“Making a name for yourself because it’s harder to make a name unless you know connections in the game. It’s like I’m starting from the bottom and working my way to the top.”
Check out the interview with Spectro Da King exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Tell us where this all began. What is your history in the music scene?
Spectro Da King: I’m an upcoming artist in Vegas whose style is versatile and interesting. I came to Las Vegas in 2010 and started my rapping career; ever since then rapping has been my passion. I’ve been doing shows in Vegas with a group called We Dem Young Starz and am a part of the group ATG (After The Gwap) which is another upcoming group label as well. I’m striving to be the best artist to come up in this rap game in 2016-2017.
What are the best ways to promote yourself as an artist? Any tips you can give us?
Promote every day. Let people know what’s going on. Keep your fans engaged on what you’re doing, whether if you’re in the studio or whatever that has to do with music.
What do you ultimately want to become in your career?
I want to become the greatest that there ever was in the rap game. I came in at a young age and just want to be on top of the world with the people that supported me to the fullest. I’m going to get there no matter how the situation is.
What is the hardest thing about being in the music business?
Making a name for yourself because it’s harder to make a name unless you know connections in the game. It’s like I’m starting from the bottom and working my way to the top.
What is it like in your city? What is the music scene like, and how is it like living there overall?
In Las Vegas the music scene has a lot of raw talent. Everybody thinks they’re better than everybody else and too cocky in their own way that when they a get a little fan base they get too hyped in the head. Living here is the exact same way. A lot of stuck up people that will stab you in the back, but also you may come across some good people living here.
What are some of advice you can give and share to other artists who are still trying to come up?
Keep grinding, keep working, and don’t ever let nobody tell you can’t make it because when you do they start hopping on the bandwagon with everybody else.
What is the best thing that’s ever happened in your career?
Finishing my mixtape and getting a lot of recognition for my first music video.
What is your inspiration?
My inspiration is Ice Cube, Nas, and Drake because from their flow to the delivery to their lyrics to their energy I understand where they come from. It amazes me because I look up to these rappers because there’s not a song I can say that was bad or sucked or was just okay.
Do you feel anyone can be successful now in today’s world of music?
Yes I do because you can make a song about the simplest thing and it will be a hit just like that.
