“Also, web presence is a must. Why spend money to do shows locally when you can spend money to market yourself to different demographics on the web?”
Check out the interview with Frost G exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Frost G: It all started in Killeen, TX after a 4 out ta 5 year bid for possession of controlled substance. While I was doing my bid God said, “You spent so much of your life doing things the wrong way. Try doing it the right way and I’ll bless the fruits of your labor.” So I moved to Austin to take care of my paraplegic bro who was shot while I was in prison, started being an active father for my kids, and solely relied on God and my talent.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Research all your investments thoroughly. Unless you know somebody in the industry, people will try to get over however they can. Utilize all social media platforms, not just one. Also, web presence is a must. Why spend money to do shows locally when you can spend money to market yourself to different demographics on the web? That’s enough free game.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Finding instrumentals that actually touch your soul so you can write better and being consistent.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Once people see value in you it’s easy to promote and market yourself. Before that you gotta get it out the mud. Market yourself to multiple demographics, not just one.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
Killeen is playing for keeps. When you live in the jungle you gotta adapt to the jungle. There is but gorillas, lions, and hyenas out there. Austin has two certain sides. The fans love you, then they hate you, then they love you again. They love you if you if you are from outta town.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
Doing the same thing with just a lil’ more money and a couple more awards under my belt.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My kids and bro who was shot. I just want my bro to see me make it before God calls him home.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Trash. Dumpster juice. Garbage. Gar’bag’e. The music industry did it to themselves by putting horrible ass rapping partners on. That’s what happens when you spoon feed a nation instead of making them work. There’s only a handful of artists that should actually be where they are at, er’body else are bandwagoners and groupies following a trend.
