HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
FC Amari. The FC stands for first class. The name came about because I spent a lot of time flying/traveling back and forth and I always enjoyed it. First Class represents where I will end up, where only the best sit.
HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
FC Amari. For as long as I can remember music and basketball were the two things I loved most since I was a young kid. After being surrounded by music and the creative process of making music for a long time inspired me to pursue a career.
HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
FC Amari. My newest EP “Flying High” was just a reflection on the growth in my life over the past year after going through some tough times. I’ve been fortunate to see some blessings come my way that I’m eager to build on.
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
FC Amari. I think some of my biggest challenges as an artist are just taking the good with the bad. There are a lot of things about being an artist I love but there’s also a lot of roadblocks and barriers you have to continue to breakthrough. I feel my greatest attribute when it comes to work ethic is my willingness to work on my craft continuously and not let outside factors influence that work ethic.
HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout-outs?
FC Amari. Just a shoutout to the few people in my circle who stay real. They know who they are!
And a big shoutout to my unc OGB he’ll be home soon.
