Q1. What is the most important thing to do, if you want to have a following, rather than a fan base?
A1. The most important thing is to be consistent and cater to the audience that is investing time into your art. Forget trying to impress other artists and just work on building relationships with your fans.
Q2. Why do you think most rappers rap about similar topics nowadays and what do you do to differentiate yourself?
A2. I believe that most rappers are comfortable rapping about similar topics. It is easy to write battle rhymes, materialistic content, etc. It takes time to be truly creative or live in the moment. I just rap about my life, nothing more, nothing less.
Q3. What is your rhyming technique? Do you write the flow skeleton first or you just play around with the rhymes and write whatever comes to mind? Why?
A3. It depends on the song but most of the time I write without the beat playing. I’ll listen to the beat once and just program it into my memory and then I’ll get to writing. I usually write in 4 bar increments. I feel like I can truly focus on the lyrics this way (I write 4 bars every hour). I do this because of time constraints.
Q4. So many people want to become rappers. Tell them the one thing that they need to remember throughout their climb to success.
A4. Patience is necessary. You have to be patient if you want to last in this game. People are not obligated to listen to your music. Just create music. Be approachable and remain humble.
