“You have to be able to not be number one sometimes and take criticism.”
Check out the interview with S.N.E exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
S.N.E: K.P And Lil Bill first met in high school. Realizing that we both had a liking in music, we created our first group D.O.P.E. Later down the line after hearing music from Cill.E, we came up with the group name S.N.E (SavageNationEnt). After releasing our first mixtape Bitchez & Barz, we gained the opportunity to not only open up a show for rapper Gorrila Zoe, in November of 2015 we won second place at a Coast 2 Coast tour contest.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Our biggest advice to the young is to just persevere and stay motivated. Always stay focused on what you want to do. You have to be able to not be number one sometimes and take criticism. Life ain’t easy and you got to just shoot for your dreams. Only you can block yourself from the touchdown, you have to get them yards.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Keeping your drive going because there is so much to being a rapper it’s hard to want to keep it up. There’s so many rappers out here it’s ridiculous and so many styles now. Hip hop just ain’t the same. Not to mention being from Colorado just makes everything harder, so many haters and sides it’s hard to even get a solid fan base out here.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
It’s not like we’ve made it big or nothing, so the best advice I can give is just to stay true to your game. Stay consistent, use your tools, and social media is everything now. Use your hands you know, footwork and connections play a big part too.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
My city doesn’t really have a good music scene. There’s rappers and little shows, but people out here only vibe with their own squads and groups no matter if they like it or not. People like who they like and never give people a chance. That’s why we have no buzz as a city. Shout out to Trev Rich.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
We see ourselves being better connected in the game and a way bigger fan base. Of course everybody wants to be rich and famous, but we just love music and want the world to hear this S.N.E music. Hopefully in a year all our families and friends, and of course us, are living comfortable.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
We are going to miss Obama; that’s for sure. Our family’s and kids. We all got little younglings and different inspirations in different ways, but we all were inspired by the goat Lil Wayne. He was rap in our day. Now, there’s not too much talent in the game anymore. Only a handful of rappers are lyrical.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I feel we need to bring hip hop back or somebody does because rap is dead now. The producers make it hot because of these beats, but in general music has fell off completely and we plan on bringing it back.
