“Best advice is presentation. Your fans want the artist to match the description of looks and personality depending on what you say.”
Check out the interview with T.Ro exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
T.Ro: It began in an apartment. My friends were making music, but I just wrote poetry at that time. I put it on some beats because I was encouraged to do so, then I started to like the way I made myself sway.
What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
Best way to promote yourself is social media. Everyone is there all the time, so I recommend getting yourself on a well trafficked site. Also collaborations with other artists because their fans will tune in and here your feature.
What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
Ultimately I want to be an international artist and venture off to other entrepreneurial ventures.
What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
The hardest thing in music is being heard. You need to have attention grabbing moments in your music to keep the listener interested, for example changing flows multiple times.
What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
My city has its own hype. Freestyle battles put people in their feelings and the local shows get packed. Much talent and many collaborations.
What are some of advice you can give and share to other artists who are still trying to come up?
Best advice is presentation. Your fans want the artist to match the description of looks and personality depending on what you say. Worst thing to a fan is an unreal artist.
What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
Best thing that happened so far was my first show. The crowd was so hype. I didn’t have to say most of the lyrics. They said that shit to me.
What is your inspiration?
My inspiration is Nipsey Hussle. Ever since Bullets Aint Got No Name I found myself seeing stories that are relatable from his words and they inspired me to talk to someone else out of a dark road hopefully.
Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
Yes, anyone can make it with hard work and determination. If you invest yourself into a craft there is no reason no results shouldn’t stem from it.
