IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: I’m from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: I feel in love with hip-hop at about age, around that same time is when I started writing. The song that I remember falling in love with the most though was “Love Me” by Eminem Ft. Obie Trice and 50 cent. I didn’t understand what they were talking about back then but as I got older, going back and hearing it, I’m still catching some of the lines. It was like they were telling me a story, like I was learning something new.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: Because I have something to say, I have a message to get across. I dropped 3 albums in 2014 just because I felt like it, just because I had something on my mind and wanted to other people to hear it.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: I make songs based on how I’m feeling on that day. If I’m mad it’ll be an aggressive diss track or a “this is how I’m doing” track. If I’m happy I just write what’s on my mind, it could be about a relationship or current events, politics, anything that I feel the need to talk about.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who is your fan base directed towards?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: The people that love real hip-hop. I’m not talking about the people that think Bobby Shmurda is a hip-hop artist. But the people who still think that lyrics and message’s in music is important.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: Man, I could go all day to be honest. Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, Nas, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lloyd Banks, and most importantly, 50 Cent. If I had never heard 50 I would have never gathered such a love for hardcore and aggressive Hip Hop.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: It’s real. I don’t talk about things a haven’t lived. I haven’t rapped about how I bust guns or about how I turn up in the club. I talk about how I feel, I talk about reality, and I attempt to make you realize that what you’ve heard from other artist are lies. I want to be remembered, I need success and that shows in my music
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: I have my own style, its authentic, and its original. No I don’t have a dance or something jumping in the clubs, but if you listen close enough, you may learn a thing or two. Soulja boy, Hurricane Chris, Dem Franchise Boyz, DJ Unk, Bobby Shmurda, and GS Boys all have something in common; they all have a dance, and won’t be relevant in 10 Years. I’m giving you a lesson, I’m schooling my generation through my music while at the same time telling you more about me, that’s why I will be around 10 years from now.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: I’m currently working on my 4th album “With Love From S1 2” this is will be my best album yet. I have 2 more albums to release after that because I have so much music recorded I need to do something with it.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
THE SYMBOLIC ONE: I own my own entertainment company called Beautiful Humanity Incorporated, it’s an independent record label, modeling agency, we have a clothing line and we have our own line of headphones. So I plan on being a vet hip-hop artist who has traveled the world, sold millions of copies and have put out about 6 albums, along with being a smarter and more successful businessman.
