Check out the new song from S.O-Allstars – Money Train
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We are currently out of Junction City Kansas and we are where we are at today because of hard work, dedication, love for our craft, and the biggest reason of all: friends, family, and our supporters. We would be nowhere without a combination of all these ingredients.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
To be honest with you the song “Money Train” was first motivated by our lifestyle. We actually did hustle from Mon-Sun until music gave us another avenue, but I feel like anybody can relate to this song. It’s motivating and if you’re getting money illegally or legally then your on the right track. That’s what we call being on the “Money Train.”
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
One of the hardest challenges we face and are still currently facing is that the city we currently live in is not a hip-hop orientated town. We don’t even have a hip-hop station, but even with all that diversity we continue to push travel as much as we can to promote and get our music heard. I believe our determination is what got us on the nappy boy takeover.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
A huge set back for us is when the JCPD raided our house and took everything including our new and current music we were working on. It felt like a major blow to us but we stayed focused, kept making new material, and didn’t miss a beat as if nothing happened.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
As far as a business aspect, it’s self explanatory, don’t get fucked by promoters, club owners, artists, and record labels that want you to be satisfied with nothing. As far as an artist, don’t be content with your material, always try out due yourself and push the envelope further and further with each song, mixtape, or album.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Always do you, be original, don’t follow the trend, and always work hard because when you’re not in the studio someone else is! Work, work, work if this is truly what you want and don’t let nobody stop you or tell you otherwise.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
We promote mainly online: Facebook, Twitter, and a couple of local businesses are kind enough to sell our cds for us. But my favorite is when we go out of town and pass cds out ourselves. It’s always interesting, we like to interact with the people.
