HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
3lie Fox. I was in school and me and my good friend Jake, we’re thinking of rap names. My real name is Eli and he said what about 3lie. I said yeah that’s dope I think I will use that.
HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
3lie Fox. I was about 8 when I made my first song called “Cough Drop”. That was about 4 years ago. Ever since then I have loved making music. It has always been a way for me to express my emotions.
HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
3lie Fox. My new project I just released “3lie for President” is a mix of R&B and rap. I came up with the concept of showing my emotions and showing people some of the more personal parts of my life.
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
3lie Fox. One of the greatest challenges as an artist that I face is my age, I am only 13 as you might know. This causes a lot of people not to take me seriously. My work ethic is very good. I grew up always being a hard worker and hustler. That’s thanks to my dad he owns a local tire business. I started helping out there when I was only 8. He taught me what the value of a dollar really is. Nowadays I think a lot of parents spoil their kids and don’t show them the concept of working hard which I think is very important to do.
HCM. What impression would you like listeners to be left with after hearing your music?
3lie Fox. I would like my listeners to be left with the impression of a surprise because when you think of me I’m only a 13-year-old rapper and the average impression of a 13-year-old rapper is that they are just a wannabe rapper and they just talk about things they have never experienced. But I really try to share real struggles and emotions that I have.
HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
3lie Fox. Yeah, I would like to thank my mom and dad for always supporting me. I would also like to thank Hefebossup for taking me to the studio for the first time. As well as Doofdum for helping me evolve my sound to that professional standard that I needed.
