Featured artist: Behno – Get 2 Know Chicago's Upcoming Artist Behno
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Behno.
How did you decide to become an artist?
Behno: It all started when I was 12. I was always into music so I would just write lyrics down and rap it to my homies. They will always tell me it's ok keep working. I got locked up my senior year in high school bonded out and met a guy from New York who had his own in-home studio. They persuaded me to get on the mic, so I remixed The Game Hate It Love It Beat. Everybody in the studio was going crazy like you killed that shit. That help me build my confidence up & ever since then I stuck with it.
The best advice given to me was be yourself. You see so many artist out here now days getting exposed because they rapping about a life they never lived or always tryna be tough on social media. Everything I put in my music is based off what I lived, seen and been through. No Exaggeration!
What about concerts? Do you play live?
No I do not play live, but It's something I been interested in doing. Haven't done any big concerts yet, but you can catch me performing at local clubs & bars across Chicago.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
I'm off the Henny I'm blowin smoke just like a chimney, I'm on nat bullshit I came to play like Rose & Jimmy
