BLACC OUT ENT.
E.H.M.P.: What influences your music? What really influenced the start of Blacc Out Entertainment besides the obvious?
BLACC OUT: I want to create a movement to show that not only does my city have talent but enough to make it. Also, the saying hip-hop is dead. (shakes head) It’s just not taken as serious and we are here to change that!
E.H.M.P.: What do you guys think of the state of hip-hop now? How would you separate yourselves from other artist?
BLACC OUT: It all sounds the same and we consider ourselves different. We have more to talk about than drugs. We have our own sound as well.
E.H.M.P.: What has been some of you guys struggles as you try to pursue your individual and group music careers? What advice would you collectively give others in your place?
BLACC OUT: Rejection, rejection, rejection! Everybody will not except you. Just follow your dream and try and stand out. If people are doing it one way look for a different way of doing it and master it. No accomplishment goes unnoticed, period.
E.H.M.P.: What was it like taking second place at the Elegant Hoodness showcase in Columbia, SC at Side Pockets on November 3rd? Was it even more motivating?
BLACC OUT: It was an extra accomplishment and a great feeling. We all got together and made a pact to turn it up or hustle and focus 100%. It was really motivating and well needed.
E.H.M.P.: Do you guys have any upcoming projects that you’ll are working on? Where can readers connect with you’ll and your music?
BLACC OUT: We are currently working on the official Blacc Out mixtape. You can follow us on Twitter (@blaccoutent1) our website (www.blaccoutent.com) and Soundcloud (blaccoutent).
E.H.M.P.: Do you guys have any last shout outs or thoughts?
BLACC OUT: Shout out to the man upstairs for making all of this possible. Shout out to my producer Curtis Forbes with F&M Productions. Shout out to Elegant Hoodness for giving us the opportunity to rock the stage. To our fans and supporters we you’ll beyond reason. Also, shout to Phil Ducket, Lady Gucci’s producer. Much love, homie.
