The Resurrection of Hip Hop

//

Featured artist: RapStarr – The Resurrection of Hip Hop

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

RapStarr: From listening to artists like Eminem and 50 Cent. I started being interested in the actually art of emceeing at the age of 9. I started to battle kids my age in my area, then I would write down songs expressing certain feelings I had. It was like therapy for me, and listening to Eminem really gave me the idea to write. Listening to 50 Cent and G Unit, I’ve became serious into becoming a hip hop artist, I wanted to become a legend.

Be yourself, it is ok to have influences and search for new avenues, but don’t make music based on what is popular. Create your own lane, if you sound like the majority of the artist that is out now, you are not giving the audience a reason to listen to you rather than the people you emulate. And other artist should learn other ways to make money in the industry, music alone isn’t paying the bills. Learn to become a business man/woman.

RapStarr


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes I do, the first show I have done was back in 2012. I opened up for Hopsin in my city of Pittsburgh. I just recently had a concert in January 11, 2015.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

IF YOU ASK ME-ITS REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY, EXTINCTION OF A BLACK MEN-ITS REVERSE BIOLOGY,

RapStarr

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

I am currently working on my 2nd mixtape called ”No Warning Shots…Just Straight Shootin”. My first mixtape was called ”The Resurrection of Hip Hop”. That was released back in 2014, the singles are up on my soundcloud.

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

Yes I would if if met all my requirements. The pros of signing to a major label is the distribution and label backing. The cons is they might want you to change your style, there is not artist development anymore so most labels are picking random artist and not teaching them or guiding them. Its all money making to them, no consideration of the artist. No at but the majority think that way.

Any last words?

I wanna shout out to the Most High. A shout out to all my supporters in Mexico and Puerto Rico. Shout out to ATL (rap group from Ghana, Africa). Shout out to Ms. B, G.A. Barz, Lloyd Maz, Meezy BaddAzz, all my past producers Twist Wun, Tia Cooper (TrackMailBeats), and Dj Fusion. Shout out to my city Pittsburgh, Pa and to all the East Coast, shout to all my Chicanos, my Boricuas.

Chiefin

Featured artist: epill – Chiefin

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

epill: I was in middle school when I first started writing and I fell in love with the craft ,,,never looked back,,,
it was something in the way it made me feel about my surroundings and myself,, I grew up with a lot of obstacles to overcome and was lucky to realize that channeling my thoughts and feelings on wax was something people wanted to hear because they felt it too..so when I got that first dose of love in return for my craft it was a wrap…or (rap) haha

stay up and hold it down… an easy translation would be make a way without changing who you are..

epill


What about concerts? Do you play live?

of course we do shows and appearances when the oppertunnitys present themselves but up to this point weve done more lab work trying to ccreate our own sound as well as getting the quality to a sufficient level ..

Best punchline you ever wrote?

epill

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

ive got 3 cds on the market so far since 2012..the latest dropped right before this last xmas and is titled (chiefin)

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

it all comes down to the situation… our music is very diverse so id have to be comfortable knowing they wer going to allow me to be me.. but who wouldnt want huge promo budgets and mass acclaim? but again its not worth my soul..I couldnt see the point of being famous for being someone elses image.

Any last words?

I wanna shot out my camp savage sounds ent.

Who is IAM PREP

//

Featured artist: IAM PREP – Who is IAM PREP

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist IAM PREP.

How did you decide to become an artist?

IAM PREP: Well my whole entire family is musical talented. Mom, aunts, and grandma play piano. My uncle plays saxophone and bass guitar, I play drums and trombone. So I was always around music, it was everywhere. What got me into rap was my big cousins and friends were performing at a talent show. I went and fell in love with Hip-hop music. Still it wasn’t until a couple years later I started still, but I was writing a journal everyday. One day listening to cassette tape I was writing and the instrumental came on, for some reason I just started rapping my journal to it. After a while it just happened

One life to live, one life to cherish. I’m in it for it all before my name perish

IAM PREP


What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes, I love the stage. I wish I could be on it more but why every artist on their hustle

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Everybody claim real, but they don’t know what is fake/ always on my grind, so I know what it takes/ to make it through the storm when the forecast wrong

IAM PREP

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

I just released Money Chase The movie on my website (www.iamprep.com) which is my first ever short film. Working on new projects to begin releasing this spring and more projects.

