Interview with FTF Double A….
Where you from and tell me about the culture?
I’m from Memphis, Tn and we have a rich musical culture and it’s only getting better and better
Who are your musical influences?
As far as my sound, I don’t have any influences but I’m motivated by the success of rappers out of my city such as Yo Gotti, Moneybagg Yo, Etc.
How did you first find a passion with hip-hop?
I first found my passion for hip-hop when I was younger. My dad was really into writing, producing and recording music; so it was natural. I started off jay freestyling in my free time and trying to write, I recorded my first few songs around the ages 6 or 7 and I love it ever since.
What’s the Memphis sound?
The Memphis sound is up-tempo trap/crunk type music, dating all the way back to 3 6 Mafia, Playa Fly, etc.
What do you want to contribute to the city?
I want to bring a different sound and message to the city. It seems like everybody is following the same wave/trend, but I’m coming with something different, that’s why I feel like I can stand out from the crowd.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned about success?
The biggest lesson I’ve learned about success is that you have to have work ethic to achieve it, stay dedicated, and that “success is the enemy of our god-given potential,” I have that quote tattooed on my left forearm.
What’s next for you this year and what you look forward to in 2021?
For the rest of this year I’m going to put money behind my single “Brand New” because I truly believe it is a hit and can make a big impact on the world in a positive way. And for 2021, I look forward to success. I feel like this time next year I’ll be on a whole new level as far as my music career and success.
