live via Twitch and YouTube. Well after a couple of days, I finally tuned in and when mysong played he was like, “Mannnn dis mix and master trash…” I looked at chat and chat going crazy bout the mix being trash too. I was like, “Dammmnnn, G…. I ain’t know to do that.” But looking back at it allowed me to start Mixing and Mastering.
What has been your biggest success story and why do you think it was a success?
Biggest success story is probably a couple of verified Artists hit me up via IG trying to collab. It was a success to me because I definitely didn’t think that I was on there, “Radar.” I’m thankful and it motivates me to wake up and do better than I did the previous day.
What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?
Just seeing and knowing that people actually enjoyed listening to some of my music. Getting messages from different Producers, different Rappers complimenting my lyrics from my 1st track despite the mix and master situation and my 2nd track hitting 13k streams via Spotify, just helps keep fuel to keep going with all of this.
What made you pursue being an Artist full time?
Just the situation. The way I see it, venting out some of my situations and some of the pain and perseverance over time outweighs my current problems. Keeps me sane.
Would you sign to a label?
What projects are you working on for the rest of 2023?
So, my current project, “No Reversal,” is dropping February 17, 2023. It’s an EP. Then I plan to release another EP, “Origins,” between the end of March to mid-April 2023. By the end of August, I plan to release my first full-length album
