We caught up with Shawty to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.
Let’s get to it…
What I enjoy the most is most likely the freedom.
I love to be able to make what I want when I want, & with whom I want.
Complete creative freedom is what I want as an artist at all times, honestly.
I use an audio interface with my computer or I record on my phone with my Beats headphones.
And I have someone engineer my vocals.
I only go to the studio for fun because I have one of my own.
I’ve never performed live!
So for now, I’d say I enjoy just the creation and the art.
I love to embrace the fact that I have this gift that not many people have.
I want people to say where it could be better.
‘Mid’ is the term I’d prefer…
As I have much better stuff in store!
I don’t typically just release music, I have to sit and plan a release.
As I have a tendency to hold on to music and place it in a vault, per se.
I won’t ever just finish something then release it…
As room for improvement could always be there.
I have my 6th studio album ‘With Or Without You ‘releasing on June 4th, 2021.
And I should be releasing my next single, ‘Sick Of You’ on Friday, February 17th, 2021.
I would love to shoot, or have a video done for my 2020 single ‘Thought Wrong’…
I have a whole vision planned for this song as it’s one of my personal favorite songs!
Diablo The Rockstar, Default, Massiimassio, Makoto, Vakame, Lilonit, really my whole rap collective, VV.
As for producers…
I would love to work with Internet Money…Nick Mira specifically.
I feel like I’m driven by past experiences.
Any pain that was dealt to me is put into passion within my music.
I try to embrace it!
And wear my heart on my sleeve…especially while recording.
Goodbye & Good Riddance by Juice WRLD is one of my favorite albums of all time…
It influenced practically my whole style!
Nothing Was The Same by Drake is probably another one of my favorite albums of all time.
And as for the 3rd…
It would probably be Hellboy by Lil Peep.
Shoutout to DiabloTheRockstar…
My close collaborator, friend, and engineer.
