“I’ve applied my mind to learning how to promote and advertise.”

Check out the interview with Lover Bul Genius exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.­­­­

Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Lover Bul Genius:
It started at the early age of 8 years old. As a young’n I would draw hip hop images from the 90’s and early 2000 era of the culture and always looked at myself as a “super-rapper” or something. As a child I was artistic and had a good sense of personal identity.

What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
My biggest piece of advice would be to make wise decisions on your way to reaching your goals, dreams, and self-potential. Dream big and live your truth is another important one. I’ve felt how it is when you feel like the world is hell for you and no one understands. Just start over but never give up or look back.

What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Some of the hardest challenges for me at this position is time management and creative blocks. I like live in my mind on some super genius shit. So, between chasing the cream and spending time with my daughter and other whole, that can be a challenge for me. I’m a Cancer, so maybe I cling to the good too long.

We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
The best way for me to promote my music is Soundcloud and Instagram right now. Plus I like the lessons from learning when you apply your mind to your craft when promoting new material. I’ve applied my mind to learning how to promote and advertise.

Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
Well for the most part my city is dope when you focus on the positive side of shit. Excuse my slang. I’ve received positive feedback about what I do as an artist and the fans will let you know it. You can’t fake the funk out here and the streets run long. Fans love the culture and I’m interested in giving that raw material they want to hear and can relate to.

Where do you see yourself a year from today?
A year from now I see myself relating more to my family, friends, and fans. I’m really into culture so my idea is to always have wisdom in my life.

Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My biggest inspiration in today’s world is those that love truth and can understand things as what it is. People that help me grow and things that I can give to the people I care about inspire me.

How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
The music today, not really feel’n it. I’m into science and shit like that and some of it make sense and some not. I’m just creative and I stay in my lane. I’m the Bul for the creative people to want to talk about at their next social event or something. What up to all the creative directors.
