HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Scilence. When I was a child I never talked. I started talking at the age of 5.
HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
Scilence. I always liked music growing up. I loved singing nursery rhymes, haha! But I really got into writing music when I was 12 years old. That’s when I started writing music. and I knew I wanted to pursue music.
HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Scilence. I am highly influenced by today’s rap music. I love where hip hop is today. It’s so diverse, so that’s why I like to rap and kind of sing a little melodic hook. Haha I’m not the best singer but it’s just another way I like to express myself in my music.
HCM. On your current single… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
Scilence. My first single is called “Drip so Dumb” and it’s basically a club record. It’s a very fun melody on a trap beat. All my songs are very diverse but still very catchy. A great example would be my song called “Clout”. That song is very relatable and super catchy while I’m rapping on an Afro-Latin beat. I want to create a party vibe with my songs. I want people to think of me when they see a red party cup, haha!
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Scilence. My greatest challenge as an artist is being patient. While I’m creating great quality content
I just gotta wait my turn and keep up the hard work. I feel like I’m building a great momentum which is my greatest attribute. Hard work pays off in the end.
HCM. What impression would you like listeners to be left with after hearing your music?
Scilence. I want listeners to be able to vibe to my songs. Be able to listen to the lyrics and connect with it emotionally.
HCM. What are your plans for the near future?
Scilence. My plans are to keep building my fan base and eventually get to the point where I’m doing shows outside of California to give my fans the ultimate experience.
HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Scilence. Haha! I want to give a shout out to Momma Branch and all my day 1 fans!!!
