Hey Chan Thomas! Welcome to BuzzMusic! What inspired you to first begin making music and releasing it to the public?
I started writing poetry in 2nd grade when I was 7 & my teacher loved reading them & told me I should probably think about writing when I get older I year later I started writing to music but I was always shy and couldn’t speak up so I just wrote for my sister because she rapped but when I was 12 I recorded my 1st song & put it out
You seem to be an artist that puts more thought into his lyrics than most. What can you tell us about the lyrical depth within “Real Hittas”?
Everything I write normally is talking about something I’m feeling & going threw real hittas is and example of that my favorite part in there is
“Someone come & take this pain away /
Cuz I need more than just this Mary Jane /
If she love me imma marry j/
Mama used to push that Mary k /
Trynna “make up” for better days /
Drop some weight to get some better pay /
That just talks about struggling with depression and I can do drugs to try to mask the pain & how I’ll settle for any woman who wants to love me because that’s something I haven’t experienced & how hard my mom worked & even had side hustles selling Mary k which is a “make up” company just to try & make extra money so she wouldn’t have to tell her kids she couldn’t get them what they wanted.
Since you’ve been making music for several years, how would you compare some of the earlier material you’ve written to your newest release “Real Hittas”?
I don’t think my music ever really changed I’ve always used it as therapy I just know that I got better at producing & engineering & honestly I’m still putting out some of the music I wrote when I was 15 because I couldn’t ever make it sound the way I wanted so I waited till I had the engineering skill to pull it off
We’ve also been bumping some of your other singles! Can we expect a longer project or debut album in the near future?
Yes I drop singles every week just to get the awareness up & I got a few projects I’m holding on to but I have a album I’m looking to drop pretty soon that I think might really connect with people on a different lvl.
We really appreciate you chatting with us about your incredible music! What’s next for you artistically? Does your creativity manifest itself in other ways?
Currently I’m looking for a team because I can’t do everything alone & for people to see & value the type of music I bring you have to see the visuals the reason everything is animated why I make some songs sound like I’m not saying anything until u read the lyrics
