At NowHipHop.com we are known for giving independant artists a chance. Today we feature a young man from Chattanooga, Tennessee. He has allot of music to share and a great story.
What is your background? Tell us where you grew up and
some information about your upbringing/experiences as a
As a kid I moved around a lot. I was born in Knoxville
Tennessee lived there for a year or two then moved to
Chattanooga for a year or two then I moved to Dayton
Tennessee where I lived until my fifth-grade year. I then
moved to Guntersville Alabama then onto Arab Alabama for
two years now I’m back in Chattanooga. Growing up my
mom was always a way for her work and seldom home. My
dad had an accident at work and was almost completely
bedridden but when he wasn’t in bed me and him were at
each other’s throat! All this turned me into a very
independent youth but it also began building anger inside of
me and I began lashing out. As I grew older the family
tension rose to the point of me moving out at 16.
At what moment did you know music was a part of your life
and what feelings did you have towards making an active
impact with your music?
In the sixth grade I realized music was going to be my life.
That year was when I lived in Guntersville. I spent my free
time at the rec center playing basketball. Most of my friends
were bloods and either getting locked up or killed. I decided
then most of my music would reflect unity and peace
instead of gang violence. I’m excited to see the impact I
have on the rap game, as well as the community in general.
What artists inspire/influence you and if you could
collaborate with any artist (alive or passed) who would it be
Two artists in particular were heavy aspirations of mine:
Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly. They inspired me because
they make songs about real issues and events going on.
They also show that no matter your background, rich or
poor, you can achieve your dreams and start a movement to
change lives with nothing more than a pen and pad.
What do you think about the current state of hip
In my opinion mainstream hip-hop is overrated. It’s built on
rappers who not only are incapable of original lyrics but lack
original sound as well. It’s quite disappointing.
Currently, what projects do you have in the works that you
are most excited about?
I’m currently working on a project called “The Anarchist’s
Cookbook.” I’m excited for it because I’ll be unleashing not
only conscious rhymes, but a whole array of lyrics that are
bound to cause wide contemplation of a hypocritical society
What are your short term career goals within the next 6-10
My goal for the next 10 months is to produce a business
plan, ground base for my career, and produce mixtape after
mixtape not only to gain recognition, but to also show my
What are your long term career goals for the next 2-5 years?
My long-term goal for the next five years is to build my skill,
and hopefully collaborate with artists similar to me, and
prove myself as a force to be reckoned with as a lyricist.
If you had one song out of the catalogue you have created
what would it be and why?
I’m still working on my catalog but hopefully all the songs
available are equally enjoyable.
To the person who had never heard of you what is it about
your music and story that you would tell them to entice
them to be a supporter?
To the people who don’t know me I would like to say I’m not
the same as these other “rappers.” I don’t claim to be
anything I’m not. I’ve seen hard times. I’ve never had a silver
spoon. I’ve worked for everything I’ve got and will have. I
don’t care for money or fame, I just want to make a change
in a hateful world.
If your music could be described in five words what would
those five words be?
Evolutionary. Truthful. Different. Conscious. Inspirational.
What do you bring to the game that is unique and different?
I’m a 17-year-old hippie that can flow any style beat, I can
freestyle on the spot at any time, and I’ll never sell out my
ideals and goals.
To the aspiring artist who is considering a career as a
musician what lessons or advice would you give them to
inspire them or uplift them in the journey?
All I can say to aspiring artists is never give up or sell out
your visions for a quick buck. No amount is ever worth
acting like something you’re not. There’s no quicker path to
hating your own sound then letting someone tell you what to
say or how to sound. Just keep vibing your own way man.
What are your social media profiles and where can people
purchase/download your music?
My Instagram is omnicide__goblinkking, my Twitter is
trippyhyppy, and my soundcloud is Mi5ta B.
What are your final words you would like to say to people
that you have left out?
The only thing I have left to say is I don’t care if my music is
something you personally like or not. It’s me and it’s real, so
before you judge based on my beats or sound give my flow
and lyrics a chance
