Markie Interview

Featured artist: Markie Beats - Markie Interview


Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Markie Beats.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Markie Beats: I started out rapping, but it just wasn't my style, so i tried out producing music and that's what I love to do!

Don't make a song in a day, take your time to make your songs and perfect them.

- Markie Beats


What about concerts? Do you play live?

No, I currently just produce beats.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


If it sound like trash, it's probably trash.
- Markie Beats

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

Currently working on a project for Smokepurpp. I've released a few songs in the past, however I have a lot more ready to release.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes, I'd sign in a heart beat. Honestly the pros outweigh the cons. You can do way more for a record label than an independent artist.

Any last words?

Featured artist: TiGYE - TiGYE Explains his rise in the music industry and new projects!


Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist TiGYE.

How did you decide to become an artist?

TiGYE: I mean not only did I grow up being around music, because my pops was a producer and he also was into music, but like for me, as I got older, it became an outlet to cope with my feelings and get out what I had to say. I really look at music as art, it's a language that everyone can understand and connect with.

Keep going and don't give up, I feel like that's the best advice anyone can get really.

- TiGYE


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I have performed live before, which was dope, because every time I've performed, the people always feel me and it's always lit. When you come to a Tigye show, you gone remember my name for sure. I would like to give concerts, that's the goal, go on tour, and make sure everyone will never forget that moment with me.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


I'm only spitting quotes for the moment, you can see my haters but I never really noticed, I question all my motives you should keep a focus, the potions pretty potent, tell my mom to post it, I don't think inside the box so I tear it open, and leave the pieces with the broken words that you've spoken.
- TiGYE

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

Right now I got a lot of new heat coming pretty soon, I'm working some fashion things..not gonna say to much on that..Me and my bro Apex working on a collab tape, so that shit gonna be fuego! And of course more music videos. I just recently dropped a music video for my song 'Sobriety', so everyone go check that out, directed by my boy Tonyo, big shout out to him!

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I would love to get signed to either G.O.O.D Music, or Travis Scott new joint he got, Cactus Jack Records, I look up to that dude, him and Kanye are real creators especially when it comes to music. But if I get any other offers from major labels, I might, just gotta see what they on, and how far I could go with whoever.

Any last words?

Oh yea! Shoutout to my boy Apex, shout out to the whole the squad..they know who they are. Of course shout out to Tonyo for the video, that's family. Um, big shout out to all the supporters and everyone that rocks with my music, i love y'all!

Who Is This Young Artist

Featured artist: MANDOBOII - Who Is This Young Artist


Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist MANDOBOII.

How did you decide to become an artist?

MANDOBOII: I became to be an artist because I love music especially rap/hip hop. I've always had a dream to become one of the biggest out there. I'm still young but I won't let that faze me to becoming the artist I wanna be. My parents always used to argue about not having the money they needed to pay the mortgage and other bills. I would hear them arguing all the time. Us Latinos don't have all to good jobs coming to the us. So basically finding work is the hardest thing to do. I always told my self that when i make it big, I would do a lot more for my community then anyone has ever done. For the better of my family and also for the better of where I grow up at. That's the reason i became an artist.

The best advice I ever got was from my Cousin who passed away this year. The advice she gave me was to not stop on what I wanted to be and to do for my career, weather it was being an engineer or an artist. That advice she gave me inspired me even more cause she would always help me during the bad times I had growing up.

- MANDOBOII


What about concerts? Do you play live?

No I don't do live performances or nor do I do any type of concerts yet.

Best punchline you ever wrote?


Don't fear your enemy that attack's you, But the fake friend that shakes up with you
- MANDOBOII

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

Well right now I'm currently working on my new album named "Trippy Mind" on all major platforms. This album really doesn't have a back story to what I called it. But I think once it's done and I release it, people might start getting a little idea of why I called it that.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I would probably look into all that contract info before I ever sign with any major labels cause I might not see some things that I don't like. But to be honest I would really love to stay independent and having a bigger fan base that actually appreciates me for being me and doing the music I wanna do. But also maybe there could be some advantages to it, if you like what you see in that label. So there's really both advantages and disadvantages to this.

Any last words?

Shout out to my family and friends who always supported me through this journey that is still in progress. Another shout out to my Mexicans down in lil village and Down in Cicero 49th ave. Also And another special shout out to my two best partners that were with me in the beginning Lorenzo and Juan.

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Lo.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Lo: I've had a neglected childhood in a sense. My family tried making me believe I had mental health issues. In order to deal with the controlling nature of my childhood I got into drugs. In 2013 I overdosed and came back. Since then I've been a "different" person to say the least

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes I would but probably not a 360 deal. I've heard to many horror stories. I've done my research so I'm kind of undecided honestly

Lancaster Pa Hip-Hop artist takes Rap to Godly levels

Featured artist: Lo - Lancaster Pa Hip-Hop artist takes Rap to Godly levels


Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Lo.

How did you decide to become an artist?

Lo: My name is Brett Shepherd aka Lo. I created a brand called #blotheinfluencemuzik. I originally started as a drummer and played for about 8 years. Words was always my thing though as I used to write a lot of poetry. I first ever recorded a rap song in 2012 in a dudes attic in Lewistown Pa. After that I knew I had talent. I felt it. My moms left when I was a year old and my dad worked a lot which made me alone a lot. I had some mental problems and since I was a kid I was emotionally connected to angels and demons. In 2013 I passed away and my experiences took my writing to a new level which took me deep into my music. It became somewhat of its own entity. It's a mixture of metal, religion, spirituality, occultism, mythology and symbolism.

Never compare yourself to others

- Lo


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I've never done a live show but I feel I need to in order to grow more as an artist

Best punchline you ever wrote?


"The truth is ima messenger from Heaven bruh; I've been renewed to speak the Shepherd's flock"
- Lo

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I'm currently working on a full album called "Templar Hearted". I do have an 8 track mixtape out on SoundCloud and YouTube called "Dying To Shine/Initiated"

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes I would. The cons are that they own all my rights. But I'd get free studio time and the exposure and hopefully respect I deserve. I just wanna rap and feed my family, living comfortably. I have no team so a record deal would probably be my best bet since I can't do independent alone like this. It's getting hard

Any last words?

I wanna shout out my girlfriend Rachael for being through a lot of dark places with me in this journey and helping me see things in a clear mind. I also wanna thank my best homie Sean MacKenzie for raising me since I was in 4th grade and helping me gain confidence. I wanna thank Sourmouth from Portland Oregon for being the realist dude out there, he talked me out of suicide a few times actually and pushed me to keep going. And I wanna thank my dude KingOxi for the dope beat for the track I did called "They're Here". Big shoutout to my home city Lancaster Pa. Also Harrisburg Pa and my new home Pittsburgh Pa. I wanna thank WavyNation, my old manager Dizzy, Hunger Before Greed Productions, Full Tilt Productions and Fire K Studios for helping me build my sound.

Where can we contact you?
