My biggest inspiration though, is my grandmother Rosetta Hayman-Banks, because she saw the spark in me before I knew that I had it! And my inspiration is to build a dynasty so that the next generation can be their own bosses and build dynasties of their own.

Check out the interview with  Sincere Banks exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

SKILLY: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
SB: I was born with it, but it wasn’t until 2004 when I realized my gift only after people who take their career seriously that I hung/hang around started to take notice and encourage me to take it serious.

What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Well actually I have a couple of pieces of advice for young kids as well as anyone blessed enough to have vision to have a dream and dare to chase it and make it a reality!

“1. Be Yourself and/or be original because there is only one you and nobody can be a better you than you!

2. You must have thick skin, because it takes patience and dedication and there will be alot of “NO’s” but all you need is one “YES.”

What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Haha! Honestly, the biggest challenge for me is that “I CAN’T STOP!” And to elaborate on that further, what I mean is that the music part and that whole creative process is like therapy for me. It’s really bigger than just music for me because I love the hustle and work that goes into building a brand from the ground up. My mind is going full speed 25 hours a day coming up with ideas to execute.

We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Think outside the box and create opportunities for yourself. Invest in your craft. That doesn’t only mean money, invest time because the same effort that you give and the same energy that you put into your craft is exactly what you get back. Now a days, we are walking billboards with all the social media platforms we have access to. The same way you can post memes and pics on social media all day everyday, you could be putting that energy into promoting your own brand. Its that simple. Build a team of individuals just as hungry and focused.

Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
I love my city of Little Rock. It’s uber talented artists and fans of the music who create different hustles and also opportunities through music. Not just my city, but Arkansas as a whole has a lot of slept on talented people who are about to make a lot of noise.

For instance you got my Big Bro YK (artist/producer/CEO) of Grim Muzik making major moves and killing soundtracks for several major motion pictures/movies consistently. Then you have his partner in crime Stephan “SJ” James (artist/photographer/videographer/) who is the host of Independent Music Night at the Rev Room in Downtown Little Rock!

That’s just two examples what talented artist/fans creating opportunities. S/O to all the artist grinding and getting it in my city and to the fans much love. There’s no us without them.

Where do you see yourself a year from today?
A year from now, I as well as my entire Bully Bred/Natural Born Leaders/10 Digit Hustlas Family, we will be on the road touring and taking the world by storm!

Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My bro and the founder of Bully Bred, Mack Burden, my team/family (Bully Bred/Natural Born Leaders/10 Digit Hustlas), Ferocious, Buda, A.D Millz, Oddie Banks, Grim Muzik, Don Damn Key, T-Scrill, they are my inspirations as artists.

My biggest inspiration though, is my grandmother Rosetta Hayman-Banks, because she saw the spark in me before I knew that I had it! And my inspiration is to build a dynasty so that the next generation can be their own bosses and build dynasties of their own.

How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Like anything else in life, you have your pro’s and your cons!  One of the pros is that you get to see how much music has evolved throughout the years to even inspire others to create the new sounds/genres emerging today. One of the cons would be that because music can be made at the drop of a hat now, a lot of the new artist don’t respect the process, and therefor don’t much pay attention to detail as much now days.
