Welcome to BuzzMusic, Aries, we admire the unique flair that you’ve placed into, “Chocolate Factory.” Could you please take us into what the creative process looked like when fashioning this piece of work?
Thank you for the warm welcome. I really appreciate it. To understand what the creative process looked like when fashioning in this piece of work, you have to understand the origins of the song. "Chocolate Factory" is about hopeless romantic finding love. The story behind this song is a representation of my personal experience with finding love. Allow me to paint the perfect picture for you to understand the true source of the creative process. In my past relationships, I found myself looking for the perfect individual, someone who stands out above the rest and has very few flaws or coincidently the same number of flaws. In this search, I realized the perfect individual was just a figment of my imagination. it doesn't exist. Everyone you meet has some type of baggage they carry whether it’s from their last relationship that went south or a situation in life that’s affecting them which ultimately has a domino effect that makes its way into the relationship. At the end of the day, you realize the true goal is to be able to grow and accept a person's flaws and to grow together to help each other overcome those flaws or just live with those flaws. It took a long time for me to realize this, which is why my past relationships did not work out so well. Hence the hopeless romantic searching for love. You wear many hats in the arts and in the business side of the industry. Do you have a talent that you lean more towards, or do they all carry equal weight in your life? I most definitely lean more towards my talent for creating music. I would love to say that they carry equal weight in my life but that wouldn’t be true. In college I had an Asian friend named Luke who told me this, "a man who chases two rabbits catches neither." I understood that proverb on so many levels. Mastering each craft, I knew I’d have to dedicate all my time to do only one at a time to truly master it. I have many gifts, but music is the main highlight. What sets me apart from others is my ability to tap into the skills required to be a Rapper, Singer, Songwriter, Record Producer, Actor, Film Director, DJ, MC, Dancer, Entrepreneur, and Fashion designer. Each one of these titles required time, dedication, and many life lessons that played a huge role in who I am today. I got to where I am today with consistency and determination. What comes easy won't last long, and what lasts long, won't come easy. I knew it was going to take time to get where I am right now, so I put all my trust into consistency and determination in creating music. Do you have a personal favorite lyric? My personal favorite lyrics from the track would be the end of the hook.
"In my mind, I’m doing fine, Living in a world of full imagination, I don’t care bout anything, long as I’m with you."
I like how those lyrics give a sense of the perfect world and in this perfect world the only thing that matters is your other half.
What musical and non-musical influences do you allow to speak into the music that you create? I’ve had the opportunity to witness many amazing artists in my life but there's a handful of artists I can truly call my influencers, Such as Mos Def, Busta Rhymes, Talib Kweli, Common, Jay-Z, and Drake. Each has consistency, longevity, and amazing content in the industry. Each one of these artists has played a part in the way I view music and have inspired me in one way or another.
What are you hoping that your listeners take away from this emotion-filled release? Everyone you meet has some type of baggage they carry whether it’s from their last relationship that went south or a situation in life that’s affecting them which ultimately has a domino effect that makes its way into the relationship.
