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

Dwight Wayne Rhodes, I was born in the U.S Oklahoma City,Oklahoma on March 18, 1988. I was raised with my 3 brothers, 1 older 2 younger, by my mother. Growing up I was a loner a bit shy I stayed to myself a lot, um had a lot of experiences early on, good and bad, and made me understand the world around me very early. Gave me perspective on things as a kid I wasn’t naive and I questioned everything.

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

I’ve always had an ear for music across all genres, till this day I don’t have a preference on what I listen to it’s all about the feel for me, if it’s good it’s good. I was more into production and the behind the scenes work then I was rapping so I got into beat making before anything. I think it’s the most important part of your song, the music, if that’s not on point, everything else kind of falls apart or gets lost. Growing up in Oklahoma the music isn’t necessarily diverse so I was always flipping through the radio stations looking for new things to listen to. I don’t consider myself a rapper, I just happen to rap, it wasn’t something I talked about growing up, I wrote my first verse at 19, after my best friend asked me to…I was reluctant but I gave it try, I wasn’t feeling it at all, haha, low key trash, but I wanted to keep going to see if it could be anything.

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

The song came about just me freestyling at work one day I remembered the first few bars and wrote them down, I came across the beat not too long after, just kind of added a bar here and there but wasn’t really sure where it was going…if you listen to it has flow but it has a level of random thoughts that come together, which is pretty much how my mind works so I ran with it. I got an idea for a video which I’ll be doing soon.

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. 

Um this music has taught me a few things most importantly is doing what you say you are going to do…sticking to your word, not just living the “ fake it till you make it” life, I’ve put myself out there trying to play a part and it always turned on me. I’m not the most self-motivated I’m laid back non-chalant about things and it hasn’t really benefited me on any level. So having to do everything on my own has gave me its problems but I don’t trip I know how to readjust so now things are moving how I want them to.

.

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. 

I recorded the song in my studio which I put together in my apartment, took a few takes and honestly the take that was sent ended up being the wrong one but I didn’t realize until it was mixed and sent back but I just ran with it…The person who is going to do my video is actually my cousin he is pretty good he has done a few other artist videos so when we get it all together look out for that.

.

.

.

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

I’ve been doing music, since I was 16 but I started rapping at 19, I’ve put out various songs here and there nothing major, I’m actually in a group, we go by Keys To The View, we have known each other since we were in high school, so I have a group project on the way along with my solo project. Future goals I’m not sure to be honest I’m just trying to get established and then see how far I can take it.

.

.

.

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

I get inspired by anything, a lot of times my best ideas come when I’m doing something not related to music. I’m not much of a talker but I’m very outspoken, I always have felt like people never really hear me though, this rap is my way of getting the thoughts that I would normally keep to myself out.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song. 

What I think makes a hit song is the “feel” and when I say hit I don’t mean the catchy tune, I mean the songs that span across genres and are continually brought up no matter the era, that’s a true hit in my mind the music that won’t die. Whoever is involved in the songs process has to be in it like fully lost in the sound for it to be something real…I think the word gets tossed around too much nowadays though a lot of music is just for the moment but won’t be spoken of next year, let alone 10 years from now.

.

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

I guess stay with me, don’t be afraid to have an opinion about me good or bad, I’m going to talk my shit and go where I want to go, I hope you’ll do the same.

.

.

.

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

I would say keep recording, don’t stop doing you, don’t look at the numbers, take everything people say good or bad and throw it away. There is no such thing as a bad idea, either it works or it doesn’t don’t get caught anywhere in between that logic.

.

.

.

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform. 

You guys are the first blog actually to show me some light some you get all the praise from the most high.

.

.

.

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

It’s always different sometimes I have to be in the car just riding to the beat, other days I can sit with pen and paper and write, sometimes I just push record and let whatever comes out be my starting point. Just depends on the day and mood I’m in.

.

.

.

Name five biggest artists that you like.

It’s hard to say, but off the top of my head, Kendrick Lamar, Moneybagg Yo, Nipsey Hustle, Drake, and J.Cole.

.

.

.

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so. 

I haven’t been collaborating with anyone but my partner who goes by Tune View, I can’t say I have anyone in particular I’d like to work with as of now just looking to establish my sound then see who fits when the time comes.
