Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Crux Mottolo! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Crux Mottolo: I was lucky enough to be a teen in the mid to late 90's when rap was at it's best imho, and just became obsessed with it to the point that I knew I had to represent it, rapping became a hobby until I got introduced to other emcees in my town who recognized I had skills and invited me to join their crew.
Never stop. Keep making moves, keep creating. Also work on your art every day. No days off.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I've performed many times live. As a a solo artist, which is what I am nowadays, I've only done 2 live shows.
