@JJKNOX INTERVIEW

At what age did you decide to become an artist?

I was about 24 when I decided to seriously pursue music, but I was tinkering with it and had a vague idea since I was 19. 

Name a few of your biggest influences in hip hop?

I like a lot of the more artistically eccentric MC’s. Andre 3000 and the earlier Kid Rock, are big inspirations, as well as Kanye West and Redman. Generally the people who feel the most genuine and original in their lyric patterns. 


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

I’m working on expanding my sound to incorporate different genres. I want to create a body of work that is inclusive to all demographics, lots of energy and an original perspective as well as fresh use of words and seldom explored concepts in this category of music. Eventually a fully furnished mix tape. 


What advise can you give other upcoming artists?

The advice is, don’t look for too much advice. You have one chance to try and become something that allows you to be happy, once you know what that is don’t waste time reading stats and bios. Just go do it. Never stop attempting to get the life you want.

How has life changed for you since becoming an artist?

Everything that happens to or around me is now kindle. Everything is a possible song. But I soon I hope to have a way more exciting answer for that question.

Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?

I have, for a very small group of people who never asked me to.

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

Infu, who was kind enough to contribute a verse to the song REPEAT. He’s a remarkably smooth MC who has catchy cadence and effortless flow. Also probably the most genuinely nice guy I may ever meet in this industry. Zanets produced the track REPEAT and he is so damn creative, I’m honored to have worked with him as much as I have. Dj CapOne and North P are two phenomenal producers who I am also working with.
