“I see 10 years into the future so when I paint pictures lyrically sometimes it’s difficult for some to grasp because most individuals only think and see things as they currently are.”
Check out the interview with PeaceGod exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
PeaceGod: This all began in the shower. I remember growing up and always bringing my CD player into the bathroom with me as I cleansed my body. I could never hear the words to the songs, I could only hear the instrumentals so I was kind of forced to create my own songs. My favorite music artists were Lil Wayne and Jay Z. Those are the two artists that spawned the creative flow.
What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
The best way for me to promote myself is to be myself. The only tip I can give you is to be yourself.
What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
I want to influence the world. I want to become a legend. I want to remain timeless. I want your whole family tree to be aware of the PeaceGod.
What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
The hardest thing thus far has been getting the rest of the world to see the vision. I see 10 years into the future so when I paint pictures lyrically sometimes it’s difficult for some to grasp because most individuals only think and see things as they currently are.
What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
Since this is my first major interview, let me be honest. Chattanooga’s a beautiful city. The fine arts and music scene is starting to feel like a new age renaissance. As of late we’ve been plagued by gang violence and people dying everyday as if it were a war zone. The only thing that gives us saving grace is the music and art scene. That’s the key to our revival.
What are some of advice you can give and share to other artists who are still trying to come up?
What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
The best thing thus far has been touching the souls and uplifting the spirits of my listeners. There’s nothing better.
What is your inspiration?
I am inspired by the woes of life.
Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
I feel like success is a personal issue. I think a person has to define what success means to them and then go for it.
