What is your name and what city do you rep?
My name is FER1ST I'm from Memphis but I am in Georgia.
What is unique about you and your music?
I do Rap but also do pop.
What shaped your music?
Personal experiences and storytelling
When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
When I wrote some songs, I decided to record them. After that, I like the freedom of it so stayed with it.
What type of music do you listen to?
Everyone's music. I don't have a favorite song because I like all music.
Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?
That's none of my business. Lol
How do you prepare for your performances?
I just go out there and do it. If I have dances which I really miss and love, we would practice about 1 and a half in advance. Sometimes, two weeks before performing.
What ignites your (song) writing flow?
Beats... if I hear a good one... I'm writing.
What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
Spend time with my family. It's so important to me.
Success to you is…
Wealth, love, peace, and family.
What do you wish you were told when you first started rapping that you think would help artists starting out?
Stack your paper up. All the way up. Invest and Save.
Any upcoming projects?
Yes, I am opening for Ace Hood at the Furnace 41 in Georgia on Sept 15th. I also have shows coming up in Europe so I'm excited about that.
