Here we will share our experience of interviewing a buzzing star-J Trix on his success as a rapper!
If you have missed out on the rap, then let us share the link-
Still can’t stop drooling over this!
1. We can see that you used rapping as a way to bring forward your feelings. How do it feel that it has helped you to bring yourself out?
Well, every track that I write is about a certain feeling/experience and every time I experience something worth writing, it gives me the inspiration to develop it into a new song. So, it helps me a lot in describing myself and my surroundings.
2. What do you feel about people who are not that much into the rapping culture of music? Or how you feel to persuade them?
I think people aren’t into rap music because they haven’t been exposed to the brighter and the meaningful side of rap/hip-hop and the majority who know about it, only know of it as a party culture or something which is not to be taken seriously. We hope we can show them the real face of rap and hip-hop and educate them about it and I’m sure that once they get engrossed they won’t be able to stay away for sure!
3. Your biggest inspiration.
My biggest inspirations are rappers like J Cole, Macklemore, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, 2pac and the list goes on but when it comes to writing a song or creating new music it’s all about my experiences, surroundings, events and the people around me.
4. When did you start off with rapping?
I started rapping when my elder brother introduced me to western music and made me listen to ‘In The End’ by Linkin Park in 8th Standard and the part which attracted me the most was Mike Shinoda’s rap on that. Then I gradually researched about the rap and the hip hop culture and the more I dug deeper the more excited and curious I became!
5. What was your biggest hurdle faced?
The biggest hurdle I faced and I still face is to get my music heard by a bigger audience so I that I can get reviews from all around the nation/established artists and get even better in my craft and educate people about Hip hop and rap.
6. What do you want to say to the people who share the similar interest like you?
. The motto is to keep working hard and playing smart in distributing your music, being consistent and getting better with time! Major key alert! Haha!
7. Would you like to say something about the track which is selected as the “Track of the Week” on BBC Asian Network on the Bobby Friction show?
Yeah! So we wanted to bring the old school vibe back to the scene and we couldn’t think of a better sound than raw drum beats. So, the track is produced by SubSpace who is one of the finest producers in the city , and I told him that I wanted to do something with that and he produced the instrumental of this track in an hour or two. I started writing my verse to it and when the track was ready, we knew that we wanted to have some sick breaking moves in the video. So, I called up Breakguruz who are one of the finest breaking crews in India and I made them listen to the track and they said they were ready to do it and thus came the video of “Dekhte Reh Jaoge”.
8.Share your experiences about the BBC interview. Such a wide exposure at such an age.
We are grateful for all the love and support that Bobby Friction showed us. We have been getting positive feedback from all over and I’m sure this will help in uplifting the Rap/Hip-hop scene in Kolkata even more! We’ll try our best to be a regular in Bobby Friction’s radio shows. That’s whatsup!
We wish him all the best for such a success and more to look forward to.
