IAA:  What is your music background?

DUB WRIGHT:  As a kid growing up in the late 80s early 90s I was blessed to experience a variety of different artist and music in every genre. In seventh grade I realized I had a passion for poetry.  I use to write poems to girls as a way of showing my interest in them. Music is a big part of me. Although I never thought I would pursue a career in the music industry, it has always been around me. From hearing stories about my karaoke days and witnessing my aunt and uncles sing during family functions; music is me! I started off just promoted and networking for my team Don’t Blame Life. I watched them kill tracks as I picked up some of my own tips.  I then decided to put out a mixtape that was entitled S.e.t.b.a.c.k an acronym for Success Even Though Bullshit Always Comes Knocking.  That was my debut. Before I even dropped a mixtape I had already been performing, doing interviews and creating a buzz so it’s a blessing! My biggest show so far was in Bloomington, Indiana when I opened for MMG artist Stalley.

IAA:  Why do you want to record and release your music?

DUB WRIGHT:  Seeing the growth with my music has kept me going.  I want to create music that’s going to last after I’m gone. There are so many different emotions in music. I feel like when I release my music I’m giving you a part of me. I give you a part of me that consists of current, past and future things that I have been through, seen or plan on going through.  I know the fans will come because it’s real music. I feel like every time I record a track my mindset is to make it better than the last.  My fans are seeing me at ground level and watching me blossom into an artist that has his own vision, goals, and style.

IAA:  What are your songs about?

DUB WRIGHT:  Everyday life, usually how I feel at the certain time of recording. When you hear my verses you can expect to hear about the S.e.t.b.a.c.ks I have dealt with, uplifting and inspiring words, knowledge, love, power, peace, higher and lower self. No matter what it’s “Success Even Though Bullshit Always Comes Knocking”

IAA:  Who is your fan based directed towards?

DUB WRIGHT:  I focus on the ages of 18-35. I want to have music everyone can relate to no matter the age, race, or religion. Everyday life music is what I do.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences and why?

DUB WRIGHT:  First and foremost my mother and family because they have been through so much and supported me in whatever I chose to do.

I inspire myself when I come up with a dope song and the feeling of it just makes me want to do it forever especially when I get feedback. I accept all feedback.  Let me know what I’m doing wrong so I can fix it and kill it next time!

Before I get into this I have to say rest in peace to the greats that gave us so much more than music. I’m glad I had the chance to see them.

Kanye West inspires me because at first no one wanted him to hop on tracks and they doubted him. They said he could never be a rapper or didn’t believe in him. I believe Kanye has always been a dope musician. I love how he got into the game and is doing his thing.

Jay-Z because he is a natural born hustler! Jay-Z’s success, grind, longevity, and the iconic things he has done for both hip hop and the business industry influence me.

Lil Wayne, his bars are just crazy and I always just vibe with the flow definitely one of my favorite artist.

Rick Ross is a boss, enough said

I really like this new wave of artist that are breaking into the game. They have definitely motivated me to step my game up.

Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, and Usher are also influential. By far my favorite music has to be old school music. Back when music was at its finest. Overall  If it’s good music I like it! I don’t care what genre it is.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

DUB WRIGHT:   Raw, motivating, smooth, inspiring, real, right on time. On the come up!! Progression If your not continuing to grow not only as a person but as a mc your dying!!!

What makes you stand out from other artists?

DUB WRIGHT:  My attitude, my vision, how humble I am, and how I think not only as an Mc. Personally, I don’t believe in beef, don’t believe in hate, I believe we need to come together and build one another instead killing one another and destroying what our ancestors fought so hard for us to have. It is enough money out here for everybody to eat!

IAA:  What upcoming projects are your currently working on?

DUB WRIGHT:  As of right now I’m working with some new producers and some talented new artist in my region. Booking more shows, collabs and networking is what I been spending my time on. I plan on dropping an EP, and also my sophomore mixtape this summer.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 Years?

DUB WRIGHT:  I want to create classic albums, tour internationally, own a sports team, have my own label, and open a few businesses.  In ten years. I see myself being a frontrunner in this music industry. I see myself venturing into the movie scene. I see myself producing more of my own music. I also see myself re-opening my high school that was closed a few years ago.

IAA:  How can your fans contact you and access your music?
