Artist Spotlight


Hello Royal Rashad
, Thanks for coming to Honk Magazine to talk about your career.

Tell us a little more about when you first got into music?

I got into music at an early age, 13 I believe. I remember hearing one of my cousins freestyle and I was like “yo how do you do that… just brainstorm rhymes on the fly?” He said “man you just flow with the beat and say what’s on your mind” then he started beating on the porch and told me to try.. that’s when history started.


If you could describe your sound/style in one word, what would it be and why? 

Sleek. My wordplay is sharp and my cadence is smooth

What would you say to any aspiring recording artists who look up to your work? 

Just be yourself and do you and Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do what you’re passionate about. 


What quote or mantra do you live by?

Whenever things go left or go wrong I call it a Minor setback… for a major comeback. And I always bounce back.

What is your hobby outside of music?

In my free time I like to play video games, it allows me to miss and reminisce  my first love… sports


Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Continuing the path that God has set out for me, which is to evolve and grow with my talents 


Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

This is what you love to do, just have fun with it.

Do you have anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you? 

Yes I always have hot new music on deck that I can’t wait for the world to hear. Stay tuned


What is the inspiration behind your latest song? 

Playa Made. The beat really. It just felt like something I could ride and listen to with the windows down cruising on a beautiful day.
