MuzicNotez: First off, it’s an honor to be doing this interview with you, thanks for taking the time to sit down with us.
What motivated you to start creating music? What age did you begin?
C-Sharp: I listened to Kanye West in 2011, and by the time I began listening to Jay-Z, I already was trying and failing to Rap. Eventually, listening to Poor Righteous Teachers – Conscious Style on an internet radio station changed my life. Then I started rapping more.
MuzicNotez: Who were your musical influences, idols, or bands growing up that have helped mold you into the musician you are today? Or helped mold the music that you create?
C-Sharp: I started listening to 90s Rap, where I am heavily influenced by artists such as Kool G. Rap, Mobb Deep, M.O.P, Onyx, Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, Black Moon, Das EFX, Cocoa Brovaz, individual Clan artists, MF Grimm Reaper, MF Doom, Old Eminem, B-1, (Queens rapper on 4, 5, 6 by Kool G. Rap), many other artists, myself, my friends, and most importantly, my family. It would be impossible without you. I love you
MuzicNotez: What’s the ultimate goal you want your music to achieve, or for you to achieve in your career as a musician? Any particular message you wish to send?
C-Sharp: My goal is to bring GOOD Rap music back into the mainstream, just like the 90s. I also want to become rich and famous while still rapping and being a legendary rap god.
MuzicNotez: What’s the greatest concert you’ve ever been to or performed?
C-Sharp: At my school, near the end of October 2015 for Homecoming.
MuzicNotez: What’s your writing style like?
C-Sharp: I practice by freestyling and writing rhymes, so my style is a very lyrical, dense multisyllabic form of beautiful poetry. My goal is to be a legendary storyteller like Kool G. Rap.
MuzicNotez: Do you record in a studio or do you handle the whole process at home?
C-Sharp: The song “Seven” was recorded with a cheap microphone at home with rhymes I wrote with the dome, while coding at home, I starting coding a poem, Brothers, and they’re actually sequenced with Audacity and beats heard by many people. That’s a rhyme I just made while writing this document.
MuzicNotez: What’s the motivation behind your track ‘Seven’?
C-Sharp: It wasn’t going to be too big at first, just a fun party song, but as soon as I shared it on Instagram, I’m famous in both my old school and my new one.
MuzicNotez: What else are you working on? What can we expect to see and hear from you in the future?
C-Sharp: Very raw bars, you’ll see a ton of lyrics like a ton of cars.
MuzicNotez: Anything else you wish to say about yourself or your music? Any message for your fans?
C-Sharp: I love you all. Even critics, in the end, you help me become a better me. Fans, keep listening. Rappers, stay hungry and keep writing dope lyrics.
