“The fan base here is pretty weird and I say that because they only show love when they see a buzz or actual moves. They don’t support up and coming artists. I remember putting out music and nobody was messing with it at, all this was back in 2013.”
Check out the interview with Vee exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Vee: I started back in 2012 with my cousin on an Acer laptop and a mic from Wal-Mart. At first it was just for fun, on and off, then I stopped and planned out the entire 2013-2014 year with what I really wanted out of the music world. I was still putting out music during those years, but it’s not like what I’m doing right now
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Just keep going. Everyone will have their own opinion on what you’re doing. Just use that as motivation. Be the best at whatever you want to do.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Honestly, the hard part of this to me is nothing because I like the challenge. There’s a lot of nice artists coming out of Toronto, it keeps my creativity going.
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 all about networking which is actually a lot of work especially if you’re not really getting help from anyone. Shout out to the people that show love, it is well appreciated.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
Toronto has artists with a lot of creativity. We’re only now getting that exposure because of big bro Drizzy. The fan base here is pretty weird and I say that because they only show love when they see a buzz or actual moves. They don’t support up and coming artists. I remember putting out music and nobody was messing with it at, all this was back in 2013.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
I would like to see myself at the reputed position where I could say that I never expect to get, but I got it with my hard work.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
My biggest inspiration is the failures that I have faced throughout my life because failures are the stepping stones to success. I really don’t look up to anyone, but if I had to choose it’d be Drake only because he always had people surprised and wondering what he’s going to do next.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
I mess with everything that’s coming out now, as long as it’s good I like it.
