Song: All Facts
All facts are about men and women flexing like the got it and they really don’t! I think social media has empowered a lot of fake activity! it has allowed squares to look tough and broke women to look rich! I see thru it all I know you FAKE flexing hence my song All Facts..
My direction is try to be as real as possible! Of course your going to fabricate some things cuz that’s just hip hop. I have a great imagination but I also want to be real with. Bringing life to some of my own reality is ultimately what I’m striving to capture. I speak for a lot of people just like me that don’t have a voice.
I have a home studio where I write, produce, mix, engineer and master all of my music. I’ve been doing that for years. I wanted to know how to do it so I wouldn’t have to rely on others. I’m still learning to this day but I’ve come a long way! My process in the studio is turn on the beat and come with the hook first, from there I can decide if I’m going to try to rip the beat in half or make it more melodic. It usually takes me about 1 hour to complete a full song. I’m not doing any collaborations at this moment but in 2018 I have a couple in the works! I use Logic Pro x to do everything!
It’s an everyday struggle to keep my balance.
I have a wife and 2 kids and as an independent artist, we wear so many hats. Since it’s all up to us to develop a DIY approach with our own marketing, artists have a lot on our plates daily! I’m still learning how to find a balance but my wife has been pretty patient with me, understanding I’m doing this for us ..
Marketing! It’s a big part of the game!
I’ve been in classes online classes seminars you name it! I know my music has a chance to be a huge success but if no one sees it or hear it it doesn’t matter I watched a couple of your videos on YouTube before had some great info on there that I applied immediately!
I live in… Oakland! The music scene here is crowded to say the least but it is what it is I think how I stand out is my talent and also my professionalism and my social media set up! Those are in top shape it’s just a material of put my music in the right hands!