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

No, in the many chances I ve had to I didn’t then. If you got the right people/ links around you and discipline you can become your own machine. When the only thing you will need is distribution, but still I believe there is a way to do it yourself. At the same time I don’t know, its not something I’m focused on right now. It is so much more t hat matters right now

Any last words?

Special shot out to God, I’ve overcame and made it through a lot to still be here. Shot out to my family, my homies, shawties, Djs, promoters, photographers, producers, sound engineers, studios, radio stations, websites, blogs, and most important my fans. Without y’all none of this is possible, it takes a team to really achieve things in life. Got to be grateful. This also includes people I haven’t worked with yet because we are the reason any of this exists

Where can we contact you?

IAM PREP: www.iamprep.com

Thank you for your time. We wish you and your career the success it deserves.

How Do You D.Y.D? Phantom of Do YOUR Dance

//

Featured artist: Phantom – How Do You D.Y.D? Phantom of Do YOUR Dance

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

Phantom: Originally I did not like rapping oddly enough, but my cousin Sam Bell encouraged me to keep up with it after he stopped. I was too shy but eventually I needed an outlet better than punching walls, and I picked up a pen and pad a couple years later and ended up writing a for 5 pages straight and knew I had to do this.
Then my manager Lindsey Lerner came up with this great idea to make a movement and take it past the music.

When my manager was talking with Charley Johnson, the creator of the Pay it Forward movement he told us, ”Stop, stop going after the ”big”people to work with them or for them and do it for yourselves. You’re the only person who wants this in the world.”

Phantom


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I love playing live! We have had concerts in 8 cities and 2 different countries with crowds of 1 person to hundreds. Playing live is one of my favorite parts because I am able to get on stage and let everything go.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Have you ever met a hater doing better than you?

Phantom

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

The following are links of our entire project written by reporter Matt Bower: http://ift.tt/1C6AONh, http://ift.tt/1xYgcQF and http://ift.tt/1C6AQVp

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

Although it would be nice to have the capital we need quickly by signing with a label, what we are building with D.Y.D would not be possible. Do YOUR Dance – D.Y.D is about finding your passion, following it through and then telling us about it! We are having D.Y.D shows with artists who are doing just that in every city we go to!

Any last words?

I come from a place where trap music is big and since I don’t do trap music it has always been an odd situation for me. I would love to give a shout out to; Skrooge, my engineer, producer, and director, Sonny Rithms another amazing producer, John Ott, a great rapper, Michel, an incredible band, and Grease for letting me start out in his studio. The list doesn’t end there, there has been so many helpful people in this entire process, but also a lot of snakes as well.

Matt Bower for writing this incredible article: http://ift.tt/1C6AQVp

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Gh0$T D00G.

I would never sign with a label soley because I want my music to be natural and unadultered by a corporation attempting to market and commercialize the message we’re all trying to spread to the masses

Underground rapper in Qatar rising!

//

Featured artist: Point Blanc – Underground rapper in Qatar rising!

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Point Blanc.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Point Blanc: I’ve always loved rap since a young age. I would listen to various artists ranging from Capital Steez to Tupac. After a while I just started Freestyling with my friends, they would always praise me. I decided to start writing songs and when I got into the habit of doing that I just thought to myself: ”Why not buy a microphone”. When I bought my first Microphone I fell in love with rapping myself, and decided to pursue it.

Always stay original, do not seek to much inspiration and keep grinding until you’ve made it.

Point Blanc


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I have not had the opportunity to play live yet.

”Passing rhymes around like Meralim Pjanic”

Any last words?

I wanna shoutout to my friends who have supported me along my entire journey. My parents for letting me do this and supporting me as well. Also i’d like to shoutout to my hometown Poortugaal back in Holland, living there for the first 9 years of my life taught me a lot, and when I moved to Doha, Qatar, it made me realise that not everybody is as lucky as I am.

