Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
Roc O star : Life! It’s my life experiences. Looking back retrospectively gave me the foresight into what I wanted to create. My first single and EP is an expression of a proportion of my life story. I’m referring to Roc O Star the person, and not the glorified entertainer and persona that encompasses all the stuff I don’t particularly own which people see in videos. I’m armed with a message and a desire to teach people how to learn from the mistakes of others. Let’s be clear, there is no happy ending to hustling. I try to create music that normal and down to earth people can relate to. I fight for the little guy. There are millions of those, like I, out here doing what they have to do to put food on table.

Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?

Roc O star : Quite frankly, the gift of music was passed down to me from my dad’s side of the family. But tragically, he died of alcohol abuse. Music, I think, was God’s way of creating a way out of the chaos for me. Artists that have inspired me are; Muddy Waters, Prince, Bruno Mars, NWA,Linkin Park, and Gucci Mane among many others. I strive to create music that touches the hearts of the listener and at the same time construct a beat that permeates their thoughts for a while

Roc O star : The video starts out showing me as a child and things I had to go through growing up.The song taps in the the struggles of every single mom out there doing it on their own.This song will be an anthem for the ages .

 

 

Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Roc O star : ”She Work” just came out so ill know in a few weeks but I want my fans to gain an experience and music journey unlike any other. Is my music a different music styling to some? Maybe! Or maybe not, but its non-the-less beautiful and raw, and its my raw truth. So, hopefully my truth will help inspire the masses or be reflective to lives of my fans. My EPK is rock with soul and a splash of hip-hop. This untapped lane will set me apart from many artists today. This affords me the opportunity to be a global and worldwide star. In addition to the songs, I use cool visuals in my videos to help convey messages of change, hope, despair and inspirations, as told through the backdrop of my personal life experiences.

Roc O star :I believe I was destined to do music and to be an artist from my birth. It was up to me to get laser focus, hone my skill and do what I was born to do and what I love doing. I was already an artist before getting into the “industry,” because an artist is one who is constantly creative and I’ve always been that. In a nut shell I love performing more hands down because I can connect with the fans.
