As part of our ongoing “Raps New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Cal-X from Phoenix to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Cal-X! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Cal-X: I just started writing. It’s aleays been that, writing. I started writing poems, then I tried writing books. Finally, I put some of my poems on top of beats and it stuck. From there, the process has been the same and I’ve tried to just capture how I’ve felt in a way people can relate to and appreciate.
Don’t look for validation! Be proud of your work even if everyone hates it.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Not yet, but I am looking forward to starting!
