Lando is an artist based in the United States. The rapper has recently received a lot of positive attention due to his singles. We got the chance to interview him below:
1. Hey, Lando. First of all, can you tell us how you was introduced into the music industry?
I was never really introduced to the industry. I never had a homie with a studio, or a camera or any of that. I never even thought about making music until I realized that a lot of my lifestyle would be perfect rap material. After that I figured the industry needed a real 1 so I’m stepping up.
2. How do you feel about your music’s popularity?
My fans bang my music heavy and they are the main reason I keep on with it. With that being said I got a small fan base and I have to do a better job of getting my music the attention it deserves. Once people hear me they fwm.
3. What are your music goals?
My main goal is to have recognition that I’m one of, if not, the realest to ever step in the booth and walk the street. I want to kill all the fake shit. I also want my talent recognized because I haven’t even got close to being the best rapper I can be yet. Let me get famous with some free time in the booth and you going to hear the greatest shit in the world.
4. Where do you find your artistic inspiration?
All my inspiration comes from my life or the life of my homies and family. Never been one to fake shit so I’m inspired to bring some real to the world.
5. Who have been the most influential musicians for you?
I grew up listening to Nelly, 50 Cent, Ludacris, Eminem, The Game, 3 6 Mafia, Juvenile, Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, Jeezy. All them and several more I look up to and have been heavily influenced by.
6. If you have to choose someone to collaborate with on an EP who would that be and why?
If I was choosing for the money I would have to choose Drake. He puts up the most consistent numbers of any rapper of all time. If I was going to choose on my personal preference of sound and who I would like to learn from the most I would go with Lil Wayne. He in my opinion has birthed Drake, Thugger, and many more. Without Wayne today’s hip hop wouldn’t be what it is.
7. What advice would you give to upcoming artists?
The first thing I would tell all upcoming artists is to focus on building viewership so that every time you drop new music it is getting heard by the masses. Great music with low views isn’t thought of as great music by your average listener. Majority of people want to see that they aren’t the only ones listening and liking a song.
