Fierce: For those who are not familiar with you can you please introduce yourself to the world?
Namir: Well my name is Namir and I am a 20 year old rapper from Delaware. I have been rapping for 3 years; I have been blessed to be in the studio with Meek Mill and I have won Delaware Best Rapper of the year and I pretty much do my own thing and stay focused.
Fierce: Who is the artist Namir and what does he represent?
Namir: I represent the entire state of Delaware. There hasn’t been anyone to come out of the state and tell the story of the state and I want to be that person. From the way it is looking the state is wanting me to be that person. I am just a person that speaks for the people that do not have a chance to speak.
Fierce: How would you categorize your music; is it a more of a Southern feel or more of an East Coast type of feel?
Namir: I don’t feel like I can put my music in a category. I do all types of music; I do Southern or I may do a West Coast type or an East Coast type of music. I have sampled classic rock and classic country, I feel that I am my own category since I am coming from a place that no one has heard of yet
Fierce: You rarely hear of hip hop artist coming out of Delaware, explain the music scene in your area?
Namir: The music scene in Delaware is completely different from anywhere else. Delaware is such a small state the buzz is not the same as anywhere else. We listen to a lot of our own music and Philly artist like Meek Mill. Our music scene is basically l based on local rappers
Fierce: Who were your biggest music influences?
Namir: My biggest music influence of all time is Jay-Z. He is a man of principle and a boss in all since of the words. My goal once I get to the industry is to surpass him; not in a bad way he was the greatest of his time and his city and I want to be the greatest in my city and my time.
Fierce: Who or what motivates you to keep pursuing your dream?
Namir: Just the support from the state. To come out of Delaware and to even get a buzz out of Delaware is hard since it is so small. The second is that the people expect me to fail since I am coming from Delaware is motivation as well and the people around me motivates me. They look at me as a leader and I cannot let down my team I can’t let down my family or the state that supports me.
Fierce: I know you are currently working on your new EP “The H.U.S.T.L.E.”, explain what the fans will get from this album?
Namir: Well the hustle is an acronym the Hungry Underdog Striving to Live Everyday and what they will get is all my pain. I have grown through a lot last year and when I got back in the studio I let out all my feelings and my emotions and there is really no party songs, they are getting my feeling. The fans that have been with me will get a new side of me.
Fierce: Where would you like for your music to take you as far as career wise?
Namir: I want to be one of the greatest to ever do it. I love music. I do not do it for the money. I am currently learning how to play the guitar and the piano because I want to take my music to another level. When people look back on my music I want them to be able to say he was able to do this and that.
Fierce: 10 years from now if someone looks back and listens to your music, what would you like for them to say about you?
Namir: What I would like them to say is that I had timeless music. I want to make music that they can listen to 10 years from now and they have the same feeling they did when they first heard it.
Fierce: Is there anything that you would like to say to your fans and supporters?
Namir: I want to say keep supporting and I appreciate all the love and I hope they can follow me on Twitter and Instagram. I talk back to all my fans and I am a regular dude. I have my music side and my business side but at the end of the day I am a regular dude so thank you and look out for me.
