OCCUPATION: Visual / Recording Artist
LOCATION: New York, NY
WHAT’S YOUR HUSTLE: I created my own record label in college and years later, I’m releasing my major debut album. It’s officially my transition into the big leagues. I love it!
WHAT DOES YOUR HUSTLE MEAN TO YOU: My hustle is life or death. I’ve had to go through some major bullshit for this and if I fail then I might as well just not be alive. It’s a bit extreme, but I believe you have to have that type of determination to make in this industry. So many come and go and I want to make sure that I have firm footing to last the test of time.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ONLY THREE TOOLS FOR YOUR HUSTLE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE: A computer, Midi Keyboard, Microphone and I’m good to go.
A WORD OF ADVICE TO WANNABE HUSTLERS IN YOUR FIELD: In the music industry, it’s all to common to find people that want to be molded or people who want to mold you. My best advice is to mold yourself into what you want. It’s the only way you’ll find satisfaction and true worth. It also wouldn’t hurt to have a day job. Not everyone can score sponsorship, and you’ll need to find funding from somewhere.
