Today on our Hot Seat we have a talented artist T.Clips with us. Let’s have a chat with him.
Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
T.Clips : The first album I ever purchased was Eminem’s Slim Shady LP. I was hooked since then. My mom slipped up and let me get it and I was hooked after that. I was like 12 and when she heard it she took it asap. My buddy back then burned me another copy. I was hooked. The word play, the delivery. It was like a cartoon. Since then I wanted to rap. I started out on a tape player in 05, I didn’t know anything about making music. I would use the internet at school to look up programs to make music with. I got some program, I can’t remember which one, and started working. I had a cheap mic and an old desktop. I’ve come a long way.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
T.Clips : Everyone. Seeing how many people are making and sharing music right now is amazing. Anyone out there doing what they want to do, that’s my inspiration. I have fun doing it.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release?
T.Clips : My most recent release is Hamburglar. It came to me out of no where. I got the beat from Mac-22. I met him through Reddit. I throw this beat on and all I can think of is seeing the comedian Hamburger. He wore this cowboy hat on Def Comedy Jams. His catch phrase was “HAAAAMMMMBUUURRRGAAAA”. I dont know why I thought of that. The burglar part comes from the old Mc’ds character The Hamburglar. I was hungry I guess.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
T.Clips : Good from what I see so far. I can’t complain. I love doing this, any love is good love in my opinion.
Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
T.Clips : Both are too different to compare. Two different energies. Both positive, both are lovely.
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
T.Clips : Ahh Alternative right now. It changes all the time. PUP and Joyce Manor are sick, I listen to them the most right now.
Twist Online : Have you set some target to achieve as a music artist?
T.Clips : Enjoy making music. I can’t help but do it. What ever happens happens, I do it for me.
Twist Online : Are you currently working on any other project?
T.Clips : Always working on something. I got two new tracks coming soon.
