OUR INTERVIEW OF THE MONTH WITH IT’S MIDNIGHT
1.Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?
This song is a melodic emotional song that goes through the rollercoaster of emotions that comes along with a relationship. The lyrics portray the highs and lows of a relationship as well as for deciding what’s best for me. The song also has some undertones of loving materialistic things, such as Cartier. Women may come and go but money will never switch up.
2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?
My music is unique because it will always give you a feeling. When listening to my music you feel as if your one with the music rather than just a listener. The words can be related to anyone and the beat and lyrics coexist perfectly. To me, music is much more about creating a type of energy or vibe than it is just the lyrics or the beat. You should be able to relate to music, to feel the emotion and energy in the song, to be so entranced by the sound that you understand it. That’s what my music can bring to you. It can make you feel emotional, hyped up, happy or sad.
3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?
Well, I am always proud to be making music. The only thing that truly matters to me when making music is that it makes me happy. Everything else that comes with it, money, fame, attention, etc, none of that truly matters unless your happy. I’m most proud that for the 4 years I have been making music, it continues to make me happy every day. Another thing I am happy about is that during COVID, I lost all creative inspiration and got really down on myself for not being motivated at all towards my Music career. Before COVID I used to be super motivated, working every day towards my goals, making a song or two every week. However, during COVID I maybe made 2-3 songs total. So you can see how hard and discouraging that must have been for me. However, I am happy to say I didn’t give up on music and am back to being fully motivated and working hard.
4.How do you balance your music with other obligations — family, friends or work?
Right now I’m a student at the University of Colorado Boulder, as well as working a full-time job. Because of this, I am always busy doing something, but every second of free time I get, I am putting it towards music. Music really is my true goal and I have had to sacrifice a lot to pursue this career. I have had to miss out on a lot of events with my friends because I have either been working or making music. I don’t want to work a full-time job while in college, however, I need money to fund my music career and I understand it will all be worth it someday.
5.What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?
Never give up. Work on your craft constantly and try to work and hang out with as many other artists as possible. Only surround yourself with motivated and talented people. If you see someone making moves and you really want to work with them, do whatever you can to get in their circle and meet them. You are the only one who can create your path, so it is up to you to do everything you can to make your dreams a reality. On the flip side, make sure you remain happy doing all of this. You never want to force yourself to work, because then the work won’t be genuine and won’t come from the heart. If you need a break, take a break. While you may want to succeed super bad in the music industry, you must remember that your own personal health comes first. Take care of yourself.
6.If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?
Expect big things from me.
7.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?
Constantly dropping singles as well as getting features from Joey Melrose and Jaxx. Might drop a small EP that shows my versatility outside of rap/ hip-hop. Networking with and learning from people that are making moves right now. Just trying to level up my game. Gotta work smarter not harder.
