Tell us about your background getting to where you are today and how did you get into music?
I go by Orchestrate96. Born in Edo State, Nigeria, West Africa. Growing up, I never planned to become a creator or musician. I got inspired to start making music from artists like G-easy. Albums like “Must be Nice” and “These Things Happen” are classics in my books. I started out producing music but that did not last at all. In college, my best mate at the time was an artist. He had made a handful of tracks. On a faithful day, I got an instrumental for him to write to. I ended up writing a verse to the same track. We released our first track together called Dirty Dance in 2018 and I have not stopped recording ever since.
Where are you from?
I am from Houston, TX
When did you start music?
I started making music towards the end of 2018.
What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
The most challenging thing I have had to overcome is building a fan base from scratch. The challenge comes with the territory. Still overcoming this obstacle.
Are you currently signed or independent?
I am currently an independent artist.
Who inspires you the most musically?
At the beginning of my rap career, G-easy inspired me the most to make music. Currently, Saint Jhn and Comethazine inspire me. I enjoy their unique styles and cadence. I love the confidence in their sound.
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
I want listeners to be inspired to make money. I also want fans to be inspired to become better versions of themselves. I want them to do this while keeping in mind that they can have a career in doing something they love. For example, their hobbies.
Any new music coming out soon?(Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is coming out?
I have a melodious and rhythmic track with Houston artist, OMB Bloodbath and Space KID dropping on the 21st of May 2021. The track is called Pop Out. This song is a Summer Anthem for sure. You can play it in your run or with friends and just vibe.
What is your greatest achievement as a musician?
So far, my greatest achievement is inspiring others whether known or unknown to build a career in doing something they love. The release of my debut album called Young & Naive was also a great achievement. The lead single, Stack Up reached thousands of people on YouTube.
Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?
I do not produce my own instrumentals. I work with different producers virtually. Home or oversees. Producers like, Kevin Hues, Houston Producer Big Kang & Tobin, Chain, Dru Stylez, Kenwiza and a host of others.
Who is one artist you wish you could work with?
One artist I want to work with is Houston Artist, Maxo Kream. I like his flow and word play. He understands both the good and pit falls of being a rapper from Houston.
What does a day inside your shoes look like?
To be in my shoes, the only attribute you must possess is the ability to stunt like me. But, for real, all you need is proper time management. Make time for school, work, writing and performing songs, friends, and loved ones.
