HCM Interview With Rap Artist ‘HotPink’

HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
I came up with the name “HotPink” because its really a mix of my nickname “Pinky” and by me being a hot girl.

HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursuit a career in music?
I discovered a love for music at a young age. I also had an interest in poetry. As I got older my poems turned into songs, and as my lifestyle changed at around 15 is when my poems and songs turned into raps. Being in Atlanta I had a lot of peers also into music. Some local and some major and that inspired me to keep going.

HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I accredit my lifestyle to my sense of style. I’ve been in a lot of different environments throughout my life and they all contribute to my vibe. I’m a collection of experience. and I think that comes out in the way I rap and also in my lyrics.

HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
My latest single ‘BIG BANKS’ was inspired by the Money Mission. Just a reminder to accomplish those lifetime goals. The concept of BIG BANKS came to me and I was able to write the entire song in 10 minutes.

HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
As an artist, my greatest challenge is trying to please everyone. For me, I like to be open to express myself freely through my music without a filter. And sometimes its a challenge to create or be creative when u have to monitor your own creativity. My greatest attribute when it comes to my work ethic would be my need for perfection.

HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
I would like to thank everyone who submitted beats to ‘contacthotpink@gmail.com’ and also, my engineer for making sure my music is on point.
