24 Apr DO ME A FAVOR

I had the pleasure to sit and talk with the one and only Anonymous Culture out of  Dallas, Texas. Speaking with this Southern Gentleman I could tell from the beginning of our conversation that he is very unique and intelligent and it comes out through his style and his music. Below is the interview that he blessed me with. Enjoy. Muah.

FIERCE: WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR NAME ‘ANONYMOUS CULTURE’ FROM IT IS VERY UNIQUE?

ANONYMOUS: WELL ONE DAY I WAS TRYING TO GET A NAME AND WE WERE TRYING TO THINK OF A NAME ME AND A COUPLE OF MY FRIENDS AND A COUPLE OF GIRLS WERE AROUND AND THEY ASKED WHO I WAS AND MY HOMENOY JUMPED UP AND SAID” DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT HE IS ANONYMOUS” AND I ADDED THE CULTURE TO IT LATER. FOR PEOPLE TO ASK MORE QUESTIONS IT INVITES MORE CONVERSATION.

FIERCE: YOUR STYLE IS VERY UNIQUE AS WELL ALONG WITH YOUR NAME. CAN YOU EXPLAIN YOUR STYLE AND WHO INFLUENCES YOU AS FAR AS DRESS AND MUSIC?

ANONYMOUS: UM WELL FIRST AND FOREMOST THE HAIRCUT HAS A NAME IT IS CALLED THE ‘DUKOM FADE’. (ASKED IS IT A TEXAS THING) YES AND KNOW OUR HAIRCUTS ARE WILD WHERE WE ARE FROM. MY HAIR CUT IS A RAMP BUT THE WAY I WEAR IT WITH A BEARD I CALLED IT A DUKOM FADE THAT IS MY NEIGHBORHOOD NAME. MY STYLE I’VE ALWAYS LIKED SUITS AND I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A RESPECT FOR SUITS AND I APPRECIATE THE RESPECT THAT YOU GET FROM SUITS AND I FEEL LIKE I AM GOING TO WORK WHEN I PERFORM. ON MY DAY TO DAY I AM MORE CASUAL. LIFE IS MY BIGGEST INFLUENCE WHEN IT COMES OT MUSIC AND I HAVE HAD A VERY INTERESTING LIFE. MUSIC WIDE JAY Z, EMINEM, TUPAC, AND AL GREEN INFLUENCES ME MUSICALLY. MUSIC HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE THING THAT STRIVES ME.

FIERCE: NOW I KNOW YOU ARE FROM TEXAS AND WITH EVERY CITY/STATE THERE ARE INDIE ARTIST IN THE AREA. CAN YOU EXPLAIN THE SCENE THERE IN TEXAS AS FAR AS INDIE ARTIST? IS IT A SUPPORTIVE SCENE?

ANONYMOUS: THE MUSIC SCENE IN DALLAS IS MOST DEFINETLY FORMING INTO SOMETHING THAT CAN BLOSSOM INTO SOMETHING THAT CAN BE GREAT IN MY OPINION. THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT  STYLES O FMUSIC IN DALLAS THAT ARE NOW GETTING TO DEVELOP THAT IS GAINING POPALARITY AND THAT WILL BE DISCOVERED IN A MATTER OF TIME AND  ALL IT WILL TAKE IS ONE ARTIST. DALLAS HAS ITS OWN FLAVOR THAT IS ALMOST SUPPRESSED BUT IT IS NOW GETTING TO BOIL OVER AND IT IS NOW GETTING ON THE RADIOS AND GETTING SUPPORT. RIGHT NOW IT IS IN A DEVELOPMENT STAGE.

FIERCE: NOW I HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO YOUR SINGLE ‘DO ME A FAVOR’ WHICH I ABSOLTELY LOVE.  YOU KNOW US WOMEN ARE SUCKERS FOR A GREAT LOVE SONG. IS THAT BASED OFF OF A TRUE LIFE EVENT?

ANONYMOUS: UM….I WOULD WORD IT THIS WAY…… I SAT DOWN AND I THOUGHT ABOUT A LOT OF FEMALES THAT I HAVE HAD ENCOUNTERS WITH EITHER ON A FAMILY MEMBER SIDE OR IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH AND THORUGH THAT I WANTED TO MAKE SOME THING POWERFUL AND WANTED TO SHARE A LIGHT ON IT. IT IS NO SECRET THAT IN THE URBAN AREA THERE ARE A LACK OF FATHER S AND I AM AROUNF A LOT FEMALES THAT ARE DEALING WITH THOSE TYPE OF PROBLEMS AND DEALING WITH THAT ON THE DAILY AND WITH GUYS THAT ARE SINGLE PARENTS AND THAT ARE DEALING WITH THIS ON A DAILY, EVEN THOUGH THE SONG WAS NOT FOR GUYS, BUT I WANTED TO SHED LIGHT ON IT FOR THE SINGLE MOTHERS THAT WAKE UP 2-3 HOURS EARLIER TO GET THEIR KIDS UP AND COMING FROM A SINGLE PARENT HOME AND BEING A SINGLE PARTEN AT DIFFRENT TIMES. IT WAS WRITTEN FROM A PERSPONAL POINT OF VIEW BUT FOR EVERYONE THAT HAS BEEN IN THAT TYPE OF STRUGGLE.

