Artist Interview: Bacardi K
Tell us about yourself and your music
Bacardi K here coming straight out of Raleigh NC. I’ve been making music since I was 15, I’m 23 now. When I first started doing music I thought it was just something to do for fun. It wasn’t till I was like 17 when ppl started to tell me I needed to take this music thing more serious. The music I make is just music I would want to hear. But I have people that ive watched coming up that influenced the way I made/make songs.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release is Trap Spot. Trap Spot is really a untold story about my past. I know when most ppl here the name Trap Spot they think drugs and a bando. But no it’s more like a set up. And The story I’m telling is basically the build up before the set up even happened .
What inspired you to write this release?
Nothing really inspired me to do this song. The flow and word just went good with the beat .
