Interview With New York Artist Dre Mckfly

Hey Dre Mckfly! How are you today?

“I’m good I’m flying high, can’t complain God’s been good to me.”

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

“To be honest I have been through a lot. I started writing and recording at the age of 14 and just kept at it. I was solely into lyricism due to me being drawn to hearing and creating substance. I was on Yo! MTV and BET at the age of 16. It brought a lot of attention to the labels around that time so I started doing business with Warner.”

Where are you from?

“I rep Long Island to the fullest but I was born in the Bronx. After the Bronx, I lived in Brooklyn and Queens for some time then went to high school and college in Long Island.”

 When did you start music?

“I started really young at 14. I used to try and memorize all of Biggie’s verses and because he died on my birthday I felt like that meant something for me to always honor his legacy as an artist because I wanted to become one.”

How did you get into music?

“I always wanted to do music but after my first video went viral and I was on TV, I got that high and never wanted to come down. I just kept writing and fell in love with all types of genres and sounds and tried to adapt to be as versatile as possible trying to get those 10,000 hours in.”

Are you currently signed or independent?

“I’m currently independent. I had a few offers from Def Jam and some with Atlantic, but I’m just waiting for the right time. I’m going to keep releasing singles then when my album is finished I plan on going with one of the major labels to help push my vision.”

Who inspires you the most musically?

“I get a lot of inspiration when you don’t hate on people and you genuinely show love. It’s easier to be inspired. The moguls of course Jay-Z and Diddy, but I get inspired by other artists as well such as Big Pun, Jadakiss, Fabulous, DMX, and G-Unit. Those are the artists I really grew up on, listening to, and could not stop. You also have Dipset & Kanye and I get moved by how well they produce and work on their sounds and branding. My favorite rapper is Rick Ross.”

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

“I want them to take away that you can’t put me in a box & I can make all types of records when it all comes down to it. I want to motivate my fans and family that substance will always be the most important part about music to me.”

Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is it coming out? What is it about?

Just know the music is getting better and better. The time and quality and creativeness is being shown more and more in each record so I have a style anybody could rock with. A lot of music is coming out this Summer and Fall, and my music is about my lifestyle now to show my fans we are only going up and nothing can stop this manifestation in glory.”
