First off thanks for the interview

*Thank You for taking the interest I appreciate all the support I receive.

You’ve been building a good buzz up for a while. You just released the Sunday Afternoon EP for free. I really liked the concept behind the project. What made you decide to put a project like this together and did you really record the entire thing on a Sunday?

It started off the intro track. My engineer really liked the way it sounded and he said “We have to do a whole project like this, just one take every track.” So we picked out the beats and Sunday Afternoon came about. It was all recorded by the end of that night. We would’ve actually released it Sunday but we got the cover art around midnight.

The Sunday Afternoon EP just came out but rumor around the blogosphere is that you are readying your next project The Date Tape. Can you tell me what people can expect from that project and when people can expect to hear it?

The Date Tape is produced entirely by Cookin’ Soul, a Dj /Production Trio out of Spain. They’ve done a lot of work with Dj Drama, produced for Soulja Boy, Nicki Minaj ETC. The Tape is step by step into a terrible relationship. It’s sort of like nothing anyone’s heard before. A lot of people do the women and love topics but not this way. It’ll be released through 2dopeboyz.com sometime next week.

What do you think the most important thing has been to you being able to build up a good buzz?

The most important thing is that I can finally be heard by more people. First starting I was getting maybe 300-500 downloads and a few posts on the smaller blogs. Now my projects are up in the thousands Nation and worldwide it’s a great feeling.

The internet really offers artists a lot more ways to get their name out, but sometimes there is an overall saturation of music. How do you stand out from the pack? What are you doing you think sets you above all the up and comers?

What sets me above a lot of the new cats is creativity and consistency. A lot of artists are afraid to come out of the box or are put into one. Even though there are a lot of different comparisons to me and other new acts no one can say I sound like one or any specific artist. I have a very different sound from anyone out now, a lot of people find it hard to believe I’m from sac.

To anyone who hasn’t heard your music what do you think would be a good song to start out on? Or which of your releases would be the best starting point and why?

I think the best project to hear would be Hot N Ready with Lee Bannon. It’s that grimy, basement, boom bap sound from early ’90 that no one really does anymore. Very classic mix tape.

What one album would you credit to being the album that made you say “I want to make hip hop albums one of these day”?

Reasonable Doubt would probably be the most influential even though there are a lot of albums that contribute to my starting to rhyme. The first person that ever made me write was my mom. A lot of my style is derived from her.

Ideally where do you see yourself in the music business next year? What would you like to accomplish by then?

By next year I see myself closer to signing a deal or touring. I would like to accomplish buying a Dodge Challenger by my 21st Birthday and hopefully in talks with a label, that’d be a real goal for me.

I guess that about wraps it up. Thanks for taking the time to answer the questions. Do you have any closing comments you’d like to make?

*Just my shout outs, Common Culture Clothing, TUS, Lady Blue, Rufio, Jonathan Lowell, be on the lookout for my new projects dropping, follow the twitter @chuuweetus and big shout out to Sound in the Signals for the interview.
