The Future is Beautiful – Interview with Rapsody
These are all artists that have influenced me in one way or another, and continue to. With these musical influences in your life, what is it that influences your music today?
Life. The things I experience, the people in it and around it, the music, and memories.
Speaking of memories, Kooley High was truly a magical moment in music. What’s one of the best memories you have from being with the group?
I’m definitely still in the group. We are getting ready to work on our first official album, executive produced by 9th Wonder. Some of my best memories are all of us in the studio working on projects. We would do a lot of recording all throughout the night until the morning. There was a lot of laughter, and Sinopsis falling asleep at the computer. We just get together and have so much fun doing what we love. This next go round will be no different, and I look forward to creating more good memories.
I watched Napoleon Wright II’s documentary about you guys. It was such an incredible story, a simple and honest look at a group of friends just doing what they love. What were your feelings while shooting the One Day documentary ?
I was excited. I thought it was a good idea (I can’t remember who came up with it), and it felt good to tell all about ourselves and lives outside and in music. It was different and I enjoyed making that documentary.
You’ve got so much confidence in what you do and who you are. I wonder, was there ever a moment in your life when you thought, “There’s no way I can do this. There’s too much pressure”?
No, never. I never let a “no” or obstacle stop me. For one, I had good people around me. Secondly, you have to know that there is always a way to do what you want to do in life. You just have to want it that bad, and be patient, and have tough skin. You have to find a way, that works for you, to make it work. Everyone’s path is different.
