I am grateful to all the people I am lucky enough to have worked with so far and am excited for whatever comes next! From day one, the plan has been to be my own artist.

HONK: What do you like most about being a music artist?
Paige Corwin: I firmly believe that music unites people from all walks of life, no matter their differences, and that, for sure, is a beautiful thing!

Connecting with an audience is the best feeling in the world, and I have met so many incredible people along the way.
HONK: What projects do you have coming up? Can you give us any info on them?
Paige Corwin: I am working on an EP consisting of six tracks, including the intro. Each record will first be released as a single, followed by a music video!

Paige Corwin: Don’t let the long, winding path to success get you down. Stay the course, do not deviate, and believe your hard work will eventually pay off.

HONK: How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations?
Paige Corwin: I use the calendar on my phone to set reminders which usually avoids scheduling issues, but when I feel overwhelmed, I take hot yoga classes. Yoga calms me down, clears my head, and grounds me again.

Swizz Beatz Thinks DMX Sent Scar Lip To Him
The producer thinks the late rapper had something to do with him taking the NY based rapper under his wing.
Swizz Beatz is having some interesting encounters with the spirit of DMX recently. During an interview with The Breakfast Club last month, Swizz recounted a powerful dream he had. In it, he felt the presence of his late friend and iconic rapper. Prior to sharing this extraordinary experience, Swizz expressed that it didn’t feel like DMX was truly gone, but rather just temporarily absent. He described feeling a sense that the rapper was somewhere relaxed and at ease. However, when significant anniversaries related to the DMX approach, Swizz is struck with a profound realization of his friend’s physical absence.
Swizz went on to describe his dream about the late rapper. “But the thing that make me feel easy about it is he came to me,” he continued. “I seen him in my dream. He came to me. And this was, like, super quick too. And he let me know he was good. I’m the person that be like, ‘He ain’t come to see you, what you talkin’ about?’ I seen him. I felt him.” However, that isn’t the only thing that DMX is doing for Swizz Beatz. In fact, he says he feels like the late icon sent up-and-coming rapper Scar Lip to him.
Swizz Thinks Scar Lip Has The Same Great Heart As DMX
According to Swizz Beatz, he believes that DMX played a spiritual role in connecting him with Scar Lip. The rapper is an emerging star out of New York. Recently, Swizz has taken on the role of mentor for the young artist. During an interview with Audacy’s Hip-Hop Made, the renowned “Ruff Ryders Anthem” producer shared that the connection to Scar Lip was initiated by the spirit of DMX. Apparently, DMX’s fiancée Desiree Lindstrom urged him to collaborate with the new, talented artist from the Bronx.
“I honestly feel like DMX sent Scar Lip my way because she’s too much of his energy,” Swizz said. “Like I’ve never seen an artist that just naturally have what I know DMX have. And they two different artists, two different levels, yes. But I’m not talking about that. You know, like, that sister’s been through a lot, like Dog been through a lot. That sister, you know, is when you sit with her, she’s amazing and have a great heart the same way X had a great heart.” What do you think about Swizz’s words on Scar Lip and DMX sending her to him?

With a big release coming up on May 19th, Emika is all geared up to bring her best self and leave a lasting impression on her listeners.
Honk: Let’s kick things off by getting to know each other a bit better. Tell us your name, age, and where you’re from—as much or as little as you’re comfortable sharing.
Emika: My name is Emika Love, and I am 19 years old. I am from Sacramento, California.
Honk: We all need good advice from time to time. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received about music?
Emika: The best advice I got from someone about music was to never stop and to keep pushing my music. One song might not be your favorite, but to someone else, it will be. It’s all about preference. The advice I would give someone is to be unapologetically yourself. It is essential to reach your highest potential!
Honk: If you could go back in time, what would you do differently based on what you know now?
Emika: If I could go back in time, I wouldn’t change anything. Everything I do, I stand by. I never have regrets, nor do I ever feel guilty. This is me, and every step and era I had and made was to make me have all the knowledge I have now. I am very blessed, honored, and thankful for everything and everyone.
Honk: We all face challenges, but what’s your biggest one yet?
Emika: My biggest challenge is that I love challenges.
Honk: What keeps you motivated and moving forward when things get tough in the music industry?
Emika: The thing that keeps me motivated is that I know where there’s good, there’s bad, and where there is bad, there’s good. Life only gets more complex, but you get stronger. Being able to do what I love is always the solution. So no matter how tough they are, diamonds need pressure. Nothing can take away from my music and motivation because, in the end, I’m doing it for myself and my people. There are going to be challenges, but bring them on.
Honk: If you had the chance to open a show for any artist, who would it be and why?
Emika: If I had the chance to open a show for any artist, it would be Taylor Swift. She brings such a warm, genuine atmosphere to the stage. Very feminine and whimsical energy, and just an all-around powerful, groovy tone. I believe we would bring an undeniable vibration to the stage.
Honk: Take us through your creative process. How do you come up with your excellent work?
Emika: My creative process is definitely all over the place and comes in so many forms. I usually start off with the visual side of things. So I will create a story visual in my head and say, “Now let’s tell the story. The visual part comes with me being a director, so it really sparks my creative process. Once I come up with the story, it’s time to tell it. I like to sit in the sink in my bathroom, look in the mirror, and sing melodies until I come up with the words. There will also be times where I will have a conversation with someone or read or hear about something that sparks it up as well. Once I come up with all of that, then the wardrobe and makeup come in to finish off the story.
Honk: We all struggle with productivity and scheduling at times. How do you tackle these issues and stay on top of things?
Emika: Productivity I don’t struggle with productivity, but there are times when I get scheduled for something, and the dates and times collide. I tackle this based on the cause. What is the job for? Is it for a good cause? Am I making an impact in others lives? It all depends on what is more effective for not just me but for others.
Honk: What are you currently focusing your time and energy on?
Emika: I am currently focusing on how to help others and have a positive impact on them. It is imperative to me that I leave a mark, add to people’s lives, and help them overcome some obstacles. I do that, whether it is to talk to them in person or through my music. I am also focusing on my music. I have a big release coming out on May 19th that has a message that people need to hear. That being the case, it is a project that holds a lot of weight in my heart. So I’m super focused on that and, all around, being the best Emika Amber Love.
