Rapper, Singer,Beat-maker and Songwriter, this interview with Lil Xtra a creative soundcloud artist.
Hi , so let’s start ! Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Atlanta.
What inspires you to make music?
Life in general, specifically the little bad parts in the good things, or the little good parts in the bad. I want to help people with my music so I always try to make sure what I say means something.
How did you find your style?
Finding my style took a long time. I used to play in rock bands and it took quite some time to figure out how to blend my rock sensibilities with my rap ones. It took a lot of time and practice. I like catchy songs with good lyrics, so I stopped overthinking it and started doing my thing.
Do you plan any collaboration in the near future ?
I just collabed with Demxtia and Kado produced my entire upcoming album!
Does any record label attracts you?
I’m fully independent for now.
Awesome , btw do you make your own beats ?
I write the guitar parts for my custom beats, and occasionally I’ll do all the production. I also work with Sorrow Bringer and Erikveins pretty often.
Okay , how much time do you spend on writing lyrics?
I spend a LOT of time on my lyrics but once i have an idea I tend to an entire verse or hook at a time to keep my train of thought straight. I also like writing lyrics walking around outside with headphones in. Puts me in the zone for some reason.
Are you going to make a new music video?
I also like the quality of your tracks,Do yo have your own studio?
I have a makeshift studio i’ve built up over the years. Microphone, Guitar equipment, Monitors and a Sub for mixing. It’s all pretty makeshift though.
Three best rappers in your opinion ? And why their music better than others?
I love Zotiyac, Mac Miller, and Earl Sweatshirt for different reasons.
What do you want to say to your fans?
I want to say thank you so much for listening, I was so close to quitting this before people started paying attention. I love you all and I can’t wait to experience this with all of you. And a super special thank you to anyone who’s ever shown my music to a friend <3.
