“The toughest challenge for me is having the money to pay to have the quality of work I desire. To me that’s not an excuse and I just grind through it …”

Check out the interview with Spread Love exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Spread Love:
I was always in music. I took drum and guitar lessons in 2nd grade. My journey into the business started back in like 5th or 6th grade when all us guys who would play basketball at recess would battle rap. Not so seriously, but for me it was the highlight of my day. I would spend all day trying to think of bars and what I could say the next time I got to spit.

What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I just try to do the most I can. I have a pretty creative business card. I have cheap ass stickers I pass out like candy; people are always sending me pictures of my Eagle Gang stickers that get slapped around the town. I’m not about to give away all my secrets though.

What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The toughest challenge for me is having the money to pay to have the quality of work I desire. To me that’s not an excuse and I just grind through it, hustle hard to get it, and spend it right when I got it.

How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The scene in San Diego is beautiful. I love my hometown. The music scene is real diverse, you see every walk of life around here so every experience is different. There are a shit load of rappers, I will say that, and everybody has something special about them. We all want to put our city on.

Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
Music is only gonna get better. We just have to keep creating.

What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Don’t second guess yourself.

What inspires you to write your next song?
I’m coming up with ideas in my head constantly, but when it’s time to put a song together it usually has a lot to do with the beat especially if it’s during a studio session.

What are the steps you take to make a song?
Every song I’ve ever made was made differently.

What do you think makes a great song?
Emotion. Any song with real emotion is great.
