“I’m inspired to make songs about my everyday situations. What drives my engine is the love and passion I put into my words. I speak of real life. A life that real people from the streets can all relate to.”
Check out the interview with Bizniz exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Bizniz: I started writing music as a young kid. It wasn’t until I stepped into a studio owned by my cousin Nunka (Sluggs) that I started to take music seriously. I started to understand how to make music the right way and why. I started networking hard and got a team together who’s helped me put together a recording studio of our own. We started recording and branded it with the Brothers Inc. stamp.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I myself using multiple forms of promotion. I use promotional markets such as Audio Mack, Soundcloud, Coast2Coast PR packages, and press releases. Most importantly paid advertisements via Amazon, ITunes, Spotify, YouTube, etc. It’s the only way to utilize promotion at its highest extent.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
At the moment my greatest challenge is the same challenge every other artist sees themselves facing. That’s the investing and profiting in and from registered works. The way I personally overcome these challenges is by being able to rely on my team to help afford what’s needed to release projects.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
To me the music scene is just like home because everywhere you go people are out trying so hard to impress. I for one don’t like the flashy life style. I can sure welcome flashy things into my life, but it’s not what I’d prefer. I’m more into being successful in music and furthering my career as an artist.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
As the digital age continues to grow ever so rapidly, I see the music industry being controlled by the big name retailers. Meaning the market places that artists use to sell their music. The only way to be a part of the ever growing market place is to continue to promote with the idea that every project is a make or breaker.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
The best advice that I can ever give to an artist with talent and whom is serious about what they do is never give up. Always keep in mind that what you’re doing is for a reason. Continue to push. Make moves that can only have positive outcomes. Put a team together. Honor that team. Work with your team on how to achieve your goals.
What inspires you to write your next song?
I’m inspired to make songs about my everyday situations. What drives my engine is the love and passion I put into my words. I speak of real life. A life that real people from the streets can all relate to.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
When I plan to make a song I first pinpoint the exact mood I’m in. I take about an hour selecting beats and instrumentals and once I have my beat, I start to develop the general concept for the song. I create a hook or chorus, then match a verse to the beat. I perfect it and I get it recorded and mastered. Copyrighted, registered, and released.
What do you think makes a great song?
Any effort that is put into a song to me makes a good song. What makes a great song takes nothing less than tireless effort put into words only described by success.
