TrillBazz - Interview
1. Tell us your rap name and where are you from?
My Artist name is Trillbazz. Trill means truth and real and that's what I believe I represent. Bazz is for my childhood nick-name 'Seabass' , just dropped the S's and added the Z's.
I was born in Belleville, New Jersey. I came to Florida at a very young age, around 3 months old. I've been living in Hialeah ever since.
2. What made you start making music?
Music is something that always interested me. The leap of faith was in my freshmen year at High School. I did a remix to Ab-Soul's "Illuminate". It was pretty trash but what can you expect for a first song.
3. Who are your influences?
My dad has been playing guitars for 55+ years, so every now and then he turns on his amplifier and goes crazy tearing up the electric guitar. Having no other option but to listen to the music in my own house, I always felt like that's what gave me the most appreciation in music.
4. What is your take on the underground rap scene right now?
I feel like most of the people around are focused on trying to be the best. Too much competition.
5. What are your goals for 2019 regarding music?
I'm trying to have my first mixtape and music video out this year, preform as much as possible, and keep progressing as a musician.
6. You have 1 person to thank who would it be?
Only people i'm grateful for is my Collective over at Creatives Only. Beautiful and talented individuals.
7. What is your process for recording music ?
Since I live in an apartment and rely on myself for music, I have my own recording setup in my room.
8. Any upcoming projects or singles fans should be getting ready for?
I intend on dropping my first mixtape "Zilly The Kid" on all platforms. A project with Dj Ob1, Krazy 8, features / singles for Creatives Only songs. If i have enough time, I will try to drop another mixtape this year called "Trillbazzilonians"

My favorite part about being a musician is the fact that others around the world appreciate what I make. I enjoy making people feel good.
10. What impact do you want to have on the world?

11. What are your ambitions with music is this just a hobby or is this a full blown 24/7 lifestyle your embodying?
