Hey Dezert Eagle! We gave a listen to "Handling My Business" and immediately appreciated the old-school stylings you were able to integrate and make so prominent throughout the track. Would you say that the old school type feel is a huge characteristic of your artistry?
I would definitely say its a heavy influence.! This particular track is literally pulled from the golden era of hip hop so the feeling is inevitable. However, Although my biggest influences come from the 90s era. I do not fit in a box that is sealed with solely an old school stamp. But this will become more apparent as I release more of the new music that's on the way.
What did you personally want your listeners to receive from listening to "Handling My Business"?
I am a very busy individual who hardly stays in one place for too long. Reason being that if something needs to be done then I'm gonna go do it. Always 'Handling my Business'. I'd say I made it with an expectation to resonate with all the hustlers of the world. But in every aspect of the word, not just the streets. My story is mine to tell, but any go-getter out there, whatever the field knows exactly what it means to be handling their business.
Can you describe the various places you draw your lyrical inspiration from? Especially for the lyrics within "Handling My Business"?
My lyrics are all drawn from a combination of personal experiences, experiences of family and friends and sometimes a combination of experiences and imagination when it comes to writing stories. Handling my Business was definitely drawn from my own experiences.
Your tracks have always had a sense of intimacy, in the way that you connect pretty well with your listeners. Do you find this intimacy to remain with your listeners when you're performing live at shows? What's the experience like when you're playing your music in front of people?
Yes. Most of the shows I do are in an intimate setting anyway. So I'm always able to connect with the audience. Once I get em then I've got em. I always get the crowd participation going and the energy is always of a high vibration. Handling My Business goes down in a live setting because the hook is so easy to relay.!
We've heard that you're planning on releasing more tracks in the near future! What kind of sounding are you hoping to integrate into these tracks that contrast from the elements in "Handling My Business"?
I have quite a broad spectrum of music to release this year. The vibe that you have captured from what you have heard so far will still remain throughout. But you will also hear some interesting but fully hip hop based music.
