“You have to grind hard and go for everything you want, so if you keep that mindset, you will make it. Never give up, be strong, and manifest your dreams into reality.”
Check out the interview with Tahirbrinkz exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
SKILLY: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
Tahirbrinkz: Well, first of all, I would like to thank Skilly Magazine for the opportunity. This all began since my teens. I always had the love for music before my father passed in 1996 from cancer. He was going to build a studio in my basement at my grandma’s house but he never got the chance to because he got sick so I feel I am living his legacy and my dream right now. Also i have been working in the music scene ever since rather it’s doing hooks or promotions.
What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
I think the best way to promote yourself is social media. I use my following even though it’s not that big to generate income to promote and views and streams.
What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
What I want to become ultimately in my career is to use my platform to give underground entertainers a chance to get notoriety.
What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
The hardest thing about being in the music business is it’s one man one armband. Nobody won’t help you if you can’t help yourself. There are no more handouts in this business. You have to grind hard and go for everything you want, so if you keep that mindset, you will make it. Never give up, be strong, and manifest your dreams into reality.
What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
Well, I am from Philadelphia and it’s a tough crowd to please so you have to come correct and you have to have tough skin, also dare to be different. I don’t follow waves, I create them.
What are some of the advice you can give and share with other artists who are still trying to come up?
Keep pushing and never give up. Be strong, if you can believe it, you can achieve it.
What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
The best thing that ever happened to me is being able to start my own lane and my brand.
What is your inspiration?
I am inspired by young brothers and sisters who I see being able to provide for their families and doing what they love with this music industry.
Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
It sure seems that way but you have to want it, you have to eat, sleep, dream, walk, talk music if this is really what you want to do.
