“In 2007 I was in a car accident that blew up and I was trapped inside unconscious. I died three times and came back to life.”
Check out the interview with Mc’Loven exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
Mc’Loven: This all began in Pine Bluff, AR. I was fifteen and I was listening to a lot of Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, and Twista. I started writing a lot of songs. Two years later I bought my own studio and in my tenth grade year I release my first mixtape, Real Recognize Real. In three days I was out of three hundred CDs. Fast forward to 2016, I’m counting 30 million plays in all on my Soundcloud page. I am the king of Arkansas.
What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
The best way to promote yourself as an artist is by networking. You gotta take risks and reach out to different people.
What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
A music legend.
What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
People playing me for my money. People didn’t get back in touch with me after I paid the required money payment.
What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
I live in Little Rock, AR. My city likes to kick it and have a good time; always a big party to go to on the weekends. Power and the Metroplex always have celebrity music artists come out and perform. Arkansas has a lot of great talent that’s being overlooked. I love Arkansas, I love my city; overall I love living here.
What are some of advice you can give and share to other artists who are still trying to come up?
Don’t give up, stay focused; music takes a lot of hard work and dedication.
What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
Trina shared my music on her Facebook and Twitter page. She called me her little homie. Yo Gotti told me he fucks with my music.
What is your inspiration?
Just listen to different beats. Listening to myself; I’m my own motivation because of what I’ve been through. In 2007 I was in a car accident that blew up and I was trapped inside unconscious. I died three times and came back to life. I thank god for that. I had to re-learn how to talk and to walk again. I have had over 202 surgeries in all.
Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
You can do anything if you put your mind, heart, and soul into it.
Where can we find you on social media?
