“Getting copyrights and working out copyright issues is worse than stubbing you’re toe on a door.”
Check out the interview with Thy Comedian exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Thy Comedian: I was editing before anything. Doing all that helped me understand how to put music here and there. I swore to the inner kid in me I was gonna become a director. You don’t even know how fast that changed when I noticed how simple rapping made it to escape from the world. It’s a little funny I guess because I’m tryna get people interested now.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
The most effective way is yelling at civilians. Never fails to shout your credentials at strangers.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
Getting copyrights and working out copyright issues is worse than stubbing you’re toe on a door. I’d love to release what I’m recording without the extra preparation, but if I do it like that anyone can take what I’m saying word for word and make a profit.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
Growing up in Warner Robins there wasn’t much of a music scene, but since I left I met a few artists who I’ve got high hopes on. I dislike how the majority wanna come up off someone else’s wave though.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
Try to be innovative at the right time. Don’t let mistakes get the best of you.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
The game’s egotistical and ridiculous, just stay dedicated and enjoy what you do.
What inspires you to write your next song?
Six times outta ten I’m putting randomly written lyrics together with whatever production I’m working with like a puzzle, but I’m always writing. When I’m trying to get my point across I usually have the concept down before a beat.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I listen to the beat over two hundred times before I do anything. Once I’m comfortable I’ll smoke before I record verses or hooks, then spend unusual amounts of time ruining it till it’s perfect.
What do you think makes a great song?
Quality is important, but people shove that down your throat as a first step when it comes to making music. The atmosphere you build is just as significant because for me songs like “Fire And Water” have edge to, it but every time you hear Pun’s verse you get a gritty feeling of what being an upcoming and hungry artist is supposed to sound like.
