HCM Interviews Richfield, MN Artist – Overdose

HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Overdose. From the person who let me down with broken promises, that I believed in. So I kept the name as a reminder.

HCM. When did you start making music and taking it serious? 
Overdose. At the age of 16, a classmate had a studio and after hearing my voice on a track changed me and fueled a fire, to wanting to be better.

HCM. Who influenced you to become an artist? And why?
Overdose. The first hip-hop song I can remember enjoying was gangstas paradise by Coolio,

I was 4 years old and new to all music, but arrangement of singing and rapping was something special to me, I was too young to understand the meaning behind the lyrics, but I still memorized all the words. It wasn’t till I was about 12 when I bought the Eminem show album and started writing lyrics to instrumentals instead of poetry.

HCM. Do you feel that you are an artist or entertainer?  Explain. 
Overdose. I feel like I’m an artist more than anything now. Because I believe in my creativity more than ever, but when I started it was more about being an entertainer, because I loved the spotlight.

HCM. What are you currently working on and how can the people find you? 
Overdose. Currently I’m working on a few singles that should be released some time in April, you can find me on Eardetainment.com, along with ITunes, Spotify, Youtube and etc.
