Artist Interview: Sleepfuture
Tell us about yourself and your music
My real name is Taylor Sabol
I’m 20 years old and am the most popular rap artist in rockledge Florida, my city. I go by “Sleepfuture” in April of 2015, I did some work for Snoopdogg’s & Jt the Bigga figgas movie company “Trapflix. After over 4 shoutouts from Snoop-Dogg I gained a massive fan base over Instagram. Though I began rapping when I was 14 I never released any super old music from back then. However the oldest song I’ve got is called “jacked up life” which is on my SoundCloud. All of my social medias are @sleepfuture I have 3 note books every page full of lyrics written by me. My goal is to do a song every single day in 2017 and release it to SoundCloud.
“Why I started rapping” – it was around 2:45 in the morning & note: this was after I quit rapping at the age of 14 I was 17 by this time. It was real late in the morning I was home alone and I woke up from a terrible dream of me being famous and then getting killed. There was a spirit/ghost in front of my eyes. Skin as white as snow. Bluish visible glowing veins in her arms. And crystal blue eyes & white hair. Said this is your destiny to get famous and die. Then I passed out in horror and fell back to sleep . Woke up and I began rapping. I’ve got a fan base of 121,000+ Instagram followers. 1.1million SoundCloud plays.

What inspired you to write this release?
The last day of 2016, I told myself I would release a song every single day in 2017. All the music on my SoundCloud is brand new all of it until you scroll down to the music I’ve released in 2016 and the past years. My inspiration is the 1/1000000 chance at fame.

As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I don’t sound like no one else. I don’t do what they do either. Have ghost writers. I write my own songs and would never accept help writing a song.

Myself. Constantly so I can always improve.
