Featured artist: Alfonse Capone – One of the Best in the Midwest
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Alfonse Capone.
How did you decide to become an artist?
Alfonse Capone: Well I like to say I didn’t choose hiphop, hiphop chose me. Music is my first love. Since I was a toddler I wanted to be a music artist. Singing was not my forte, and my mom couldn’t afford guitar lessons or anything like that. When I heard my first hiphop track that was it. This is something relative to me. The flow came naturally from a young age, and writing poetry also. If you can write a good poem you can be a dope lyricist. If you possess any kind of rhythm you can ride the beat. Both of these skills came easily to me. So when I was teenager I looked for anybody in the hood, who might have mixer and a mic. That is how I recorded my first 16 or 32 bars . I don’t know was just excited to be recording something…Lol!
Don’t quit! The day you quit the following day could have been the day you were going to make it.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Yes I do perform live. I have not giving a concert yet, but I’m working on it.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
I get low like a criminal yet Im more esoteric than the metaphysical/ In a way my style is biblical and I drip just little bits of residuals to stimulate your subliminal
