“The music in my city is like a boiling pot. We got some great music waiting to be heard.”
Check out the interview with Inko kinko exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Inko kinko: I’m from a small city name Omaha, NE. It’s great for the family lifestyle but not a famous exciting lifestyle. So I wanted to warp my reality like any other kid did that was destined for greatness. I would pretend I was Biggie, Slick Rick, and Tupac. Every day I would practice their lyrics and add my own twist here and there. After a while I grew a love for music and what I could do with it. It was better than playing Nintendo,
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I let women broadcast my music on their Snapchat or Instagram while twerking or I just have competitions or giveaways.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
Everyone thinks their famous just because of 100 likes. I don’t base my music strategy from a like stand point. I’d rather interact with my fans/supporters any way I can physically. It makes a greater connection.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music in my city is like a boiling pot. We got some great music waiting to be heard. It’s just that Omaha is not known for the exciting music life. More collaborations should happen music wise.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
Music is great right now. It’s like a pot of gumbo mixed with a lot of great genres. It’s the time for the creative mind to shine, the ones who love thinking out of the box. It’s only gonna keep improving for the independent artist. Pretty soon major labels are gonna be out of business.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Master your craft and forever learn your field of music, that’s the only way to succeed.
What inspires you to write your next song?
Cartoons, it’s the only time I can zone out to really get into that creative space.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I freestyle over the beat several times, then I write the song 3 different ways. I compare the songs and freestyles, which ever one is flame that’s the one I will keep.
What do you think makes a great song?
Beat concept flow.
