“Finally in 2013 after listening to many other artist and my first year of college, I decided to take my rap career serious and start recording.”
Check out the interview with FlightCommvnder exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
FlightCommvnder: I’ve been interested in hip hop/rap music since I first discovered music as a child. In early grade school I first came across Tupac and Snoop Dogg’s “America’s Most Wanted.” I wasn’t only fascinated with the rebellious lyrics, but the flashy lifestyle that came with the business. Finally in 2013 after listening to many other artist and my first year of college, I decided to take my rap career serious and start recording.
What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
The best way is to invest. Investing, networking, and blasting music through social media as much as possible. Social media has a big effect on today’s music.
What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
FlightCommvnder, FC, The Bucket, Charlie F. Bucket, the greatest.
What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
Gaining and maintaining a buzz and relevancy.
What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
It’s mixed between rappers who make old west coast music, music like the next best west coast rapper, or music like the new upcoming rappers. Barely original. It’s the Hollywood side of the United States. I don’t take anything from my coast, but it’s easier to filter the real from the actors.
What are some of advice you can give and share to other artists who are still trying to come up?
Quality and originality is almost everything. Everything else is almost you.
What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
Dropping my own mixtape.
What is your inspiration?
Music videos and flight rhymes.
Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
Yes, from independent to ultimate fame. Depends on what the artist is satisfied with.
