IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What city and state are you from?

REDHEAD MAYNE:  I’m from the small city of Hopewell located in the state of Virginia. I will be the first artist to make it in the industry out of my city- they know I got us.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What is your music background?

REDHEAD MAYNE:  My music background is fairly Hip Hop and R&B. Despite my young age I grew up on artists like Jay-Z, Nas, Beanie Siegel, Jadakiss and much more. Without the background of music that I have I don’t believe that I would be able to obtain such great success and be the great artist that I am today.

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

REDHEAD MAYNE:  I want to record and release my own music not only because I think that’s what every rapper should be taking part in but because I believe that it shows individuality and separates you from other artists. It depicts your original sound.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What are your songs about?

REDHEAD MAYNE:  My songs are about real life experiences (good and bad) that I am going through or have gone through. I tell my story because I know that if I speak about real events then people will have no other choice but to relate. I believe that I am the epitome of what real music is all about.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

REDHEAD MAYNE:  My fan base is not directed towards a certain group of people because I think that my versatility will allow people of all ages to vibe to what I put out on display.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  Who are your musical influences?

REDHEAD MAYNE:  My musical influences are Jay Z, T.I, J.Cole, and my favorite rapper Fabolous. They have made great achievements and they give you that good feel of real rap on their records. I would say Jay, Fab, and T.I. have the greatest achievement of all time and that’s longevity; to be in the game for a long period of time and still be relevant is not any easy task but it is a task that I would love to surpass.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  How would you describe your music to people?

REDHEAD MAYNE:  I would describe my music as just REAL. There’s no other way to explain it. Whatever I say has a story behind it and I know that that is what people want to hear; the real coming through their speakers.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What makes you stand out from other artists?

REDHEAD MAYNE:  Honestly I harp on this a lot but my versatility is what makes me stand out from other artists as well as my hunger and my consistency. I have music for every occasion and I think that’s a skill most artists do not obtain. Some can only have one lane of music and be stuck with the same sound.

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

REDHEAD MAYNE:  I am currently working on more visuals and my highly anticipated EP entitled “I.O.G.B” (It Only Gets Better). I just finished releasing a mixtape titled “I’m Here Now’. The direct link to check that out is: iamredhead.bandcamp.com. I have more things in the works that aren’t set in stone yet but I guarantee that anything I do will only help me further my career and please my fans.

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

REDHEAD MAYNE:  My career goal is to be one of the greatest rappers to be mentioned with other big named artists. I want to leave my mark and change hip hop with my talent. I want to be the kid that when people hear of me or see me they say “If it wasn’t for him the game wouldn’t be how great it is today”. In 10 years I see myself completing these career goals, enough said.
