“Take the time to really study what this industry is made of. Put money where your mouth is and invest in yourself, in the best equipment, and in marketing. Take the time to perfect your sound.”
Check out the interview with Froster exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Froster: I began writing music in the fall of 2013. In early 2015 I enrolled in Full Sail University online. I rebuilt my studio and booth then began working on my first EP Twenty Stacks Teen. One month later I was fortunate enough to be asked to join Trap Squad Entertainment (TSE) under local rapper Ray Gottie Don Dotta. Upon joining I dropped my newest EP New Wave.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Take the time to really study what this industry is made of. Put money where your mouth is and invest in yourself, in the best equipment, and in marketing. Take the time to perfect your sound. I know how it feels just wanting people to hear you but timing is everything.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Just juggling life and still being able to do my music and finding the time daily to create my music. Also finding the connections you need in this industry.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
You website is number one; mine is currently being created. Also a mailing list to connect with your real fans is very beneficial. After those word of mouth and social media. Facebook and YouTube are great along with Soundcloud.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
My city has a lot of talent. The artists who shine the most in my area are just like those who shine in other areas. They work the hardest. The fans are hard to gain really. Not many people support even the idea of you trying to become a famous rapper. Once you actually gain the fans, they seem to be there for the long run.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
I see myself possibly on a large tour or on my own tour. I see myself with a much larger fan base and much more great content for my fans.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
Caskey and Rae Sremmurd. Caskey has been my main inspiration. I found him on YouTube back in 2013 when I started making my own music. Rae Sremmurd is just the pinnacle of what todays fans want to hear. Both Caskey and Rae Sremmurd really make you feel the vibe in their music which is what I’m working on accomplishing.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I love today’s music. I feel as though there was never a day where you could really vibe to the music this well. Really feel it deep in your soul. Plus you also still have other forms of rap that aren’t considered mainstream anymore that are great to listen to.
Where can we contact you and find you online?
