HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Jae Czar. When I was younger my favorite rapper was 50 cent and I used to watch the movie get rich or die trying all the time his stage name in the movie is Cesar so with my middle name being j I just threw the Jae in front of it but to make it different I did a little research and found the word czar meant king so I changed the spelling.
HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
Jae Czar. As a kid, my grandparents used to have a lot of old school records and I think I was introduced to music around then but my father used to always rap to me and send me raps in the mail I started writing when I was around 16 used the hustler’s ambition beat but I never took seriously until I was 21 when I moved to Houston.
HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
Jae Czar. I try not to put too much into following certain guidelines so mainly my music comes from where I am in life at the time of the album and with this upcoming album being Luv scars it’s pretty apparent it’s all about relationships s ups and downs the scars it leaves or for a lifetime depending on the relationship so yeah.
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Jae Czar. I would say at this stage the most challenging thing is time management it’s never enough time in a day. My greatest attribute would be my relentless grind and persistence ambition and dedication to continue doing what I love.
