Artist Interview: Bum$quad
Tell us about yourself and your music
I’m 19 from Charlotte NC. My brothers and I have been rapping for about 10 years. I am part of Bum$quad, a rap group me and my brothers made when I was about 17. We have already dropped three mixtapes with various styles of music. I wouldn’t compare our music anyone specific artist, but it has signs of Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, & J Cole.
Talk to us more about your latest release
We are currently working on Young Suave’s mixtape “Wanderer From Snow Lane”. It’s going to be a story like album ,but offered for free to our fans. We also released music every week, so you could say your latest releases are still being released. But our latest release isn’t what are fans is used to, but shows how many styles we really have.
What inspired you to write this release?
I was inspired by a girl I used to talk to who talked a big game, and this song was basically telling her what she was in for. Although the concept is obvious I still kept the lyrics somewhat clean by using a lot of innuedo to keep it somewhat commercial.
Any plans to release a video?
We have released a video for a single off of our second mixtape, but we just finished recording our “Focus” video. The song has been released and we have gotten good feedback on it. And the video is going to be entertaining and funny, but most of all turnt.
Any plans to hit the road?
Sadly with all of our schedules and making music, we plan to have to wait until we are on to start performing.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I give the feel they are in the studio with us, while also giving them a great end result.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Honestly the majority of the music I listen to is our own, but other than that Andre 3000, J Cole, Lil Wayne & Kendrick
Tell us about your passions
Living my life long enough to get right with God
What else is happening next in your world?
We are slowly promoting more videos and getting more subscribers on YouTube, so we are going to try to dominate that platform to make money to promote our music More
Thanks for an awesome interview, Ziggy!
