Check out the new song from Heightz – Let Me Know
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I was born in Washington Heightz, New york where i lived along with my mom, sister, and grandma till about the age of 8. At that age my family decided to move down to Miami, Florida in hopes of a better life. It was there in kendall Miami where music really started to have a heavy influence in my life to the point where i was writting verses and trying to freestyle by 9-10 years old(not that i was any good back then HAHA). By the age of 12 my family was back on the move this time staying in florida just moving throughout Miami dade and broward county several times. That was right around the time where i started meeting DJs and local artist and recorded my first cd at 14 and called it now in days(mixtape)vol1. From then on i just kept growing and developing as an artist through the years and the more i recoreded the better i got. Ive always been told that good things come to those who wait. Now here i stand at 20 years old as an Up And Coming Artist whose on the doorstep of major success in the music game.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
The current song that im pushing is Heightz feat Kid Phase (Let me know). For this song i was approached to by local singer/songwriter Kid Phase with the beat and most of the hook done and was told to “Just do what i do on it” and it will be a hit so we got in the studio together along with the producers and a few hours later came out with Heightz feat Kid Phase (Let me kno).
What are you currently working on and what can we expect to see?
Right now i got alot on my plate im working on my mixtape(WE ON IT) which is coming soon along with a couple tracks im trying to release prior to the mixtape. I got some features that have to be done and put out soon. You can expect a video coming soon for (Let me know). My new mixtape dropping that ima be leaking tracks from online everytime i feel the time is right!!
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
One of the hardest challenges for me so far i would say is finding ways to stay in the studio longer! As any artist would know being in the studio is as important as it is expensive(HAHA) so anytime i get money it would go straight to studio time and for me im quick to empty my pockets for it. I believe in myself and know that it’l all be worthed it at the end so i make sacrifices with other things financially to support it!
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
My biggest setback so far i must say came when i was 17 i had finally decided to dropped out of high school after many years of struggling with grades and trying to catch up after falling behind and repeating grades that i just remember feeling like nothing was worthed it anymore and just wanted to give up on everything i was doing like work, school, and music. I was stuck in this negative mindstate and attitude for about 6 months till i met a local DJ by the name of DJ SWAY who just put me right back on the path of music. I remember just him inviting me over his house where he had his turned tables set up and would always make me listen to him spin and i would start rapping everytime over it and we would just go for hours and hours and day by day i would gain positive momemtum till next second i knew my entire attitude, vibe and thoughts was just confidence and so motivated to keep going with my music as JAYZ would say “I GOT MY SWAGGA BACK, TRUTH” and here i am now!
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
One of things young artist like myself out there need to watch out for is people who are just out there for your money. There are alot of people who will say they can help you out as an artist yet at the same time be asking for to much money. Just gotta make sure your money is in and going to the right place!
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
As far as suggestions for other artist i cant say that i have the best advice considering that im only 20 myself and still very young to different aspects of this game but as far as the music goes you just gotta keep that believe in yourself and the music your making. If you believe in your music 100% then just keep doing what your doing and strive to get better everyday because this music game is a loong marathon
not a sprint!
What are the best ways to sell your products as an artist?
One of the best ways to sell your music without majors on your back i would is doing footwork. Me as an artist i know that its a long road before i start seeing money getting back to me from the music so i would get a team together and hit up a couple different spots where you can spread your music yourself! In this game you get what you put in so work hard!
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
My favorite way to promote i would say is the online game! You can spread your music to a ton of people with the click of a button so i cant be mad at that(haha). There are many websites you can build fan bases on and can put your music on the map you just gotta keep grinding.
