IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: The city I reside in is my favorite place since the weather is always amazing and sunny. We barely get rain, but we’re always in a drought. It’s none other than San Diego, California. I love the beach and love the girls.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: The music background I’m in is mainly Hip-Hop/Rap or vise versa however you want to put it. I chose this background for the simple fact I’m good at it and I can’t sing at the moment but who knows maybe in the future. I know a lot of people are getting into this genre, but none of them sound like me.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: My songs are mainly about my life and what goes on in it. A few of them are about what I want in the future and such. I always mention a Lamborghini in most of my songs for the simple fact you’re supposed to talk about what you want. I rarely make love songs they seem over done these days, like pretty much you turn on the radio and that’s all I hear out here in San Diego, California.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your favorite song to perform and why?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: A couple favorite songs to perform are “Diamonds”. Man this song is super dope. It’s pretty much saying that a girl really doesn’t care about much other than materialistic things in life. I made it short and used diamonds, one of my favorites for sure. Another one of my favorites is “Run My Town”. This song is fire in my opinion. Last show I did had everyone rocking to it, and it’s extremely catchy.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What has surprised you the most in the pursuit of a career in music?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: To be honest the thing that surprises me the most is the simple fact no matter how great your songs are the people who know you barely spread any word about your music or show love. I tell a bunch of people daily to check me out, and they do. They say it’s good but never I mean never go out of their way to share on their social media pages or any of that. In my head I’m like you should be excited to know me on a personal level. Especially for when that time comes and I’m chilling on BET with your current favorite rapper that you don’t know personally and you know me. It is comedy.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: I look up to a lot of musicians that have done great things. To name a few is hard, but I will try. Jay Z has been dope for years and he kills it when it comes to lyrical talent. If I ever had the chance to do a song with him, it would be a definite yes. Kanye West is dope with the verses and production. I’ve loved him since my older brother showed me his album. Speaking of older brother he used to rap and is another reason I got into it. There is a bunch of musicians in other genres that I also look up to, like Justin Bieber. A lot of people used to make fun of me. But that album with “Boyfriend” and “As Long As You Love Me” are super dope. I love it. Imagine Dragons I love that group. I’m really just a fan of music and have an open mind and ear when it comes to it something. I learned from my older brother.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: If I were to describe my music it would have to be mainly weird, random, dope, and sometimes funny. Now I know what you’re thinking how can that be? Well I make a variety of music and try to be different from everything else that’s out there in the realm of music. I have songs that can fit in party scenes and clubs. I have songs that you can play smoking with friends. I have songs you can just chill and vibe to. Then I have those experimental songs that make a lot of people look at me and be like that didn’t happen. My response is always it’s only entertainment.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: I try to stand out by making songs that are 100% different. Like I’ve said in my previous statement I like to experiment with songs for sure. I’m one of those rappers who really likes to know it all. I’ve took classes on music business. I’ve taught myself to mix and master pretty much all my music, I started to produce my own music. I’ve even picked up a camera to learn how to shoot photos and videos. Let me say it took a while to build each skill set, and I have to switch from producer mode to writer mode. I can’t just produce a track and write the same day.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What would you like to see changed in today’s music industry?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: The thing I would like to see changed in music today is more talent and substance. Before I get people mad let me explain. I live in San Diego, and the only thing I hear on the radio is pretty much techno or club music. Not bad, but hearing it all the time can be too much. I would like to see more singers/rappers going back into their own community to give a helping hand. Like I understand once you get the success you want you pretty much live it up, but go back and give a hand. Teach others the rules and strings so the time it took you to get there it takes someone else half or less time. I’ve put in so much time and money into my music. I’m still not at the point I want or need to be. I never had a mentor or anyone come give me a hand. I pretty much learned the ropes from trial and error and spending a lot of money.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects that you are currently working on?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: Not much I’m working on for any upcoming projects, but I do have an amazing album that is currently on my website for $12.99. A bit much yes, but let me just say for one I have personally won an award for this album. The plaque is currently on my wall. This album has plenty of great songs. I’m pretty sure any music lover will love a handful of songs. Once this album gets to the exact point I want it to be then I will work on the next project maybe in a year or two. It really depends, I might get bored and start a new project next week.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: My career goals are simple. Make it big, supply money for myself, and get my family up in here too. I really want to have my own record label and sign my own acts and performers. I currently have my own clothing line. I’m not really pushing it as I should be since I’m focusing on my music. I really want to teach others interested in music how to get further with less time and money. That’s a for sure thing. I don’t want them doing what I had to do unless I don’t like them, then they get false information.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How can your fans access your music and contact you?
J.F. MILLIONAIR: Pretty simple all my fans can either visit my website www.jfmillionair.com and that contains all of my social media where they can connect and contact me personally. They can also email me at email@example.com . I’m usually fast at responding unless I’m crazy busy and have a lot on my plate.
