Who or what got you into Hip hop?
2 PAC got me into hip hop, but Eminem made me fall in love with it more👌🏽
If You were not into Hip hop, what other genre’s would you do?
R&B , I just like RnB because it fills my heart with love
What is The Good and The Worst thing about Hip hop according to Your Experiences?
The Good thing about hip hop is that it has many followers and it’s not that difficult to rap on a well prepared beat.
Worst thing is Being underground, people who have that power to uplift and take you to where you want to be hardly notice your work because they have no time for you.
Do you think Chavani Hip hop is Losing direction or it is on the right track?
Well I’ll say 5% is on the right track
What mistakes do you think upcoming artists do that makes their music not to get a breakthrough?
It’s like we doing this music thing for fun, lyrics with no massage… that makes us to end up nowhere, people learn nothing but violence through our music, we don’t even support each other like One Fam. Any way big up👊🏾 to those who are doing a great work
Your first Hit “Chavani”, What was the Motive behind it?
Well I was sick n tired of seeing younger people destroying their lives by abusing alcohol, drugs, unwanted pregnancies and the killing that was taking place. It was so sad 😔 and it made me wrote the track and entitled it 👉🏽 “Chavani” that became a hit.
Is there another hit bigger than “Chavani” that you’ve released in your music journey?
Lol of course Yes and they are many
