Upcoming 100: There are thousands of artists trying to do what you are doing, what do you think gives you an advantage to break into mainstream America?
Hot Dizzy: I have been told by many people that I am a harmonizing narrative rapper and have my own style so it helps me stick out when im heard
Upcoming 100: I’ve heard your latest music and it’s amazing! I can definitely tell your sound has evolved over the past few years from previous songs we’ve heard from you online. What are your thoughts on the evolution of an artist and the evolution of music today?
Hot Dizzy: With artists it evolved to a new sound and meaning
With music its all became a complete new style and everyone is staying with same style, and soundin the same so I feel nowadays theres no heart in music and that they talk about everything randomly (notall artist music but most)
Upcoming 100: Do you have other passions in life? Do you believe passion is an essential part of success?
Hot Dizzy: Yea, i wanted to play basketball when i was younger but that wasn't meant for me to happen so i switched to music which was always my main passion and i put it down for a while but now im older Im realizing people seem react more and it made me want to take it more seriously. Yes you have to want to ut to actually do it right and succeed.
Upcoming 100: With your current success and working with a renowned PR firm such as Starlight PR, What advice would you give to someone just starting out in his or her career who doesn't even have a studio to record but would love to do what you are doing now?
Hot Dizzy: I would tell them to keep chasing that dream, i started out with nothing and did it all by myself with help of few people. I didn't have a studio or anything more then paper, pen, a phone, and headphones and as of now still learning stuff as i go and I haven't seen the royalties yet but im still pushing and goin for it. I feel if my mysic is still a inspiration to people and motivating then i am in the right direction
