We hope you have all stayed safe and warm during the vicious winter weather, and that you've had a happening weekend! StreetRacer Productions will be hosting yet another mixtape within the next couple of weeks, so to keep you in tuned with who the talented artists are...I present to you RealTrendz:
Could you tell me a little bit about your background as an artist?
"Am an artist from San Diego, Ca I consider myself a backpack rapper."
You go by RealTrendz? Is there a story behind your artist name?
"I called myself Real at first but then that dumb ass "I love new York" show came out and a nigga name was real so I went to Trendz because I feel that I don't set trends I'm a Trend setter. I had been know by Real for so long so I just added it on and come up with RealTrendz."
What is your earliest memory with music?
"My earliest memory with music was when I was 11. Me and my cousin was playing around with the computer and Magic music maker and we did our first song called Top Doggs and we called ourselves the Bonafide Hustlers so it stuck. My label is FCMG Flyy Council Music Group and my team I rep is Trouble gang."
Who has been influential in your career?
"People that influence my rap is Lil wayne, the old Drake , the old Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Rockie Fresh, Lil Wayne for his crazy bars. Drake because he is versatile, Wiz for his creativity and Rockie and Kendrick for their realness."
Could you describe this upcoming mixtape that you've been working on? What's the vision, ideas and sound of it?
"This mixtape is going to have you rocking your head back in fourth. It has this incredible feel that you just vibe to and that's just the beats, my flow is real nice on it and I speak the truth of everyday life."
What's in store for the future?
"For the future, I'm going to do vol.2. I feel that fans are going to enjoy the tape so much and the cover is sick so its really an inspiration because I love music. With my label mate we should be dropping our sequel to our mixtape called Trendy Pilotz."
Why have you chosen to work with StreetRacer Productions?
"I chose StreetRacers Productions because yall look like yall kno what yall doing and yall look like a growing empire and its something I want to be apart of. I love music and I love rapping and StreetRacers can make the difference. Its about respect and loyalty and I know yall have it and with this opportunity I want to do more work in the future."
What do you think separates you from all the other hip hop artists out there today?
"What separates me from the other artist out is that I am a real guy. Money couldn't change me from the clothes I wear to the music I make and to the lyrics I write. I can make a difference with my music. Im no tupac but I could stand for something as big as him. Most artist do rap for money that's why we have artist like chief keef and the list of people like that but I do it for the love of rap."
