Joining us for an interview is the fantastic MoeskyBand$
To start the interview off, how long have you been making music?
I have been making music for about 1-2 years.
Who are some of your influences?
Young Thug, Chris Brown, Meek Mill, G Herbo, Lil Reese, Gucci Mane, and Pee Wee Longway.
Where are you from?
I am From Texas. I was born in Fort Worth, TX but spent the majority of my life in Arlington, TX.
You say your name is MoeskyBand$. Can you explain the meaning behind your rap name?
MoeskyBand$ is a self created name that I made up when I started liking AutoTunes and wanted an animated name to symbolize the creativity of my voice. It’s “Moe” which means money over everything and the last part is “Sky” which is pronounced “Skee” in reference to being icy, clean cut, well mannered, and well dressed.
There’s a lot of competition these days when it comes to music. How do you maintain the inspiration to keep going?
I grew up playing AAU basketball and I’ve played against numerous people that are in the NBA as we speak and others are at a D1 school. I’ve never been afraid of competition. That’s what makes me want to go harder.
How do you feel like you are doing within the rap game? Do you feel like you are progressing?
I feel like progression is whatever you want it to be. Some people can say $100 is progression, others can say $1000 is progression. It all depends on who you are. I feel like I’m getting better with every song and I feel like we’re making a buzz and our buzz is about to create a sting on the rap game.
One last question. If you got a record deal today, what would be the first thing you would buy?
If I got a record deal today I probably would want to start a clothing company that sold our own brand as well as some of the top brands out there.
