Artist Interview: Ziggy Hendrix
Tell us about yourself and your music
I’m from a small city called Kinston North Carolina. Im 20 years old. My music describes my everyday lifestyle from being in the streets, drugs, and growing up without a father.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My newest release is called “The Takeover”. Its basically about how I feel like I should have a certain rep and the struggles and hardships of the city I live in.
What inspired you to write this release?
My city inspired me to write this project. All of the killings thats been going on recently. Having losing a bestfriend and a cousin to the streets I had to let the world know that I have a story to tell.
Any plans to release a video?
yes very soon
Any plans to hit the road?
right now I don’t have a manager so until then I’m on my own for the moment but maybe in the near by future
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
My adlibs in my music are what stands me out. Also nowadays more artists like: Lil Yachty, Ugly God, Lil Uzi Vert, and 21 Savage are getting most recognition so I’m trying to be way different from them and talk about the struggles and hardships that I’ve been through and still going through.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Lately I’ve been listening to Travis Scott and Meek Mill.
Tell us about your passions
My family. I finally got me a stable job and I make sure that my mom don’t have to stress about paying the bills. I got a little sister that’s in highschool. I’m dedicated to make it with my music so that I can put her through college and get her out of this city.
What else is happening next in your world?
‘Im taking off with this music… that’s the only thing that’s happening next.
Thanks for an awesome interview, Christian!
