FLYAH INTERVIEW WITH J - Props





J-Props, how long have you been working on music?

I started making beats in 2009, which I don’t do anymore,  and I started rapping in 2011, in which I did not get serious about until this year.

 

 

 

What was it like coming up as a kid in Pittsburgh?

Nothing out of the ordinary. I spent most of my days riding a bicycle, playing video games and engaging in sports at the playground. However, childhood was very tough since I was picked on to extreme levels as a kid.

  

 

I understand you were good at sports, would you say that the music industry is like a verbal version of sports?

 

No. Sports is all about competition. Many artists are not what I would say competing, but trying to get their message out to the world as they hope for success of other artists, along with their own success.

 

 

Have you ever wished to collaborate with any major stars?  Who is your current favorite artist?

 

Yes. Actually, I have a song featuring Killah Priest, on a beat I produced, and a song featuring Rick Ross & Gucci Mane, which on that one, the beat was produced by Maybach Music. Both artist featured tracks were made possible by Anno Domini.


My current favorite artist is Tech N9ne.

 

What was your influence to become a Hip Hop artist?

Writing poetry definitely pushed me to develop my art of music. Combining unique rhyme schemes with the use of poetry and discussion of real life experiences, this is my story.

 

 

So tell us about your music, what projects are you currently working on?

There is never just one set project I am working on at any given time. Creating music is a constant work in progress for me, but I am currently aiming at building a bigger audience.

 

 

What school did you go to for business? 

Bradford Business School.

It was a great experience meeting people with many different backgrounds. I began the development of my marketing skills, enhanced my communication skills to a great degree, and got the chance to create electronic & physical graphic design portfolios.

 

 

Is there any other genre of music you're interested in besides Hip Hop?

Although I am considered a hip hop artist, my music also crosses a variety of other genres in forms of the lyrics I write, in addition to the music itself. My songs touch many forms of Rock, some parts of Alternative, R&B, Soundtrack, even some metal here and there.

 

 

So tell us about your song "Love N Fame", what was the direction and concept for your current project?

I wanted to point out the general aspects of daily life all the way down to the ins and outs of falling in love, and combining that with some discussion of the development of a music career.

 

 

Are there any last remarks?

For any artists out there, go live your dream and never let anyone tell you that it is not possible.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
