Exclusive interview


Hip-Hop artist, Christian!

Did you grow up in Massachusetts?
Yeah, I’ve always lived in Massachusetts. I was born at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro. I’ve lived in Attleboro ever since. Although I hope to be moving soon. 
At what age did you show an interest in music? 
I’ve loved music ever since I was little. I would dance, tap along to songs, and sing along as well. I did some drum lessons when I was younger because my father played the drums, but I only did it for like a year. Then I learned a bit of guitar, but when I was around 12, I found hip-hop and I instantly fell in love with it. I would spend hours playing video games and rapping along with my favorite songs. In a way, I was practicing without even knowing it. 
Do you produce your own music, or do you work with outside producers? 
So, the beats I use I tend to buy them online. I browse around until I hear something I like, then I just start writing. I write all my music and I love it. I’ve only made 2 beats on my own. But I have thought about starting to make some more stuff on my own. For production of the songs, I have an engineer at the studio I go to called Red13. His name is Dom and he’s is great at what he does. 
Do you ever write for other artists? 
Not often, no, I once helped one of my friend’s with lyrics a bit. But I like to keep the stuff I write for my self usually. 
Have you done a lot of live shows in the past? 
Unfortunately, no, I was set to have my first couple of live shows last year, but then COVID came around. Lord willing there will be some in the future. 
Have you ever thought of crossing over into other genres? 
Yes, actually. I have a lot of songs I have written and they are for future albums. There are a bunch of different styles I enjoy. Whatever the Lord puts in my heart to write, I write. 
Who in music inspires you? 
There are a lot of people. When I was a younger it was a lot of Michael Jackson and 3 Days Grace. But in the last 5 years, it’s been people like Eminem, who was the first rapper I heard. Also J.Cole, Logic, Hop-Sin and Big Sean. Recently, I’ve drawn inspiration from artists like NF, KB, and Marcus Rodgers. 
How was 2020 career wise for your music? 
It was a lot of growing. I wrote a lot of music. Tried different styles. I got comfortable with what I do, and it shows on my new stuff. The last year was just a lot of growing for me, in pretty much every aspect. I came out of a tough season in my life as both of my parents got cancer in 2016 and my dad passed away in 2018. I took a lot of that pain and used it to help me grow in my music. 
Are you working on anything new lately? 
Yes, actually, I have an album that I am working on. It’s called ME. It’s the best stuff I’ve recorded up to date and I’m really excited to put it out there. It shouldn’t be much longer. 
What are your plans for the rest of the year? 
Get the album out. And I’m gonna push it as much as I can. Try and get it out to the world for people to hear. It’s my story, it’s what I’ve been through, it’s what I believe, it’s me.
