“Believe in your vision. Let no one detour you from what your dreams are. You dig. We all have a special talent within, the thing is we must find it.”
Check out the interview with Fofive exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
SKILLY: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
F: By our parents being artists music was around. Weekends our parents would conduct ciphers with both rappers and local beat makers. As they made songs we would look under the door as most battled and made songs for the respect of the hood. As they worked we began to do the same. Almost Forming songs and freestyles also as much as they did. As our name grew we began to have party’s that would soon catch the attention of our mother. When it did she invited my dad “Unkof45 ” to one. When he did and saw the impact we had on the city 4/5 was born.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Believe in your vision. Let no one detour you from what your dreams are. You dig. We all have a special talent within, the thing is we must find it.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Nothing becomes hard when you love what you do. We live and breathe music.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Digitally on every platform possible. Make use of your resources. And last learn the business accept of the game. Promo is everything.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
Port Arthur is a small city with a slew of talent. Hip-hop is present everywhere here. But because of its oration, it’s a lot of times overlooked. The fans are great but awaiting the “trill” to make an impact. The last to do it was Pimp and Bun.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
Motivating the world through music.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
God and all the legends before me. They paved the way as well as our parents. They were artists also.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Music is an expression. Everyone should feel free to create as see fit. At the end of the day the people will decide wants to be accepted and what not.
