Today on our Hot Seat we have 1681BC with us. Let’s have a chat with him.
Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers?
1681BC : “Hey wassup everyone I am a up and coming rapper by the name of 1681BC.I am from South GA and I am 22 years old.”
Twist Online : You have been an athlete, what was the inspiration behind joining the music industry?
1681BC : “ Well when I was a athlete I was always overlooked so it made me create a fire inside myself to be seen but something don’t go as planned but anyone who is a dream chaser knows that there is more than one way to get to a goal and I’ve always been a huge fan of music the energy it brings, the emotions it draws, how we associate things with it I love it . That and I’m a big fan of Michael Jackson, Chris brown, Usher and the list goes on and how they made music you could relate to no matter what your emotional state is. The way they perform is just amazing and I felt like my whole life that that’s gonna be me one day so it lead me to start making music.”
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release under Rated ?
1681BC :“Well with this latest project whenever my music touches new ever ya it gets good feedback with that i take it a run with it. If i like it they i know somebody else will just, because i also am a fan of music so i’m learning how to make music people wanna hear but still keep it me. So taking my time staying in the studio just spending time on me and myself i feel like I’m getting better but where I’m from i feel like I’m not getting the recognition i deserve so i decided to name the album underrated to showcase that i can hang with the big dawgs “
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received so far?
1681BC :“locally it’s ok a few here and there but really it’s been a slow climb which i expected . But i have some real fans that love when i drop music so it’s a steady climb just trying to get it to everyone’s ear and let em hear what i got and let the people decide on if they wanna rock with me.”
Twist Online : “Paint The Picture” you track?
1681BC : That’s not my song lol before I change my name to 1681BC it was just BC and so eelshad a name similar to mine so out music got bunched together so that track is not mine though.
Twist Online : What attracts you more, Working in studios or performing on stage?
1681BC :“To be honest both of them really attract me,but if i had to pick one i think it would be performing on stage. Traveling city to city state to state meeting people who you have touched. Making relationships and just everyone coming to have a good time with me and my music is mind blowing cause you would never think your feeling would bring people together to sing it with you “
Twist Online : What’s the best part of being a music artist?
1681BC :”To me it has to be the freedom. For instance if a regular person and you do something gout of the norm where your from you look at differently like your weird but if you take what they call weird and put it together how you want then someone else will love it when the others hate and it’s that feeling of i can be myself and no have to worry about someone tryn to make you do thing a specific way and limit you and your mind “.
Twist Online : Have you set any goals to achieve?
1681BC : “Yes within the next couple months to a year I’m working on have me my brand and my music on a higher platform so that way i can book more shows reach new people and reach my goal to become a superstar”.
