“Maintenance. We as humans can do basically anything under the sun and yet the hardest part to it all is maintaining your status quo or your stature. So I just stay steady as a rock when moving in silence.”

Check out the interview with Censor exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Censor: It all started way back when I first wrote my first poems in middle school. Back then I was only sharpening my sword for the massacre that I’m bringing to the game in today’s time and age. I’ve kept to myself just working on me and who I’m to become. I’ve kept my ear to the streets and my heart on the beat, just so I speak words of wisdom and relief.

What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Never give up, never give in, never let others words break your skin.

What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Maintenance. We as humans can do basically anything under the sun and yet the hardest part to it all is maintaining your status quo or your stature. So I just stay steady as a rock when moving in silence.

We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Word of mouth x social media x hustling = success.

Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
Boston is so stuck on not being lit like Chicago or LA or the south or the obvious NY that we’ve evolved to the next levels in music. Fans? Good luck. With every up there’s a down, so finding or having fans or followers is a rare commodity because we don’t see ourselves as selfish but believe things change when you grow up in the bean. Yea, it’s all love out here but things can get real grizzy real quick.

Where do you see yourself a year from today?
In Boston. This is my home, I’ll reside here until I find a new one.

Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
I look up to God. No man, woman, or child is above, below, or in front of what I’m doing. I’m literally always on my one-two even as I sleep.

How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
There’s not many musically talented artists out nowadays, but there sure is a lot of soul searching from my point of view.
