RVR: the New Face of Underground Hip Hop

//

Featured artist: RVR – RVR: the New Face of Underground Hip Hop

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

RVR: Just a desire to create and write. I have always had a deep love for music and I love creating. It gives me a platform to express how I am feeling on any given day.

Never do anything half assed. If you are going to do something, go balls to the wall.

RVR


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I play live as much as I possibly can.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

RVR abbreviation, Rumor vs Reality. But you can call me Roddy Ray or Miss Congeniality

RVR

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

I am currently working on my mixtape, which is yet untitled. I have realeased a lot of songs in the past, even when I wasnt doing Hip Hop, I was recording and releasing rock and acoustic stuff.

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

I dont think I would. There is obvious pros in the fact that there is more money put behind you. But I think that so many times, people get lost in the industry, and forget about the music. People get caught up in that ”pussy, money, weed” lifestyle and forget that they are there to make quality music.

Any last words?

I want to give a shoutout to my Mom, of course. Noone has been a bigger supporter, or a bigger inspiration than her. To watch her work three and four jobs, and come home crying every night, just to provide for us, was so inspiring. I also want to give a big shoutout to my boys Looie Zepplin of Magik City Music Group and Filthy McNasty! And of course, a shoutout to Montana! Rep that 406!

Mr. Fleshtastic!

//

Featured artist: Elzintheflesh – Mr. Fleshtastic!

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

Elzintheflesh: Well I grew up playing different instruments(a little keys, trumpet, drums) in different churches in the Chicago land area and I loved music. I wrote poetry in school as well, an realized that I was good with putting my words together in the form of a rhyme. I began making my own beats with FL Studio, which wasn’t too big back then because it was just coming out, but when I was about 12 yrs old I annoyed my aunt Joan and uncle Phil for weeks about buying a mic and recording program and it’s been a part of my journey ever since. I recorded alot of inspirational songs with a couple buddys of mine under the name ”Da Messengas” and would perform them at youth church events. Once I got to high school I began to vibe with a local rap group by the name of ”UPT” and eventually started producing a few tracks with them. At the time, they didn’t know that I could rap as well but eventually that all changed. Once I saw the potential that we all had to make it bigger than we were, I took on the role as a producer/artist and I’ve been rocking with it ever since. The talent that I have is not by accident, but simply God given.

Evern though you are an artist be sure to learn the business, and continue perfecting your craft.

Elzintheflesh


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do perform live with my fellow Dream Seeker Ceo/Artist Ray Keller, and it’s always a blessing to see people wanting to hear and enjoy the positive progressive Hip Hop & R&B that we bring to the table.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

”Now adays every rapper feel some type of way, aint richer than homie so they feel the need to grab a ”K”, I’m speaking life through the speakers not tryna lead astray, just spreading light like a teacher so we see brighter days…”

Elzintheflesh

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

Right now my focus is producing. Ray Keller has a project that we have been working on, as well as another arist from our label named A.N.Teezy; so look out for those projects in 2015. The first album I released was called ”A Night On Elzbeatz” which is a compilation of all my production featuring artists from Chicago, Tennessee and Florida. I did a joint album with Ray as well called ”Poetry In Motion”. Both are available on the Dream Seeker website.

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

I would sign with a major label if the deal was right. Right now I am a producer/artist for an indepent record label called Dream Seeker Records, LLC and I love the fact that I have control on the type of music that I make and put out.

Any last words?

I want to S/O the whole Dream Seeker crew! I love and appreciate you all for who you are and what we are destined to be. You all keep me motivated so lets keep rockin’. Shout out to the whole 1 Take Mafia family back in the Chi, yall boys keep rockin’, and shout out to HiSociety and all my family back in Turks & Caicos.
From TCI to the Chi to the Fla it’s all love from Elzintheflesh.
1Love
