Artist Spotlight: Wicked

1.) What got you into making music?

My dad played the drums. I used to fall asleep beside the kick with him pounding on them. That was when I was real young. I’ve always loved music, it’s been a big part of my life my whole life. I’ve gone through alot of fucked up and crazy shit and music has always been there to help me through or escape. I’ve always been creative too and was into arts and sports. As a kid I had a couple guitars but I always wanted drums. I used to play drums for church services and at friends houses that played. In high school we used to smoke and kick it rappin and making beats on beat machines. I always wanted to produce and do something in music since I was a child. Probably about 12 years ago I bought the DAW Sony Acid and started making music with that but I got locked up and didn’t ever use it again once I got out from doing that bid. Fast forward some years and I find myself in Albuq., NM acting and I thought if I could pursue that and do it that I could pursue my dream of a career in music. So I went out and bought a laptop. My girl bought me a Dennon mixer for my birthday and I started messin around with it but I wanted to create so I hit up Guitar City and bought an Akai MPK 225. Ever since I been on it!

2.) What has been your best experience musically so far? 

I would say it was when I was in middle school and I got busted for some weed at school and was getting in allott of trouble in Ga so my step dad sent me up to be with my dad for the summer. He had some gigs at a Blues festival that ran the whole weekend. That weekend I got to be immersed in music and see my dad play on stage in front of all those people. I knew from then on I wanted to make music too. 
3.) Tell us about being  a rapper in your city? I guess it’s chill. I don’t put myself out there allot as a rapper but work more as a producer. I think of myself more as an artist than a rapper to be honest because I feel like I can be fluid with genres and styles. I havn’t been doing any shows lately. Coronavirus has everything fucked up at the moment. 

4.) What current projects do you have available ?

 Current Projects available are “Cali Ridin” feat. Spookout, “Dark Side”, “New New” w/ Aye Peru & Kilo Kosteno, and “Agarra Mi Pistola”. The video for “New New” should be dropping this week. I’m not sure of the exact day. I have several projects I gh artists Aye Peru, Aztro, Spookout, Kilo Kosteno, Nanno 666, Nostalgic, and GK Tha God.

5.) What are some wild stories you have experienced? 

Wild stories haha…. Shit, I could talk for hours about wild stories but most would be incriminating. I got crazy chain gang stories and street stories. I’ll give you a light one. So I used to hustle allot and I was coming back from picking up a quarter pound of Ice and my tire blew out on Highway 26. I was about 10 miles from the spot. If you know 26 in Middle Ga then you know that 12 ride that mafucker all day long! I wasn’t pulling over to the side of the road with my record and that much on me so I pushed it to the house on a flat tire 10 miles and luckily made it to the spot safe.  

6.) What shows have you done recently? 

I haven’t done any shows lately. All the venues have been mostly closed here because of the pandemic. 

7.)  What makes you standout as an artist? 

I think right now maybe the fact that I am mixing some genres and am authentic in who I am and who I portray. I think there is a lot of fake shit in the industry right now. I can’t rock with fake people or RATS!! 

8.) What are you’r up coming big moves to mention? 

As far as big moves I’ll let that be a surprise. I plan and make goals but I also live on a day to day basis. 
9.) What’s your social media handles?

 10.)Where can people find your music (links)?

10) Anything else you want to tell us about yourself as an artist? Nothing that I can think of at the moment. Oh I am working on an album at the moment but I don’t have a release date at the moment.
