Detroit is the home of many talents, with the spotlight being on quite a few well-known artists. One artist that is on the rise is Ku-Laid The Entertainer. On his way to that same stage, he reveals the evolvement of his music career in an interview.
Born and raised in Detroit, his early love for music wouldn’t evolve into an established music career until the mid 2010s. During that process, he would go on to master music engineering, launch a clothing line and merchandise, and self-record most of his releases. The multi-talented individual never fails to impress.
What’s your creative process like?
“I first find a beat, then I write,” he describes. “To get more in depth, I center my energy, get into a vibe as I surf through beats, and once I find a beat, I figure out how to approach it.”
Tell us about your most recent release.
“My latest release “Hussle” is a track I wanted to put out to motivate and inspire people to “get it”. It was one of the earlier songs I did with my producer, Mike D Exclusive. It is a goal motivator song. For the video I took the approach of “Don’t be a menace….” playing out 3 scenes from the movie.”
You have a unique stage name. How did you get that name?
“Ku-Laid Thee Entertainer came from my childhood nickname which was just “koo-laid”. I got that name as a kid. My mom would lock me outside and forced me to make friends. I would always have a big red cup filled with Kool-aid and the kids would just get on me and talk shit. Some claimed they could make better kool-aid than me and we had a competition. I clearly won, so they stuck me with the name. So as I got older people always would say I was cool and laid back so when I started doing music, I just change the spelling and added “Thee Entertainer ” and ran with it”.
