schoolboy.c - interview 23
1. Tell us your name and a bit about yourself!
schoolboy.c is a name I had before I started making music. It was my Instagram name for 6 years now inspired by Q that just stuck with me to this day. I am in a group (mp) with multiple other artists from my area that are continuing to grow in popularity.
2. What made you start making music?
My manager $lather and I wanted to be the first big artists to come out of the 315. We always had an obsession with the underground music scene. We had opportunities to get into a booth so we gave it a shot and here we are.
3. Who are your influences?
My biggest influences would have to be Q, members only, and local producer coldxbeats who originally started my career in music. Shoutout to him.
4. What is your take on the underground rap scene right now?
I think it’s crazy how many unbelievable artists go unnoticed. A lot of people are not getting the credit they deserve and I think underground music is better than mainstream but that’s just me.
5. What are your goals for 2019 regarding music?
I have a few songs on the way with features like shroomhead, leavemealone, that weird kid, Xio and many more. I am releasing a big project soon with many features that is almost finished. Date is yet to be set but I hope to get noticed a little bit more after people hear what I have been keeping in the vault for quite some time now.
6. You have 1 person to thank who would it be?
My boy Bpalms motivates me in every way and is always pushing us to grind as much as we can. Check him out at @mp_bpalmer710
7. What is your process for recording music ?
Each song I make is the way I’m feeling in that moment. I have multiple different vibes from every song I have put out. Once I figure out what I’m writing about, all my energy is put into recording a good song. Before I record I rehearse for a while to make sure it flows the best.
8. Any upcoming projects or singles fans should be getting ready for?
My first big project is on the way soon. MP VOL 1. With many features and songs that will be unexpected so stay on the lookout for that on soundcloud. I also hope to put out an EP. with local artist Loyal-T who you will be hearing a lot about soon sure. Also I hope to put out a collab EP. with Xio who also is also on the come up.
9. What is your favorite part about being an artist/musician/rapper?
I can be who I want to be. Music is what I want to do for the rest of my life and if I get an opportunity I’m going to take it. There’s nothing I look forward to more than making my own art.
10. What impact do you want to have on the world?
I want people to realize that negativity is just motivation. I want to prove the people who doubted us wrong. They want us to lose so nothing motivates me more. I want to show the world that anything is possible with a positive mindset.
11. What are your ambitions with music is this just a hobby or is this a full blown 24/7lifestyle your embodying?
Half and half I would say as of now. I am trying to live my life like a dream so I am doing whatever it takes to get to that point. I would like to turn my work as an artist into a career and I am going to do the most to make sure that happens.
12. Who is your favorite artist in the rap game right now and why?
Wifisfuneral for sure. His energy is crazy and I can’t go a day without listening to his shit. I wake up to his album on most days. His flow is unique.
13. Anything else you have to say ?
Shoutout to everyone that listens to me right now and everyone that shows love and positivity. MP is not going to be forgotten. My instagram is @mp__schoolboy.c and my Twitter is @mp_schoolboy.c
