Discuss your personality.
My personality is chill. Anyone who knows me knows I’m cool to be around. I show love to everybody
Brief us about you as a musician.
I’m the type of musician that takes pride in being original. I make my own beats and write my own rhymes of course. It means a lot to me that people gravitate towards my truth. I’m into pushing the culture forward.
Go into details on what has changed in your life for choosing music as a career.
I definitely became more confident. I’ve learned how to talk to people more and market myself as a brand. A lot of the business I had to learn on my own like how to book shows and sell merch.
Tell us the benefits and drawbacks of choosing music as a career.
Well the benefits to me are way better than the drawbacks though both exist. The benefit is that I can actually make a living by expressing myself and being a voice for my people. One drawback would be overcoming the stereotype of what some people feel like a rapper should be or look. I get assumptions a lot.
Tell us how you will manage fame as an established artist.
I won’t let fame change me for the worse. I’m ready for it and I’ve accepted that it will come with my success. There is no excellence without some sort of fame attached. I think fame will be interesting to me because I was never popular in grade school.
Elaborate on the storyline of this song.
The storyline is straight to the point. I being confident in my rhymes and my innovation thus creating a record called “Copy My Moves”. The theme came from a feeling like all my records do. I felt compelled to prove myself lyrically and style-wise.
Tell us the means of connecting you and purchasing your music online.
You can find me anywhere at BEEISTHEFUTURE. That goes for Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Twitter, whatever you use I’m on there.
Let us know the greatest moment of your music career.
Hmm, one of the greatest moments I had so far was performing at House of Blue in front of a sold-out audience having everybody hands in the air vining with me. That boosted my confidence for sure. I literally visualized myself killing the show and then it happened. Manifestation!!!
Tell us the highest amount of money you have ever received from your music career and how it happened.
So far I haven’t racked in any big checks (yet). I think the highest was $100 and it was for a show in New Orleans.
Discuss your experience pertaining to live performances, gigs, shows, and tours.
I love performing. I’ve done almost every indie venue in New Orleans. I’ve also performed in Houston, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. LA was my most memorable performance for sure. The energy was surreal.
Tell us how you interact with your fans.
My fans love me because I’m myself. I’m super vulnerable in my music. I’m not afraid to talk about my fears and insecurities and I think that’s where the connection is. I talk about real-life instead of what I think will sell. Fans appreciate honesty not club records all the time.
Tell us what you will like to change if you have the chance to turn back the hands of time.
I would have definitely started performing sooner. Particularly in high school.
Tell us the most important people that have boosted your music career and how you met them.
My girlfriend is top on that list for sure. She gives me so much confidence and inspiration. I do this not for myself mainly but for her and our future family to be straight. My best friend Rummie Abiff who is always an artist, he has always supported me and never allowed my success to alter our friendship. I remember the time I almost quit making beats and he told me to keep going. Without him encouraging me at that moment I would’ve given up on myself.
Brief us on what you have in mind before considering music as a career.
I wanted to play basketball lol quickly realized that wasn’t my passion.
Discuss your good and bad experience in life.
I’ve had my fair share of each. One of my worse experiences was thinking I had a record deal on the table only to find out it was a fraud situation. I wasted 3 months of my time waiting on a tour bus to come to get me. But the good side of it all I never let it make me give up.
Name the artists that have influenced the world.
KANYE WEST and KID CUDI.
Tell us about your moment of rejection as a musician and how you are able to cope and move on.
I’ve had people tell me I can’t rap. My music is trash. All kinds of hurtful comments but I know in this industry; one got to have thick skin. I let it go because everyone is entitled to an opinion. Just because one person doesn’t like me doesn’t mean I’m not dope.
Tell us the most negative comment you have ever received about your music.
“Straight trash just got fill out an app for the mall” exact quote.
Tell us how to become a famous artist.
Tell us how you plan to make an impact on society.
By being myself and encouraging my fans to do the same. And always think positively.
Elaborate on the recording process of this song.
When I heard the beat I knew I had to have it. The producer of the record is a talented artist from Donaldsonville, La. We worked together at a marketing firm last year and always kept in contact. I hit him up for the beat and wrote the whole song in 10 minutes once I heard it. It was such a vibe I immediately got super inspired. I love when beats lit that flame up in my creativity. It’s a powerful feeling!
