“I also promote music through charitable events and organizations. I come from a low-income, rural community with little resources. In turn I promote music and charitable efforts in one strive.”
Check out the interview with Rockstar Vegas exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Rockstar Vegas: I watched musicians from a young age do laboring and promoting music. I was able to start my journey in the entertainment business through networking and getting my talent out. I learned to consider all styles, genres, and techniques when making music and it opened my world of creativity and possibilities up.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
As a young entrepreneur and philanthropist, I also promote music through charitable events and organizations. I come from a low-income, rural community with little resources. In turn I promote music and charitable efforts in one strive.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
My greatest challenge in the entertainment business is that I have a hard time finding genuine musicians who are not just all about the dollar. Music is the core of me. I can wake up 4:00 a.m. out of my sleep and do good music. Finding musicians and producers with the same intensity and passion is hard.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music scene in my hometown is evolving. What I like about it is most local artists stick together. In my opinion this has also hindered the success of local artists due to their lack of exposure.
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 think the future of music is going back where it originally started. Just like the fashion industry and film industry, everything seems to have its full circle. It is my belief that artists like L.L. Cool J, Run DMC, and Notorious B.I.G will come back and reign. I intend on bringing some of the original hip hop back myself.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
My advice to upcoming artists is to stay level headed and find common grounds with religion and spirituality. The entertainment business can be draining and easily change your focus. It’s easy to lose yourself. Keep genuine family and friends close.
What inspires you to write your next song?
Life events and true feelings help me write my next song. I strive to have sincere deliverance and expression in order to create a masterpiece.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
Most of my tracks are spur of the moment. I admit I have some awesome engineers and producers. A lot of times I go to the studio within a few hours’ notice and lay a track.
What do you think makes a great song?
I think genuine feelings and emotions create a great song. Most popular artist express real feelings in their songs. This makes the experience relatable for the listeners.
