BEHIND THE BRAND SERIES PART ii
ART LIVING’S interview series "BEHIND THE BRAND," where we get intimate and personal about the artists' creative process. We kicked off our latest episode with Le'Asha Julius and Quincy Vidal.
EXPLORATION OF SOUND
I began making music at an early age, writing poorly skilled raps and making the most horrid beats and instrumentals. Over time I strengthened my skills until it became second nature. I had to keep listening and following others while trying to find myself and my voice. How could I attract the ears of fellow Hip-Hop heads just as those before me have done? What art could I REALLY create?
Graffiti Lips is just that. Art spoke from the lips of an emcee. I do not have the album choc-full of any one thing in particular but found myself honing in on the craft of rap rather than worrying about current 'trends' and trying to fit in. I wanted to do something that felt genuinely and UNAPOLOGETIC me and I still feel that I might have missed my mark. As a creative, I feel we all have a responsibility to express with the goal of perfection. But what's perfect? Through the process of making this album and getting older and more mature, I feel I finally started figuring out who I am and need to be. It was important for me to create something I wanted to create with the emphasis on me. Music is about expression, about emotion, about pain. Like any other forms of art, music has a way of bringing out reflections of life that otherwise might go unnoticed.
TRIPPIN' OVER WIRES
Trippin’ Over Wires is an eclectic collection of Hip Hop musical styles. Those styles range from Lo-Fi, Boom Bap with a dash of modern sound, all to create NowUsay’s unique style. Please take a listen, better yet a journey through sound. Seven different levels of it to be exact. If Dante had his inferno, NowUsay has his melodious homebase.
RME "ROLL MODELS"
Rashid Amir and Jebari Mandela are back at it again with another installement. Roll Models is a feel good project, which can be played as a soundtrack for life.
The Heartbeat of LABK’s Summer Nightz is a collaboration of songs with various artist. This album will be a compilation album that will have various aims and spices of the industry. It will ideally be distributed at the end of the summer.
