IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
UNDEFINED: I was born in Stockton, California but I currently live in South Lake Tahoe, California.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
UNDEFINED: Since I was young I was always trying to play different instruments whenever I saw them. Mostly the piano and drums. My sister and I made band when we were in elementary school and we would write songs and perform them for our parents and family friends. I also played the trombone for six years. When i was about twelve years old is when I really started listening to rap. When i was thirteen is when I first decided to write and try to record songs. Since then, I’ve just continued working towards polishing and perfecting the art of rap and poetry which is where I plan to keep my focuses.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
UNDEFINED: My songs range from a variety of different topics. Some tracks will be about personal experiences I’ve been through and struggles I feel people can relate to but I also can do fun tracks you can dance to, grimey tracks that are just bars on top of bars, love songs, anything.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your favorite song to perform and why?
UNDEFINED: My favorite song to perform would probably be “All Nighter” which is a single I dropped a while back off my Album “Rookie of the Year”. I like it because that’s the one most people are familiar with and the crowd always seems to get more into that song and to me that’s the fun part of music. There’s no better feeling than when people are feeling something you created. I will probably have a new favorite song to perform when I drop my whole project though.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What has surprised you the most in the pursuit of a career in music?
UNDEFINED: The most surprising thing I have encountered and continue to encounter is my own talent. When people tell me how much they feel my products or they tell me their opinion on how talented I am, I’m always surprised that I had that effect on someone. I look at other local artists who, in my opinion, are better than me without a doubt but I keep up with them if not exceed them with my numbers or the opportunities I’m offered based off of my skill level.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?
UNDEFINED: My influences are every artist I listen to. I listen to all sorts of artists such as Chance the Rapper, Vince Staples, Frank Ocean, Vic Mensa, Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Mellowhype, Mike G, Audio Push, G-Eazy, Eminem, Tech N9ne, Ces Cru, Krizz Kaliko, and Futuristic but my favorite artists are local artists. If you check my playlist seventy-five percent of my music is local music. Some local artists I listen to besides the members of my label are Logic One, Teebeetrippin, Charlie Muscle, Steven James, Akbadd, Low, Superhero Life, and The Kid Bre.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?
UNDEFINED: My music is unpredictable. You will never know what I’m going to come out with next. You can’t guess the content, you cant guess the rhythm, the length, anything. I always switch up what I’m doing. I give the listeners something new and different every time. I keep them anxious and on their toes.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
UNDEFINED: I think my diversity sets me apart from other artists. I don’t have just one style that I’m stuck in. I can do almost any style. I can hop on a R&B track, I can do grimey street bars, I can do dance music with an upbeat tempo. I can chop, I can rap slower. Also, all my verses have a different rhyming/flowing pattern. I always try to switch up my flow with every verse I do. I don’t want people to be able to put me in a box and define me or my music or even my style. I do whatever I feel like doing at that moment.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What would you like to see changed in today’s music industry?
UNDEFINED: I wish the industry would give more artists props and be more diverse. The industry is always circling around a few artists and that’s it. They promote that handful of artists as much as possible and try to milk as much as possible out of them. I’d prefer if they showcased a wider variety of artists and promote good music instead of “good artists.” Teambackpack showcases what I’m talking about. They have thousands upon thousands of members under their name and they promote and support each artist just as much as the next. That’s how it should be in my opinion. Thousands of artist being main stream instead of having just 10-20 main artists such as Drake, Kendrick, J. Cole, Future, etc.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects that you are currently working on?
UNDEFINED: I’m currently in the final stages of my debut album, “Rookie of the Year” which is dropping New Years. I am also finishing up a joint mixtape I’m releasing with Teebeetrippin called “Couch Sessions.”
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
UNDEFINED: My goal is to be able to make a living off of making music and making music that I love and hopefully others love too. That’s my dream. My job actually being something I love to do. I don’t care if it’s millions of dollars or thousands of dollars. As long as I make enough off of my music to support myself, I’m happy. That’s what I strive for everyday
