Tech G is an artist based in the United States. The rapper has recently received a lot of positive attention due to his tracks. We got the chance to interview him below:
First of all, can you tell us how you were introduced into the music industry?
Well, I have yet to connect with anyone from the music industry on the business side of thing’s but far as my own experience in the light of this career, it honestly started because of my engineer telling me how to get my music out there to a wider audience. I’ve been writing songs seriously since 2009 and didn’t really get anything out there until that year he spoke to me in 2017 then my first studio album was released March 3rd 2018. I had a mixtape and demo or rather EP out in 2016 on SoundCloud ..but after talking with him it was a new introduction.
Where do you find your artistic inspiration?
I catch my inspirations from what I knew and just use it in a different way. I was always attracted to the old school of thing’s definitely the music ‘all music’ Im talking 90’s 80’s 70’s and 60’s RnB, HipHop, Blues and Rock n Roll. It’s only a small few of today’s music I listen to’ and now when I do its only 3 genres now and lesser rappers.
How do you feel about your music’s popularity?
It’ll grow if I make the right moves and have enough currency but I would say I did came up out of nowhere for this decent amount of recognition I do have. You all appreciated.
Who have been the most influential musicians for you?
Influencers and influential?… Well to me the influence is life’ not sure how that sounds to someone else but yeah. When it come influential artist though! Its alot, Notorious BIG is one then Ice Cube, Tupac, Jay Z, OutKast, Kanye West, Wayne at one point uhh RHCP that stands for Red Hot Chilli Peppers who else? Denzel Curry, Schoolboy Q, Cole and Jay Rock you know what all hiphop artist of the 90’s though being from the east coast Im more into 90’s west coast. It’s too many artists to name and some RnB and pop singer’s too.
What are your music goals?
My goals with my music are to make monumental moments and tell of a time before its witnesses and share my story, your story, her story and his story along with the young ones story
If you have to choose someone to collaborate with on an EP who would that be and why?
Honestly I have no clue who I wanna collaborate with.. I exhausted the idea mentally forreal, but to give an answer LL Cool J, Jay Rock and Gorillaz all depends on how it works.
What advice would you give to upcoming artists?
The best advice I’d give an artist on the come up is ‘have thick skin, stay out them feelings, be true to you and respect people never ever bow to no one ..and work hard.
