BLKRAW Interviewed by WWSMag
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I was born in Oakland, California. Raised in Tampa, Florida and El Centro, California. Growing up with music being the face of my household. I have always been surrounded by music. If it was not my mother playing her old school jams, (Smokey Robinson, Temptations) it was my big brother Sean listening and singing, Jodeci. After my near death experience and brother’s death I started my career. I began to record and write songs in 2003 and I have not look back.

Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
I would have to say one of the hardest challenges as an independent artist I had to face would be, being taking serious as an stable artist and booking shows in this ever so growing/changing music industry.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Computer crashing and losing a year plus of musical work, not really a set back yet a valuable lesson learned. Damn SMH haha
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Artist should never wait on anything or anyone, to get the ball rolling, with that being said, a artist must create opportunities for themselves.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
