“I would say learning to pick the right people to associate with especially since I’m a young artist with a different flow.”
Check out the interview with KamNutty exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
KamNutty: Music always been in my life. I was rapping a little around last year when I got a freestyle on the radio, but it never got serious until last October. A friend told me about her dad being a producer. To really get me started I started recording my first song “I Wanna.” I had a debut and fans loved it. I really never got to connect with her dad, so I just kept on pushing and got to where I am.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
To drop my songs I use TuneToTube and Soundcloud. I use Soundcloud online With a PC. Coming soon I will be using DistroKid. I will be using to distribute that on iTunes, Spotify, Etc.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
I would say learning to pick the right people to associate with especially since I’m a young artist with a different flow. So far things have been going good for me, but like I said, pick the right people that you want to represent you.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music scene is really like the new wave. The trap talk, mostly every rapper here uses it. What I like about is that it’s catchy and you can really turn up to it. What I don’t like is that every rapper really uses it. Reason why I don’t do it. I put myself in a different category and chose to be different. I still got good fans that love my music.
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 think it might go back to when rappers really rapped. I feel it’s easier when you can rap about your life and what you’re doing or what you did or what you plan to do. I feel artists can be a part by creating their own style. Exactly how I’m trying to come in the game now.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Advice I would give is to just do you and have a nice support system because this game can go left and right. It doesn’t hurt to be different. It has got me a lot of success. Let the haters talk because if they say bad things that means they are listening. Be yourself, stay in your lane, and do what you know how to do best.
What inspires you to write your next song?
What’s going on in my life like if I’ve been through something, or sometimes I write off a freestyle and put it together.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
Coming with a hook. Then a beat to use. I listen to the beat and do the hook and work on to the verse. I usually don’t get into the studio until my song is ready to record.
What do you think makes a great song?
In this day you really just need something the fans can vibe to. A nice beat, the right words, and how you rap/sing the words .
