“To be real, I’m taking things slow. I’m not rushing my music or rushing to sign any deals. I’m enjoying myself, my music, and my life.”
Check out the interview with Pedro Breeze exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Pedro Breeze: I started doing music about a year and a half ago. I think I always had a thing for rap and hip hop, but I never thought I was good enough to take it seriously. One day I decided to just do it. I went to the studio and recorded a song I had stuck in my head for weeks. Once the track was done I sent it everyone that was close to me to get their opinion. They loved it. Making music has been a breeze ever since
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 to any upcoming artist is jump. Many artist have the potential to go far but are afraid to live out their dreams. Don’t be afraid to fail. Don’t be afraid to fall. Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams. We ain’t put on this planet to waste our lives away.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Staying humble. I get a lot of guys from my neighborhood tell me how nice I am and how I am one of the best in my area. I can’t let all of that go to my head. Having an egotistical mindset can close a lot of doors and opportunities in the future. You gotta stay humble and appreciate what you have.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
I think the best way to promote your music is through the internet. The world wide web can either be your friend or foe. If you utilize it correctly the internet can really help you. Social media is the key nowadays, ain’t nobody standing outside giving CDs no more.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
I come from a small town, Pemberton, New Jersey. Egos tend to clash which puts a wall up between artists. If Jersey came together we could really do damage. Even our fans can be a challenge to work with. You gotta be the best of the best for people to support you, and even then people still won’t fully support you.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
To be real, I’m taking things slow. I’m not rushing my music or rushing to sign any deals. I’m enjoying myself, my music, and my life. I do see my next mixtape having some big name artists on it so by next year I definitely plan on progressing further in my career.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
Will Smith. He has always been my inspiration. He says, “You can do whatever you want to do in life but are you willing to do whatever it takes to succeed?” T.I. is one of my all-time favorite rappers. He shows what it means to be a father, but still keep it real and handle business – street wise and corporate wise.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I do and I don’t. I like the hooks but not so much the lyrics. There are still lyrical rappers out there that can really spit bars. I think music is just taking a change of course like it always does. As long as good music doesn’t completely die we’re good.
