“The greatest challenge is usually believing in yourself. Once you do that, everything starts falling in place.”

Check out the interview with Kinky P exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.­­­­

Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Kinky P:
I started making music around the age of 7, but I didn’t start rapping until the age of 15 when I moved to Atlanta, GA. Eventually I caught the attention of Freaky T, a member of Attic Crew, which I got my name from. Later I met Jason Weaver and Sky Keeton which I have a song with named “Good.”

What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I used to literally stand at the neighborhood gas station for hours to sell (and give away) my music early on. I met a lot of people that way that helped me gain shows, collaborations, and connections early on in my journey.

What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The greatest challenge is usually believing in yourself. Once you do that, everything starts falling in place.

How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
I love it. I like the talented individuals I meet in Atlanta. I love the fact that Atlanta respects stars.

Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
I see collabs with artists such as T.I., Andre 3000, Jeremih, Pharrell, Rick Ross, Ace Hood, Yung Joc, and many more. I see myself becoming a great performer and a well-known name in the music industry. I also see myself having my own record label and giving other artists a chance to experience this as well.

What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Always think positive and focus on what you intend to achieve. Anything is possible.

What inspires you to write your next song?
My family inspires me tremendously. The amazing people I’ve had the privilege to meet in this music industry and my family motivates me to keep growing and going in the right direction.

What are the steps you take to make a song?
When I’m recording, I work closely with the producers and engineers during the whole process. I don’t smoke, drink, bring females, or do anything that takes away from what I intend to accomplish. I eliminate all distractions and focus only on the music.

What do you think makes a great song?
A great artist.
