“The greatest challenge I face in the entertainment business are the haters or the negative people. As long as I know I got what it takes to make it and have faith I’m going to keep doing me because I can feel my time to shine is coming.”

Check out the interview with Relly Rell exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Relly Rell:
It runs in the family but believe it or not I wrote my first rap in the second grade. One day I told my cousin let’s try to make a song and it started from there.

What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
I use Soundcloud and different social media to promote my music or at a party I’ll have my homie play the song and everybody asks, “Damn who this?”

What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The greatest challenge I face in the entertainment business are the haters or the negative people. As long as I know I got what it takes to make it and have faith I’m going to keep doing me because I can feel my time to shine is coming.

How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music scene in my hometown is very local. What I don’t like about it is how people in my town hate on each other and don’t really support each other as artists. What I do like about it is I have a chance to put my city on.

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 feel like the future of music will be different sounds and artists could be more part of it by having a different style and being themselves instead of swagger jacking.

What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Advice that I can give an upcoming artist is to always have faith and believe because you can do whatever you put your mind to. Don’t let other people stop your dream. Make music based on concepts people can relate to, don’t be like everybody else.

What inspires you to write your next song?
What inspires me to write my next song is the song I make before that because it will sound good. I always feel like I can go even harder.

What are the steps you take to make a song?
The steps I take in making a song is whenever I’m writing I think of concepts and things people can relate to or something they can feel or sometimes it maybe something you can groove to.

What do you think makes a great song?
What I think makes a great song is putting your time and effort in it and not rushing it.
