TO PROVE A POINT.Saint Orleans; that's an interesting stage name.....can we get a background on the name?I actually recently switch my name to Saint Oeaux. Still the same meaning behind it just wanted to go a little simpler. The meaning basically is always remember where you from (New Orleans in my case) but still understanding that where you are at or have lived for a long time plays a key role and is as just important which Saint Louis is to me. So I combined both cities names. Oeaux which is said O, is a french way of spelling words like you'll see Saints fans hold up signs
that say Geaux Saints. I felt like a lot of artist come from a similar situation like Kanye was born in ATL but grew up in Chicago.What made you want to pick up the mic?A lot of factors. My brother was signed to a independent label when I was a kid. That played a big role in my decision. Also, my Uncle is Guitar Slim Jr. He grammy nominated for his album. He didnt win it so I felt like I need to bring that home. When I moved to Saint Louis in middle school school, my way of coping with being depressed from being home sick was the Hotboys. They made me feel like I was back home. And they run actually started as soon as I got here. Thats the movement that made me start rapping even though I recorded my first song at 9 years old.A couple years ago you had a huge smash hit in the Midwest region with "We Don't Luv'em".....tell us a little about the record and what markets you touched with it?I went a lot of places with that record. Atlanta had a lil taste of it, Kansas City loved the record. It was just as big there as St.Louis. Little Rock, Austin, TX, and few other small markets.Your latest single "Hella Good" is starting to pick up sum buzz, tell us about it?Hella Good is produced by Blame Wiz who I started with when I was 15. The record basically came up when people felt like I was missing because I wasnt getting radio spins off any new records. Almost as if I fell off. I never took a break. Always was working, touring, and dropping projects so we dropped that record to let them know.Your latest project "Via Dolorosa" is a lot different from your early work. Tell us what made you go in a direction of more "Hip Hop" then the club records?I love club records I grew up listening to all types of music. But honestly I just went through so much from the closest person to me M-Eazy getting diagnosed with MS to losing my Dad I just felt like I
don't care what people think. Instead of quitting rap, I made that album for me. Now its new life to my creativity. It was no marketing scheme to it. I simply did what I wanted even if people would have said it was horrible I would have been happy. Via Dolorosa is the path Jesus walked before being crucified. Thats how this game is. One minute they be all for you. Next minute they be trying to crucify you. I experienced that with We Dont luv em. So many new friends came along. Then soon as they thought I was done I dont hear from them.What sports did you grow up playing and who was your favorite athlete and why?I played football and mostly basketball. My favorite athlete.... I have two. My cousins Daniel and Jason Horton. Daniel was starting point guard for Michigan, Jason starting point for Missouri. They my favorite because I watched them work hard and get as far as they did. I also felt like they went through what Im going through now. Daniel started on the Junior Olympic team with Carmelo and was cool with Chris Bosh but never broke through in the NBA. They motivate me to keep pushing and they like my brothers.What's your favorite book?I don't have one really. If I had to pick one I'll say the Bible.I'm shooting videos to Jesus, Real or Fake, 1994, and maybe a few more. I'm working on some tour dates possibly may have a performance at A3C this year. Also working on a colab show with Saint Boogie Brass Band in STL.What do you want people take away from your music?I want them to see that being humble, being normal, being you is ok.Social media?@SaintOeaux on Twitter and Ig.
