Check out the new song from Young Chizz – Swagger On A Million
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I am from Jamaica Queens, New York City. The big apple (lol). I got where I am today by not quitting, not settling, being persistent, and not listening or surrounding myself around any negative people.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
The debut single is “Swagger On A Million.” This is a very hard record. It basically explains where I stand as far as trends go. I don’t follow them, I set them. I do the complete opposite of what everyone else is doing. I’ve never been a follower. The song is climbing the Mediabase charts as we speak, the video is on MTV and VEVO.com so go check it out if you haven’t seen it already.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
The hardest challenge was coming to accept what the industry really is. It’s a business. Talent is the bare minimum of what you need to get by. When I first started rapping in the 9th grade I thought it was all about talent, but now I know. If I knew then what I know now I would have reached this point years ago.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Biggest setback was becoming a solo artist. I was in a duo before and things didn’t work out as we planned, but that’s still my brother and we are moving forward.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Fantasy (lol). Everything isn’t what it seems to be. Be careful of people who want to offer you the world and can’t even give you a block.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Go hard, no pain no gain. You have to sacrifice to make it. Sometimes it may feel like you gave everything up. But when you gave it your all and you feel like you have nothing left, and your ready to quit, that’s when it’s close.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
I love to perform. I love to be on the stage, I love all my fans. I love when the beat drops and I black out. I get in my zone.
