Featured artist: IAM PREP – An artist you should go listen to
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist IAM PREP.
How did you decide to become an artist?
IAM PREP: Back in Middle School I wrote a daily journal about my day (i’m the only child) and at the end of the journal i’ll re-read it. I happen to one day be reading while listening to an instrumental on the old school cassette tapes you could buy at the gas station with the song, edited version, and instrumental. Out of nowhere I just started rapping it to the beat. It was horrible but I understood what I wrote more by hearing it. After that wasn’t until High School I got in my first recording studio (Acid pro 4 at my friends house) and that started it all. Music to me is my own personal therapy, some songs are personal and the rest was me challenging my writing skills but it’s mainly for me to hear what was on my heart at the time. Plus, I’ve been involved in music my whole life so I was going to fall in this path it seems regardless
You get what you put into it, half ass it, half ass results. It’s your career or your little hobby, your choice
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Yes, the stage is where I feel alive. I love the spotlight and attention, I love to be center of attention. I actually just got off my First tour booked by me. Mostly in my state (North Carolina) but also parts of the East Coast. It damn near ran me broke at times, but I will do it again just smarter. Best time of my life to travel but mainly meet and network with new fans. Greatest moments thus far of my life especially with my bros and I seek FREE SHOWS to my fanlist and social media followers
Best punchline you ever wrote?
We live to gain wisdom just to die for a lesson- Iam Prep
