What is your name and what city do you rep?
King Nova from wyandanch long island
Tell us about your latest releases, what inspired you to create them?
My latest project is The sellout and to be honest it started as a joke, me making fun of what I see as an industry standard I always noticed people with so many features on thier projects and im the kind of artist to stay away from things like that so instead of being like I would be I decided I’d build a project around selling out to societies standards and by time it was done it was a project I grew to love.
What is unique about you and your music?
Whats unique about me and my music is you can’t put a label on it you might go to hear my new single and it’s a commercial rap song but the next one has an underground feel and the next one a pop song…not even rap moving around so much when I was young made my mind stretch I have so many perspectives and I bring them all to the music thier are many versatile people out there but in my opinion it never sounds out of pocket when I explore new sounds I always find people who want it and I love it.
What shaped your music?
I think other artist and my brother helped shape my music im always inspired by other great artist whenever I hear a great record im like damn I wish I wrote this now I need to level up its like a healthy competition formed mentally for me.
When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
Early on I always felt like music was what I was supposed to be doing I just needed more direction.
What type of music do you listen to?
I listen to every sound except death metal I listen to Jay- z, Greenway, the weekend, maroon 5, J cole, K Dot, Drake, The Lox, imagine dragons & plenty more I belive every genre has a feel and I like to learn from them all.
What inspires you to write music?
Emotional things trigger my writing or other artist making great records makes me do the same.
What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
Creating music video treatments and video editing im very passionate about that and I enjoy shooting for other artist im releasing a video early July I shot and edited for Mem-G he is also featured on the sellout on the track get off.
Happiness to you is…
Comfort for your loved ones and just knocking down goals for me nothing feels better than getting shit done.
What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?
That it’s not just about talent and its a full package to be an artist….marketing, studio, outside putting the work in on the ground and that you are a brand and you are the brand.
