Interview with Kori Trouble @KoriTrouble_

 At what age did you decide to become an artist? 

During my early childhood I've always had a passion for writing poetry, kinda used as a coping mechanism due to the poverty stricken environment of Washington D.C , but with never an desire or passion to format my expressions into a song until 2 years ago. 

Name a few of your biggest influences in hip hop?

A few of my biggest influences in hip-hop would be Marvin Gaye, Tupac Shakur & Boosie ,dispite what the media made them out to be there music is/was real, soul penetrating, strengthening, powerful and last but not least a representation of a black boy raised in the ghetto. 

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

I have a few projects I'm working on, I'll be dropping 3 singles this month "I remember" "Gang" & "Go Away" that will hit the charts, a few collab features with artist from Atlanta, Miami, Baltimore New York & New Jersey, a few radio interviews, Breast Cancer Awareness venue held in Baltimore MD with Bussdown Entertainment in attendance, a few food give always to local shelters in Washington D.C & Completing my apparel for Trouble Gang entertainment.

What advice can you give other upcoming artists?

The only advise I can give all up coming artist is to stay real to yourself & not allow your eyes and what you see to influence and capture your soul.

How has life changed for you since becoming an artist?

There's been a great change in my life. Music has given me a voice to share my story, music has been a outlet & allowed me to express my upbringing & lifestyle, with the intention to give hope & happiness but honestly there's another world outside of music, Responsibilities, Accountability, Murder, indictments, just to name a few in every city.

Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?

Yes I've performed at multiple local venues in the DMV and I’m excited to perform more.

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

As of rite now I'm 100% focused on my music and telling my story but I am looking forward to collaborate with other artist in the future.
