Tell me a little bit about where you’re from?

I grew up in Virginia Beach, VA but moved to New Orleans when I was in high school. New Orleans is a city with a lot of history and culture. The city is known for it’s food and it’s music and both for good reason. They’re always looking for a reason to party.

 What is the local music scene there like?

The music scene in New Orleans is diverse. When most people think about New Orleans music they think of Jazz, Bounce, No Limit and Cash Money. However, over the last few years there’s been a resurgence of lyric-driven Hip Hop with more sample-based “boom bap” style beats. There’s a lot of talented, creative artists in NOLA and it’s very competitive.

 How did you get started making music?

I got started making music because my older brother started rapping and making beats with his friends. My brother and I are pretty close so I basically picked up on whatever he was doing. I started rapping and making beats when I was in middle school. We started recording songs onto cassette tapes using a karaoke machine and quickly progressed to ProTools. I’m 32 now so I’ve been rapping for just about 20 years at this point. I’ve continued making music because it’s somewhat therapeutic. I like the challenge of making something better than my previous songs. At this point I rap to see if I can impress myself.

 Tell me about the single or video we are going to be working on? 

The single/video we are working on is called Bambino. It’s the title track off of my upcoming album Bambino. The entire album is produced by Burn&loot.

 Any features? Who produced the song? Any additional songwriters?

Burn&Loot is featured on the song and he also produced the song.

Who directed the video?

Burn&loot directed and edited the video.

What album is this song on?

My upcoming album Bambino.

 What are your plans for the next few months?

I’m planning to release the album along with a few more singles and another video. I also have another album finished so be on the lookout for more music in 2020.

Have you ever been on radio? If so what stations and when?

No I’ve never been on the radio. Some of the music produced by Burn&loot has been played on New Orleans radio station WWOZ.

 What shows or touring do you have planned?

I don’t have any shows or tours planned at the moment.

 Is there anything else that you want to tell the fans ?

TySoul x Maine the Medicine – Medicine for the Soul LP Interview & Serenity Video

TySoul and Maine the Medicine announce the release of their collaborative project titled ‘Medicine for the Soul.’ The 14-track album features Popko, Sweetness, Daniel Rosler, Suspect, Lambo Lo, Paulie, and GTS.  Check out our latest interview detailing the album along with visuals for the leading single “Serenity.”

MJ: You hit fans with something different and innovative with this new album “Medicine for the Soul”. You curated a captivating blend of R&B and Hip Hop. Talk about the album and the mindset behind creating it.

Stream/download “Medicine for the Soul” here on preferred platforms

TySoul: Both Maine and myself already collaborated on multiple records before this album, and everything we made together came out great. So, we thought, why not make a full project together, and we did just that. Myself being a Chris Brown fan, I wanted to add a new school R&B flare to the album, while having Maine add his old-school influences along with his amazing lyricism.

Maine: being from New York, Hip-Hop and R&B go hand and hand. Like Nas and Lauryn, Meth and Mary, Father MC with Jodeci, and the list goes on and on. We just wanted to bring that feeling back.

MJ: You enlisted an elite selection of producers for the album, with an incredible ability to orchestrate soundscapes that heighten the raw emotion and impeccable lyricism. Talk about that, as well as how you two linked up.

TySoul: We originally linked up nearly a decade ago from a mutual contact, we never collaborated at the time, but we did a few shows together. Years later Maine called me to come into JL Studios to do a hook for Mercy Gang and after that, it was a wrap…

Maine: We worked with a handful of producers including Know- it beats and Da Leadgeon who helped us blend that Hip Hop and R&B with today’s twist. Plus, we both get busy with the pen!

MJ:  Was the goal of the album to expand your fan base by stepping out of the box? Was it to display your versatility as artists and your agility to steer in different lanes?

TySoul: I think both of us somewhat stepped out of our comfort zones for the better. I was able to experiment with a more commercial sound rather than the old-school R&B type influences that were prevalent in my first album “Two-Sided.” I feel that we both displayed our versatility but also stayed true to our artistry.

Maine: I feel as an MC I should be able to adapt to any genre while still being me.

MJ:  What single off the album do you anticipate taking off both on charts and with listeners/fans?

TySoul: I think that “Addicted” or “Don’t You” are two of our more heartfelt records. Both talk about relationship-based content but also have an upbeat flow and awesome production.

Maine: “Serenity” is going to make a statement because it deals with some crucial issues going on in the world now. “Addicted”, “Old Thing Back”, and “Move Ya Body” are extraordinarily strong records as well.

MJ: Take a minute to reflect and share anything else about “The Medicine for the Soul”

TySoul: This project personally helped me to experiment with rapping more. Maine pushed and encouraged me to spit a few bars, and I was able to rap a few good verses on this album. Even through this pandemic, we stayed motivated and in touch, which enabled us to finish this project strong and in time when we were able to return to the studio.

Maine: We want people and our fans to get that great feeling listening to our music. We’re just trying to put authentic Hip Hop and R&B back on the map.

Special thanks to Dan Rosler, Amanda Rogan, Lambo Lo, Suspect, Gus, and Paulie…#RIPHefty
