As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist EvilEyE from Crewe 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, EvilEyE! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

EvilEyE: Growing up I way always a big fan of music and poetry, So when Em dropped "The Eminem Show" I was 10 Years old & the rest was history, 8 years later adapted my story's into songs, Using my music to gain respect in my local community & Music scene. Gunna use my voice to change the world.

A brother once told me a vial piece of advice
"The record company's the pimp,
The artist is the hoe,
The stage is the corner,
And the audience is the trick," – Ice Cube

What about concerts? Do you play live?

Ye I live for doing live shows, Always looking for opportunity's to preform on stage. Cant beat that feeling, when People are bumping your shit with you. As an artist concerts are vital for connecting with existing & new fans, These days you have to do more then just jump on stage and spit bars. Audience connection is everything in this world of minimal attention spans.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

"Freeman, Freemason, You're love was miss placed when./ You chose them over me now I'm comin for blood like an ovary." – Hell & Back

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

So now I'm currently working on rerecording & mastering the "Foundation Mix Tape" originally released in 2015. I have more time and a Archive of new skills to help me execute this new project, to a level I'll be happy with.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Given the right opportunity yes for sure I would who wouldn't, But that don't mean I would just sign to anyone. You've gota play it smart in the game, Like, there's no point getting signed to a major with an nice advance then getting shelf ed, Or not having a creative construct within which to create your music, I mean you could gain instant fame over night, But what are you doing to get that and is that what you set out to be. Integrity is everything, Sayin that if "Strange music" or "Undercover Prodigy"come hollerin I'ma listen. There two platforms that go hand and hand with the movement.

Any last words?
