We recently had the chance to sit down with Young Living Legends own Black Baron, to catch up with what he’s been doing. Take a look at the full interview below.
So we had some questions from some fans based on the last short interview we had with you so we here at
LuvIndieHipHop wanted to follow up with you in hopes that we can get the answers the fans really want to know.
So first we ask that you tell us a little about how you got started as an artist?
Being that I was an only child, I started to make up my own rhymes, and by the seventh grade my homie Cleveland taught me a little more and it picked up from there.
So how would you describe your style?
Well I got my flow from my cousin in Ohio who also taught me my delivery, so I don’t have the usual GA style flow on my real music.
And so at that point you decided to go further and pursue a rap career, so tell us how that came about and what are some of the first steps you took?
It was 9th grade when I learned to start recording myself on mix craft free edition ( laugh) and by the time I was in 11th-12th grade I gained the attention of my peers and over all created a really nice buzz, but it was when I went off to college that all of that changed. I came back and the style had changed
So at that point would you say that you had to develop a different approach or were you able to eventually jump right back in?
I was able to watch the trend for a minute. Once I saw the lane open up I took it. Kendrick Lamar really made a lane for trippy/hippy or outspoken music once again in the game. Found my engineer @ayemackp on Instagram and now we do sessions via internet connection.
A lot of artists are struggling with their own cities not supporting them, would you say that you get enough support from your city?
A lot of artist started without the support of their own city. I feel that reverse marketing is a pretty smart idea so I market to everyone but my city. If you can build a fan base outside they will follow within; Sheppard your flock.
Have you thought of any ways to expand yourself as a brand as in clothing, cologne, drinks, etc?
Well I have a team of people that are in other industries of art and fashion all within the hip-hop community. We all link in together because your network is your net worth and I don't see myself going broke anytime soon. Lol
Yes, we defiantly agree with you on that one ;)
Besides rap what are your other talents and or hobbies?
I customize and repair iPhones and smart devices. I own my own repair company which in return helps fund my projects.
What is your favorite food?
I come from a cultural background so I love ox tail, rice and peas with cabbage if I could eat it every day I would. LOL
If you a chance to go and perform anywhere in the world, where is the first place you would go and why?
I'd like to hit Europe travel east Amsterdam UK blow some of that bud you only read about in high times.
Yes, indeed I’ve seen those stories (lol)
If you had a chance to do a song with a singer on the hook, who would it be? And why?
If I could do a hook it would be with @kcamp427, that's the homie from back in the day. He on now and I salute his success, we all putting on for the North side.
Okay, well we will be sure to check him out ;)
