Interview With ATL Aspiring Artist Finesse Cobain

Finesse Cobain

Hey Finesse Cobain! How are you today?

“Blessed, very blessed.”

Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

“A lot of people don’t make it where I’m from. It’s also a lot of fake love and no support so I would say it’s just been a long journey, a lot of ups and downs as an artist but just taking the good with the bad and growing from it to reach new levels. I would say that got me to where I am today, having perseverance and determination. Everything I go through I feel like it’s for a reason, it’s for a greater purpose. I have a story and it has to be told.”

Where are you from?

“I was born and raised in New Jersey, but eventually I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina where I started to make a name for myself. Then from there, I relocated to Atlanta GA where it all started to happen for me, life started changing.”

When did you start music?

“I started music at a young age, I feel like I was born with the love for music and the way you can express yourself with words and a beat. I had to be about 6-7 years old wanting to be a rapper but I made my first real song at the age of 12 to the Tupac beat, Ambitionz az a ridah.”

How did you get into music?

“I started realizing that music could be the way out for me and everyone around me. The hoop dreams didn’t fall through, we could never even stay in school long enough to really play sports. We all were either dropping out, locked up, always suspended and expelled, or just didn’t get good grades to be able to. So music just felt natural.”

What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

“One of the most challenging things I would say was me having to learn to walk again after almost being fatally shot. They couldn’t get the bullet out because they said it would either kill me or leave me paralyzed. I still have the scar from below my chest all the way down past my waist. The doctors straight up told my family I wasn’t going to make it, but I’m still here.”

Who inspires you the most musically?

“My biggest inspiration growing up was Lil Wayne, he’s the reason I started rapping. As of right now today it would be Drake.”

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

“I feel like the streets chose me to be the heart, and by that, I mean the heart of the slums. People always told me they can feel and relate to the pain in my voice, with my unique melodic tone. I just speak about what I have been through and what I go through. I lost so many friends from either dying or to them having life in prison. I got people that’s living through me from inside a cell, I got people that’s looking down on me still wanting me to win, I got people that’s here with me every day that still depend on me.”

Any new music coming out soon?

“My album Slum Baby is dropping this summer, it’s featuring artists such as Boosie Badazz, Soulja Boy, Lil Poppa, and a few more.”
