“I do like is that there’s nobody really known that comes from Minnesota. I would like to be that guy.”
Check out the interview with Tunndra exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Tunndra: I wanted to be a business man not focused at all at being a rapper. Music was always my thing until my dad died and we had his funeral on my birthday. I needed something to put my pain and anger to and I decided to go into music. I did my research and picked up my own style which is known today as tunndra.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I use Facebook, YouTube, Soundcloud, and Instagram.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
Getting known and heard. I overcome by switching up word play and style on different songs.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The scene’s so dry and dead in Minnesota. It’s hard to get known here. The up and comers are slept on and there’s a lot of talent. I do like is that there’s nobody really known that comes from Minnesota. I would like to be that guy.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Put in what you want to get out of it. Don’t be scared to open your music style wider and see what’s out there. Don’t give up. Everybody gets a chance, just depends what you do with it.
What inspires you to write your next song?
My fans. I want reaction and feedback. My drive to get famous for my music. I think my background story and what I can spit about is really going to open eyes and offer freshness to the game.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
First I find topic. It’s about how fast and how slow I want. I have to make sure the beat matches my words. I try to do me and stay original on my songs.
What do you think makes a great song?
Catchiness. Get the rhyme going and let the words and the beat do the rest. I feel like what makes a great song is time and images, and the message you’re giving to the people and the fans.
