Sun Tzu The General - Interview

1. Tell us your rap name and where are you from?

Sun Tzu the General, I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD

2. What made you start making music?

Just the art! The ability to paint pictures with words is a skill that can change lives. I love being able to see people when they feel what I'm saying and can relate it to their live everyday

3. Who are your influences in rap?

Wu-Tang, Nas, Biggie, Pac, Boot Camp, Shylo, So many more I could call out names all day

4. What is your take on the underground rap scene right now?

I think real hip hop still exists in the underground...So many amazing artists are beginning to breakthrough the watered down popular music u hear everyday. We're changing the narrative!

5. As an artist who has to compete with thousands of others for streams/plays, what makes your music worth people clicking on?

Authenticity...Real life!!! All I talk abt is our lives and our experiences. The s$%& we go through. Ups, downs, lefts, n rights. Can't help but to be able to relate to that

6. You have 1 person to thank, who would it be?

My big brothers...without them I'd have never picked the mic back up. Music always played a big part in my life but without them I wouldn't be in the position I am in now

7. What is your process for recording music ? I don't really have a set process for creating...the music tells me what to say a majority of the time. Concepts/Ideas all come from the deep recesses in my mind somewhere. As far as recording goes we rough draft every song before it ever goes to the studio

8. Any upcoming projects or singles fans should be getting ready for this year? SHOWS ALL SUMMER AND THE REST OF THE YEAR!!! My first album REIGN OF FIRE was releases on 12/1/21 and we're continuing to push that album and release new videos

9. What keeps you motivated and on path towards your goals for music?

Again the art...wanting to contribute to people having quality music to listen to. Something out of the ordinary that doesn't just follow whatever trend is popping right now

10. What impact do you want to have on the world?

To show that no matter who u are, what you've experienced, or where you're from u can definitely change the world! We all have a voice USE IT TO MAKE THIS PLACE WE CALL HOME BETTER!!!

11. What's your best collaboration experience with another artist or producer?

LMAO...Lor Jamo renegaded one of the songs on my album, Shylo n ODawg always come through as far as artists go...Fantum.Productions and Tez Dissabanger basically almost got us with our own unique sound. I love working with them

12. Who does all of your cover art or do you make your own?

A mix of ppl from myself in the beginning stages, to Mega_the_creator, my newest artwork/logo came from across the Atlantic. My man JR GRAPHIX tightened me up

13. Who makes most of your beats or production? is our in house producer...he has his hand on just abt everything Deadline Records puts out

14. What can we expect next from you in 2022?

SHOWS, SHOWS, SHOWS...We're starting an artist showcase where people can get there music heard. My 2nd album is in the works titled " The Baltimore Sun Vol. 1". I have a movie roll coming up as well. Just staying busy and steady working
