How Ferrari Rick Became the Artist He is Today

Published

on

Lasruick Edmead, professionally known as the artist Ferrari Rick grew up in West Tampa. His stage name came from his dream of owning a Ferrari. His first mixtape back when he wasn’t taking rap too seriously was even called “Ferrari Dreamz” as a homage to the said ambition. 

At present, he is making himself known across several platforms such as YouTube and SoundCloud. But before he became the artist he is today, he had to go through a period of self-realization. 

“I switched my rap name plenty of times before I became Ferrari Rick. [It] just felt like that name was the right fit for me, and I’m never changing it again,” he said. 

Ferrari Rick started making music since he was 13-years-old. Now turning 22, the artist has taken rap more seriously than ever before and is grinding every day to get to where he wants to be. 

“I always loved listening to music. I started my career making music from a webcam at home and [then] I started getting interested in taking it seriously,” he said. 

The artist then began going to the studio to work on his music and has kept it going ever since then. 

Becoming a Better Artist 

One thing that Ferrari Rick considers as a success is his becoming a better artist than before. He became better at melodies and became a better rapper than before.

The artist is also proud of being able to expand his craft. 

“I learned [that] you got to stand on what you believe in [and] never give up. I almost quit music in 2018 because I felt like it was getting nowhere [but] then I just kept going and started seeing progress each day,” he said.  

2021 is His Year 

As he turns 22 this year, Ferrari Rick hopes that it’s the year when all of his hard work over the years finally pays off. 

“Most of my projects are on SoundCloud. [There’s] just a bunch of free music there for people to listen to but also I have some of my music on all platforms such as on Apple Music, Spotify, etc.,” Ferrari Rick said.

The artist has also just dropped a recent music video on YouTube and all platforms called “Truth Be Told,” and another video called “Thought I was cursed.” His goal for this year is to increase his following on all platforms so that he can have a larger audience with whom he can share his music. 
Ferrari Rick is also known as @volumegod on Instagram. You can also check him out on Twitter (@ferraririck2) or listen to music on YouTube.

How Family Influenced Earl Chang, AKA Change, To Get Started In Music

Published

on

To some extent, family influences certain parts of our lives such as our interests or even what we want to be in the future. 

Earl Chang, better known as the artist Change, knows how powerful family influence can be as it was the one that led him to start a career in the music industry. 

Born in 1988 in the Bronx, New York, Change grew up playing basketball had a heavy music influence from his father and uncles. 

“I was always around music at a young age. My uncle used to have a mic and like 1,000 massive speakers in his garage with a PA system and he’d go down there and play old reggae music and sing, dance and rap over them! There was something about watching them with the mic in there that grabbed me and never let go,” Change said.  

Now, he pursued his passion which allows him to do what he loves while creating a legacy of his own in music.  

Getting Introduced To Music 

When Change moved to New Jersey at a young age, he met Jmac, the friend who introduced him to recording music. They used to record on a computer with the microphone set up between the speakers. But now, he owns a recording studio in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. 

“I shoot music videos, engineer,  and, most importantly, remain an artist! I like to be in the studio a lot I feel like it’s home and that’s in any studio I’m comfortable I’m ready to work at any time,” Change said. 

Change is the kind of artist to make sure that his music is original and distinct from the others out there. 

In 2017, Change got together with his group, SGS the Movement. Since then, they have dropped a few projects together and a few solo projects. Change also recently signed to Mulla Gang the label under a production and management deal owned by Mack Mulla 

Putting In The Work 

At present, Change is working on his second EP titled “Never Too Late” which he plans on dropping at the end of the summer. 

He also just released a single titled “Mami” with Core from his group, SGS the Movement, and has just been featured on Mack Mulla’s latest single “Hater.” 

“My favorite part of making music is performing it! I think that’s why I enjoy making music and the opportunity to perform it and touch the people that are in the crowd make that connection,” Change said.

How Joseph Royal Continues To Improve As An Artist And Performer

Published

on

Originally a YouTuber who has gained 100,000 followers in a span of two years through videos that feature his reactions, challenges, vlogs, and comedic shorts, Joseph Royal eventually changed his career path to create music where he tells stories of love, loss, and laughter for his audience to connect with. 

“I am a really good storyteller. And that is in telling stories through music, telling stories through content, or telling stories through acting,” he said. 

But putting out content isn’t the only thing that keeps Joseph busy. As an artist and performer, he’s also working on improving himself so that he can continue to do what he loves and feel fulfilled while doing so. 

Learning From People 

“The best advice for somebody who wants to grow in any area of their life would be to learn from people who have done it before you, make sure you compare yourself to yourself and take it one step at a time,” Joseph said. 

When it comes to the people who’ve done it before him, Joseph draws inspiration from artists like Pharrell Williams, Lenny Kravitz, and Kanye West. 

“Seeing how they were so different than most African-Americans Iʼve saw and how they pushed boundaries like creating fashion trends that people would find weird than copy really inspired me to be myself,” he said. 

And when it comes to learning from himself to make himself better, the YouTuber turned artist continues to set the bar higher using thought-provoking lyrics and great song arrangements. 

His approach to music is more direct and personal, often echoing the sound and feel of great acts from the past and the present. 

Looking Within Himself 

Being an artist and content creator isn’t as easy as it seems. It requires a person to be creative and authentic so they can stand out from the others in the industry. 

At times, this pressure can lead to stress and burnout. But Joseph has a way of dealing with this circumstance. 

“I recommend always to sit and meditate. If the outside world is causing you to be burnt out, look within and find where your fire comes from. Also by looking within you can ask yourself how you got to the point of being burnt out,” he said. 

Keeping himself in check and prepared to carry out his responsibilities will not only make Joseph a good artist, but it will also help him in achieving his goal of winning life and not having any regrets in the end.
