Welcome to BuzzMusic Reco Bandz! In what ways has your upbringing and background impacted your artistry today?

Growing up in the hough community in Cleveland basically influenced the struggle in my music based on the lifestyle of hough. The motivation behind any community member in the hough area has always been motivated by money and business based on the history of the 1966 Hough Riots and the aftermath of what happened to our community underlined by racism. 

My background behind my music is influenced mostly by my family because my mother and father were DJ’s while I was growing up so I was raised around local artists playing local music in the Cleveland culture. 

Knowing you’re a rapper, what’s your take on the current state of hip-hop? Who are some artists you’re listening too?

Based on the current state of hip hop  I personally feel like no artists are providing organic hip hop right now which is why I only listen to myself in order to focus on my personal growth in music. My musical influences growing up were Lil Wayne and the Hot Boyz after watching the “Block is Hot” music video at 6 or 7 years old I knew I wanted to rap.


Where do you find inspiration for most of your songwriting Reco Bandz?

Most of my inspiration behind my music come from personal experiences in my life that I have been through or are currently going through. 

What’s the major theme that’s behind “Ol Me”?

The major theme behind “Ol Me” is to express the journey of my past through my music growing up in the Hough neighborhood. The Ol Me EP was the beginning of “Reco Bandz” establishing my rebirth and persona as a rapper. 

Any exciting summer plans for you?

This summer I am focused on doing more shows and promoting myself while being a voice for the youth in my city.
