Welcome, Profound Artist! Thanks for chatting about your latest single, "Spiritual Warfare". What kind of energy were you hoping listeners would primarily extract from listening to this particular single of yours?
Honestly, I want them to get the energy to stand up for what is right and I don't necessarily mean it in a violent way. Just stand up to the injustices of the world or else they'll never stop. We never stopped the people in power when we had the chance so we gotta stand up for what's right and keep fighting the good fight.
Was there anything specific you were hoping "Spiritual Warfare" listeners would understand differently after listening to your track? Do you feel that the message of your tracks is generally understood by your listening base?
Not necessarily, I just want to peak their curiosity. I wanted it to be like a starting point into questioning things and not taking things at face value anymore.
I do believe so. I often get feedback from the people who listen to my music and they always tell me how they love what I say and to me that means the world.
As an artist who has a unique style of vocal delivery, do you ever find yourself encountering challenges when attempting to record?
Yeah definitely. My breath is not what it used to be. Sometimes it's hard to record some songs like spiritual warfare but I don't stop until it sounds perfect in my ears. A little fun fact about Spiritual Warfare, I almost lost my voice recording the song.
How would you say that the current music scene in Montreal, Canada is propelling the current way your music comes about?
Honestly, and I do not mean it with any form of disrespect, but the Montreal hip hop scene does not influence. Let me elaborate. In Montreal, most of the hip hop artists all make music in french so already there it makes it different. There are anglophone rappers don't get me wrong but we don't get the same exposure as the french ones do. But I do have to say, the anglophone rappers are dope and if I say so myself, the other rappers in my crew who are anglophone are really extremely dope.
What's next for you? Next song is gonna come out by the end of July about. Its gonna be called Temporary. And I'm about 90% done with the recording stage of my album so be on the look out for that.
