Hey Spitter, Thanks for coming to Honk Magazine to talk about your music career. Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
If I’m honest I started out listening to rappers like 2pac, Biggie, and Busta Rhymes while I was in school and if it was break time my friends and I would get together and I’d rap a biggie lyric, and at some point, I thought why not create something of my own, and so I did and I’ve never stopped.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started this career?
That would be when Tim Westwood invited me down to BBC 1Xtra to bless the airwaves and that happened by him coming across my MySpace by the profile which was back in 2008!
Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?
Omg, also back in 2008 I released my debut mixtape titled “ My Name is Spitter “ and I got a duplication company to make me 500 copies, remember these are the days streaming sites weren’t around, some not having a clue I went to pick them up thinking I could carry 500 CD-ROM all the way home, but the joke is I did but it killed me big time, but times have changed thank god.
What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now?
I’m currently working on a Bass song produced by Ghoslly who is from Denver/Phoenix which I’m featuring on and it’s something I’ve never done before I’ve also never collaborated with anyone from that part of the USA but I’m really feeling the beat so look out for that!
Who are some of the most interesting people you have interacted with? What was that like? Do you have any stories?
Tim Westwood has to be one of them, because he has been fully involved in music and also with a lot of talented musicians all over the world and he still manages to keep up with the time and stay relevant and Tim is such a cool person he makes you feel comfortable that you’d forget your chilling with famous DJ, so big up Westwood!!
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
My first tip would be, try to have your song written and mastered before going to the studio especially if you pay for studio time because you’ll waste your time and money
The second tip is always to make sure you get enough rest because if your like me late nights and early mornings can wear you down so rest is a must!
The last tip makes sure you eat because you can’t perform on an empty stomach, you gotta eat to have the energy to perform at your best.
You have been blessed with success in a career path that can be challenging. Do you have any words of advice for others who may want to embark on this career path, but seem daunted by the prospect of failure?
To be honest, I’d say master your craft inside out until you own it, never let anyone discourage you, and always believe in yourself otherwise if you don’t believe In yourself why should any else.
Can you share with our readers any self-care routines, practices, or treatments that you do to help your body, mind, or heart to thrive? Kindly share a story or an example for each.
I listen to a lot of music, mostly my genre Grime 24/7 and that is all I need.
What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.
I wish I was told the music industry was a cold place and I say this because if you are an upcoming artist and you don’t know anyone the chances of getting your song played on the radio is slim and that’s what it was like for me when I started but if you ignore it and keep pushing they will be the ones asking you to send them your songs!
Can you please give us your favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share how that was relevant to you in your life?
I like to use the quote “ You’ll never know if you don’t try “ and that stands for everything, it’s better than saying “ What if i…”.
None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?
I’m very grateful for my daughter, she gives me the drive and much more reason to take my career seriously, the day I became a dad my vision has never been so clear.
You are a person of enormous influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂
My movement would be called “ Good Hearted “ and we would only bring music, good vibes, and smiles, peace, and love.
We are very blessed that some of the biggest names in Business, VC funding, Sports, and Entertainment read this column. Is there a person in the world, or in the US with whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch, and why? He or she might see this. 🙂
Richard Branson, so I could ask him personally how has he achieved so much greatness in life.
