Exclusive interview with Maynor111
What’s your background? What got you into rap music?
I’m Born in Los Angeles California and raised in Inglewood and Redwood City out here in the Bay Area. So my entire culture is rap and Hispanic music. hip hop. Corridos, bachata and stuff like that the streets. Learning from the biggest bosses in the hood. Having crazy game. Mixing book smarts with street smart, money marketing and learning business. Learning shit quick. Making a lot of money at a young age. It screamed I’m a rapper. And I lived that life from time before I even spit my first line in a mic.
How long has music been a part of your life?
For me music has always been with me somehow, even as a little kid I used to Imagine I was singing a bachata song to a girl like if I was in a music video “haha” but yeah ever since little I been singing songs to my mother and people because I love doing that. A song i would always sing to my mother, and still do is. Novelita by aventura. Professionally I been doing music for 3 years.
If it wasn’t for music, where would you be now?
Maybe being a trouble kid, going out and doing things that jeopardize me from being in the streets. And more of an outside person.
How did you come to realise that music was the way forward for you?
All my life, through everything, even when I would be stressing out about anything. Music been there in good or bad Yk, and it’s the inspiration I pick up from other artist and I wanna be like them Yk. I always had a celebrity mentality and personality.
If you had to sacrifice one skill, which would you least like to let go, and why?
Playing instruments. I’m not very good at playing anything and I’m focused more as a vocalist and not creating the beats or melody.
Where do you see your music in 10 years?
To be honest I feel like I’m getting known but it’s gonna be hard staying relevant and to come harder Yk. In 10 years I see me having a family and doing music as a passion or who knows maybe I’ll be up there only time and god will tell.
How do you manage yourself and how has it being over time?
It’s been kinda okay, I put everything out by myself through Unitedmasters and I would record my music in bandlab or using my computer. For beats I use beats masters but yeah it’s been good tho I’ve worked with great people. Shout out thatboydayday he’s been like a brother to me in this industry we work constantly and shit but yeah
What’s the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
Caught with drugs in high school and did a hit and run but other then that I’m a good person I stay out of trouble
You are Redwood City’s come up artist how do you feel about that?
It feels good Yk. Redwood City is my place that I love and it’s not too recognized with Artist and stuff Yk we chill over here and I’m glad I could bring my city up. Most of the cities with fam in the Bay Area are like Sam jose, East Palo Alto shout out to gangs overthere the murder capital search it up. And like Sacramento but there is good artist in here tho but they didn’t have as much as a potential or fame to come up Yk.
How would you describe your style of music?
West coast rap style, I can’t really describe it because I haven’t fully picked up one in specific. I’m always trying something new in every release
How do you put words to paper? What’s your creative process like?
I just freestyle & Hope it translates good. Then I listen to it and fix it if I don’t like it. I may change a line or word. But definitely I don’t write shit because I don’t like thinking and it sounds more artificial I just throw what comes up and just change every record.
How does your family feel about you and have you made money?
Haha nah I haven’t made anything yet, I’ve invested in my work mostly with features and promotion but I’m in the mindset where Ik it’s gonna pay off Yk. And my family in my household knows and they’re happy I’m doing what I liked and they’re supportive but not supportive about like gang related or nothing like that but it is what it is.
If you could perform anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I’m really looking forward to performing in rolling loud because people get turn up Yk and I feel like it would be a place where more doors would open up.
What’s your favorite project so far, and why?
Probably the one that’s about to come out. CATCH ME IN JULY PEOPLE . Nah but I kinda worked in this album it’s been challenging Yk because there’s songs I’m not fully doing for the past years I’ve focused more in my indie juice world Ish vibes but this is all west coast with a lot of my people and Artist like Dayday and more . But one I struggled a lot doing Krash and burn because it’s fast rap Yk and it’s hard bro. People think making music is easy but nah it’s really not bro, you need the connections there’s going to be A LOT OF LOSES BRO and for me they were expansive loses but you learn through the way but it’s dope I got good connections and I’m always down to help people out coming up and shit.
How do you see your sound evolving in the next couple of years?
I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing, I’m all about being consistent, but I’m also going to throw other shit in the mix as I go. I am growing and learning and really having fun with this shit. And I ain’t doing this professionally I feel I’m a young nigga with money so stupid shit but once I post saying I’m ready or something I’ll probably only be at the studio and doing music videos but only god will know.
