“Stay consistent, believe in your craft when nobody else’s does, and don’t be afraid to fail because when you fail there’s always a lesson for you to learn to become a better person the next day.”
Check out the interview with WillCee exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Silly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
WillCee: I’ve always had the passion for music growing up. But the passion grew deeper when I really started to listen to J Dilla and a couple other producers. I started taking music really serious when I graduated high school.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Stay consistent, believe in your craft when nobody else’s does, and don’t be afraid to fail because when you fail there’s always a lesson for you to learn to become a better person the next day.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
The hardest challenge would be being patient and working with different artists who have different ideas than me.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
The best place would be Soundcloud and Facebook for me.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
My city is filled with talented artists and amazing fans who actually appreciated what hip hop does to the culture.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
A year from now I see myself on the XXL Freshman cover.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My biggest inspiration would have to be A Tribe Called Quest and J Dilla. Also I really appreciate what Kendrick Lamar is doing for the culture, he definitely inspires me to do something bigger.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
There’s good music out there, it’s just not getting the recognition it deserves. So no.
