“Those who believe in me and those who don’t. I just want to prove to myself that I’ve got what it takes to make great music people can enjoy.”
Check out the interview with Vick Lejet exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Vick Lejet: Through having connections to an engineer, producer, and a videographer. It all started late 2014 when I decided that I wanted to go all out with music.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
Post pictures on social media that catch people’s attention and build up hype with some of the captions on them too.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The amount of competition. I just try to stick with what I know and what I know what works best with me. I don’t try to compare myself with others.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
Rap music isn’t the most popular music choice in my hometown, but it’s still listened to by some. I like that I can introduce a sound that’s new for them and that they could vibe to. I don’t like the scare amount of opportunity over here.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
There will be so much music out there than ever. The internet is playing a big part in that. You’ve got streaming services, Soundcloud, YouTube, etc. Artists just need to keep putting music out there and doing shows.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
If you believe it, then you can achieve it. However, listen to constructive criticism and improve.
What inspires you to write your next song?
Those who believe in me and those who don’t. I just want to prove to myself that I’ve got what it takes to make great music people can enjoy.
What are the steps you take to make a song?
I freestyle flows and then write a concept. From there I slowly put all the pieces together. I let the beat talk to me and I go with the mood of it.
What do you think makes a great song?
Having great production, substance, lyrics, and melodies.
