A warm welcome to BuzzMusic FKD ZA. What a powerful listening experience you've created with your latest single, "Believe Me." What inspired your bars and lyrics within this track?
What inspired me to write believe me was to motivate the ones around me to notice my talent. Where I come from, the desire to be better is very low. So if someone can’t see anything in themselves it’s hard for them to believe anyone else dreams. I’ve been to hell and back living in Philadelphia, it’s not for the weak-minded and I feel like I have a priceless story to tell.
Did you create the production yourself for "Believe Me?" Or did you have any help when navigating the song's sonic feel and atmosphere?
I created Believe me by myself, sitting in my room just vibing to beats. I don’t believe in using writers to help you, it’s either you got it or you don’t and I feel like I have both. I was always a creative writer and loved writing starting back in elementary school so making good music came naturally.
What was your songwriting process like for "Believe Me?" Was it challenging to write such informative, personal, and honest bars? Or was it easy to let your thoughts flow onto paper?
When you tell the truth in your music it’s never hard to get it out, this is a way to vent and let everything I’ve been going through. I don’t care about what people think of me or how people see me if they don’t know me and that helps a lot.
We were honestly taken aback when hitting play on your single, "Believe Me," as you clearly embody the talent and drive of many successful contemporary hip-hop artists. Why do you think your music has been so successful thus far?
My music hasn’t been successful yet but, I feel like the time and effort I put into my work deserves more credit. The only thing I can do is keep working until the right person hears it. I have 7.9k views on Believe Me on YouTube as of right now, but I can’t get comfortable, I can’t get caught up in how good believe me is because I can do better and as long as I move with that mindset, I will be ok.
