“We do this for the love of the creative process and to see masses of people jamming out to our music.”
Check out the interview with Other Side exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
Other Side: We are Other Side. We are from Brooklyn, New York and we came together because we went to the same school and started making diss songs about our classmates that got popping. We started to continue making more tracks and the people we know just wanted more and we got crazy serious. The music scene in Brooklyn is awesome.
What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
It is never going to happen overnight. Use family and friends to promote. Be bold. Find your audience. Talk to other artists. Stay on top of your social media. Stay relevant. Content is important so make music. Preview your music. Post your music in blogs.
What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
We do this for the love of the creative process and to see masses of people jamming out to our music. We aim to be topping charts and legends in the industry. Just wait on it.
What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
We are completely new to this. We are 19 and 18, we barely know anything about this game but to us it’s the legal part of it.
What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
NYC is cool but for dudes that have been here since birth it’s trash. The music scene is so fast you can’t keep up; everybody’s making songs.
What are some of advice you can give and share to other artists who are still trying to come up?
If you think you cannot succeed maybe you should quit music. That kind of mindset is not gonna get you anywhere.
What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
Since we are still grinding on our journey the best thing that was happened was having a crowd demand an encore at a show.
What is your inspiration?
Biggie, Eminem, Jay Z, Ourkast. And since we are from the projects. The drive to get out so bad.
Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
No, it takes hard work. No one can just walk in. They need some type of talent.
Where can we find you on social media?
