Q: So…the new mixtape “This Is Not A Drill” is out.. & it’s dope! You got some serious joints on there. This mixtape was a 2 year process, correct? why so long?
A: Thanks alot. The mixtape took was a year long project that took form on its own. After dropping the first song and video “Boy Bye” other artists, producers, and videographers began to reach out and wanted to work together. From that point, the streets and the Internet wanted more. That’s when “This Is Not A Drill” began to take shape and now it’s a great project that I’m very proud of.
Q: You gonna be doing any tours, shows to promote the project?
A: That’s for sure. I will be popping up on many upcoming tours with different artist yet to be announced. In the meantime, I will continue to promoting on various FM and Internet radio platforms.
Q: Collabin’ with Chicago artists like Katie Got Bandz, Billionaire Black & Top Shotta to name a few is a good unified look, how did that go down? Any funny stories that stick out working with either of them (studio time, etc..)?
A: I don’t allow myself as a person or artist to be labeled or confined to any one particular group or crew. I’m my own movement, so that gives me more free range than others to work with different artist and groups of people that may not normally be associated on the same songs or projects. It’s all kind of a funny story because I never really started out with the intent to release a project but as I released songs and videos with a different vibe than the current drill music scene in Chicago , the “This Is Not A Drill” movement began to take on a life of its own. It’s more amazing than funny to watch a thought turn into reality, I guess.
Q: You’ve been building your buzz for a few years now out in the chi.. How has the process been so far developing and building outside of the Chi?
A: I can honestly say, I feel I’ve reached a point where I received notable recognition in Chicago and it’s been a humbling yet rewarding experience. As far as outside of the Chi, the process has been exciting and quite interesting at the same time. People from other cities and other countries have been very receptive of my music. I often get invites to visit or call into radio stations locally and nationally. There is even a collaboration with an artist from the United Kingdom named Jasmine Knight “WHY (remix)” that has been well received by London radio and and European music sites. It’s all a work in process and I look forward to everything that’s to come in the future. IT’S PLUS!
