Tell us about yourself.

I am a West Point Graduate turned hip-hop artist.

.

Tell us about yourself as an artist.

I tend to imbue meaning into my songs. I tend to fit the label of “conscious hip-hop” better than traditional rap.

.

.

.

Tell us about the genre of your music.

Hip-hop/rap.

.

.

.

Tell us about the story behind your song.

This track means a lot to me personally. I am a graduate of West Point and I made this song for the Corps of Cadets. I played football for the Army for a bit and I have multiple friends on the team. I wrote this track for them. I want them to be bumping it in the locker room before they run out. It’s 100% to get them hyped.

.

Tell us the challenges you are facing as a musician.

People just don’t want to put in the work. It’s ok, but no one keeps up with me and my manager. We’re just on another level and he constantly reminds me that we’re doing something that’s never been done before and we should not expect people to understand it yet.

.

.

Tell us about the recording and production of the song.

This song was extremely easy to put together. The video was another story. We brought in the crew from LA, Tampa, Minneapolis, and West Point and all got together in New York to shoot the vid. It was an amazing weekend and we did our first legit live show two days before shooting the video. The witch scenes were shot in LA and that is me in the costume and with full face prosthetics.

Tell us more about your music career, experience and future goal.

My music career is just starting. I’ve only been pursuing music with my full attention for 10 months and I’ve already made incredible progress. My goal is to be the greatest rapper in the world. I won’t stop until I achieve all-time legacy.

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

Communicating whatever emotions are flowing out of me at that particular moment in time.

My biggest accomplishment thus far has been surrounding myself with a team that truly believes Tosa Brooks is a brand that will change the world.

.

.

.

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

I put on the instrumental and let the first line just come to me. Then I try to ride that stream of consciousness to write the rest of the song. Then when I record, I try to get into character and feel those same emotions as when I wrote it (almost like method acting).

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

My happiest day was actually a weekend. It was when I flew to New York about a month ago and met up with two of my closest artists (Nova and Poetry) and my manager. We spent the whole weekend performing at West Point, filming 2 music videos, and just roaming wild in the city. My saddest day was actually the last 6 months of my Army service, when I was dealing with depression at a clinical level. I felt alone from my friends/family and physically/emotionally unhealthy.
