Welcome to BuzzMusic, ARSN! Congratulations on the release of, “Dash for You.” With a mesmerizing song of this caliber, what did the creative process look like when bringing this song to life?
Thank you, I really appreciate it. The creative process is really simple, to be honest, for the most part, I make a lot of my songs at my house (in my room). I find a beat via my email, YouTube, or I might make one. Then I load up my recording software, Pro Tools, then I just get in the zone and start creating. I dont really write as much as I used to when I first started. I just punch in, it's kinda like freestyle recording. Just catching a vibe in the moment. The thing is that over the years I have deeply invested in a home studio to always be able to make hit records from my crib. Then it's very easy. I use a distribution service called TuneCore to release the records to Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, etc. Then boom the fans get to hear it.
How important is it for you to speak about real-life experiences when songwriting?
Speaking about real-life experiences has to be one of the most important things to me as an artist. Living my truth. Living my raps. When I said:
“Imma bring you round
Baby imma change your life
Appreciate all them nights
You done stayed by your lonesome
Member nights we didn’t know none“
I'm really talking to my girl, telling her like Im gonna change your life, I appreciate all those nights you stayed at the crib with our son by yourselves when I’m out at the studio or an event, telling her I remember nights we didn't know anybody; we didn't know anyone. These are real-life situations. Really living my raps.
Being well-rounded in your craft, do you have a specific talent that you enjoy more than the others?
Given the fact that I’m well rounded, I'm an artist and engineer and I know how to produce. I most definitely favor being an artist. The whole reason I know how to record, mix, and master myself, is because before I was mentored by Teyana Taylor’s Recording and Mixing Engineer Mike Snell (@sn3l), I had no one but myself. I had no connections. I had no choice but to be my own Engineer, so I got super fire at it. Although I much rather be an artist, I still like recording myself. It's kind of weird.
What themes do you send out to your audience to grasp in the content of your music?
Live life BOSSED UP. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Self-belief is key. Stay consistent and love what you do. No matter what do you, just do what you love. Be confident in yourself.
What has been keeping you inspired to create music during one of the most challenging years for the music industry?
Staying healthy and being around the people I love. Although times have been tough for most 2020 was a great year for me. I leveled up and elevated for 2021. We coming CRAZZZY.
