Hello SoloT Chase the Bag, welcome to BuzzMusic. The visuals for “Mean Mug,” most definitely made us tap into our inner emotions. Job extremely well done! Do you find it difficult to allow yourself to get vulnerable when you create music?
I don’t get vulnerable when creating music.
In your own words, what does “Mean Mug” mean to you as the creator? What are you hoping that your audience takes away from it?
"Mean Mug" means to me that, I don’t like the old me, so I’m changing to a better person while not letting no one get into my head while trying to make changes to my community. I’m hoping the audience understands that I’ve had difficult situations, like having to spend money when I didn’t even have it or knowing if I would get it back.
What was the experience of filming “Mean Mug” like for you? With an array of scenes throughout the video, how long did it take for you to film?
The experience was just different. I went to the homeless and we asked if we could shoot there and we would pay them to be in there because my pops said if I’m spending money like in my song why not give to the less fortunate people, that was a good idea. It took us about 2hrs to make this film.
If your audience could know anything about you that they may not already, what would you want it to be?
I’m a laid-back guy who wants to learn more about the music industry. I watch a lot of interviews to see what others have done since being in the rap game. Also, I love making music, it wasn’t my passion at first, but 2 years ago it chose me, so I’ve pursued it ever since. I also want to let the audience know if you become a fan of my music, just know, this is only the beginning.
