Young Cypher Billions – Up (Prod. Lord Quan) “VMG Exclusive Interview & Review”
New York City Hip Hop artist Young Cypher Billions returns with new promotional track UP produced by Lord Quan.
After a lengthy hiatus New York City based Hip Hop recording artist Young Cypher Billions returns to music with the release of his debut promotional single UP produced by Lord Quan. The song which dropped this past Friday the 13th to Cyphe’s official SoundCloud account was released as a promotional track in preparation for his up and coming debut project “No Sleep Till Brooklyn”. We’ve been following Cyphe since his early 2017 release of Ball and have been patiently waiting for the release of its accompanying mixtape “Made in Brooklyn” until the song was removed from the internet and Cyphe seemingly went quite only to resurface with his new song Up, which we feel was well worth the wait.
VMG had a moment to catch up with the New York native to check out the DOPE new single from Young Cypher Billions.
1) What keeps you motivate when it comes to your music?
One of my biggest motivations when it comes to music is my family. They’ve been supporting me since day one even when I was getting into trouble with like the law and stuff like that they where always there for me and so a lot of what I do now is for them, like I want to be able to do things for them as a way to say thanks for all the love they’ve showed me.
2) When you think of “Vintage Media Group”, what comes to mind?
When I think of vintage media group I think of like outlet a way for someone like my self to get their voices Hurd. As an indie or underground artist I feel like it’s important that you have the support of local blogs to help push your career to that next level.
3) Being that you are from New York, what is the state of Hip-Hop there? How would you titled your style of music?
New York is so iconic when it comes to hip hop like being the place where it actually began I feel like New York like personally holds its hip hop to a certain standard or a certain quality. With that being said I feel like there was times when New York was in its prime as far as the music we put out and I don’t feel we’re in that space at the moment. I feel like the south has that momentum going for it but I also feel like it’s a cycle and soon New York will be pushing Artist and music that will have us at the top again. And honestly I wouldn’t title my music, like I feel as if the industry and just the listeners in general try to put the artist in these boxes like your a rapper, or your a hip hop artist, and I don’t agree with that. I’m a fan of all types of music and I try to incorporate the things I like into the music I make so it might be rap and hip hop but there can also be elements of jazz and blues and r&b or punk and rock you know what ever the vibe is so I don’t put labels or titles when it comes to my music.
4) With your most recent music single “Up” is Crazy NICE, I Really Like It… can you give us some details on how you came up with that song?
Everything got me starts with the instrumental. That lays the foundation for what ever the song is going to become and I was lucky to work with a super talented producer Lord Quan on this one. And usually what happens when I’m working with a good producer is ill here the beat and be inspired instantly. Like it won’t be too much thought or I won’t have to force my self to come up with something. And that’s pretty much what happened I Hurd the beat and just went from there and really I didn’t even know what I was writing as I was writing it, it wasn’t until everything was finished and I was reciting it that I New I had something really dope.
5) Where can your fans & supporters find you online? Via Twitter, Facebook, etc.?
For all my fans and supporters if you want to find me online you can go to any social media service or streaming service and search “Young Cypher Billions” and i guarantee I’ll be the only person that pops up and from there you guys can follow, stream, download and all that stuff. Thanks for ya support and love.
6) Who are some of your influences?
I’m really influenced by anything everything all type of music all types of artist like it don’t matter to me. I draw inspiration from like Travis Scott then maybe a little from the Beatles then I might see something that Prince did that I’m like yeah that’s dope so it just comes from everywhere pretty much.
7) Any Last Remarks?
