Young and Talented Iso Hit Em Up talks about his music and life

Interviews

Today on our Hot Seat we have a young and talented 16 year old producer and rapper. Iso Hit Em Up . Let’s have a chat with him.

Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
Iso Hit Em Up : It was overnight that I wanted to be a rapper, some crazy shit happened on my 13th birthday that made me quit wanting to be a basic 9-5 job working human, and become
a world renown artist. And through out the years I just became more and more serious about it. I started producing because I couldn’t afford to buy beats or even find beats I liked, so I taught myself
to cook up using FL.

Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Iso Hit Em Up : Metro Boomin was the first person to inspire me to get serious into producing, his basic life story of a kid who made beats cause he couldn’t afford beats to rap on, and had to keep his grades up for his parents and then produced 24/7 to succeed really
made me vibe with him. After that, $uicideBoy$, Lil Peep, and A$AP Rocky all made me keep going in the industry and inspire my style, both in music and fashion.

Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release?
Iso Hit Em Up : Peep the Blade, produced by the homie from Russia, Trvktxr, is my most recent song. Its only on SoundCloud right now cause I didn’t want to get sued later on for making money off a sample.
It’s one of my favorite songs that I released, other than East Side Suicide. I even got accepted to perform it at the Refuge Live in Chicago in the summer, but im only 16
so they won’t let my under 21 ass in there…

Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Iso Hit Em Up : I got a lot of love from Peep the Blade. Mans really loved the beat , which I don’t blame them, I love it more than my vocals too.

Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
Iso Hit Em Up : Depends, I’d love to bool in the studio with the homies and just work. But I’d also just love to get everybody hyped up like we’re on cocaine. I’m an introvert and extrovert at the same time,
so it depends on how im feeling the day. Plus I never performed live yet tbh, so we’ll see soon enough .

Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
Iso Hit Em Up : Cloud rap and Trap mainly. I love electronic music too, especially WaveMob shit like Klimeks. I also listen to emo bands, big band, heavy metal, witch house, Japanese rock, and EDM.

Twist Online : Have you set some target to achieve as a music artist?
Iso Hit Em Up : My main goal is to get one of those hour long interviews on No Jumper. Thats when I know I made it.

Twist Online : Are you currently working on any other project?
Iso Hit Em Up : Yuhhhhhhhhhhhh. Im working on a small album called M666ssile. Its got 7 tracks on it, a couple produced by me, the brother Dr. Rey, and some other producers from around the world <3
Its gonna be released within the next month, I want to try to make some money before I hit up Poland. Much love to the fam there <3
