@Yocvo

What age where you when you decided to become an artist?

When I was 6 years old. I built a fortress out of the extra pieces of a $6 venetian blind. It was my temple. Unfortunately, it was destroyed in a great grounding. I've always been creative.




Name a few of your biggest influences in hip hop?

I'll never forget the first time I heard the Doggfather through a stolen car stereo. A lot of my inspiration comes through friendly competition with my fellow DEAFWISH family members like Employee & Chivas & Kream. I've always been a big Ludacris fan - as a whyte guy you have to be ;) - and I'm always amazed at the ways people come at this game.





What are some of the things you’re working on right now?

I have 3 more videos in the works and mixtape called L!V3S in the works. Most or all the beats will be done by DJ Knife (@knife4lyfe), he's a long time collaborator with major talent. People need to quit sleepin' on him.





What advise can you give other upcoming artists?

Don't expect anyone to do shi~ for you if you're not nice. Make your own money and spend it as wisely as possible. It's a marathon, not a race. Hang in there kitty. Think outside the box. Cloud Synergy for the 2.0 or something...





How has life changed for you since becoming an artist?

I have less time to monitor my online income, but more time to thanks yeesus that the money comes so easily. Generally, I'm a lot calmer.





Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?

Many times. As a DJ, an emcee and a musician. I've been cheered, booed and shut down for being too awesome. You just never know what you're going to get and that's the magic of live music. I think the positive reviews are outweighing the negative these days.





Are there any artists/talent that you’ve worked with that we should be watching?

As I mentioned, C'n'K (@chivasAndKream), DJ Knife (@knife4lyfe) and Employee (@sheak47). I got a side project called Life Advice that's Husker Du level punk. Lil Wayne lowered the bar on rappers playin' guitar so I figured why not. There's tons of great rappers and musicians I hope to work with, we'll just see what happens.

  At what age did you decide to become an artist?

I'm sure that I've always been an artist but my earliest memory of wanting to make music and nothing else I would have to say at about junior year in high school 


Name a few of your biggest influences in hip hop?

I'm not really an upcoming artist because i released music in 06 with wu - tang... but i get what you mean... stay positive and PLAN it out don't just do it for the fuck of it you know? strategies !


How has life changed for you since becoming an artist?
ever since I caught a buzz people tell me my music is terrible and that i should be arrested for making " EVIL " songs and shit like that... it's kinda like I'm getting harassed more than praised ... alot of my music has messages that make you "THINK" and use your free will rather than being told what to do... and it seems like the people who know where I'm coming from and love my records are also being Harassed for knowing that my mixtape interludes are the TRUE reason that I am promoting music.



Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?
Yes... I do a lot of running around performing my Record "MASTER P" around the country to raise awareness and push the culture forward with these futurist audio impressions that I'm Pitchin...

What age where you when you decided to become an artist?
I've been writing rhymes since I was a young teen. It wasn't until a couple years ago that I realized I wanted to do more with my music. I wanted to reach people and make an impact on peoples' lives. I wanted to do more than to just have my close friends as my audience,




Name a few of your biggest influences in hip hop?
My biggest influences in hip hop has to be artists like Nas. He's my favorite rapper. His way of story telling and description in his rhymes is just dope to me. Of course Jay, with his witty way with words and Big Pun as well with his flow and style of rap was amazing. I think I like story tellers and artists with messages like Slick Rick, Rakim, Tupac and B.I.G. I'm only 29 so I also grew up on Kriss Kross and other artists like Kid n Play and Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff who showed its okay to have fun and be yourself. Overall, they are only a few of the artists that played a part in influencing me in hip hop.



What are some of the things you’re working on right now?
I am currently promoting my album "I Hate Rappers". It is my first full length album. I've shot a couple of videos for it and am pushing it out to the people. It has had some great feedback and has been featured on a couple blogs and radio sites such as CT's own Hot 93.7 and NYC's own Hot 97. So I have a couple performances and events in the works for it. I am also simultaneously working on my next project entitled "The Grey Area" which will be dropping this Fall 2014. I'm also collaborating with other artists and producers on a few projects and will be making my acting debut as the lead in Howard Hughes film, who actually as shot all the videos for the songs from my album "I Hate Rappers'.



What advise can you give other upcoming artists?
Quality over quantity and Art over greed.



