Featured artist: Skitzo – Skitzo of ActRight Records Exclusive Interview

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Skitzo.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Skitzo: I always wanted to be able to express myself and my emotions. At the time I had trouble doing it verbally, so I took to writing. Eventually I started record and the rest is history.

always be yourself. dont try to be something youre not.

Skitzo


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Its been a while since I have performed live, but I would again if the situation came up.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Theres too many to choose from. im the punch line king. yall have to listen to my music and chose for yourself.

Skitzo

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

We just released ’Summer Heat 2’ on Datpiff, and are currently working on ’Presidential’, ’POW’, and ’KPA Back In Business.’

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

No, never. Id rather come up independently. You lose too much if you sign. Youre not getting paid well, you dont own your music the label does, and you have to represent their image. you cant be you and do your own music.

Any last words?

Id like to give a shout out to the whole ActRight Records staff. My brother Rizzi Realz who puts in work with me. My bro Profit from FAA our Cali branch. And all the other artists im affiliated with from across the US that I collab with and work with on a constant basis.

RJ-K- IDDA!! WERE’VE YOU BEEN?

Featured artist: RJK – RJ-K- IDDA!! WERE’VE YOU BEEN?

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist RJK.

How did you decide to become an artist?

RJK: I decided to become an artist because I have always loved music, its a corny expression & many people say it but I felt like everything else in my life was ”the thing” on the side. Even at work I used to be singing & making my own words up to songs on the radio, I worked outside speaking to people for a living & when I told customers / work colleagues about my past as a dj etc at college, & my own skills as a singer/MC I always got praised and re uniting one afternoon with my old MC partner he recorded me freestyling & within a week I had social media requests from artists in my city who had heard me & wanted me to collaborate/gave me good feedback/gave me advice, & from then on I have been writing my mixtape. I have been in bad health since I was 18 and I have had 2 back surgeries so since my 1st surgery didn’t work & waiting for the second and since, music has been my outlet to get my emotions down and turn the negativity into a positive.

The best advice I have been given as an artist is to reply to my closest fans as much as possible and take a ”real” interest in their lives/projects/music to build a loyal fanbase who will stick by my music. The same guy (he was a fan but id now call him a friend) told me also not to criticise myself too much, make a mistake today to get it right tomorrow.

RJK


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes I do play live and my next performance is the 13th September 2014 at House Bold Street Liverpool. It is Royzy Rothschild’ single launch party & I was asked as a friend to perform among the best talent in my city.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

ill give ya real cos all the others wana hand ya fakeness, if ya sick a lame battles now is time to make make ya statement!

RJK

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I am working on a few projects at the moment, in the late spring I featured on top USA Mixtape Host DJ KONVICT 512’s GRINDIN’ ’N’ HUSTLIN’ WORLDWIDE 4 mixtape with the likes of top US rapper & producer Acehood. I released my own debut rap mixtape & I am hosting a mixtape called INNOVATIVE GRIND MUSIC GROUP Presents The British Invasion Hosted by RJK Innovative grind are a rap label in New York & they are also doing a 4 city UK tour next year that I have been asked to promote, host & perform at. I am currently also setting up my own independant label in Liverpool & a project called Radical Music Group’s Outreach Programme which is scouting talent, providing training and then putting on a showcase event for unsigned rappers singers and DJs.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes I would sign for a major label although I think a few pros and cons are; PRO’s the confidence boost form acceptance of a whole team of people who have taken chances on so many well known artists past and present, the obvious things that most people in life want for themselves and to know I can provide most things material for my family, gaining experience from the team of people at the labels disposal, CONS spending more time away from my family, the media exposure that comes with being an artist from a major label

Any last words?

Shout out to the wifey Heather C for always bein there & understanding when it doesnt go right, Shout to my man RaM for showin me the ropes & gettin me started on me path, Shout to Team Tactix especially Robert Slexic* Thompson for bein the man tellin me to keep pushin the pain and to keep gettin out there because the people wana see me performing so a big shout to him. Shout to Senzel Tenz for bein the go to man for advice & the man for the sick freestyle beats, Shout to R Lou & R Nicki for bein there to support me at my shows and bein the 1st ones to be at the front dancin, Shout to Mitch, Jack, Ben & Sean from the Ronfa & all the fans across the world France USA Germany Czech Republic Israel Nigeria & everywhere else

Upcoming rap artist Jonn Hart announces the release of “Heart 2 heart”, which will be available for download at the common mixtape platforms and Itunes on 2014-08-13.

During the last months Jonn Hart has firmly found his place within the rap world – when it comes to his “Sounds-Like” category, the best comparison might be Wiz Khalifa.

On his rapid rise to the top of the rap game, the Minnesota rapper strikes again with his much-anticipated project “Heart 2 heart”, which is now finally ready for the release.

Being in the studio day after day working on his latest project, the hungry young artist with an appetite for success, recorded and mixed “Heart 2 heart” almost completely alone within the last 3 months.

The project includes 5 songs with every beat handpicked, recorded and mixed by Jonn Hart himself, a blend of tracks that show Jonn Hart’s versatility and ability to make music, not just hip-hop.

When asked to give a description of the release, Jonn Hart summed up Heart 2 heart in just one word: “Freakilicious”.

Releasing this new project is a big step toward exposing the world to a skilled hip hop artist whose unique rhyming style is best described as laid-back.

The buzz is growing, the anticipating is thrilling, the momentum is rising – and driven forward by his undeniable passion for music Jonn Hart is set to make his mark.
