1. What made you wanna become a rapper?
Ive always wanted to be a rapper, since i was younger growing up and watching yo mtv raps and music videos it was just something i wanted to do on a main stream level.
2. When you listen to a track, do you focus more on the beat or the lyrics?
Both equally important to me but the flow is also a major component.
3. Do you write your songs with or without the beat?
I write songs to the beat for sure. the beats sets the tone for the lyrics.
4. Do you prefer being in the studio or on stage?
I prefer the stage just because you can see the reactions to something you created in the studio. Then the connection with the fans is a good feeling.
5. How can other artist, labels, a&r’s get a hold of you for booking? weskravebooking@gmail or you can go to the website weskrave.com and go to the Contacts Tab. You can also find recent news and updates on what I have going on.
6. How many hours does it it take you to write a song?
Just depends on what I got going on. Usually a bout an hr for a hook and a verse but its rare that I get to sit straight through because I may have to leave or somebody may stop through, so a lot of verses i come back to, sometimes on purpose just to let a line marinate.
7. How many takes does it take you to do a song?
I like to do 4 or 5 takes because I don’t like to punch in. I like to go through my verse straight through if possible. So I have to make sure its tight and how I want it. I can get through in 1 take but I always say it can be better or tighter or more energy.
8. Does age matter when your a rapper?
Yes age matters to me because you should get held to a different standard meaning if you older you shouldn’t be doing be out doing the same thing 20 something year olds are doing. I believe when you are older your position in life should be different and especially your mindset.
9. Do you think having a website is important for an artist?
Yes I think its standard in business. I have one and I try to drive all my fans to the website. It should be a place where the fans can keep up with everything about you.
10. In this New School music era do you still think it is relevant to make a full length albums?
It may be relevant for some artist. Some artist are just single type rappers and some can hit you with a single but it may make you want to hear more about them, Usually an album gives you a wide range of feelings and topics so you are able to get more of an insight on that artist.
