Interview: C.A. Brown

Your new project “King’s Testimony” is gaining a mean buzz not just based on your historical grind and roll out for this project, but the music in general. How does it feel and what’s the overall reaction?

The feedback that i have been receiving from the project has been dope to say the least! The album is being regarded as a classic and i have been compared to the greats which is surreal to me im still taking it all in!

Tell us about the name change from “Trigga Trend” and the growth into who “C.A. Brown” is becoming?

Trigga Trend is a former version of myself where my content was focused on the streets. C.A Brown is who i am today! I chose to go with C.A. Brown because my content is more personal now as it show all aspects of my life so i chose to go with my real name instead of hiding behind a character!

The music videos have also stepped up, tell us about your process with creating your visuals and how precise you are about quality control etc.

 I am very particular about my visuals these days. I try to make sure the treatment matches the energy of the song. It is important to me for the visual to bring the song to life!

What would you say the music game is lacking?

Right now the music game lacks substance and emotion. This is the void i plan to fill.

Tell us who you worked with on your latest project producer and feature wise and what were your own favorites?

I worked with 2 producers on this project, DJ pain 1 and ILL Brown. As far as features i worked with Beadz, K love the poet, Ike the writa, Tony Rush, Alonda Rich, Tina G, and Brian Hill. My personal favorite collaboration was probably Colorful Vibrations prod by ILL Brown feat K love the poet and Brian Hill.


How do you feel social media has impacted the business?

As an independent artist i feel like social media is a great thing. When used properly we have the ability to connect with our audience and monetize our brands without needing a major label.

Thusfar, what has been the best advice you’ve been given?

The best advice i have been given is to remain consistent with content. As an independent artist it is important to keep the attention of your audience!

What is one message you would give to your supporters?

To my supporters i want you to know that this is only the beginning for me. I plan to bring quality content and meaningful music every time i release.

What’s next for C.A. Brown in 2021?

Be on the lookout for more visuals as i plan to release one for every song on the project. Also you can look forward to the deluxe album sometime in the near future!

Stack Or Starve Exclusive: Interview w/ Jui$e Leroy

When and how did you start doing this rap thing? Who introduced you to the game?

I started rapping at the age of 5 years old on random day in the summer out of nowhere. But I didn’t start writing lyrics until I was 12 or 13 due to my parents splitting up. Around 16 I started recording in a real studio because I had been recording on cassette tapes and word got around town to this dude that was brothers with a rapper/producer out of Ennis, TX that liked my potential. His name was Big Mac and he’s the first one to get behind me and helped me establish some clout around Dallas with my music.

What’s the story behind your name? obviously you’re a fan of the movie “Last Dragon” lol

Lol man I was in the studio recording my Lords project under my former moniker Tony Staxx with a producer named 3Fifty7. He had the Last Dragon playing in the studio at the time and on the cool it was my first time seeing the movie. I heard the main character’s name and that shit just captivated me. So as I’m riding home listening to the rough draft of my tape I kept saying that was a dope name and I just put the Jui$e on it and told my close patna Cousin Pete and that nigga turnt up like hell yea nigga that’s it right there. So I just ran with it and built an image around the name.

How would you describe your music style?

In a nutshell my music style is Conscious Trap. I came from the streets, gang banging, dope selling, pimpin and all in real life but I elevated my consciousness and became aware of what is and what isn’t so I implement that in my music.

Tell us where are you from and where do you live now?

I’m from Fort Worth, TX a lil town on the outskirts called Everman and also Ennis, TX which is 30 minutes South of Dallas. I reside in Dallas for now but looking forward to switching locations when the time is right.

 

What’s the music scene like in Dallas? We see Yella Beezy is the new face or is that false?

To be honest the music is and always has been poppin out here in the “DFW” area. The street niggas making noise out here, we also have Leon Bridges from Ft. Worth doing his thing, the underground Hip Hop scene is so fucking talented fam it’s only a matter of time for everything get the notoriety that we deserve. And naw that’s very true about Yella Beezy, Cuz is a standup dude along with Trapboy Freddy they doing their best shit and speaking for the streets of the “D”, I commend those men.

What’s the status of your new project & it’s release?

My new project been complete I’m working on the advertising and marketing plan in order to get better results than the last project and even better results with the one that drops after this one. I’m trying to get as much publicity as possible to gain that attraction and anticipation before and after it releases.

Is there anything else you’d like to say?

Interview w/ Rapcrush (Brattnae)

Tell us about the new singles Cheat On Me, & “Pussy”…lol, how would you describe them? Cheat on me is amazing because it’s so relatable . It’s like the first thing a woman will say. I heard it before from friends movies everything I just put my thoughts into a song honestly. Pu$$y is a song out the norm the song is basically saying what a woman will do when she get somebody real nothing more nothing less I mean I just say what females talk about on the regular but in my music .
What inspires you to write music like you do?
Regular everyday activities like I love to sing and rap so if I’m cleaning up listening to r&b especially 90s music I get inspired or things I do everyday and I just start singing something I bout start writing.
Describe your show, what’s it like to be at a RapCrush show performance?
It’s very different like I am a crazy person you never know what I got up my sleeve I have so much different music I can perform so many genres in one night . Every time I do a show I amaze the audience because it’s like wow I never seen a woman perform like that people a say . It’s always been fun performing for me I love to keep the crowd involved.
How did you meet Dj k Storm, and what is his role?
I met him thru social media honestly he saw me working and we clicked. He’s currently my Dj.
With so many Chicago female artists making way, how does Rapcrush stand out and plan to attack the game? Being different ,myself  and  feminism . Most female artist don’t be sexy they be acting like dudes I have soooo much to offer I plan to attack by just being me using my personality my voice my different styles to keep going crazy . Literally I can make anything and that’s what’s gonna separate me from everyone else. 
Do you feel your image is where it should be, or do you feel its room to grow?
No not at all I can’t lie I think it grow with time
though . I’m still growing so from where my image was when I first started recording at like 18 it’s definitely getting a little better but not where I want it yet .
What’s your vision for yourself in 2019?
2019 I want to surround myself with a valid team. I really wanna relocate to Atlanta but I just want more features with talented artist dope producers and a cold ass videographer and keep these hits coming.
How do the people contact you?
People always dm me like no to contact me email is the best way I check my email 25/8 brattnene@gmail.com. But you can follow the social sites @rapcrush also
Any shout outs or last words?
My Dj…Dj k storm my engineer Mixsa, my sisters and brothers! Also my cousin my mom and that’s about it .