FIERCE:  WHAT TYPE OF FEEL ARE YOU GOING WITH YOUR MUSIC?

ANONYMOUS: OVERALL I REALLY WANT TO MAKE MUSIC THAT CAN TRANSLATE OR CAN TRANSLATE INTO SOMEONES PERSONAL EXPERINECE. EVEN IF IT IS A PARTY SONG OR A SERIOUS SONG OR WHATEVER TYPE OF SONG I AM TRYING TO MAKE I ALWAYS TAKE WHATEVER PERSONAL ISSUE I HAVE HAD AND TRY TO INCORPORATE IT INTO MY MUSIC SO SOMEONE CAN RELATE TO IT. I WANT IT TO BE A LIFESTYLE MUSIC.

FIERCE: WHAT COMPELLED YOU TO START MAKING MUSIC?

ANONYMOUS: IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF MY LIFE. I WAS ALWAYS AROUND MUSIC. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A TALENT IN MUSIC NO MATTER WHAT TYPE OF STYLE AND I PLAYED SPORTS ALSO BUT ONCE I GOT TO HIGH SCHOOL I DID NOT GROW SO THE CHANCES OF ME MAKING IT IN THE NFL WAS SLIM.  SO I WAS LIKE I’M GOOD IN MUSIC AND I DECIDED TO GO STRONG WITH AND STARTED GROWING.

FIERCE: WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE FOR YOUR MUSIC TO TAKE YOU?

ANONYMOUS: HONESTLY SOME PEOPLE THINK I AM CRAZY WHEN I SAY THIS BUT  I WOULD LIKE TO BE A SUPERSTAR I WOULD LIKE TO BE ON A MICHAEL JACKSON AND BEYONCE LEVEL. I DO NOT THINK A RAPPER HAS EVER REACHED THAT LEVEL LIKE JAY Z LIL WAYNE EMINEM THEY ARE KNOWN FROM DIFFERENT WALKS  OF LIFE BUT  I WANT TO BE KNOWN WORLDWIDE NOT JUST URBAN.

FIERCE: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE STATE OF MUSIC (HIP HOP/RAP) AS A WHOLE CURRENTLY AT THIS MOMENT? (AT THIS MOMENT I EXPLAINED TO HIM THAT I FEEL THAT THERE ARE SOME ARTIST THAT HAVE A DEAL THAT I FEEL ARE NOT AS TALENTED AS A LOT OF INDIE ARTIST OUT HERE)

ANONYMOUS: WELL YOU HAVE TO TAKE IN ACCOUNT THAT SOME ARTIST ARE WHO THEY ARE BECAUSE OF THEIR FANS. I CAN’T HATE ON THEM FOR GETTING A DEAL.  AS A RECORD LABEL IF I SEE THEM PUSIHING 100,000 COPIES AS AN INDEPENDENT ARITST, WHY WOULDN’T I SIGN THEM. AS FAR AS THE INDUSTRY, I AM COMFORTABLE WITH IT. I WOULD MORE SO PUSH THE BLAME OF THE MUSIC OF HOW IT IS SHIFTING ON THE PUBLIC. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GUCCI MANE AND A LUPE FIASCO; GUCCI IS GOING DIRECTY TO THE PEOPLE. HE IS ACCESSIBLE AT A CERTAIN EXTENT AND YOU ARE ABLE TO BUY INTO HIS STORY. THE GENERAL PUBLIC IS NOT AS SMART AS LUPE AND A LOT OF HIS MESSGAE IS NOT ABLE TO UNDERSTAND AND IF THEY CANNOT UNDERSTAND THEY TURN AWAY. IT’S OUR JOB AS AN ARTIST TO GET THE MESSAGE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC AND HAVE THEM BUY INTO OUR MESSAGE. I THINK A LOT OF ARTIST DO NOT KNOW HOW TO WORK AND THAT IS WHERE THE COMPLAINING COME FROM.

FIERCE: WHEN PEOPLE LOOK BACK AT YOUR MUSIC 5-10 YEARS FROM NOW, WHAT DO YOU WANT THEM TO THINK OR SAY ABOUT YOUR MUSIC?

ANONYMOUS: THE FIRST THING I WOULD LIKE FOR THEM TO SAY IS …I WOULD LIKE TO BE A DALLAS PIOPNEER FOR ONE. I KNOW THE AMOUNT OF TALENT WE HAVE IN OUR CITY AND I AM A LYRICIST AND THAT EVERYTIME THAT THEY HEARD MY SONG IT TOOK THEM TO A MOMENT REMINDING THEM OF WHEN THEY HAD THEIR FIRST KISS OR A NGHT IN THE CLUB OR WHATEVER IT MAY BE WHEN YOU LISTEN TO ME IT TOOK THEM TO A PLACE. 

FIERCE: WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY TO YOUR FANS?

ANONYMOUS: I LOVE THEM BECAUSE THEY SHOW ME A LOT OF LOVE, PEOPLE REALLY APPRECIATE MY MUSIC AND I WOULD LIKE  TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO KEEP SPREADIBG THE WORD AND I AM GOING TO KEEP RAISING THE BAR AND GROW WITH ME AND ALLOW ME TO GROW PLEASE AND FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER @ACECULTURE.
