As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Chianti from Marshall 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, Chianti! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Chianti: I have always loved music and growing up in the ghetto I got to see a lot of things kids my age shouldn't see but it made me the man that I am today and I want to use my music to tell my story.
Come up with a business plan and make sure you research and try to learn as much about the music business as possible before you jump into this industry.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I do concerts and I have opened up for a few major artist. I am currently planning a live concert for my next single I am dropping in a few weeks.
