Today we will be sharing recent interview with A Versatile Music Artist Seemore Bluntz.
Q: How would you describe your music style?
A. Versatile because there’s no telling which lane I’ll be coming from. I’m like a jack of all trades. I’m very unpredictable, but when I hit you it’s classic. I’m blunt and straight to the point with witty punchlines and catch phrases that’ll capture your ear. I could make you happy. I could make you cry. I could make you laugh. Whatever your mood is at that moment I have music for you to vibe to.
Q. Was rapping something you wanted to do for a long time?
A. Yes. I started doing music at the age of 8. Spinderella (of Salt-N- Pepa) sister was my first manager. We were an all kid group then obviously. Only a few of us actually did lyrics. The rest of us, including I, were just part of the act. Till this day I don’t know what happened, but the group fell apart. I’ve been writing ever since. At age 14 I had another set of managers, J & E Entertainment. They basically helped in the molding process and helped me gain experience with performances. Then one day they disappeared. I just kept doing what I love. I never gave up on hip hop because hip hop never gave up on me.
Q. Who would you love to collaborate with, past or present?
A. I would love to collaborate with many artists of all genres. But if I have to name a few, I would love to do work with Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Jay-Z, Nas, Busta Rhymes, even Eminem. I would love to work with producers such as Dr. Dre and Timbaland. I would also love to do work with Rihanna and Marsha Ambrosius and CorePreme. There’s so much talent. I could go on for hours.
Q. What CD’s or music you listen to that may shock your fans?
A. Believe it or not, disco. I’m fascinated by the up tempo beats and roller skating. They looked like they used to have lots of fun in the 70’s. Plus in the household I grew up in, my grandmother played it all the time. May she rest in peace. She passed away from breast cancer. I was often told I have an old soul. I’m an Al Green fan. I love all his music. I’m big on Michael Jackson. I followed Prince’s music from the 70’s and up as well. My catalogue is very vast.
Q. What do you like better, performing or recording? Why?
A. Performing because I love to see the look on people’s faces when I’m on stage sharing my music. Especially people that never heard my music. You know the feeling that you get on a drop of a roller coaster? For me, it’s a similar feeling when I’m about to perform. Guess you can say I’m a thrill seeker. Since a child I loved to be in front of a crowd. I participated in various plays from schools to churches. After a while it may be tiring, but it’s more excitement in it then recording.
Q. What’s the name of your latest track and what’s it about?
A. Number 1. It basically speaks for itself. But to dive in depth, it’s about my frustration as an artist for the past 20 years of trying to make it. People had tried to bring me down, discredit me or even told me I was wasting my time. From the friends I’ve lost and money I’ve spent to rock on stages, I’m going to make sure it was all worth it. This is my job. This is what I’m here to do. I’m here to put that work in. I ain’t stopping till I’m number 1. It’s the debut single off my upcoming album titled “Shut Up And Listen”.
Q. What’s been the weirdest fan experience?
A. After a show, I had a woman rush me saying how she loved my music and all. But when she noticed I have hazel eyes, she literally stretched my eyes open to see if they were real. Lol. For the record, they are. But on a brighter sided of things, I had a guy out in London somewhere say he downloaded all my songs I released over the years through Social Media and made his own personal Seemore Bluntz album. I thought that was really cool. When you a nobody trying to be somebody, you appreciate all the love you get.
Q. What sort of image do you portray to your fans?
A. I’m not a bad guy. I’m just as human as everyone else. I just want people to accept me for who I am. I’m not a conscious MC and I’m not a gangster rapper. I don’t know how to ride skateboards or wear backpacks. I smoke weed, but I try to make music that everyone could relate to. I make songs about life experiences. There’s so much in the world around you to make music about. A lot of songs on “Shut Up And Listen” is geared for the fans to understand Seemore Bluntz as a person. For example, I did a song about my mother. She was a vital piece of my life. She passed away in 200 from lung cancer. It still hurts till this day, but it’s something that I must live with. I’m showing them where I come from.
Q. What are your future goals as an artist?
A. Longevity. Being one of the best to ever do it. I’m here to bring something different to the table by doing music nobody does anymore with a twist. I feel like I’m the element of hip-hop that’s been missing. I’m also currently writing a novel and I have few movie ideas I would like to put in play. I’m also planning on shooting a video on Staten Island with a company called www.StatenIslandMediaServices.com with the rapper www.CorePreme.com. I’m an entertainer by nature. I want to create a foundation or a platform for the upcoming generation so they could have a place to express their artistic skill. This is only the beginning.
