Exclusive Interview with "Kapital J"
How do you go about recording, promoting and releasing your music?
At the moment, all of my music is recorded at BeatsAfterDark studios. This is where I team up with owner/producer/engineer K-Dence to record the freshest hiphop music for the world to hear. With promoting, I do most of the dirty work myself. Whether it be adding new music, videos, pictures onto myspace or bandcamp or simply distributing cds and word of mouth.
LatinoHiphop.Org: Where do you see the music industry 5 years from now?
To be honest, the music industry is always revolving and reinventing itself. Whether it be incorporating old samples from classics to blending crazy vocals with new technolgy. I think in 5 years the music industry will still be looking for artists with a fresh sound to appeal to newer audiences.
LatinoHiphop.Org: If you received $100,000 dollars tomorrow, that you had to use on your music, how would you use it?
If I received $100,000 dollars tomorrow, I first would pay my well deserved producers for the time and effort they put into believing in me as an artist . Secondly, I would hire the right management to help get me and my music out into the right hands. Last but not least, I would hire a street team to help with the promotions of my music to push my sound to new audiences.
LatinoHiphop.Org: What are you currently working on?
After droppping my first street album on BeatsAfterDark.com titled " Homegrown". Im back in the studio working with K-Dence and fellow B.A.D producers such as C.Watts and D.J. Downright for another classic hip-hop album. I'm also doing features with other artists within L.A county for their upcoming albums and mixtapes.
