Artist: T-Rippa

Hi, how are you today?

I'm doing great, staying busy.

Where are you from?

I was born in Chicago Illinois but raised in the Valley of The Sun, Arizona.

When did you start making music? - What or Who were your early influences?

I started making music well writing in 6th grade in my old notebook. My early influences would be Xzibit, Tupac, Nas ,Bone Thugs n Harmony, Mac Miller, Curren$y just to name a few.

What skills do you think artists need to be successful?

You gotta have business skills and paper work right. Also know how to find your sound and your crowd.

How do you stay up to date with the latest music trends?

Well I mean social media is the easiest way to stay up to date and pretty much networking with fellow artist and radio stations.

When performing, what techniques do you use to engage the audience?

When I perform I usually get a reaction from the crowd or ask for crowd to show some love or just basically invite them to the stage normally works.

What, would you say, is the most reward part about being an artist?

The most rewarding thing I would say is hearing how many people listen and love your music so much they pass of your songs to their friends and family.

How did you spend Lockdown/Pandemic time? What did you accomplish before the entertainment world opened up again?

I spent my time during lockdown actually planning my next release, did some networking on my social media which gained some leverage. I also met a manager.

What makes you different from other artists?

What makes me different is I can pretty write about anything and not be on the same old same old things lot of rappers are on. I can switch it up any time any track if I have the right motivation to make it a hit.

When you're not making music where can we find you?

When not making music you can find me just chilling out in nature going hiking just retaining my peace to keep me working and moving on the drum beat.
