“Some hard challenges is finding time, grinding, and going so hard for music it forces you to sacrifice some things that are important to you.”
Check out the interview with Wyze exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Wyze: The journey has been great. Ups and downs, learning the business had been a great experience for me. Learning you also have to put emotions to the side and understanding that this is the business side, not the artist thinking side. This all started as a kid rapping in the mirror to years later finally taking it seriously to try to reach the next level.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Always be true to yourself. Only you can control your destiny.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
I can’t really say. I welcome the experiences and challenges I face every day. I feel there’s always room to learn and grow in this business. Some hard challenges is finding time, grinding, and going so hard for music it forces you to sacrifice some things that are important to you.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
I think the best way is at your fingertips. Social media is the best, smartest, and easiest way to advertise and promote music today. Getting yourself out there physically is a big part too. Getting on stages and letting people know that you’re real.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans? Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
I love my city so much. So much color and passion for life and art. The artists here have the same passion I do on taking this to the next level. We are growing, making our mark on the world as a city that knows music – that knows hip hop.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
Hopefully on bigger and better stages, bigger crowds. Making more music and videos growing my brand.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
I will say my mother, one of the strongest people I know. She helped me get through a lot.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Music that’s coming out today is cool. I wouldn’t say it’s great. I like lyrics and artist actually saying words. I get today’s music though, I enjoy some of it. One thing I think is that there’s a difference when it’s comes to rap and hip hop. Some music today should have its own genre because it’s not rap or hip hop.
