Featured artist: Reason – Life Is Music
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Reason.
How did you decide to become an artist?
Reason: I started as a huge fan of hiphop, 90's g-funk era but anything that displayed lyrical ability and meaningful lyrics. The two combined especially. 2Pac, BTNH, Scarface, Z-Ro The list goes on. Poetry always came easy for me, I began to freestyle with peers at first then started to write lyrics to beats.. no structure just bars. Was really just something for fun. Beginning in 2010 for fun now this past year actually being more serious working on first tape,
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I've done a couple open mics where it was well received. Besides that, no. Just live rapping in front of people I share music with,
Best punchline you ever wrote?
writing up prescriptions, if you fill 'em they get paid * its really such a shame to have a system ran by banks * little pills to the numb pain gettin cleared by F D A * and we believe it all its imprinted in our brains * they broadcasting the news its more scripted than a play * putting pictures up in frames, all the images are fake * stories written on the page causing visions with a haze * all the prisoners are slaves, fallen victims to the hate *
