Hello, Big Dante, thank you for being with us at BuzzMusic, and congratulations on the release of your latest single “No Hook.” What inspired you to take this approach of not putting a hook in your song when creating it?
I truly appreciate BuzzMusic for this opportunity to express my song “No Hook.” What inspired me to write “No Hook”, I would have to say all that happened previously in 2020. From February to May, I would say was some hard times, I had to overcome a lot. I just got a release from jail over an ole friend of mines and was going through some dark times in that frame. I wanted money, hint the money counter. I wanted more for myself and wanted to brag about that honestly.
Could you please tell us a bit about yourself as an artist and creative in the music industry?
So, as an artist, I would have to say I am very open-minded when it comes to me wiring my music. I don’t let anyone Influence my style, I love to be me and original and not cap about anything I have never done. Also, my creativity is limitless.
How was the creative process for “No Hook,” different for you versus other songs that you have created?
“No Hook” was different because it took like a year and some change off the music. I started my music career in late 2018, but I let everyone get to me back then. Now I am stronger and wiser, so “No Hook” was the first song I wrote after taking a long break from writing. Also came with a different style and everything.
With music varying from genre to genre, who are the musical inspirations that you look up to?
I have so many people I listen to daily. As I am always searching for new music, I am going to go off my Apple Music 2020. I listen to Big Sean, Lil Uzi Vert, Nav, Myself of course. Honest truth if It sounds good I promise I listen to it regardless of who you are.
With the numerous projects that you have released this year, do you have one that resonates with you more than others?
All of em resonates with me. All the music I made, I made different emotions. I wrote each song in a different thinking process. So they will all get the job done for me no matter what. Hopefully, it’s the same for anyone that listens to my music. I truly appreciate it.
What would you like your listeners to take away from the hits that you create?
Honestly, that’s up to them. I hate telling people how they should feel or what they should take away from something, everybody has different thinking levels and process stuff different. Long whatever you take from my music is positive and can help you out through whatever in life I would be totally satisfied.
What has been the biggest lesson that 2020 has taught you so far?
Oh man, 2020 had taught me to always stay hungry, stay motivated. And most importantly make sure my mental and health are good. I can’t make sure anyone else is good if I’m not.
