We are sharing our recent interview with a very talented hip-hop artist Lazer Beam Green.
Twist Online : Please introduce yourself to our readers.
Lazer Beam Green : Hello all, my name is Lazer Beam Green. I am young, 21 year old hip-hop artist from the Wisconsin area.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Lazer Beam Green : I have always been in love with music since I was little, but back then I wanted to get into fold music like Johnny Cash. The person I give the most credit to getting me started in rapping was Logic, and Mac Miller. There was just thought about their flow, and clever lyrics that I fell in love with.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release single ‘Ride With Me feat. Maizey Parker’?
Lazer Beam Green : “Ride With Me’s” inspiration is actually a kind of funny story. Earlier this year, I got a call from my buddy to take a spontaneous road trip to North Carolina from Wisconsin. So we left on a Sunday night, and traveled across the states to go to Eastern Carolina University to see some friends. We left that week on Wednesday to come back home and made some stops at places like Washington D.C at 2am to visit the monuments in the pouring rain.
This was the my first ever professional done track with Jamison from Sheboygan Recording Studio. He was the one that hooked me up with Maizey, and she did an amazing job with the chorus. I am very blessed to have those two helping me with music.
Twist Online : What kind of response it has received so far?
Lazer Beam Green : So far the response has been outstanding! It has broken my personal record for listens, and like on soundcloud, and is creating a pretty solid buzz across blogs and internet stores. I am so grateful to the fans, and the friends who have spread my music and listen to it on a daily basis!
Twist Online : What attracts you more performing on stage or working in studios?
Lazer Beam Green : Honestly, I love them both. The reason is because each one them has a different feeling that is unlike any in the world. There is nothing like the feeling of being upstate (or in a crowd at a bar in some cases haha) and you spitting your hottest tracks and you see everyone vibing with you and your music. They might not know the songs, but that doesn’t matter because they are feeling you and what you do.
But on the flip, when you’re in the studio there is this feeling of creation and potential that gets me so excited. And when im in the booth laying down my verse or a chorus and you finish and it went perfectly and is exactly how I imagined it going I basically feel invincible.
If I had to pick one though, I would say performing on stage is the biggest attractions to me!
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
Lazer Beam Green : That’s another hard Twist Online! I love everything from old country, to 80’s pop, to hard rap! Going off of what I listen to the most, I would say my favorite is lyrical rap/ hip-hop. Artists like Logic, G-eazy, Joyner Lucas, Eminem. But a lot of the time you will catch me jamming to Johnny Cash, The Eagles, Men at Work, etc.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve as a music artist?
Lazer Beam Green : Absolutely I have. I see my music career as a set of goals or levels. Everything I do is to complete the next goal and achieve that next level. My long term goal for this year is to release my latest project, and singles and to double the number each time. Also, by summer/fall to go on a small Midwestern tour. My long term goal as a music artist to get to the point where I am doing music as a full time job, and hopefully I will be able to do that soon!
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Lazer Beam Green : I am, and have been since this October. As of right now I have 8 completely finished new songs that I will be releasing over the summer, all singles, to help tell the story of my journey. ‘Ride With Me’ was just the beginning and the new track will be coming out in early April. This track will be called; ‘They All Say’ and is unlike anything I have ever done before.
Twist Online : What’s the best way to follow you for updates?
Lazer Beam Green : You can follow me and any social medias under the user name Lazer Beam Green! Instagram and Facebook are the best ways to connect with me, and both handles are @lazerbeamgreen. I love talking with fans, friends, or anyone who may have questions for me about music or anything!
