(New Exclusive Interview) Chicago Artist Kpilla Talks Music And New Project With VMG
1. How long have you been creating music?
I taught myself how to write music in(2003)
2. Breakdown your style and sound?
My style has a magnetizing appeal. It mirrors my wardrobe, unconventional…Lbs You never know what to expect. Every song has a refreshing cadence that keeps the listener ears to the speaker.
3. What makes you different from the artist that are out today?
I make TIMELESS MUSIC. The bulk of artists that are out today won’t be played in the years to come because majority make music that mimic everything that’s popular. All of my music comes from the cardiovascular region which means it’ll enter every heart that it reaches.
4. You just dropped the video for Hustlaz Anthem. What is the concept behind this record and video?
The visual displayed the WestSide of Chicago and a constant reminder that police are always present in the horrific city known as ChiRaq. Yet the show must go on. The catchy hook/chorus states
“ I put it all on the line this ain’t a game to me, stop ‘playn’ wit me”
“If I fall Ima crawl til the pain decrease, no containing me”
“We all just tryna get paper/praying 12(police) don’t take us”
Ain’t never been no hater, cause that’s lame to me…
As a hustler I always found different ways to make money. I never understood how someone could HATE another person when we all breathe the same air and have the same amount of time in a day. In conjunction with that the police may kill or take us(black ppl)to jail on any given day(WHAT A FEELING)!!!
5. What is the hardest thing you had to overcome and how did you overcome it?
My father died from stomach Cancer when I was 13. This is one the hardest things I’ve ever faced. Knowing that I have to go through life without the man who knew how to survive in the frigid streets of Chicago. I learned from the streets and rap music how to navigate the land. My mom was a great parent but a woman can’t teach a boy how to be a man.
6. Where do you see your brand and career in the next 5 years?
I’ll definitively be a household name. I’ll also have billboard songs written for myself and other stars in the music industry. I see movies, clothes, restaurants, real estate, and financial freedom for my family. Something no leaf has done on my family tree.
