“Think the future of music will be very spacey and popish. Artist can most likely be more a part of music being multi-dimensioned and self-efficient.”

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

SKILLY: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
C: My uncle Izman took me off the corner and put me in front of a mic. After he asked me one day after, I haven’t seen him in years, what am I good at, and I told him rapping. I got my start rapping from a cousin on the weekend he came to Maryland from New York. Smoked a blunt with me. Then freestyled for me, then told me to try and I haven’t stopped since.

What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
Social media, for now, IG, Facebook, and SoundCloud.

What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
Find individuals to be positive, supportive and sincerely encouraging and helpful to my goals and dreams.

How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
Slow and unresponsive! Artist are poetic I don’t like everybody is so just for themselves! I like artists that are poetic and very expressive passionate about what they do, also who they are.

Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
Think the future of music will be very spacey and popish. Artist can most likely be more a part of music being multi-dimensioned and self-efficient.

What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Pray, talk to and thank God often first for your talents and gifts. Practice all facets of your dreams often. Also, let the people hear and see you.

What inspires you to write your next song?
My radio which is God gives me lyrics, beats, and life experiences.

What are the steps you take to make a song?
Either my radio cuts on God gives me some words or I cut on a beat and my heart loves it I freestyle then edit the freestyle or I just simply write.

What do you think makes a great song?
Passion, vivid pictures, good music, catchy rhyme schemes and creative lyrics, a fire delivery.
