IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
THE BENZ AKA: I have been involved with music since the 6th grade. By the time I graduated, I had 10 instruments under my belt. My family was very religious, and I wasn’t allowed to listen to hip hop growing up. It wasn’t until I did a class project for black history month where I had to perform Biggie Small’s smash hit “Big Poppa” the audience reacted as if it was my song. Since then I’ve have been rapping and performing looking to make a career out of it.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
THE BENZ AKA: My songs are about life through my eyes, expressed through lyrics to capture my audience. My songs are diverse, but not on purpose. It’s just the way I view music that makes my music extremely different and unique.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your favorite song to perform and why?
THE BENZ AKA: Get Out My Lane (produced by Twan beat maker the hit maker). The reason I like performing this song is because of the energy I can feed to my fans and they give it back with much love. It’s a very crowd involving song.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What has surprised you the most in the pursuit of a career in music?
THE BENZ AKA: The love and hate that comes along with being a great artist business and talent wise. The love from the crowd/fans is unbelievable at times. I light up inside, and I want to give them more and more. The hate from people is the fuel to make more people hate which will lead to word of mouth promotion. Thanks to my fans both with me and against me.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
THE BENZ AKA: I have more to offer than today’s (Monkey see monkey do) rappers have to offer. 95% of today’s artists have nothing to talk about, no storylines, and no since of history about hip hop. I bring new emotions, new sound, new world order with my voice. I was born with my artist name. I believe I was destined to provide hip hop with nutrients through my music.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What would you like to see changed in today’s music industry?
THE BENZ AKA: The allowance of wack rappers and clowns with microphones. I want to see hip hop flourish back into the beautiful voluptuous women she use to be and not this t.h.o.t. waiting on the next rapper with a mic. Hip hop had standards. I would love to see her change back.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
THE BENZ AKA: My goals are to sell myself as a brand and product. This will allow me to make a profit and garner respect and relevance for myself. My goal is to leave an empire for my daughter “Taliyah Bins” so she doesn’t have to struggle in life as much I did. I see my self the CEO of a major record label. I see myself walking through my office looking at the gold and platinum records on the wall. I see a legacy of great music I’ve created for the masses for years to come.
