Welcome TWENTYFOUR! Houston Texas is a major scene for Hip-Hop and some may say it has its own style. In what ways were you impacted by your environment?
I was impacted by my city’s music , the people I hung around, the fashion etc. all of it influences my style as an artist and shaped who I am as a person. Even tho I’ve been through a lot , the overall impact I would look at it as a positive one.
Let’s discuss your song “Rollin”. What was the main theme behind this single?
The main theme was perseverance. To always keep pushin for what it is you’re after; never stop. It means a lot to me cus of what I was going through at the time in my personal life as well as the fact that it’s just a honest song to me . All my music is true to me but especially this one cus it represents type of person I am . Someone that’s not gonna give up on what they love.
You have a classic delivery. Who would you consider some of your musical influences?
I have a lot of music influences from jay z, Andre 3000 to Scarface, lupe fiasco & mos def.
As a rapper, what’s your take on the current state of hip-hop? In what ways has it changed for you?
Even tho I might not like newer music as much as what I grew up on , now I feel like it’s a lot more fun. You can tell an artist put it out because he just felt good or was having fun at the moment. I wasn’t as understanding of rap 5-10 years ago as I am now, but I feel like back then artists tried to be more precise. It’s a positive & negative to both tho. I think now rap is looked at less like a job , & more only as something fun or cool to do for some if not most artists. And that changes pretty much everything about the music itself. For me I grew more of a love and appreciation for it . I don’t really worry about what the outside world is doing or how they view rap. I recognize their view, then move on & continue to do what I love & I guess the most change is that I really keep getting better.
What’s next for you TWENTYFOUR?
I’m working on music constantly since I started this series called “#24THOFTHEMONTH” where every 24th I drop a single and something special that goes with it . “Rollin” was the first single & came with a video created & directed by @YUNGBABYBOI . I got another single coming out June 24. And I’ll keep coming every month. Hopefully if my fanbase keeps growing I’ll drop a project at end of the year. I’ll definitely try to get at least 2/3 more shows in by end of year as well.
