Know Self Is A Valid Standout For Pioneering His Musical Masterpiece Diverting Him Into A Viral Sensation

Know Self sounds like a valid standout for pioneering his musical masterpiece, diverting him into a viral sensation in a time when music can seem overcrowded, and everyone is always looking for super dope music to take in. To stand out as an artist, you must have a presence, commanding energy to you that everyone knows you’re the person they came to hear as soon as you speak on a track. That is a significant factor in standing out, and that’s what Known Self is all about.

This week we talked with Know Self, who was kind enough to share his journey through the music scenes. Who is Know Self? Sounds unfamiliar? How does he intend to carve a mark with his music? Check out the interview below and let us know your views in the comment section below.

Let’s start by introducing ourselves. You know the basics, like name, age, and where you’re from, as much or little as you’re comfortable sharing.

Know Self: My name is Jereme, and my stage name is Know Self. 

I’m 30 years old, was born in Burbank, California, and moved to Denver, Colorado, when I was 2. 

 

What’s the best advice you ever received concerning music?

Know Self: The best advice I’ve received is persistence is the key to success.

 

What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now?

Know Self: I would not have taken all the no’s so personally If I knew then what I know now. 

What is still your biggest challenge?

Know Self: My biggest challenge today is getting my music to a more expanded audience. 

 

What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?

Know Self: When things get tough, I check out of the industry and go back to writing mode. Writing is my therapy to keep going in life and music.

 

If you could open a show for any artist, who would it be?

Know Self: I’d like to open for Brother Ali and go on tour with him if I could open for anyone. 

 

Please talk me through your creative process.

Know Self: I typically always write in my car in a beautiful nature spot. I park and listen to the beat repeatedly until something comes in. Sometimes I ask the higher power what to write about and will get inspiration quickly after that. If I get blocked, I move energy, get out of my car, and go for a walk. The rhymes usually begin to flow again at this point. I always write, then re-write and edit. I have multiple drafts typically. 

How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations?

Know Self: I find returning to “self” is the best way to maneuver stressful situations. Yoga, working out, getting in nature, and meditation are how I get back to balance when stress is high. I work, make music, and take care of a family now. It’s a lot to maintain. 

 

What are you focusing your time on now?

Know Self: I just finished an album that will be releasing 11/11/22 called R.I.P. (Replenishing Inspiration Proper) 

I plan to play shows, and I have a baby girl on the way, due in February, which will fill my time. 

How do you currently feel about the state of “Your genre” in general?

Know Self: I feel like the hip-hop genre requires help, it’s lost a lot of its original elements, and my goal has always been to “bring it back,” interweaving conscious, heart-centered hip-hop into the mainstream.

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”.
