“I don’t really see any challenges about it. In rap, it’s more competition. I’m just trying to be a better rapper every time I rap.”
Check out the interview with Fisher Kay exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Fisher Kay: I’ve been rapping since I was like thirteen. As far as how I started, having an online presence didn’t start until I started high school. I started putting music online then. It made its way around. You know how that goes.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I try and let the music speak for itself. Promotion is cool and all, but if the music isn’t all the way there then there’s no point.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
I don’t really see any challenges about it. In rap, it’s more competition. I’m just trying to be a better rapper every time I rap. Everybody makes a Soundcloud or a YouTube or posts a video on Facebook and all of a sudden we got so many rappers now. It’s just more about doing something to make yourself be memorable and stick out.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The community is more supportive of the local artists coming up now so that’s cool I guess. The artists don’t really support each other though and it’s whack. Shout out Fitchburg though.
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 always changing. New ideas and trends come and go. Artists are everything in music. Without us, there’s no music.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Don’t let anyone, no matter who they are, ever talk down on your art and what you do. You gotta hold yourself to the highest standard and give this shit 110%.
What inspires you to write your next song?
The things I see every day in life. I feel like Massachusetts, let alone Fitchburg, is way too slept on in everything especially rap music.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I find a beat, sometimes I make a beat if I’m feeling funky, then I write the song, then I record it.
What do you think makes a great song?
It has to be something people can feel. Whether they get sad or whether it makes them energized and want to move. It’s just gotta be something people can feel and want to hear. If not, nobody’s gonna care; simple.