From Minor to Major. An Underground Artist who is a legitimate threat to mainstream hip hop’s top artist

//

Featured artist: WAITA – From Minor to Major. An Underground Artist who is a legitimate threat to mainstream hip hop’s top artist

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

WAITA: I decided to become an artist when I started to invest in my talent/music financially. Also when I started writing and recording quality music. Any and everybody can rap now a days, but everybody can’t make GOOD music/quality songs.

The best advice i was given as an artist was to never stop grinding or working on my craft. When the Majority are sleep, i need to be awake working on making my next song(s). Go Hard or Go Home.

WAITA


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do perform live. My Last performance was at the shrine lounge in Harlem NYC. I’ve got a couple of performances coming up in the next few months as well.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I flow fire, hotter than devil urine/std free but ima leave you pussy’s burning/ Couldn’t see me with a pair of bifocals/I play my cards right, i’m the high joker/ You can try to front when you approach us it don’t scare me/ I’ll turn your ass into venison if we deer-meat

WAITA

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

My current project ”The Wait is Over Vol.2”, will be my 3rd mixtape in 8 months. I’m also working on my 1st book which i’m also trying to pitch as a reality tv show.

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

I would sign to a major label. The only problem would be the terms of the contract. How much advance money are they going to give me? How long do i have to stay with the label? What percentage of my publishing and royalties do they want, etc. Regardless i’m going to get jerked out of some money. Sad but true, got to pay your due’s i guess. You can’t escape the rape, it happens to damn near everybody.

Any last words?

Big Shout to my T.S.G family(Tilden Street Gangsta’s), The Bronx NYC, Richmond and Petersburg VA, Longevity Recording studio, and everybody who’s been listening/supporting my music.

//

Featured artist: GODFREEKID – ”GODFREEKID”, Satanic Artist And Leader Of The Black Mass Cult

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

GODFREEKID: I have always been involved in music and art since i was very young. I started out by promoting and putting together punk/ska/hardcore shows when i was 16. From there i decided i wanted to be the one making the music and not just work behind the scenes, so I decided to start a band. After about 10 years of singing in bands i decided to take a break from music and focus more on tattooing and painting. Then 4 years later i met my producer ”Nathaniel Essex” and tried my luck with hip-hop and have been doing it ever since.

Always be artistic and constantly push my limits and boundries

GODFREEKID


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I love to perform live and do concerts whenever i get the chance.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I fuck your face untill my dick is bloody, raw, and sore.

GODFREEKID

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

I recently released my debut full length album, ”666 Ways To Die” this past year and am currently working on my sophmore album, ”The Black Mass” which drops summer 2015 as well as a mixtape with my boy Fred Dukes called ”Adventure Time” which drops March 2015.

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

I would sign with a major label only if i got to keep 100% of my artistic virtue and didnt have to change my persona to sell my music.

Any last words?

Gotta give mad love to everyone representing my camp, ”Sinister Muzic” especially my producer Nathaniel Essex. Also gotta give love to my boy Spitz and all the fam over at Siferian Records.

Best Celtic Rapper Alive!

//

Featured artist: Sceltic – Best Celtic Rapper Alive!

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

Sceltic: Through numerous years of listening to Rap/Hip-Hop and through the inspiration of one of my friends.

The best advice I was given was to always pursue your dream, to never back down from the hate and to push through the darkness; you’ll find light soon!

Sceltic


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do not play live nor do I perform in concerts; not yet anyway.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

”I’ve been blind sided by panic and worried by woe, you act all satanic, break my heart; hurt my soul.”

Sceltic

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

I recently released a new single entitled: Another Tear, which is a song dedicated to the pain of rejection, (yet again). I have already written more songs and have one waiting for my father and another about suicidal thoughts.

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

I would definitely sign a record contract with a major label. The pros of this would be exposure and hopefully fame will follow. The cons; well, it can be a hassle and pressure can get the best of even the least stressed person.

Any last words?

I, Sceltic, represent all the small town country peeps who were told it was not normal to want to rap. For all those who say rap is not a hard skill to possess and that rapping in general is nothing but speaking fast to a beat.

