Un’tld! Congratulations on the release of your latest single “No Way.” The energy that you put into this record has it honing in on all trademarks of a hit song! When creating the lyrics, what was the inspiration behind your cadences and rhyme schemes?
When I was writing the lyrics, I didn’t take much inspiration from anything because I wanted It to be as original as possible. Once I heard the beat, I knew I wanted the song to slap! So I focused on keeping the rhyme schemes interesting and switching them up to keep people engaged, after I figured that out I just had to match that energy in the booth.
In your own words, what does “No Way,” mean to you? What are you hoping that your audience will take away from it?
To me “No Way” means I’m getting more serious, music has always been a passion of mine and I’ve always taken it seriously but I felt like the people around me weren’t taking me as seriously so I wrote about it. The message I want people to take away from it is “stay confident and keep working”. Nothing is impossible when you put the time and effort into your goals, and when people tell you otherwise you just tell them No way!
Let’s get into the music video! We absolutely loved taking it in. There was also something different grabbing our attention. What was it like filming the visuals? Are there any scenes that stand out as your favorite?
Filming the video was a lot of fun working with Cristian and Dolly Dummies was a great experience. We came into the shoot with treatment for the video but we still ended up coming up with some of the shots on the day of, I feel like that helped to keep the video fun and creative. I would say my favorite scenes are the newspaper scene, because of how long it took us to get it right but every moment was hilarious. And definitely, the scene of me hanging out the car rapping, it was cool driving up and down the street blasting my song and getting those shots, while other cars and people watching were reacting to it so it was just a crazy vibe overall.
With each artist being different from one another, what is the main goal you have in place with the messaging and emotion in your music?
My main goal is to make music that people can relate to. I want to be able to speak for people who go through the same things that I do but aren’t able to express it for themselves
What's next for you?
Next for me is more music, more videos, more shows, and just more content overall. I plan on releasing a project soon but until then I want people to know that pressure is being applied and they should be expecting more from me in the future.
