Born in Midland Heights baby, Arkansas raised. When you listen to my music and you just can’t put a pin on my accent that’s because I’ve been all over. From the Hip Hop Is Dead Tour with the infamous NAS, Queen Bridges Finest, to singles dropped with No Limits own “Fiend” (now known as Mr. SL Jones). This is for y’all that don’t understand how an individual of my character is created, and why I have the purpose of being the real life representative, or should I say Ambassador for this intriguing understanding of what we call (The Izm)! I bring a wide range of style and versatility, which makes it’s easy to give the squares something they can bob their heads to. While also delivering that raw and uncut game that only selective gentlemen and ladies with a true understanding for this shit that they can relate to.
IAA: What is your music background?
SUCCEED: I’ve been doing music since I was 12. I’ve toured with NAS, JUNGLE, JOHNNY KASH (FREESTYLE FRIDAY BET BATTLE RAP 7 WEEK CHAMP) CURRENSY, BIG KRIT, SMOKE DZA, AND THE ‘08 SOURCE MAG TOUR HAWII SPRING BREAK BASH. I’m a writer and a performer. Everything I put on paper is my own material. I started writing music from poetry writing as a kid.
IAA: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
SUCCEED: Music is my life, I don’t write music, I write my life on a pad. There’s a huge difference in being an entertainer and being a real life street journalist. I live and report the daily that goes on in this world inside the world we live in. MY WORDS AND MUSIC is what the people in my realm want to hear, have to hear, and have been dying to receive. It’s my job to give the world what they want, that’s my reason for breathing oxygen, and it’s my purpose for living.
IAA: What are your songs about?
SUCCEED: I write about life, about the women in my life, and about the lifestyle that I’ve been blessed to be a part of. It’s very easy to know what my music is about once you have the visual and hear the noise. I’m not a dope boy or a gangsta so you won’t hear me speak on it unless it’s in 3rd person since I do know the real world people.
IAA: Who is your fan base directed towards?
SUCCEED: Pimps, Hustlers, Fly cats and Fly chicks. The weed smokers and the pill poppers, the Bentley riders and the Louis Vuitton buyers. If it isn’t fly then it isn’t me. If you aren’t living life how you want to you might not enjoy my music. MUSIC FOR THE COLLEGE OF BOSSES.
IAA: Who are your musical influences?
SUCCEED: I grew up listening to Nas, Tupac, Hov, Method Man, 8-Ball & MJG, and as I got older TI, JEEZY, WALE, & my man Currensy the Hot Spitta.
IAA: How would you describe your music to people?
SUCCEED: Amazing, a real intellectual individual who’s word play is amazing, if I write about it then I’ve done it or was right there when it was going down.
IAA: What makes you stand out from other artists?
SUCCEED: The lane that I am in, my whole life revolves around women, actually white women, and weed. If a bitch didn’t buy it then I don’t have it. The world hasn’t seen a cat like me; this isn’t camera pimpin on paper. It goes down and I bring it out in an amazing way!
IAA: What are some upcoming projects, you are currently working on?
SUCCEED: My first one dropping is titled: “VANILLA CITY 3Ws (White, Women, & Weed)” and I’m also working on another album called “Captain America”, based off of the movie that just dropped. I will also be going overseas to shoot a few videos and do a mix tape called “London Takeover”
IAA: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
SUCCEED: I see myself with at least 2 Grammy’s working on my 3rd. I WILL BE KNOWN BY THE WORLD FOR MY MUSIC, I WILL BE EVERYTHING EVERYONE IN THE INDUSTRY IS LUSTING FOR. I AM THAT DUDE!
IAA: How can your fans access your music and contact you?
SUCCEED: Every major social network
& also my own personal website
