A. DIDDY: I’m from Charleston, South Carolina, where all the slaves were sold. They say we sound Jamaican, Haitian, or from some kind of island. But we are American; our ancestors are from Africa and were brought over here.
IAA: What is your music background?
A. DIDDY: I really don’t have any musical background as far as playing instruments, or being in any school bands. But my music background is hip-hop, oldies, R&B, and classics.
IAA: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
A. DIDDY: It is my art and craft. It’s a way to express myself to the world. Even though I am not rapping or singing, you can still feel it.
IAA: What are your songs about?
A. DIDDY: As a producer working with artists, I’ll have them tell a story because every situation is a story. Let me hear your half of it. A real situation, problem with experience and see how I can relate to you. So If I can relate to you, other people can relate to you.
IAA: Who is your fan base directed towards?
A. DIDDY: My fan base is toward the people who struggle. Struggle in life and mental state. I’m not from a place where everybody has money. In my city the most expensive stuff we have is the cheapest stuff in another city. So, I want to reach all of those other people who are going through the same thing, and show them you’re not the only one.
IAA: Who are your musical influences?
A. DIDDY: My musical influences are Soulja Slim, Boosie, Webbie, 8Ball & MJG, Pachino Dino, Killa Skip, Playa Fly, 36 Mafia, Gangsta Black, TA (Top Authority), Dayton Family, Yo Gotti, Tmac, Hot Boys, Jeezy, Gucci, and the list goes on. I grew up with old school from Patty, Temptations, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Isley, Brian McKnight, and more.
IAA: How would you describe your music to people?
A. DIDDY: I only can describe it as original. What everyone is lacking. Not saying everyone ain’t original. It’s just that everybody’s copycatting everything nowadays.
IAA: What makes you stand out from other artists?
A. DIDDY: What makes me stand out is me, my personality, and the way I carry myself. My life and my experiences. My sound is something that I create to be different so I can stand out. You can hear the difference.
IAA: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?
A. DIDDY: The project that I am working on now is Trap House Instrumentals. I just finished ADiddy Instrumental Vol. 1. You can check that out on datpiff. I got Big Lunny, Crime Boss, Back Boy Sav, and Juice. That’s the home team. They’re all dropping at separate times. You can check out all of the different projects on YouTube. Then there’s my bro, L.B, here in FL who I’m working with now. He has his mixtape and CD that he is working on. So, I have a lot of work lined up. And there is a lot of artists that I didn’t mention that I’m working with as well. So, I’m coming soon.
IAA: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
A. DIDDY: My career goal is to have a company that does music, film, games, and videos. Basically, a spot where you can come get tracks for anything or video for anything. I have a lot of goals in life so in 10 years I can see myself as a manager of a company. I can’t really say where I’m going to be because I’m always doing something different but it will be big, I can say that.
IAA: How can fans access your music and contact you?
A. DIDDY: You can access my music on my ReverbNation. I am getting a new site built for people to shop my beats.
