Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

My government name is Jacob Veach Taylor I was born 4-14-97 in the sticks of North Carolina (USA). I once spent the night in jail when I was 17 because my friend ran when he got caught with some bud so for some reason I just ran too. I didn’t have anything on me because we dropped our boozes in some bushes before the cops pulled up. But I ran into a neighborhood and there was a fence at the end and the cop was about to tase me.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I’ve been making music seriously for about 3 years and I started producing 1 year ago. Also I started selling my beats a few months ago too, at least the ones I’m not using myself lol. I started writing raps when I was 14 after the first time I heard Earl Sweatshirt. I just never heard rap like that before and it made me want to try it myself. I rap, sing, make beats, plus I mix my beats and most of my songs.

.

.

.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

I make hip-hop, sometimes with hints of trap, and sometimes with hints of soul and r&b. I just like to make music really lol. It’s only the audio.

.

.

.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

I’m still fairly new to the industry but I have worked with a producer that shall go unnamed but he has worked with a lot of major artists like Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Fetty Wap, Kendrick Lamar, etc. And he said he was digging my music and wanted to hook me up on some beat then he’d promote the songs whenever I had them ready and had dropped them. But when I sent them I never heard from him again.

.

.

.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

 It’s only the audio file.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

 I’ve been seriously making hip hop music for about 3 years and my goal really is to be able to make a decent living from my music cause I’m already doing pretty much what I want in life (which is making music lol) so if I don’t have to work a bullshit job that I don’t care about on the side to stay alive then I’m chilling.

.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

I enjoy how there are no boundaries when it comes to writing and you can create your own world through the lyrics by being able to say anything. I’ve always been more of a thinker than a talker so I tend to listen to my surroundings a lot and writing is just a real cathartic way for me to say what I want to say in the proper setting. Plus I just love music, whenever I hear a really dope song it never makes me feel discouraged it always inspires me to progress and evolve my craft.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

You just need to be yourself. Can’t force anything.

.

.

.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

Always do what you love even when times are hard because the universe will have your back in the long run.

.

.

.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Be patient.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

I’ve made 2 mixtapes, 3 EPs and several singles (total of 81 songs that I have released) plus like 15 features or so. I’ve performed a handful of times and my homie has a mini tour on the east coast that I’ll be going on in a few months.

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

When I write lyrics for a track I start by finding a beat then I’ll usually write a hook first or I’ll start the verse or intro. When I’m making a beat I like to start out laying down a melody or some chords or get a sample. Then I’ll lay down the drums and bass then develop the intro, outro and bridges. I record mostly at my house but I also go to the legit studio when I got a SUPER banger lol.

.

.

.

Chance The Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples and Kevin Gates.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

One of the happiest days I’ve ever had was the first time i performed, it was crazy and one of my saddest days was a cop coming to my house and arresting me in front of my mom.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

 I would buy a nice little house in Cali or Chicago maybe and I’d build a dope studio in there and link up with the best engineers and producers then make history. Also invest.
