We caught up with Burr to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.

Let’s get to it…

What do you enjoy most about being an independent musician?

The grind!

I love the “put in the work” part because you get to see & feel your growth.

It’s crazy dope to look back & see how far you came on your own.

If we were to peek over your shoulder, what does your studio look like? What gear do you typically use?

I have a specific studio I usually use since I’ve been in Arizona…HK studios.

Shoutout to my guy Eljay…

He’s been keeping me sounding right the whole time!

Do you enjoy recording and production, or do you like performing live and promotion?

I think I like the recording & production part more.

I love going into a session not knowing how a song would sound and turn out…

Then playing it back after recording & being shocked at how good it sounds…most of the time! lol!

I love live performances too depending on how I’m feeling.

There’s been times where I was going through it & I had a performance, & getting on that stage was a big help.

That’s definitely an area I wanna get better in though.

How would you want people to describe your latest project in a tweet?

Real Rap.

Do you plan your music releases, or do you just finish a song and release it?

I used to finish a song and then want to release it as soon as possible.

I think it works! Depending on where you are in your career…

I do a lot of planning these days.

What can we expect from you within the next 6 months? Any releases planned? Future gigs?

I plan on releasing my next full project maybe in May with a release party.

And I think I’ll have an EP out before then!

I’m also planning on a music video that I think could turn me up another level…

It’s about to be up! I been working & I want everyone to know!

Are you planning any videos for your music? Are there any videos we need to know about!?

Yea like I said, I’m in the process of putting my next video together.

I’m getting the location & people & crew put together to make it something special.

I really feel good about this one!

And I have my “Paradise” music video out on YouTube right now.

Love that video! Shouout to ShotByKadeem…

Easily my favorite song of mine at the moment.

Are there any collaborations, past or future, that you are excited about?

There’s a lot of producers I want to work with!

I’m not too pressed on it right now, because I know I’ll get my chance with them.

Hitboi going dumb right now! My brother back home, he makes beats and I’m excited to see where his sound goes.

So I’ll of course be on his beats!

If you hear “DeboYouMadeDat”, you know what time it is!

And me & my other brother from back home, Zbo, will have a lot coming up…

We already got mad songs together!

Y’all gotta tap in wit’ bro too!

What inspires your creative process?

Probably my own personal situations & life…

And what I’ve seen & been through!

I think it’s hard for any of us to express ourselves openly.

The music gives me a way to do that in the most creative & personal way.

And thinking of where I could be is also hella inspirational.

What are your top three favorite albums of all time and why those albums?

Ahhhh lol I hate this question! It’s wayyyy too many to count…

But I’d say if I had to pick 3…

Lil Wayne – Tha Carter III
Drake – Views
And this one is probably unexpected af but…
Eminem – The Marshall Mathers LP.

Who makes up your existing creative team?
i.e. photographers, video directors, social media managers, paid media specialists, stylists, hair, and makeup…Name someone who you think deserves a special shout-out?

Shoutout to the team man!

They know who they are!

Everybody’s about to know soon!

Where can we find you on social media?

You can find me everywhere @BurrSSO.
