“I can honestly say I never for one second stop rhyming inside my head. It became an everyday thing for me.”
Check out the interview with Chuck Tha God exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Chuck Tha God: For me it started back in my high school days. Beat boxing and freestyling almost every day at lunch time or whenever we could. My friends at the time always would tell me I should rap for real, so I started to take that into consideration.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
Social media plays a major part for my music to get heard. I promote it at all levels such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
For me the biggest challenge is not trying to sound the same as everyone. I want to bring a different deliverance to the scene and say I did it my way. So to overcome it I just constantly create and create inside of my brain. I can honestly say I never for one second stop rhyming inside my head. It became an everyday thing for me.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
This hip hop scene here in Madison is really growing. I couldn’t complain about anything, honestly. Everyone’s got their own style and I just love to see people create. There’s a certain amount of artist I can actually listen to and vibe to here. If there’s one thing I dislike it’s the way people support here. They support popularity over any anything.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
I’m hoping for a major change to happen and I’m gonna try to pressure myself to make that happen. The future for it looks scary if you ask me. We only see music that’s dumbing down the youth and things like that, and the only way I’ll be a part of it is bringing a different message to the youth.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Just keep creating and constantly work on your craft every single day. I’m a firm believer in if you think it you can become it. Just believe in yourself and set your goals high and climb that ladder.
What inspires you to write your next song?
For me I can write about anything. Sometimes it all depends on how I’m feeling and most of the time I’m in a happy place in my life. I inspire myself most of the time, but recently after releasing my latest songs and seeing how great people react to them, I definitely know what they want from me now. I’m currently in a shift with my music.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I sit at my desk and I tune the world out. I’m always listening to beats, and if I can feel a connection between me and that particular beat it comes very easy to me.
What do you think makes a great song?
Great quality makes a song really great. You can’t rush into it, you must take your time and I learn that fast as hell. A song has to have great beat selection, lyrics that deliver and that can really touch the listener.
