Featured artist: Star UTG – A Star Emerged
As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Star UTG from St. Louis 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, Star UTG! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Star UTG: I decided to become an artist at an earlier age when I visited my brother out of state and his friend was and artist going to the studio on the regular. This friend had albums he were selling and even featured my cousin on a song and that was cool to me. I felt I could rap better than this friend and wanted to join the music world myself.-
The best advice I received was to keep making music and performing because there will always be a hand full of people that will not want to see you advance in your career whether you know them or not.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I perform at concerts often with the opportunities to perform in Texas, Ohio, Illinois, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
“There’s no bunk beds for a coffin so I’m all alone. I flip the bird like my finger, so I stand alone.”
