- What is your name and what city do you rep?
Dk James and I'm representing Norfolk, Va 757
- What is unique about you and your music?
I take my time and put thought into my concepts and rhymes schemes, also influences from all around hip hop fused into my own sound.
Just growing up in the city being exposed to different types of situations at an early age, and not having a way to express myself besides writing.
- When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
Back in 2012 when i realized that i could write music, really it started out as just for fun but I've always had love for music so i decided to start creating my own.
- What type of music do you listen to?
It depends what mood im in but mostly hip hop and r&b, my own, and peers.
- Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?
Uzi Spitz, Jimmy L. SleepyEyez and a bunch of artist from Norfolk like GwallaGang, Oh$oRich and HulleganRec and more, i know a few in Atlanta as well...as for industry i would say Pusha T and Kevin gates
- How do you prepare for your performances?
I haven't performed much just yet but I'll say just listening to music over and over and staying relaxed.
- What ignites your (song) writing flow?
Certain melodies i come up with while thinking or when im listening to my favorite songs.
- What do you do when you don't do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
If im not around my family/somebody im close to im at work, or im home in my own zone i dont really be around too many people but that is where most of my writing comes from.
Being comfortable, doing what you love to do, showing love and getting love back.
- What do you wish you were told when you first started rapping that you think would help anyone recently starting artists out?
Get the paperwork and copyrights established before putting out music, buying beats, etc...i wasnt aware of how the music business worked until a couple years after i started really getting into it.
Coming soon..I have no major projects in the works as of now but stay tuned for 2GS and KruiseMuzik. I will have features with Uzi Spitz, SleepyEyez, JimmyL. and more, and songs on music sites like Audiomack, SoundCloud, Reverb Nation, and Youtube.
