Featured artist: Saf (Saf, the Artist) – The aspiring DIY stay at home SoundCloud rapper.
As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Saf (Saf, the Artist) from Kansas City 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, Saf (Saf, the Artist)! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Saf (Saf, the Artist): Funny thing is, growing up I had no talents, until one day I got called out to rap a J.B song at school and failed publicly. The next day I tried again and felt, woah, this is actually fun.
What was the best advice given to you as an artist? “That you don’t need to pay for a studio, you can record with free software and do it all from home with the internet.”
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I haven’t played yet, but look forward to it. I have not done any concerts but a year from now, hopefully I’ll have a strong enough fan base to start performing. I’m going to be a Marine and will start Boot Camp December 3rd and get out sometime this March. When out I plan on going stronger with my music.
