Exclusive interview with Sara Savage
What’s your background? What got you into rap music?
I’m from Atlanta. BORN AND RAISED. So my entire culture is rap. hip hop. lingo. game. the streets. It’s being a pretty girl in the hood. Learning from the biggest bosses in the hood. Having crazy game. Mixing book smarts with street smarts. Going to jail a lot. 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?
My parents bred me for it like a frenchie
If it wasn’t for music, where would you be now?
Maybe married again with more kids, with a holistic spa or skincare company. In school to be a doctor. For dermatology. Not that I can’t still do all of that and I plan to.
How did you come to realise that music was the way forward for you?
All my life, through everything, even when I denied music, music was always the answer for me. For everything. So its just plain and clear to me.
If you had to sacrifice one skill, which would you least like to let go, and why?
Playing instruments. Because I’ve met so many better than me at playing. It’s like yeah I can do it but id rather use someone better than me. Because my focus is more my vocal and my words and my dance moves.
In what way do you aim to make a difference?
I hope to be for other what my favorite artists have been for me. Inspiration. Hope. Mantras to keep going. Sometimes you need to be able to look up to someone with similarities to you or your situations, and watch how they handle shit to help you get by. That’s why I love artists like drake and future and The Weeknd so much. They’re so inspirational and vulnerable. Not trying to be some perfect idol.
Who’s your fashion icon, and why?
I love all things Kanye. I love Grace Jones. I love Prince. I love Michèle Lamy, wife of Rick Owens. These are a few people I pull from when it comes to style. I have a unisex style. Sometimes I like to wear barely nothing, sometimes I want my entire body and head covered.
What’s the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
48 counts of Attempted murder. As a teenager. Locked up with no bail. That wasn’t the last time the block was hot for me. But I got way smarter with shit as years go by. I was a super young jit moving silly. I beat all my cases by the way too.
Where is your career heading? What’s the vision?
Regardless of where it goes and how it gets there I’m really enjoying the ride. I have so much fun and every day is like a nee adventure. There’s ups and downs with this shit but I’m in love with it. So in one way or another I’ll always be in the music industry. Even if that’s developing other talents and artists, overall that’s where I see myself. Running a label. Involved as a major play maker. I’m here to stay and I’ll do what I gotta do to make it happen.
Good interview questions for rap artists about music
How would you describe your style of music?
Atlanta rap for sure. Wit lingo. Real stories. Situations and vulnerability. And I give game if u listen closely. But then the whole other side. She’s a 5 octave singer.
Southern church choir, soul r&b vibe. I’m bringing her out more.
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 down I don’t really have time. I feel like I loose creative vibes when I try to write it down. My shit comes from my heart and soul.
When it comes to performing, what’s your style?
I usually have between 4-12 dancers on stage with me. My show is an experience. I’m a dancer FIRST. Before I could talk I was dancing. Performing. So I’m going to always give a full show. Never low energy or me just walking around. Not hating on the people who do it, some people can do it and it works. But I’m a performer. I use the entire stage.
If you could perform anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I’m really looking forward to performing in Jamaica. And parts of Africa. Amsterdam too I heard they turn the fuck up. I just wanna go where the vibes are. And where no ones gonna get locked for some dumb shit lol.
What’s your favourite project so far, and why?
Probably the one that’s about to come out. The R&B EP. but if we’re talking stuff that’s out already, then my mixtape called Hermès Mercury. When I did that I think I had finally found my balance with my style and my switch.
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 in no race with anyone because no one can do what I do. Respectfully and with love I say that.
