Whats up i’m SammyRocket. I’m from Dayton, OH. I’ve been listening to music all of my life.
What first drew you into music?
My dad is probably who drew me to music, hr plays trumpet, but ever since i was young i’ve always loved rap/hip hop music. I would listen to it from the second i woke up until i fell asleep.
Listening to your music we can tell you love incorporating interesting new sounds and techniques within each track! What inspires you to experiment and evolve?
I have decided to dedicate myself to music. I just made my soundcloud account 12 days ago, I created 6 songs in 10 days, every single time i’m putting a new track out I want it to be something people can relate to in their own way. These songs on my soundcloud are my first songs ever. I always knew i could rap and I always knew I had a nice flow and sense of music. I used to write songs on paper but just throw them away and never make them because I would second guess myself and on top of that I never had the resources to do so. I want to be able to touch people with my music. I decided that i’m dedicated to creating music, half a month ago I just said fuck it and bought a whole bunch of shit so I can record and create music, this is only the beginning, i’m currently in the military but soon to be getting out, i’m going to be working a full time job while doing my music on the side
It seems like you already found your signature sound 😊 Do you have any tips for upcoming musicians that can’t seem to find their own sound?
My advice would be to just record your voice over a beat and just play with it. Put the time in, see what sounds good and what sounds bad. Do not accept anything less than perfect when recording and mixing and mastering the audio for your music. I came out with 6 songs in 10 days because I was really just trying to get some music out there. Now i’m going to be taking more time on my each song trying to perfect each one I put out.
Your track “Fuck Wit Me” is your best track in our opinion! From its artwork to the Incredibly powerful sound we absolutely love it. Could you tell us more about the story behind this track? Also, what is your creative process like?
This track was basically made to prove a point to my peers that I can rap, and that I do not care about the hate and negativity i’m receiving from people, and that i’m going to keep doing me no matter what. I was calling out my haters. At the end of the track I was reading off what people were DM’ing me about my music. I do not let it affect me I keep moving forward trying to put out good product for the people that ride with me. Also, my creative process consists of me looking for beats, I’m a deep thinker so if i ever think a deep thought I write it down on my notepad for later when i’m writing future music. I break down each song from beginning to end until i’m finished with the product. I can already tell i’m becoming better at mixing and mastering compared to my first couple times ever.
What are your musical goals for the future?
My musical goals in the future would be to get signed of course. I’ve never done a live show before so I would love to try to do a live show and see how it goes. My biggest musical goal is to create music that helps people when they’re going through life.
What do you have planned for the coming months? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
I’m looking forward to dropping my first ever Album later this year! Please follow ride along with me!