Featured artist: Maserati Mango – Grind now Play later

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Maserati Mango.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Maserati Mango: My cousin Fabion used to play around a lot when we was kids and rap about almost anything off the top of his head and I always looked up to him he introduced me to music and I used to rap to myself in the bathroom because I was too shy to rap around him because I was not advanced like him. So I used to get bored in class and wrote raps and I was like this kinda dope I talked to Fabion and he was like whatever you choose to do im behind you run with it and I have not looked back since.

i waa told always stay consistent and invest in yourself.

Maserati Mango


What about concerts? Do you play live?

yes I love performing I used to be nervous and could never perform without my shades on when on stage well that changed.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

overlooking Vegas while I’m counting out a bankroll reminiscing back when I barely used to have clothes/ now the tables turned and ain’t it funny just how life goes make juice out every lemon that this bitch called life throw/ sometimes you crap out because that’s just how the dice roll/ and watch ya close friend cuz when ya back turnt that’s where the knife go/ -Millionaire Dreams

Maserati Mango

I am currently working on my new mixtape titled Mango Gone Bananas, its a follow up from my last mixtape which is called Maserati Muszik which is available for download on datpiff.com search maserati mango

yesi would but the numbers would have to be right I feel like I have so much to offer as an artist and if I get to actually showcase my talents and be able to express my creativity as an artist with no limitations I’m all for it, pros of signing is hefty financial backing and all the resource you need are at your fingertips and if done right you can become an overnight sensation, the con’s is you being afraod of failure and trying not to flop yourbdirst time around the block as well as if you are independent you see a much bigger profit and you own your music.

Any last words?

Yeah actually I want to shout out God for always being there from the good and the bad, I would also like to thank my mother Lisa McCall because although I’m sure she would have rather me go to college in decided to pursue music and she was all for it very supportive, my Fiance for always being there and my daughter Kadence for being my inspiration and motivation when I want to quit.

What’s Pittsburgh without Guala

//

Featured artist: Guala – What’s Pittsburgh without Guala

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

Guala: well it’s funny because I never thought I would become a artist. When I was young, my mother stayed playing music around the house because she’s a singer. She always watched every award show and music video that came out, so music was constantly around me and my family. I was always musically inclined but I didn’t want to become a rapper. I was always involved in some extra curricular activity like basketball, playing the drums or singing for my church. Its when I moved down Charlotte NC with my mom that I discovered I could rap. My best friend Jamie Brown aka Maxxbrown was in a rap group down charlotte called QBC that we both were in and he introduced me to the studio for the first time, from there on thats when I fell in love with rapping and a lot of people told me I had a gift for it.(Lol, funny how life takes it courses)

No natter what life’s throws in front of you,make sure you stay true to yourself and your music because people want real and not an imposter.

Guala


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I love performing for people,at heart I am entertainer. This past year I have performed at numerous events around the city of Pittsburgh and not once have I had an unsatisfying performance.I love the energy I get from the crowd, it makes me go harder at what I do. I don’t care if its 20-500 people in the building I make sure EVERYONE is involved when I hit the stage, so if you see Guala on a poster or flyer,make sure you come check me out. I promise to give you an amazing show.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

”I been though love and pain,I swear these Bxxxxxx ain’t shxt because they be playing games, be carefully with nixxas riding they just shoot with no aim”

Guala

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

I’m currently working on my next Single dropping on Valentines day this year called ”Bonnie” prod.by SwaggB I also have a Single out right now called”NaNaNa” prod. by Omitbeats. I’m also working on my solo project ( Unknown Title) coming soon and working on my group project ( Pa$osGang) mix tape called ”PG13” dropping later this year so make sure yall keep a lookout

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

Honestly, I’m not a 100% sure just yet. I learned as a Artist you have to learn this business before you wanna sign any contract for any record label because the game just isn’t the same anymore. I learned you have to know the Ins and Out’s of the music industry because if you don’t your gonna get yourself involved in something you can’t get yourself out of all because of the lack of KNOWLEDGE to this business. In the meantime tho, im focused on building my Brand as an independent artist,tryna build a strong fan base, evolving, making a name for myself.Far as a label, when that time comes will see, but right now I’m focus on creating good music & being independent for now.

Any last words?

