23 Apr INTERVIEW – STRAIGHT OUT OF BROOKLYN

Brooklyn New York. Home of some of the best emcees to ever do it and MillyWarbucks is no exception. Starting his career at the tender age of 9 MillyWarbucks knew that this is what he wanted to do. I got a chance to speak to this young man as he spoke to me about his journey thus far.

FIERCE: FOR THE PEOPLE THAT DO NOT KNOW OF YOU, INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO THE WORLD?

MILLYWARBUCKS: I AM MILYWARBUCKS BROOKLYN’S FINEST.

FIERCE: NOW I KNOW HOW YOUR NAME CAME ABOUT BUT CAN YOU TELL THE WORLD WHERE MILLYWARBUCKS CAME FROM?

MILLYWARBUCKS: IT CAME ABOUT WITH MY GRANDFATHER AND MOTHER. I  USE TO ALWAYS TALK ABOUT GETTING THEM OUT OF THEIR SITUATION AND I USE TO SAY I AM GOING TO GET THEM A MILLION DOLLAR HOUSE AND MY GRANDFATHER USE TO SAY MILLY ALL THE TIME AND I STUCK WITH IT AND THE WARBUCKS CAME LATER

FIERCE: HOW OR WHAT MADE YOU START WANTING TO RECORD MUSIC?

MILLYWARBUCKS: YOU KNOW MUSIC HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN MY BACKGROUND, IN MY BLOOD. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN AROUND THAT WAS ONE OF THE MAJOR THINGS  IN THE HOUSE GROWING UP MOM WAS ALWAYS PLAYING MUSIC AND WOULD SING ALONG TO IT AND I WAS A BIG MICHAEL JACKSON FAN  AND MY GRANDFATHER WAS ON THE BILLBOARD CHARTS BACK IN THE 70’S SO IT’S ALWAYS BEEN IN MY BLOOD.

FIERCE: EXPLAIN WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DOES MILLYWARBUCKS MAKE AND WHAT MESSAGE ARE YOU TRYING TO GET ACROSS?

MILLYWARBUCKS: THE MESSAGE  I AM TRYING TO GET ACROSS….MUSIC IS SO WATER DOWN NOW IT IS NOT AS PURE AS IT USE TO BE AND I AM TRYING TO GET ACROSS THAT THERE ARE STILL SOME MUSICIANS THAT CAN DO IT ALL. THAT IT HAS SOME SUBSTANCE TO IT. THIS IS  MY REAL LIFE NO FABRICATION ON WAX.

FIERCE: NOW YOU ARE FROM NEW YORK WHERE HIP HOP WAS BIRTHED. HOW IS THE SCENE UP THERE AS FAR AS THE INDIE ARTIST MOVEMENT?

MILLYWARBUCKS: TO EACH ITS OWN. ONE THING I CAN SAY ABOUT THE SOUTH IT IS VERY UNIFIED WITH NY IT IS NOT LIKE THAT. YOU HAVE TO KEEP PUSHING UNTIL THE DOORS OPEN. IT IS HARD FOR INDEPENDENT ARTIST IN NY.

FIERCE: DO YOU THINK BY BEING IN  THAT PARTICULAR SETTING THAT THERE ARE MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR AN INDIE ARTIST VERSUS A INDIE ARTIST FROM A SMALLER AREA?

MILLYWARBUCKS: I THINK AS FAR AS THE ACCESS IT MAY BE A LITTLE EASIER BUT I FEEL THAT IN A SMALLER SETTING I FEEL YOU CAN CREAT YOUR MOVEMENT AND IF YOU GOT YOUR WHOLE TOWN BEHIND YOU IT IS A WIN/WIN SITUATION.

FIERCE: HOW DO YOU COME UP WITH YOUR SONGS? DO YOU LISTEN TO THE BEAT FIRST THEN WRITE OR VICE VERSA?

MILLYWARBUCKS: IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE SITUATION OR WHERE I AM AT. I COME UP WITH SONGS ALL THE TIME. THANK GOD FOR IPHONE VOICE RECORDER SO IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE MOMENT FOR ME.

FIERCE: WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF CAREER WISE IN 5-10 YEARS?

MILLYWARBUCKS: UM BEING A MAJOR FORCE/MOGUL, NOT JUST MUSIC BUT IN THE ENTERTAINMENT  INDUSTRY PERIOD BEING  MENTIONED  WITH THE LIKES OF  JAY Z, DIDDY, AND  RUSSELL SIMMONS.

FIERCE: ANY THOUGHTS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SAY TO ANYONE WHO IS STRIVING SUCH AS YOURSELF TO GET INTO THE BUSINESS THAT MAY NEED A LITTLE ADVICE?

MILLYWARBUCKS: YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. THERE ARE GOING TO BE PEOPLE THAT WILL NOT BELIEVE IN YOU BUT, IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOU KEEP PUSHING, KEEP WATCHING MARKETING TOOLS TO BE MORE SUCCESSFUL. NOT JUST MUSIC BUT BUSINESSES PERIOD AND GO ABOUT IT THE SAME WAY.
