Check out the new song from JehByrd – Make Money Take Money ft. Snug B
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I don’t know how to define where I’m from, but I was born in the Philippines and now 5 states later am in Texas! Florida raised, Texas made all day!
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Make Money Take Money is a track I got from LexiBanks who is a great producer and this song is getting a lot of buzz in the streets. Djs are asking for drops for it, internet stations are emailing me about it, and me singing on the 2nd hook throws people. Yes, I was autotuned, but it sounds better in the song between me and Snugs voice!
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Me being a female! I wasn’t getting taken seriously, I was taken advantage of in some situations and not getting paid! Not anymore, I shut all the bullsh!t down. Being a model taught me some game people spit to get ahead for themselves and not to help everyone involved. I’m coming and they know now!
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Man I got robbed in Miami, they got my video footage with me and Pitbull, pictures we had taken with Russell Simmons, and my blackberry! My blackberry was the most important as I had my freestyles, ideas, and completed verses for my mixtape and because it was on the memory card it was gone! I’m coming back now finishing my mixtape and coming with better ideas in my opinion.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Janky ass promoters! All I will say is get it in writing, review all details multiple times so all parties understand, and don’t be afraid to speak up if something isn’t right!
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Don’t knock anyone’s hustle, swag, or way of thinking. Help each other out because if you are paying it forward to that many people nothing but good is bound to come back!
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Get in the streets and stop people, talk to them, make them listen and gain fans that way while not being afraid to venture out and go to other places. Sad but you will get more love out of town than in your own city. #TRUTH
