- What is your name and what city do you rep?
My name is Skylar Marse aka White Crow and I rep Salt Lake City, UT
- What is unique about you and your music?
I feel like what is unique about me and my music is what I talk about, I try to help better people lives through my music. I try to inspire and help people be aware of the messed up society we live in.
My emotions and life experiences shaped everything about my music. I started writing when I was around age 11 because it was a way for me to cope with my mom going to prison, music really helped with the changes in my life and writing my emotions down quickly became something I did in every situation.
- When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
It wasn't until I was in high school and got the opportunity to help build a professional studio inside for the students to use. Once it was built I was able to record my first mixtape and even though it wasn't the greatest, I had the most fun creating it and the reactions I got from all my classmates and friends were enough to say this is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
- What type of music do you listen to?
I mostly listen to underground hip hop and rap but I'm a lover of all music, I see and appreciate the art and hard work every artist puts into their craft.
- Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?
I think that Grieves from Rhymesayers entertainment is very undervalued, He's been in the game for so long and is a really good lyricist and even though he gets a few hundred thousand plays, his music, in my opinion, should have millions.
- How do you prepare for your performances?
First I make sure my track outs are exactly as I want them, then before the show starts I go over every track in order at least twice, then once the show starts I just go for it. Your energy and confidence is key to good performances.
- What ignites your (song) writing flow?
Well a few different things, sometimes I get inspired off of hearing a really dope song, other times it's when I and my homies are free-styling and I have one of those moments where everything just clicks and I start writing.
What do you do when you don't do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
Strangely enough, I'm really big into politics and I like to keep informed of what's going on in the world, I love learning about the Universe and one day once I've retired from this music thing id love to become a Professor in Astro Physics. In reality, I'm quite the average Joe, I'm a person like each and every one of you, I love camping, longboarding, playing with my dog, spending time with my loved ones and just enjoying the time I've been blessed with.
Being able to thrive off of doing what you love.
- What do you wish you were told when you first started rapping that you think would help anyone recently starting artists out?
Perfectionism is a curse, nothing is or ever will be perfect. Do your best to make it sound good but once it does, don't over think it. Drop that shit.
I just released an album on May 4th called "Forever Woke" it's available on all streaming platforms. The next one is coming really soon.
- Where do we find your music/music project?
- Every major music platform underneath "White Crow" look for the new album "Forever Woke".
