IAA SPOTLIGHT: GET TO KNOW – JILLANATE – WISCONSIN’S HOTTEST STAR!

21
1945

IAA:  What is your music background?

JILLANATE:  I started recording in a closet with a karaoke machine and a microphone attached to a hanger at the age of 12 with my older brother R.I.P. Eugene ”Gino” Walker. He basically taught me everything about making music. We recorded 5 tracks together on the cassette tape putting 2 pieces of tissue in the holes to record. He taught me how to be creative and original with everything I do. My brother Gino was working on a couple of tracks prior to him being killed. I picked up where he left off by buying a laptop and started recording in my room. The past 3 years, I have studied how to mix, master, and produce.  

     

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

JILLANATE:  I love writing and recording music. I feel that I have a positive message for the world to hear.

IAA:What are your songs about?

JILLANATE:My songs are about my life and my feelings. I write about my experiences in the streets and how blessed I was to be able to finish my education. I write about how you can turn a horrible situation into a positive one by having faith in yourself.  

 

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

JILLANATE:  50 Cent, Twista, Do or Die, Crucial Conflict, Mobb Deep, Snoop, Scarface, and Papoose.

 

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

JILLANATE:  Original, something others across the world can relate to. My music is about being positive and learning from my mistakes.

 

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artists?

JILLANATE:  I am original and am always myself. I will not be what others want me to be.

 

IAA:  Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in your music career and how did you overcome?

JILLANATE:  The hardest challenge for me is writing my music and thinking about my brother. I begin and stop, start crying and start thinking about him. Sometimes it will be so hard for me to focus on finishing that song that I say forget it, I’ll get to it later. When I don’t know how to deal with everything, I get into his mind and wonder what he would do. I will go on from there and complete it. He may not be with me physically, but spiritually he is here with me still. That’s how I get the job done.

 

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

JILLANATE:  My mixtape is called “Juristic Measures” and I am working on  booking shows in the Arizona area.

 

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

JILLANATE:  My career goal is to finish with my master’s degree in business. I am currently working on my associate degree in business.  10 years from now, I will be  running my own business and being successful at whatever I do.  I work very hard because one day I would love to own my own studio.

 

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