Swazy Baby Interview



Check out my interview with Slip N Slide Records newest artist Swazy Baby!

1. First, can you please introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about
yourself?
I was born and raised in Cordele, GA. I been at this rapping thang fa' bout
11 years now. I don't really have a lane when it comes to music, I just do
it. Its gone be real doe.
2. Who do you think your biggest influences are, and have they influenced
you in any other way besides musically?
I think my uncle influenced me the most 'cause I know him personally, so
when he tell me something, 10 times outta 10 he telling me to help me. He is
a natural born hustler. I watched him and I learned how to hustle. I learned
how to go out and sell my CDs and talk to folk.
3. I want to congratulate you on being signed with Slip N Slide records.
It's an amazing opportunity. How did you go about getting signed with them?
Was it more of them finding you, or you finding them?
It took Bigga Rankin comin to a small city that a lotta people prolly ain't
gone never hear 'bout, for Slip-N-Slide to know Swazy Baby, ya feel me? I
don't know if he was talent searching or what but dawg had that much faith
in me to brag to Ted Lucas 'bout a country boy.
4.Also, congratulations on your single "I Sang." Where were you the first
time you heard your single on the radio and how did you feel?
I was in my city real late, like 4 or 5 in the mornin' and it came on. I
ain't really respond cause in my area, folk be tellin me I got 4 or 5 songs
on the radio, so it was nothin'.
5. If you could accomplish one thing throughout your whole career, what
would it be?
I wanna show my city the big city life, ya feel me? I know its boring than a
bi' down there, so one day Im'ma get some buses and take'em to da big
city!!!
6. Are you currently working on any other projects besides music?
Music is my main focus, so I don't really have time to think 'bout what else
to do.
7. Are you working on any collaborations? Who are some artist you'd like to
work with?
Na'll, but I wanna do sum' wit' Jeezy, Drake, Wayne, and Nicki Minaj in the
future.
8. What separates you from the other young artist who are currently breaking
into the industry?
My versatility and the fact that I'm from da country. The way I rap, the
beats I choose to rap off of, and that I'm hungry so I work hard. Alotta
people still gotta find theyself. They tryin to be somebody else. They
scared to rap how they wanna rap and rap 'bout what they actually do. I
ain't doe.
9. What advice can you give to someone who wants to become a signed
recording artist?
Grind hard independently first. Get in the streets and shake some people
hands. Let'em know who you is, ya feel me? Oh yea, and keep it 100.
10. I want to thank you for taking the time to do the interview. Do you have
any last thoughts or comments?
I preciate everybody who fuckin wit' me on da music tip. Check out my new
website www.swazybaby.com to download my latest mixtape "The Future of
Hip-Hop Vol. 2 - Follow DaRealSwazyBaby" hosted by Bigga Rankin and TJDaDj.
Request "I Sang and "So Much It" on your local radio station. The links to
follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and Youtube are on da website. And
be looking out for the "I Sang" video!!
