Rising Star: JD The Junior

JD-the-junior

http://welcome2thea.com
Name of Artist/Band and where are you from?

My Name is JD The Junior. I’m an upcoming Hip-Hop/Rap Artist from the Maryland and Washington D.C Area. I was born in Capitol Heights, Maryland before moving to PG County, Maryland, which is where I currently reside.

How did you break into the music industry?

I would say that I “broke” into the music industry with a lot of perseverance and my “heavy hustle”. Which is one of the first few songs that caught people’s attention about my work. I love music that much and I’m determined for some good to come out of all of the hard work that I’ve put into this.

Choose one adjective to describe your music style?

Compelling is the first word that comes to mind, in regards to my music style.

Do you write your own songs? If so, what are your songs about and where do you draw your inspiration?

Yes, I write all of my own verses and songs. I’m influenced by and try to produce a wide variety of music. I try to appease all audiences instead of one group of people but still stay in the terms and regards of good Hip-Hop/Rap & a little R&B music. My inspiration I would say would come from my own thoughts and taste of music as well as all of the different music, artists and songs I listen to today.

What project are you currently promoting and is it available for purchase?

The project I’m currently promoting right now is currently my biggest one; my mix tape and album DMV (Dreams, Motivation, Victory). The mix tape version is available on LiveMixtapes.com, which consist of 17 tracks. The shorten album version is available on sites such as iTunes, Amazon and More. Again, this is my biggest release yet but I do plan to have more music and other things going and coming out from me in the near future.

Are you looking for an independent label deal or a major label deal?

I’m leaning towards more of a major label deal, but I would be content with either one just as long as I feel like it’s the best place and fit for me. Alongside, that it’s a place where I can learn and expand but also bring something to the table as well that benefits the company and me.

How would you define the word “success”?

Accomplishing every thing you ever wanted to or dreamed of, especially if someone tells you that you can’t do it. Nothing is impossible.

What is your biggest career embarrassment?

So far, other than the first music project I ever put out in life; I would say my biggest career embarrassments was performing at a showcase in Atlanta. It wasn’t my best performance and I did not exactly bringing the house down. Also, just learning from my past mistakes in this business through the trail and error method.

Most memorable moment in creating one of your records?

I do a lot of my music recording at Listen Visions Studios in Washington D.C. when I’m in the area. As I began to come in more and lay down tracks, some of the artists and the people who work there really took a liking into my music. Weather if it was my lyrics, my flow or just my overall presence and outlook on music. They began to ask questions or give their comparisons of whom I may sound like or should work with. J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Wale, T.I, and even Cassidy were some of the names brought up in these discussions.

Who has been the most influential person in your music career? 

Outside of an established artist, I would say the most influential person is me; alongside everybody who ever gave me advice as I been on this road of making music and getting it out here.

Who is your celeb look-alike?

The one that I’ve heard the most is Soulja Boy. I don’t believe that.

what was your first job?

I worked with my parents from time to time on their food trailer selling food to the community at local events as a little side hustle. Other than that, I never had a job a day in my life. I’ve been seeking employment since I was 13. Right now, music and school are my occupations.

What is your worst Fear?

My worse fear is failure, that’s why I try so hard to avoid it.

What is your guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is my girl in sexy work clothes or a nice dress.

What artists would you love to work with?

I would love to work with Wale, J Cole, T.I, Fuze The MC, Kendrick Lamar, MGK and a couple more artists that I could name. Like I said, I like a variety of music and like to produce it as well.

Any advice or lessons learned in the music industry that you would like to share with other indie artists?

You have to watch out sometimes whom you invest your money, energy and time into. Also, don’t let anybody tell you can’t do something or try to change you into something that you’re not to please EVERYBODY or somebody else.

What is the number one thing you hope people get out of your music?

I hope not only do they take a liking into my music that I work so hard on and produce, but they also understand me as well as a man and as an artist.

Where can people get in touch with you?

You can follow me on twitter @_JDTheJunior_. You can follow @JetMajorEnt as well. You can find my music on many different sites, you can go on google or youtube “JD The Junior”; you can find me on Reverbnation as well.

How did you break into the music industry?

We broke in thru the back door. A lot of people didn’t want to give us a chance to be heard. So if there is a will, there is a way.

Choose one adjective to describe your music style?

Dynamic

Do you write your own songs? If so, what are your songs about and where do you draw your inspiration?

Absolutely.  All of our music and lyrics are generated within D-Limitz. The songs that we compose express our personal experiences which allows our audience too relate and gravitate towards us! We intend on spreading a positive message and strongly believe “The Sky’s the Limit”! Live your life, and enjoy it to the fullest! You don’t need to change who you are so that others can accept you.  Be yourself, keep your head up and you will appreciate what life has to offer.