I wanna give a S/o to my hometown Pittsburgh,All my supporters,all my friends and family, everyone who contributed in all my upcoming projects,All the vendors and promoters who been showing me love at my performances,All the producers and artist who let me feat on their upcoming project, S/o ODH & Pa$osGang, S/o to everyone down Charlotte who’s been showing mad love. I appreciate it. Thank you

Hard Work Pays Off: A Introduction To Pittsburgh Lyricist, Sosa

//

Featured artist: Sosa – Hard Work Pays Off: A Introduction To Pittsburgh Lyricist, Sosa

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

How did you decide to become an artist?

Sosa: I’ve always had a love for music, i tell anyone that before the career choice i was a fan first. From finding new artists to check out on blogs to listening to the latest mixtapes and albums, i can say that the hip hop culture has always been apart of my life. From the age of 13, i had a love for freestyling & spitting the newest rhymes i wrote in my notebook over instrumentals, years later (my senior year in high school) at 17 was the first time i ever recorded in a real studio and from that day on i kept at it & it has become a big part of my life since then. Most people wanna live this lifestyle because of the perks that come with it if you make it far but to me, i chose to be a artist because of the people, to educate them, receive feedback, & support from your fan base is most important to me

The best advice i’ve recieved so far as a artist came from my manager & videographer out here in Pittsburgh, Sydney Hefflin. She reminds me daily, ’’Don’t depend on another person to make your dream come true for you, it is yours for a reason and you have to work hard everyday to bring your vision to light.’’

Sosa


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I’ve done alot of shows locally here in Pittsburgh the last 2 years and i even got a chance to perform in New York in 2014. I always look forward to performances because its dope to introduce yourself and your work to a new group of people, i love hearing feedback from the audience, good or bad, and i stand by my own saying that no matter if its 2 or 20,000 people, my job as a artist is to put on a solid performance for the fans & make sure they had a dope experience during the time that we shared together.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

’’I’m jordan winning the 6th one, tyson in his prime, they say im a born winner, im crack back in the 80s, they fiending for more nigga, this something you born with it, martin luther had a dream and i’m carrying on with it’’.

Sosa

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

I recently released my latest single, ’’Letter To Arthur Pitt’’ & Also my 5th offical project is nearing completion and set for a release on April 6th, titled ’’Gift To The Streets’’. This is defintely one of my best projects to date & this time around, I wanna make sure for this project has something for everyone to enjoy, from songs for the club to music with meaning & true lyricism, whatever your musicial preference is, “Gift To The Streets” will have something on there for you to vibe out & enjoy.

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

My goal for right now is to stay independent as long as i can, I know down the line if i make it to that big level, the majors will come into play and i will have to make a decision on what i wanna do but at the moment me and my business partner & manager as well, Sydney Hefflin (Owner Of Fly Forever Productions) are committed to working hard & taking our brands to the next level.

Any last words?

I wanna give a s/o to my moms & little brother, all my close friends & family members , My ODH & Fly Forever Productions Family, Pittsburgh hip hop & the Eastside section of my city as a whole & all independent artists and entrepreneurs working hard to make their dreams come true.

365 days

//

Featured artist: Christopher Evol – 365 days

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Christopher Evol.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Christopher Evol: I don’t think I decided. I feel like art happened to me. I have been fortunate enough to have been exposed to all sorts of work, and creating just became part of who I am. I love art and live for it.

When critics are in disagreement about a work of art it shows that it is vital. An artist can express anything.

Christopher Evol


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I was an actor before I became a poet. Hundreds of performances, my poetry came out of a deep desire to express myself rather than a character. Yes I perform live, and am aspiring to do full shows.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

I have the mental capacity to put gravity in an envelope and send it in the mail to my kin folk.

Christopher Evol

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

365 days of documented poetry. I have not yet released an album, I want it to be perfect before I do.

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

It depends. Mostly on creative control and freedom. I can’t say no.

Any last words?

Much respect to my family and friends who have been so supportive. Also a special shout out to Jeremy Blair.

Johnny Quest: Growing up in L.A was always hard, and hip-hop music always helped me channel my inner feeling. I use to write down lyrics well i was in high school. I loved listening to 2pac. He has inspired me to carry on with this rap game and concour anything in the way of my goal.

To never give up and to keep grinding until you make it big
