As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Fogey from Wenatchee 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, Fogey! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Fogey: Been writing poetry since grade school. I was a teenager when I started putting rhymes to beats, and it just continued to build from there. Wasn't really a choice to become an artist, but it was a choice to become serious about it.
The best advice given to me as an artist, was to be patient. Nothing in this industry comes easily, and never overnight.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I do play live, I have been doing live shows for over 10 years. One of my favorite parts of making music.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
"You should emulate my rhymes, cause my lines are Zen; created by the Divine, they just find my pen."
