As part of our ongoing “Raps New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist c.y. the ruler from Rockingham 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, c.y. the ruler! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
c.y. the ruler: i decided to become an artist at the age of sixteen. at first it was for the glory , but as i grew older and made children the money became the biggest reason. i always loved music i was raised in the era of jeezy, t.i., pimp c etc. i looked up to all of them
the best advice given to me as an artist was to do it yourself.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
i used to give concerts but i slowed down to build up more material.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
niggas want me dead or alive. so i step with a 9. thatll seperate ya head from ya spine.
