Check out the new song from Bobby Swagg – Booty Work
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I’m born and raised in Drama City, our nations capitol Washington DC. My mom played 2pac and Biggie and naturally I wanted to become like these guys, so I started to mimic the music I was hearing. Eventually I was so intrigued I began to write my own and develop a style that was more comfortable to me.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Booty Work is a club hit that was produced by Dennis “Aganee” Jenkins who is also one of the producers for Justin Bieber’s song Die In Your Arms. I wanted to make a party track but still stay true to my complex delivery and lyricism.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Learning how to read the signs of who I can trust and who’s out for that quick buck and not caring about what happens to me in the process.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Working with a manager who got me for a lot of money and ran out on me. I didn’t have my paperwork in order, so legally there was nothing I could do. That really messed me up, I had to do a gut check to determine if this was the business I wanted to be in. In the end, I stayed the same humble person I am. I grinded hard and kept my eyes open and my ears to the ground, and now I have a great manager and a great label backing me. Shout out to Ground Up Entertainment and the Lovely @Dmv_robyn, my manager.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
If someone believes in you they will ride with you to the ends of the earth and back, they won’t milk your pockets and they will invest into you, time money and resources. Artists need to really keep that in mind because there are so many people out here that claim they can help you and they believe in you and you will be broke and alone if you fall for it.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Stay true to your craft, strive everyday and every waking minute to be the best artist you can, and understand that it’s not if you will make it, it’s when you make it. So don’t wait around for someone to bring you that time, get up off ya ass and seize it, go hard until you can’t, and then go a little harder, results will come.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
I love performing and I love to market online through blogs and a hip-hop media outlets.
