Interview with GeniusTee







Where are you from? My name is GeniusTee, I am from Louisville Kentucky 
How long have you been doing what you're doing and how did you get started in the first place? At the age of 4 I got a lot of exposure to music around my older siblings and my father. They all influenced music from the concepts of Tu Pac and alternative rap. I got started at 5 when I recorded a song about things I liked. I rapped about Sonic the Hedgehog and that's when my family said I may have potential. I am self-taught so I don't like to hype myself. I decided I wanted to tell people that I know what losing a friend and breaking your favorite toy was like, or how fun it is to skateboard on hills.   Who were the first influences on your music and style? My biggest influences in my childhood were Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Lil John, Lil Wayne, John Legend, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit, Avril Lavigne, Owl City and Taylor Swift. Other influences include Ice Cube and Mc Eiht. However, the ones who helped me figure out what I was going for were The Weekend, Post Malone, Lil Peep, and Juice Wrld and Baby Metal.   In your opinion who is the most influential and successful artist in your genre today and why? Most successful and influential to my genre of music has to be between Juice Wrld  Peep and Pouya. Although in success to making it reality it all goes to Juice Wrld, the influence is all crashed to Peep as he lived the stereotype that I avoided being as a kid. I could say as a kid of my background and life, I have some scary similarities to Peep that I didn't truly realize until someone told me to listen to him before he died. I ignored him and eventually caught on to them. I never knew Peep as a man so I will just pick up what I thought he dropped and carry it on. But this time it's my message. I guess Im the next Avatar.   What aspect of the music making process excites you most, and what aspect discourages you the most? The aspect that encourages me the most is that I have the ability to win and fail. Ill be satisfied with the idea of challenge while producing something unique and different. I know that learning life through production may have some questions I needed answers to 15 years ago. I love the idea of creating and explaining something that makes someone dance. But sometimes failing to learn could channel negative energy and cause me to be discouraged, like more questions I have to ask. It could be my voice can be damaged, I could forget how to rap. I lose my thoughts when I don't see progression.   Which ingredient do you think is most essential in making your sound and style the way it is? The word ingredient is really hard to swallow because I change my music style to be similar to sounds, I'm hearing while I maintain my emotion toward the track of music. I have slow songs and fast ones. Trap beats and Guitars can define my ingredients as they define me. Trap beats usually associate with EDM, Hip Hop, and everything else surrounding AA culture. I can relate because I heard hip hop everywhere that I stayed as a little kid. It became a norm and defined our taste at home. Guitars are the biggest side of me, I loved listening to hard rock on the radio as a child and when I was about 7 I started my love for metal. I played guitar hero constantly as a kid and stayed updated to every new band up until I was 15. I always wanted to keep mixing hip hop and rock together and then specialize them with emotion. What single are you currently pushing and what will you be dropping next?  I am currently pushing My entire soul into pieces of music that reflect my moods, and reality. I am dropping my next new song called "High and Dyin" It's a song about a part of myself that I thought would never make. The purpose of the song is to let people know, Yeah everyone knows someone on drugs but do you know how they feel? Im hoping that people who don't talk about their feelings listen to this and realize that its real and you're not alone, you can hear the damage in the air. I was only 14.   What can fans expect from you in the future and where can they stay up to date on your movement?  I want fans who listen to all the cool alternative artists to expect me to push both emotional content and rap rock content. I want my fans to know I came from house jumping to, garbage can life, to being a walking jukebox. I love music and I want to make many different song types to share my experiences with everybody.
