Check out the new song from YP – Grindin’
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
Born and raised in Minnesota. I started off writing rhymes just for fun, then I actually started recording music in the middle of 9th grade about a year ago. As I started releasing more music, more people were feeling my tracks. And I linked up with Jado, the owner of Minnesota based record Label called Velvo Records, and I began working with and recording in their studio, and things are just starting to take off now.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Right now I’m promoting my latest single “Grindin’” featuring Fly Henderson, but I’m starting to promote my next single from my upcoming mixtape, the song is called “Hold it Down” which will be released sometime this month.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
The biggest challenge I had was getting my music heard by the right people. It took me about a year to really start getting my music out there to the right folks.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Thankfully so far in my career I haven’t had any big set backs. Everything’s been running pretty smooth for the most part.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
The biggest thing to be careful of is to lose yourself. Stay real. Don’t let anybody change you. And don’t take criticism too hard to yourself, just brush it off, and keep working through it, and improve upon it.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Grind as hard as you can. Put your music all over the internet, network with people on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, any where possible. And do some ground work too, hand out flyers, CDs, and record as much as possible, even if you don’t release it.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Twitter and Facebook are by far my favorite ways to promote my music, it’s a quick easy way to get in contact with the right folks. And get your music heard.