What project are you currently promoting and is it available for purchase?

We are currently working on our Album called “Sky’s The Limit (We D-Limitz)” but we are promoting 4 of our singles from the album.  They are “Its Friday & I Just Got Paid”, “Sky’s The Limit (We D-Limitz)”, “Work Your Body Out” and “Thank You”.

Are you looking for an independent label deal or a major label deal?

We are looking to continue putting out hit records, whether thats with an independent or a major label deal

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?

My Brothers

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!

RISING STAR: Toyko Trendz


http://welcome2cali.com

Name of Artist/Band and where are you from?

I go by the name of Tokyo Trendz and I’m from Hampton, Virginia.

How did you break into the music industry?

I haven’t broke into the industry yet, but i got started by being around other artist who were pursuing music when I was younger and I guess it inspired me to want to create music of my own. I also played musical instruments so I figured why not give it a try. It started out as me doing it just for fun until i decided to get serious with it in my late teen years. That’s when i decided I really wanted to pursue music because I have the talent and a real passion for it along with people who support and relate to me.

Choose one adjective to describe your music style?

Eclectic. . .

Do you write your own songs? If so, what are your songs about and where do
you draw your inspiration?

I am the writer to all my songs and they’re about a variety of things. I commonly focus on the things that go on in my life such as promoting the fact that it’s cool to be you own self and not like everyone else, women, art, positive thoughts, bad thoughts, knowing that no one is perfect and determination to succeed and get the finer things out of life. I get my inspiration from life, sound, art, nature, and sometimes movies that catch my attention.

What project are you currently promoting and is it available for purchase?

Right now I’m currently promoting my upcoming Ep that I’m working on which is entirely produced by DC producer Reggie Volume, that will be available for free download on my official website in mid February of 2013 along with a deluxe version of the Ep which will be available for purchase on Itunes and bandcamp.

Are you looking for an independent label deal or a major label deal?

It all depends what a major label has to offer me. If I can have the creative rights to my music along with various other things then I would be cool with joining a major label. If not, then I’ll stick with the independent route and establish more contacts to network with in order to continue pushing my music and movement in the right direction.

How would you define the word “success”?
Achievement, Accomplishment, Victory, Self-Determination

What is your biggest career embarrassment?

My biggest career embarrassment. . . Haha. . I would have to say the time when I was performing on stage with one of my boys in front of a decent crowd of people and he knocked my mic out of my hand on accident causing  it to fly to other side of the stage. Shit was funny but we kept rocking out and still got love from the crowd with our energy and stage presence haha.

Most memorable moment in creating one of your records?

The most memorable moment I would have to say would be vibing out with other artist in the studio joking about something that happened in our lifes, then turning it into a solid song that people could all relate to.

Who has been the most influential person in your music career?

I would have to say Pharrell.He’s from Virginia as well. I admire the fact that he’s not afraid to branch out of his comfort zone and never puts himself in a box of the people he would work with. He’s done records for many people of many genres and that’s something that always stood out to me because I’m adapt to many styles of music and would like to also work with people of other musical genres while still maintaining my own sound.

Who is your celeb look-alike?

I personally believe I have my own distinct look but somebody told me I look like the lightskin kid from that New Boyz group that came out a few years back. Haha but I don’t see it.

what was your first job?

Haha. My first job was Taco Bell and i hated it. The free food was cool though.

What is your worst Fear?

My worst fear would be getting beat up by a midget haha.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Drawing naked women. I love art and I think a women’s body features are an amazing work of art. Haha

What artists would you love to work with?

Skateboard P, Andre 3 Stacks, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, M.I.A, Rick Ross, John Legend, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Little Dragon, Lana Del Ray

Any advice or lessons learned in the music industry that you would like to
share with other indie artists?

Believe in yourself. Copyright your music. Try getting distribution deals so you can push your music to as many markets and people as possible. Read every contract thoroughly and have a lawyer read over it if you have one before signing it. Know your shit because there’s a lot of janky ass cats in the music industry looking to get over on artist. Take the time to connect with people that become fans of your music because they’re the people who control whether your music prospers or fails. Don’t take shortcuts if longevity is what you’re looking for in the music industry because you can be on one day and gone the next if you don’t execute in the right way. Overall learn what works for you because there is no set way to make an impact in the music industry. The possibilities are endless.

What is the number one thing you hope people get out of your music?

Inspiration to be who YOU want to be and not the stereotype of what others think you have to be in order to be accepted in the world.

Where can people get in touch with you?
