“Remember everyone starts off from somewhere. Don’t let no one bring you down because you’re still working at it.”
Check out the interview with Crash Mob exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Crash Mob: All started like 2012, seen a lot of people as big musicians and just kept on going. I never gave up, got my own flow, and my people just kept encouraging to keep going. I’m 19 now and have been doing this since 14. I write my own tracks, nobody helps me. It’s all me. I know people will like me. They just gotta hear me. I gotta make my self-known.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Never take nobody’s clout. Do it all yourself. Never give up. Remember everyone starts off from somewhere. Don’t let no one bring you down because you’re still working at it. There’s gonna be one day you have a song that most people like that can blow up. If you really love doing music you won’t care about anyone’s opinion.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Sometimes the hardest part is starting a song off and ending it. I really have to be by myself to feel the mood and to think and focus. I love this music stuff. I know a lot of people would too if they were to hear me. I mostly overcome my challenges because I always think to myself and imagine how the song will come out recorded and edited.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Keep doing videos, post it on social media, and do shows.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
I’m from Bronx, New York where a lot a young males have ghetto lifestyles. Too much violence. People here don’t really take music serious. They just think this could happen overnight and that’s rare. Over the years I gathered a fan base throughout my area, certain people motivate me and tell me to keep pushing.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
If I keep working and keep putting my name out there, eventually someone will notice me one day. I will never give up.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
I really don’t look up to nobody, but over the years I’d check artists that are already in the industry and rap their songs over and over till I got their flow down.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Yes I love it. The new generation, the new style. I love old school hip hop, but sometimes things gotta change. It can’t be the same all the time.
