How would you define the word “success”?
Success is when you have accomplished all goals that you are trying to achieve.
What is your biggest career embarrassment?
Our Biggest Career embarrassment is when we performed at a Webster Hall showcase. This was our first performance and we were certain that we were ready to put on a show. When we performed we did exactly that, we gave the audience a sound that they never heard and they loved it! Based on the response from the crowd we assumed 1st place was ours hands down. However when it was time for judges to choose the winner, Ironically we didn’t even place 1st, 2nd nor 3rd. We thought that we would at least place in the competition, but 1st place 2nd place and 3rd place was all taken. Despite not placing, we were well respected by everybody who came out too that event and based off our performance it was clear that we have a bright future ahead of us!
Most memorable moment in creating one of your records?
One of the most memorable moments for me (Dolo Youngest Brother) was when I made “Its Friday & I Just Got Paid”. On a Friday morning I went into the studio and started making a song and the music was Jamming! By the time I completed the song that morning, I knew I had too do something with it because the music was something special. The whole concept of the song came about because i use too always have too walk too my job on friday just to pick up my check but this was the 1st friday my direct deposit finally went thru! When i got back home from work that day I let my brothers listen too the instrumental and they loved it! Then I started chanting “Its Friday & I Just Got Paid” and that was the hit in the making! That same day we completed the song.
who has been the most influential person in your music career?
Who is your celeb look-alike?
Definitely the three stoogers. Cant you see the resemblance? lol
what was your first job?
Well… our first jobs we all had were together. We were drummers for an african dance program. This program was a summer program for dancers who wanted to prolong their dance experience. At the end of the session, the dancers had to put on a showcase.
What is your worst Fear?
Failure; but with our music that will speak for itself i don’t think i would even need to be concerned or worried about failure.
What is your guilty pleasure?
I don’t think I have one. I love woman but thats nothing to be guilty about.
What artists would you love to work with?
I would like to work with 50 cent, Kanye West, T.I., Mobb Deep, Bruno Mars, Usher, OutKast, Jamie Foxx, Timberland, Busta Rhymes and Juelz Santana just to name a few. I would really like to produce and make records with other artists in different genres of music.
Any advice or lessons learned in the music industry that you would like to
share with other indie artists?
Believe in yourself because other people will always try to discourage you. Grind hard and Thank God for your blessings and keep working. Anything that you want to be the best takes time and work, just stay diligent at it regardless of what others say.
What is the number one thing you hope people get out of your music?
I hope people embrace the quality of music and sound that is embedded in our music. When you have great music, thats what supports the lyrics and ultimately what makes the song. We are not just artist but we are musicians who have studied several cultural arts from childhood up until now. Everything we have learned we have incorporated into our own production. D-Limitz is not just about one style, we are diverse & we make hits in several genres and we expect people too see that this is what we love! We are going too bring a new era of music and our 1st album will be strictly D-Limitz Production!
