I’m a programmer turned rapper from San Francisco.

.

.

Tell us about yourself as an artist.

I grew up playing piano, then percussion and singing in choir. I tell stories about my life in the San Francisco tech scene.

.

.

.

Tell us about the genre of your music.

I like all forms of hip hop from trap to more conscious rap.

.

.

.

Tell us about the s.tory behind your song.

The hook says it all: “young rich programmer, lift weights brogrammer”.

.

.

.

Tell us about the challenges you are facing as a musician.

I don’t have any. I’m putting the work in and it’s showing.

.

.

.

Tell us about the recording and production of the song.

I recorded and produced this in my home studio.

.

.

.

Tell us the names of blogs, radio, or TV stations that have supported you so far. 

Still very much underground so haven’t done much of the blogs, radio, or TV promotion yet. Still focusing on local gigs.

.

.

.

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

I picked up a mic a year and a half ago. I’ve always liked rap, but realized I wanted to get involved in the creation of the music I was listening to.

.

.

.

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

I got stories to tell.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song. 

It’s critical to have a solid concept to tie the song together. Also the hook has to be easy to sing and remember after hearing it the first time.

.

.

.

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

I believe you are what you do everyday. One of my mentors always told me to focus on releasing new singles (nothing else mattered). Another rapper also told me to write an hour a day daily. It all comes down to how much time you put towards your music. If you stay patient and put in the work your music will speak for itself.

.

.

.

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

I’m underground now, but I’m coming up fast. Looking forward to a self-produced tour in 2018 with my second album.

.

.

.

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

I have college ruled notebooks I write all my lyrics in. I work on concepts in my home studio until I have everything sounding how I like. Then I bring stuff into a nearby studio in SF.

.

.

.

Name artists you are willing to collaborate with.

If they’re dope I’m down. There’s a lot of great talent out there!

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

I’ve had a lot of great days recently. Releasing my first mixtape is up there. The first time someone got out their phone to snapchat me was also cool. There are a lot of lows in rap too. I just buckle down and focus on the things that have gone right.

.

.

.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

Buy bitcoin 5 years ago.

.

.

.

Tell us about your song.

“Brogrammer” is a programming anthem. I enjoyed rapping about my day to day life as a brogrammer. I work at Microsoft writing front-end applications during the day so the material covers my day to day life. The line, “Flexing on my exes, flexing on the codebase, flexing in the gym, flexing on the gram, flexing on a whim, flexing I’m the man” comes to mind.

.

.

.

Tell us how you manage other activities with your music career.

Honestly it’s hard because I’m so busy. That being said I try to make sure I get to the gym even when I’m focusing on rap. Gotta keep the body strong so the mind stays sharp.

.

.

.

Tell us five artists you can regard as legends.

I’m going to throw out some lesser known rappers that I view as top tier: Belly, Ab-soul, Token, and J-Cole. There are the obvious legends like Jay-Z, Eminem, and 2-Pac, but those go without saying.

.

.

.

Tell us your future plans pertaining music.

I’m focused on releasing singles at the moment. I’m looking forward to doing a tour on the West Coast in the next year.

.

.

.

Tell us what you think about creativity and originality in music.

All music is based off of the same theory and chords. That being said there’s still room for unique sounds and especially lyrical content if you work at it.

.

.

.

Tell us the reason you are into music.

I’m in music to tell stories about my life, and hopefully help people with theirs. A good song can capture a moment, or mood in a way that’s magical.

.

.

.

Tell us your view on old school music and new school music in terms of preference.

I lean more towards new school music in terms of preference. That being said I appreciate all forms of music from jazz to classical to house. My mom used to always say, “Music is good, more music is better”. I believe that.

.

.

.

Tell us your most memorable day as an artist.

Just recently I got my first check from YouTube content ID program. At that moment I realized I could actually make a career out of this.

.

.

.

Tell us what you would do for the people if you found yourself in a position of power.

I always try to make sure everyone is having a good time. So I’d continue doing that I’d just be in a better position to do so.
