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

My real name is Darryl Tucker, I was born In Chicago but grew up in Las Vegas, USA. A cherished childhood experience was when my father introduced me to music and all the diverse artists that I’ve grown to love to this day including Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Tupac and many more!

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

My stage name is “Sencere The Jedi” and I’ve been writing music since I was 14, but I only started taking it seriously around the age of 21. My Hip-Hop influences are Eminem, Nas, Tupac, Dr. Dre and DMX. I like to refer to my style as being very self-aware. I tell my inner most sincerest feelings, and I’m not afraid to hold the man in the mirror accountable and be my own worst critic.

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

My genre leans more on the side of Jazz rap, and the idea of the song came about after a very bad day in which I seemed to be the butt of everyone’s jokes; so I wrote this song in one day taking a “tongue-in-cheek” approach of “accepting” being the butt of the jokes. I wanted the feel of the video to be very colorful and full of art to accompany the subject matter of the song.

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.

When it comes to me as a musician the only word that sums up everything you need to know about me is “passion”. I have a passion for the craft in the written form like no other, and ideas are constantly sparking and I sometimes find myself up at 3am writing down lyrics to a beat in my head. Passion is the steam that powers my dream. At this point in my career the biggest challenge for me has been trying to get a large number of people to listen to someone they never heard of. But It’s a process and patience has to go hand in hand with passion.

.

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.

“Jokes” was produced by Blu Majic Beat Co. and the video was shot, edited and directed by CMDelux. It was shot in Las Vegas, USA.

.

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

I’ve been doing music seriously for about five years, and my ultimate goal is to build a cult like following of great fans, travel the world spreading creativity, and use my platform to give back to the community in whatever I can.

.

.

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

The thing that inspires me the most to write is just how BIG the art can be. You can literally create an entire world with the pen and pad, filled with whatever you want! When you write YOU have the power, and unlike everyday life which can be filled with unfortunate events, when you create art, YOU get to dictate how that story begins and ends. It’s a lot of power.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

I don’t think there’s a specific “secret” or “magic formula” to making a hit record. I believe the creative process has to be smooth and organic. You have to follow your heart and be as creative as you can. A lot of the most timeless classic songs have come from artists who spoke their minds and were genuine.

.

.

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

To my fans out there this is only the beginning! I have a LOT more planned for 2018 so please stay tuned.

.

.

.

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

Just don’t give up! It’s always difficult to break into a super competitive market, but if you’re passionate and put in the work you’ll get exactly where you want to be. And also, don’t be afraid of rejection. You’ll get a lot of that in the beginning.

.

.

.

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

To date I’ve recorded a good number of songs, and I’ve released a mixtape a year or so ago entitled “Finally Free” for free online. I have a new project that I’m working on that will debut in early 2018 so be on the lookout for that. I’ve been featured in various blogs and publications in the past year and I’m looking to tour beginning in 2018.

.

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.

Unsigned Artists Radio 1, Dope because we said, Insomniac Magazine, and others have featured me on their platforms in the recent months.

.

.

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

My creative process actually works relatively quickly. I search online for instrumentals all day every day, and when I find the one out of thousands that I actually like, I put it on repeat and begin formulating ideas. Once I have the song written which usually doesn’t take me more than a day or so I’ll book a session. In the studio, I like to come SUPER prepared so about 90% of the songs I do are done in two takes or less.

.

Name five biggest artists that you like.

Eminem, Sam Cooke, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder and Tupac.

.

.

.

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 done many collaborations, but I have collaborated with one of my Las Vegas Hip-Hop colleagues Taylor Weeze, and I’d love to collaborate with Anderson .Paak, Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Chance The Rapper and it’s way too many to name lol.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

The happiest day of my life was when I recorded a song that my mom actually loved! The saddest day was when my parents split up.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

I’m really big on family even though I have a small one, and we’ve been homeless too many times to count, so I think I would spend a million dollars on a big house where me and my family can ALWAYS have a place to rest our heads.
