Check out the interview with Getitman Fresh exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Getitman Fresh: It all start when I was 9 years old. Music is my passion and the journey has been rough and long, but I finally feel good about my music I finally have full control of my style of music. I started my own record label Pavway Records and everything is what I thought it would be.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I use all social media in networking and a lot of ground work. It’s been, and still is, sleepless nights and early mornings. And reaching out to other sources like Skilly Magazine.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The greatest challenge that I face and more artists all over face is everyone’s in competition with each other. I’m very competitive, but with everything changing so fast you got to move with it or get ran over. The digital world is where I’m very competitive. That’s the new way now. To overcome this is to go in hard with everything you got.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
I’m from Oklahoma City, everyone is still trying to make it here. I see a lot of hungry artists, a lot of very good talent here.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
The future of music is going digital. If you’re not computer smart you’re going to get left behind. Everything is moving so fast now. Even the latest won’t be the latest too long. There’s always something new coming out.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
The only advice I got is to stay working. Never give up on your dream. It’s not going to be pretty or easy, but as long as you stay true to you I think the good will eventually come. Hard work pays off.
What inspires you to write your next song?
My inspiration comes from my kids, they keep me in a positive vibe so the music I make is for them. They are my number 1 fans.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
The steps I take is first making a beat and then coming up with a message in staying true. I try to write songs that I can relate to things I have been through or seen in my life.
What do you think makes a great song?
A great beat and also the message behind it. Those 2 things will go a long way.
