Hey Roulette, Can you tell our readers about what really inspired you to write music?
Roulette – What inspired me to write my music is that I wanted to tell people about my life and things that I experience. I feel the music is one of the true forms of art that may still remain for people to be truly honest about themselves and about what may be going on and going through in their lives. I decided to use a musical platform to tell my story and to get a lot of things off my chest and out of my mind to put it out there into the world. Being real with people and honest is important to me. I always say I’m just a God-fearing man that loves his family and pays his taxes.
When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
Roulette – At first, me doing music and entertainment was more or less me trying to occupy my time and get a lot of things out of my mind and to kind of run away from my problems. I believe I decided to do things full-time as a career when I was told by my ex-wife that I shouldn’t waste my time doing it and then I’m not good at it. Music actually helps me to comfort a lot of problems in my life and get a lot of negative people out of my life.
Tell us what is so unique about you and your music?
Roulette – I believe my music is unique and it is also different because my music tells my life which is true to me and things that are going on. I also quote the Bible in my music and a lot of artists don’t do that. Also, I am true to who I am, myself, my brand, and my family, because everything I do I put God first and my family second.
Can you tell us about your latest releases and what inspired you to create them?
Roulette – My Music tells my life and things that I experience in life so my latest release “Dey Say” is about not caring what people say about you because people are always gonna talk about you whether they know the truth or not. My other release “Keep It 2” is about keeping things in a small circle with a small team of people you trust.
Can you give us a brief insight into your upcoming projects?
Roulette – My upcoming project is really focused on giving back to the community and taking care of the kids in the community.
What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?
Roulette – I believe that anything that you’re doing you need to always trust your instincts and trust what your gut is telling you. It is very important to know the difference between someone being there for you to help you and someone being there for you so that they can just benefit from you. Also believe in your vision, yourself, and what you want to accomplish.
What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) that you are passionate about?
Roulette – I’m an actor, comedian, model, and entrepreneur. So I’m usually working on other projects but still find time to do music.
Any last piece of advice for those artists who just started making music?
Roulette – Always believe in yourself and don’t quit no matter how hard it gets.
How can our readers follow you online?

You can also find me at officiallyroulette.com and that will have the links to all of my social media accounts, my music, my link tree, my businesses, and everything I have going on in the entertainment industry.
Ki Storii shines on new single, “Shawty Lo” (ft. Cheek the Profit)
Bronx artist Ki Storii came onto our radar for her recent single, “Shawty Lo”, which features fellow Renaissance Music member Cheek the Profit of New Jersey. An electrifying, catchy single that could rattle any track or provide an apt soundtrack to any night of clubbing and partying, “Shawty Lo”‘s infectious bounce and sharply-crafted vocals demand the listener’s attention immediately. Containing raw, hard-hitting percussion, catchy key riffs, and heavy 808s, “Shawty Lo” is a powerful, and simultaneously sensual, song that provides truly engaging energy.
Talking about “Shawty Lo”, Ki Storii says, “Shawty Lo is about being the life of the party and how the guys love being around her.” This quote rings true from the opening remarks where she states “m*f*ckers out here asking for an only fans page… HA”.
