“Learn the business because ain’t nothing worse than being a star with no money.”
Check out the interview with Timelesz exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Timelesz: It didn’t become a business for me until I was 17years old. I met an emcee and a manager, and they wanted me to be in their group. I didn’t know nothing about the business aspect at that age, all I knew is that I wanted to be a star.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Learn the business because ain’t nothing worse than being a star with no money.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Networking because its stars, radio and club DJs, and just most of the multimedia frenzy that won’t give a damn about what you got and what you’re trying to do with it.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
You got to pull out all the stops. It goes to the types of networking I was talking about before: multimedia, orint media, radio and club DJs, etc.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
My city has issues that need to be taken care of. The fans are good, they just expect you to stay consistent.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
One maxi-single, one mixtape, and one album.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
Mid 80’s to late 90’s; just about everyone from those years. Jay-Z, Nas, Fat Joe, Snoop, Dr.Dre, Ice Cube is who I look up to in today’s world.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I wish artists would be more creative, but I can live with it.
