All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.
But when you get music and words together, that can be a very powerful thing.I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.
I would love to introduce to you this week’s new and next artist, he goes by the name “Blo Smallz” who I’ve been secretly admiring.
He recently brought out a mixtape entitled ” N A P O L E O N ” and I had the opportunity to take a look into his life to discover the man behind the music.
Take a read below to see what he reveals and check out his video at the end and let us know what you think.
1.Give the readers a quick idea of who you are and what you do?
2. When and why did you start rapping?
3.Which genre did you start with?
4.What’s your motto or the advice you live by?
5. Tell us something that was really successful or a high point in your career
6.Does your family encourage you and who else in your family sings?
No one else in my family sings, I started rapping because my older brother was an Eminem fanatic and he use to write music too, so I kinda followed in his footsteps but I went a bit further in actually recording my music and putting it out. His raps never left the page. I don’t let my family hear much of my music, cause hip-hop isn’t there genre but they know I rap and I ‘d guess naturally they would wanna see me do well. My real supporting family is Slyfox Movement though!
7.Which famous musicians do you admire? Why?
Tupac Shakur, Nas, Bob & Damian Marley because they all have messages in their music and they all inspired me as a kid. They’re the reason my raps are more conscious rather than flashy. They made me feel comfortable writing and rapping about my actual life and not some fairytale or the life we may wish to have.
8.What kind of music do you listen to today?
I listen to everything from Adele to Mavado. Alot of old stuff though from 2000 back to the 80’s, I have my favorites in every genre. I don’t listen to death metal though, that’s a bit too wild!
9.What embarrassing songs might I find on your Ipod/MP3 player?
The entire soundtrack from the comedy movie “Get Him To The Greek” and a song called “Scotty Doesn’t Know” from the comedy movie “Eurotrip”
10.Where would you most like to perform?
Probably a cliche answer, but I’d have to say a sold out Madison Square Garden
11.Describe your vision for your music.
12.If you could dabble in another genre of music, what would it be?
Reggae, similar to Damian Marley
13.What inspired your first song
14.What can we expect from you in the upcoming year?
16.Any advice for aspiring artist?
Give a shout out…
A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.
