Check out the new song from PlanetChipy – The Rap Game
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I was born and raised in the County of Dade. Growing up I went to mostly inner city schools where I caught on to the hip-hop lifestyle. After graduating from high school, I moved to Orlando with my best friend, Mark (Blak tha CEO). We both discovered our talents for music production.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Right now I’m focused on “The Rap Game” which is on my new mix tape, “Music n Chicken Wings.” I wrote this song because today’s generation feels that hip-hop is more of a style than a way of life. There’s too much focus on “swag.” After hearing Soulja Boy take a shot at the U.S. Army Troops, I had to write it.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
I’m white. hahahahaha.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
There are no setbacks when your goal is in front of you.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Nowadays the media is involved in everything. Artists need to be careful of what they say and how they say it. Even if they say the right thing in the right way, somebody can interpret it differently.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
There are always going to be the people who like you and like what you do and there are always going to be people who hate you and hate what you do. No matter who you’re dealing with you have to be confident in yourself and in what you do.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Growing up with a white mom, a Hispanic dad, and in a diverse city, I’ve learned to be able to communicate with anybody. I prefer to promote in person. I know how to draw crowds and when my fans are happy, I’m happy. Working with FW Productions and throwing crazy warehouse parties also helps.
