Majority of my inspiration derives from personal experiences. I find value in every situation. The ups, the downs, and everything in between. A true romantic, so a lot of my music caters to relationships with couples. However a vast amount of my songs talk about the life of an entrepreneurial
independent. The boss mentality is what comes off in my music. How to handle certain situations & how to overcome them. Never Quit.
Well I’m from Laurel, MD. My city is pretty reserved and middle class for the most part. A real chill type city. However I’ve noticed not much music related events go on over here. DC & Bmore are the two major areas that have developed some form of rep when it comes to the music scene. Having performed in both areas and being in the mix among a vast amount of local artists gave me an in depth look at how big headed a lot of these artists are. So what I chose to do, was create my own label (at first) which has now evolved into a multimedia company titled “bumiCult”. BumiCult is a family oriented organization that focuses on compound interest. This essentially means growing together as organically as possible.
Organizing concerts, community events, podcasts, commercials, music vids etc. you name it. We do it.
Quality About Him is that he never Quit.”
I would advise the up and coming Artist to continuously push themselves to be their best selves. No Risk, No Reward. Find Comfort in the Uncomfortable. Stop looking at L’s as losses and take them in as Lessons. Keep a smooth & progressive pace. This isn’t a race. We want longevity, not temporary gain. That’s important.
Also, your surroundings… if the people you surround yourself with aren’t proving and value & motivation to your life, it’s time to separate yourself. You can love them from a far, but in order to reach your highest potential, you have to separate from those who may have the ability to drag you down.
My father was/is a major influence of mine growing up. Not only was he the lead vocalist in his band, but he also played many different pieces of equipment such as piano, drums & guitar. He was always listening to some form of feel good music in the car, whether it be r&b/ hip hop, soul, funk to jazz as he would play the pretend drums on the steering wheel. Aside from just my pops, there has always been a craving for being in the spotlight. Having won the talent show 2 years in a row in 6th and 7th grade off of original written songs with the help of my pops is what drove me to want to pursue performing and writing more. As I got older into high school I started taking music very serious especially my junior year. Heartbreak and not having received enough playing time on the schools basketball team led me to focus more and more on writing and recording. From there I released my first mixtape on Datpiff titled “The Chase” 2013. From there, I sought out to perform as much as possible.
The family and friends that I do have support me fully. I have a very small circle so when it comes to being there for me when I need them the most, they’ll always show up.
I see myself having finally after 10+ years of making music a solid core fan base that allows me to travel the world and sell out shows whenever I pull up in a new city to tour. I see myself more in the mix in terms of networking events, galas, and business meetings. I visualize myself as a very successful entrepreneur who will be able to fully provide and take care of my family and loved ones.
The biggest struggle I’ve faced thus far is having the right team. It’s difficult finding like minded
individuals who want the best for each other and are all locked in and cohesive with one main vision. Once the right team is established, now comes the network, the marketing, the funneling of what makes the most sense for the most amount of gain however still staying true to ourselves in the process.
People want instant fame/notoriety but don’t want to put in the countless time and effort it takes to reach those goals.
