“The hardest task is staying consistent with making quality music that the people appreciate on the regular.”
Check out the interview with Cokekane Novakane exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Cokekane Novakane: At the age of 16 I was introduced to music by a neighborhood DJ who let me record a few verses. From then on I made it my mission to turn this passion into more than just a hobby, I sought to conquer the rap world. Now at the age of 28 I’ve become a household name and after a 3 year hiatus from music I’m back stronger than before riding on the heels of my newly completed project Betrayal produced by longtime friend Kalani Ware.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Stay focused. Stay humble. No matter what always give it you’re all. You only fail when you don’t try.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
The hardest task is staying consistent with making quality music that the people appreciate on the regular.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
The best way to promote and advertise is networking at musical events. Sending music to blogs sites. Sharing music on social media and also being in the streets.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
I’m from the southwest side of Houston, Texas. We have a lot of artist in my city which makes it hard to pin point because it’s so saturated with artists. The fans in my city are great supporters. I love my city.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
Making one of the best hip hop albums of my generation.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My biggest inspirations were Tupac and Scarface. Artist that I look up to are Young Jeezy, T.I., and Nipsey Hussle.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
The music today has evolved. I do like the music in today’s generation, but I don’t like everyone sounding the same.