How has life changed for you since becoming an artist?
It's opened doors to meet many great artists from all aspects of life and provided me an opportunity to make an impact on peoples' lives and help them through times of need or just to help people enjoy life. No better feeling.



Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?
Yes, I've performed all over. Looking to expand my reach but, performing is great. Nothing like having that immediate feedback and being in touch with the people who love this music and culture.



Are there any artists/talent that you’ve worked with that we should be watching?
Prestige, Front Page, Charlie Tanqueray, Marvalyss, Ace Alexander, Ace, Josh Wells, Noates, Steede Chinan, The Autobotz, ATV, Joey Batts, Elle-Ce, Aja,DJ Meechie Natasha Ramos, Ysanne,  Emjae,Ru Williams, Perry, DJ Meechie, Logikil, etc, etc, etc! That enough?? Lol (I always forget people so don't shoot me... Lol)

At what age did you decide to become an artist?

I've actually been rapping since age six (1996), producing since age 13, and started my label Static Groundz Ent. at age 18.





Name a few of your biggest influences in hip hop?

Biggie, Eminem, Big Pun, DMX, Jadakiss, T.I., Lauryn Hill






What are some of the things you’re working on right now?

I currently have the single "Princess LaLa" avail on itunes, amazon and everywhere else. The video will be dropping for that in a week. I also have the follow up single "No Direction" featuring rock artist Victoria Watts with the video. Lastly the mixtape, both songs are featured on, "A Very Very Good Mixtape" will be dropping this spring.





What advise can you give other upcoming artists?

The only advice really is to constantly perfect your craft to all extents. Practice it, master it, and READ. That's the big one because most artists don't read about the business aspect of it and they get into things like "pay for plays" and all other types of "come ups" from dream selling promoters. Also realize that no one not even your biggest fan can believe in your craft like you so understand that you are the only person that can really put the heart into it and make it happen.







How has life changed for you since becoming an artist?

This life is really all I know. My Mom was an artist so I've been in studios, rehearsals, shows etc almost everyday as a child. In a nutshell there really wasn't much transition once I took it up.







Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?

Yes I've performed in tons of venues, big and small, up and down the east coast. Performing is actually my favorite part of my craft and I have been said to have highly energetic and explosive shows.
Are there any artists/talent that you’ve worked with that we should be watching?
Yes. I have my right hand guy "Uncle Rizzie" who is also apart of SGE and we just finished a duo-mixtape that will be dropping this year as well in accordance to his and my solo projects. Also my Vp and head producer Drufio and Sicc Nikk who has recently joined SGE as part of the SGE Production team.

Chox-Mak & Henny Tha Brain - In Yo Face

 Chox-Mak and his protege Henny Tha Brain are starting to gain familiarity and are ready to take the game by storm. Chox-Mak started getting everything together by working with DJ YRS Jerzy who also took the role of managing Chox-Mak's career as well. Chox and Henny are here today with their latest installment titled "In Yo Face" which is a hard hitting track that has no hook and features nothing but hard lyrics. The wordplay that is displayed by both Henny and Chox will take you back to the 90's era of hip hop. Their styles take you back to when hip hop was really about having lyrics and making music with substance. Dr.G the master beat smith behind the production went all out for Chox and Henny to paint the lyrical picture. "In Yo Face" will be a great track for everyone to enjoy. These two both have the drive and dedication it takes to become something major in this music industry. Definitely look out for a Chox-Mak and Henny Tha Brain collaboration project in the near future.

Chox-Mak & Bunty Beats - Patience

Chox-Mak is by far one of the hardest working up and comers in the underground hip hop scene. He is also one of the most versatile while everyone is making trap music or just strictly party music Chox-Mak is making music for the soul. He can switch up and make all different types of music as you will hear when you listen to his latest release "Patience". The sound of this track is not anything that you could find on the radio or any where else. Bunty Beats is the master beat smith behind this production they have been working together now for well over 2 years and haven't looked back since. This record gives you an old school sound with a little bit of old school 80's funk with just a twist of rock with the strings that Bunty used.  It is everything that makes a track a classic. Patience is the first single off of their collaboration project tilted "Balance" which will be dropping exclusively with Audio Mack as the host. Chox-Mak will keep all of "The Choxen Ones" updated about the Balance project via his social networks just as well as Bunty Beats will.
