Link To New Artist Spotlight Playlists:
1. Tell us a little about where you are from and what you are currently doing.
I am from Venezuela, born and raised there, although I am currently in the Dominican Republic due to the civil chaos that occurred in my country at the beginning of 2015. Now I am 80% dedicated to music and the other percent I work as a bricklayer and designer graphic.
2. What inspired you to start playing and making music?
Although now I sing all kinds of musical genres, I started in this world with hiphop protest inspired by the government and police abuse that was experienced in my country and the songs that made me take that step were 2 of Michael Jackson's "Earth Song" and "They don't care about us" when I heard those songs I knew at that moment what I wanted to write and who I wanted to address at that moment.
𝟯. Who are your biggest influences?
One of my biggest influences in 50Cent because his life was very similar to what mine has been and he is a character with whom I could identify 90% and with whom I understood that "Some things happen for a greater good"
4. What are your goals in the music industry?
I really couldn't say that I want to achieve fame because I know how overwhelming it could be, but I want a lot of recognition and for my lyrics to reach people's hearts and to be able to make my lyrics feel like the listener is living them.
5. Tell us about your creative process when you make new music.
Haha it's ironic but it always happens to me like Eminem in 8 mile on a bus when I go somewhere I make a whole movie in my head, many times in beautiful landscapes and most of the time it depends a lot on my mood or when I take a shower hahahaha
6. What is your all-time favorite song?
Earth Song by Michael Jackson, this song demonstrates the true power of music even though people believe that sometimes music is just noise, it is so powerful that it can unite masses, eliminate enmities, restore nature, heal lovesickness, fall in love someone and could continue without finishing, so that's why that song and what it graphically demonstrates is and will be a song that I could never forget over time.
7. What is the best advice or council you have either given or received in terms of music?
I'm naturally a perfectionist, and the best thing they told me once was that being a perfectionist was a human flaw because sometimes we might have a small detail in a song that we personally don't like, but maybe that detail or mistake is what the listener likes and what could make your song a hit.
8. Proudest accomplishment?
One of the things that fills me with the most pride is that I am the author of all my songs and that I have made thousands of people sing my songs, make my mother cry with happiness while I sing, so far I think that has been the most outstanding so far.
9. What is something about you that might surprise someone who knows you the best?
I have come to live on the street selling illicit things, I came to take things that were not mine to sell them although I always did everything out of necessity but I was very young and before thinking about working I thought more about quick and easy money and I was also close to die some 3 times, which made me leave the street life.
𝟭0. Tell us about your highest and lowest points in music so far.
Hiphop has always been and will be music with very strong content which made my family reject me a lot in the beginning and make me become the black sheep of the family, also people who I believed my friends laughed that I wanted to be an artist they laughed of my music they pointed at me and said that I was only dreaming of fairy tales, and now the best thing in life is to see the same people saying that they always believed in my music, saying that I will go far even now they even sing my songs and it's something that fills me with joy.
