Check out the new song from Kyle Oksten – Revamp
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I’m from New Jersey. I got to where I am from different rappers that I’ve gotten influence from. I grew up listening to Eminem and from then on I knew it’s what I wanted to do. So I slowly started to pursue it to this day.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
The current song I’m trying to promote is Revamp. It’s about overcoming struggles and making it to new heights you never thought you could; it’s something I feel others can relate to fairly easily.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
One of the hardest challenges would have to be many people not taking me seriously or not even giving me a chance, but to those people you gotta show them how wrong they are.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
A big set back would have to be not knowing how to distribute music or who to come in contact with. Also one would be people not believing in me.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Artists need to be careful not to be too cocky, a big ego that you can’t back up will make you stand out for all the wrong reasons.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Always lead off with your best foot, meaning your best lyrics and beats. Don’t let others put you down, keep your head up, and do what you enjoy.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
My favorite way to promote myself is YouTube and in school, these are two great avenues to get your name out there.
