Thank you for being with us at BuzzMusic, Chise Up, and congratulations on the release of, “Segue.” You serve up a lot of truth in this song. What inspires you to delve into a place of personal experience when releasing the music that you do?
Thank you for having us, and rocking with our music, BuzzMusic, truly appreciate the love. The track dictates my words, and when I heard the track for Segue, it just sounded like something that would be played after winning a championship, in a movie, which prompted me to say, "Runner-ups this is 1st place, running up the score", lbs.
What would you like your listeners to take away from “Segue?" The intricacies in our lyricism. We have two very different and distinct voices, and sometimes people get lost in the sound but pay attention to the BARZ... We're saying things people NEED to hear.
Could you please tell us about what the creative process was like when crafting “Segue?"
Classic and I usually write separate from each other, but we're cousins, and very like-minded, so once I heard the track, I knew from the jump I didn't want us to have a hook on it, and he agreed. It was too melodic for us to oversaturate it with more words, lol, so we agreed to just give listeners a light and airy song, to go along with the feel of the track.
Who are the musical inspirations that you have that influence the music you create? Rakim is the reason I started Emceeing in the 1st place, way back in the 80s when I was a kid. Of course, Pac, Biggie, & Jay-Z's "Reasonable Doubt" CD was a MAJOR influence on my flow, but my modern-day influences are Curren$y, Young Roddy, Mos Def, & Griselda.
What goals can we expect next from you in 2021?
A ton of content! Videos, Music, a Movie is in the works as well. Our Clothing line is continuing to flourish, so I see more opportunities to get that at the forefront of a lot of future endeavors as well. More features from artists we love and rock with are on the way too, shoutout to #daCiRCLEcru, and #TruNdeedManagement! Thank you!!!
