“What I don’t like is that there’s so much hate and lack of support for up and coming artist from fellow up and coming artists from NY. I feel like we should bring each other up and not put each other down.”
Check out the interview with TyBanga NewYork exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
TyBanga NewYork: It all started in the basement of my uncle’s barber Shop in The Bronx on East 174th Street. What started out to be just fooling around in the booth actually turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
The best ways I use to promote my music besides social media is actually going out and performing in front of people.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
Getting my music out to a broader audience. The best way for me to overcome that is to just keep grinding and put out more and more music.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
I love the fact that whenever an artist makes it big and they are from NYC, they get so much love from their hometown. What I don’t like is that there’s so much hate and lack of support for up and coming artist from fellow up and coming artists from NY. I feel like we should bring each other up and not put each other down.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
Music is never ending and it will never die. I feel like in order for an artist to stay relevant in the business they should put out different varieties of music like collaborations with artists from different genres.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Believe in your music and don’t stop working hard. Hard work truly pays off if and when you keep at it. Also, do as many lives shows as possible.
What inspires you to write your next song?
It’s all about how catchy the beat is. If I can just zone out while I listen to the beat, then I know for a fact I can create a hit song.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I listen to the beat/instrumental over and over again until a catchy hook pops into my head.
What do you think makes a great song?
A great beat, a relatable verse or two, and a catchy hook.
