“There are a lot of gimmicky internet websites that offer promotion and advertising, but the truly best way to promote yourself is to literally promote yourself. I am a supporter of self-promotion.”

Check out the interview with $acred G exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
$acred G:
I began creating music at the tender age of 7 years old when I picked the drums. Picking up the drums was quintessential in my development as an artist because it instilled a keen sense of rhythm and tempo.

What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Stay active, don’t give up. You hold the power and the keys to your future. All that it takes is a choice and dedication to greatness, and you will achieve greatness if you focus enough positive energy in that direction.

What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
The hardest challenge would have to be the challenge of time which is always limited because some of us play so many different roles. Time really becomes of the essence and when not utilized properly it can be very challenging.

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 find the best way is through creative and intuitive processes. There are a lot of gimmicky internet websites that offer promotion and advertising, but the truly best way to promote yourself is to literally promote yourself. I am a supporter of self-promotion.

Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
The fans and the artists are great. You meet so many different characters and folks with all different kinds of styles and different walks of life. For the most part everyone is cool and the music really plays a role in our scene, often times you’d be surprised at the type of people that would enjoy your music where I’m from.

Where do you see yourself a year from today?
I see myself highly advanced and progressed in a year from now. I am the type of person that believes in progression and self-development. I am always striving for these things in life and to not go along with my path would prove to be obsolete in my own essence because my purpose would be disproportioned.

Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
The likes of Warren Buffet, Richard Branson, Bill Gates, and other great Investors and businessmen because music makes money. Music is a business. Therefore, to be successful in these areas it’s best to look up to and become inspired the most successful and influential in those areas as well.

How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
It’s okay.
