(New Exclusive Interview) Hip Hop Artist HSVN Talks Album Changes And The Music Industry
1. How long have you been doing music and what is your normal process of creating music?
- I’ve been making for about 10 year. I started as a producer, but I’ve only been writing for 2-3 years I’d say. My process is pretty simple, I normally start making a beat. Then cut a hook as I’m making the beat. Then finish writing the song once the beat is done being produced.
2. How important is it for you to real live what you speak about in your music? or does that matter?
- It’s important, because it gives you shit to talk about. If I have nothing to talk about then I can’t write anything. So I welcome mistakes and challenges all day because it gives me a story to tell.
3. What three artist would you put on “Juice” remix and why would you put them on there?
- ASAP Ferg, 2 Chainz, and Juicy J. We’d have a popping ass strip club video for sure. I love how all of them have fun in they’re records. No one would be afraid to say some off the wall shit.
4. Changes is the name of the album. Why that title and what does it mean to you personally?
- Originally the first singe was called changes, so I ran with that for the name of the album. Every song is about a situation that changed me internally during the process of finishing this album.
5. Top 5 spots to eat at in Vegas and why?
- John Mules BBQ , BBQ is my favorite food
- Lola’s, I love they’re gumbo and shrimp & grits
- Aloha Kitchen, The have a fire ass BBQ chicken plate
- Lotus of Siam, I’d kill for they’re garlic prawns
- Goldbox Foodtruck, They make my favorite shrimp po’boys
6. biggest music regret and why?
- I wish I would’ve waited to sign a pub deal. When money gets low in this business, you tend to make quick decisions that aren’t the best for you. Had I signed a year or 2 later I would’ve known exactly what to do with my paper, but I was young and dumb, so I through my funds like water.
7. What makes you different from all the other artist that are coming out of Vegas?
- How relatable my songs are is what makes me different and even stand out. I don’t talk about hustling as far as selling drugs or being a pimp, but I talk about real life situations that people go through on a daily basis. I also make myself vulnerable. I don’t have a problem saying I’m in love, I’m brokenhearted, or have been addicted to drugs. I keep it real, where a lot of artists here are trying to put on the show that Vegas offers. That’s not me or what I’m about, I’m a real person.
