Artist Interview: Johnny Knox
Tell us about yourself and your music
My name is Johnny Knox from College Park, GA I am 27 years old and also the CEO of Guerrilla Mob Empire. My music basically is a reality of my life (past & present) that a lot of people around would be able to relate to it in some way.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My current single is “The Life” which is available on all major streaming sites (Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, etc) and my new EP “The Black Charles Luciano EP” which will be release spring 2017.
What inspired you to write this release?
My current single “The Life” was inspired base off of how the current state of the rap game. The main rappers who are in the game have the consumers think it’s ok to beef with other people without having to worry about the consequences. Where I’m from it is totally the opposite so I had to let it be known that a lot of us don’t condone the wwe aspect of the rap game.
Any plans to release a video?
Yes. It will be a video to “The Life” coming soon.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes. When I release “The Black Charles Luciano EP” I will go on on a nationwide tour.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
Just by making sure it is authentic as possible. Because when people hear it they will hear the pain & the realness of the message is giving.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Honestly. Myself and few other artists like migos, nas, Travis Scott, chance the rapper, drake, and The Weeknd.
Tell us about your passions
Life in general. All the possibilities you can achieve anything you put your mind to.
What else is happening next in your world?
Working on & releasing “The Black Charles Luciano EP” then making me the biggest artist of my generation and “Guerrilla Mob Empire” one of biggest brands ever!
