Hey SO Fam!
We recently got a chance to catch up with Krook Rock Dj and Rapper form R.I. Check out our convo follow Krook and comment if you in the mood 🙂
SO: What is your stage name ? Where you from and what got you into the entertainment business KR: Krook Rock from Providence, RI. I loved Hiphop since I first heard it. I became a DJ first and then a rapper. It wasn’t planned it just happened.
SO: Who and/or what inspired you to create ? KR: Some good gas always gets me going and as long as I’m in the mood to create I go all in wether it’s with the beats or rhymes. This is me, I live this. Don’t need much to get into a zone as long as I have no distractions.
SO: How would you describe your sound ? KR: Boombap, funk, soul, jazz and knowledge based. I’m reaching for hearts, minds and souls so I use the right elements to capture the audience.
SO: What is your creative process like ?
KR: fSpark up and listen to a beat and vibe as it comes to me. Each verse is a blunt smoked. With making beats I have various methods, but on both occasions I like to burn some good ganja and really feel the mood and then tap in.
SO: What artists would you like to collaborate with ?
KR: J. Cole, Andre 3000, Q-Tip, Black Thought, some of the legends as well… even the ones no one ever hears about.
SO: What is one message you would give to your supporters ?
KR: it’s only gonna get better than my current album “Organic Vibes” so stay tuned as I keep dropping knowledge and motivation over dope ass beats!
SO: What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?
KR: My graffiti skills are pretty sick. I influenced the scene heavy back in the 90’s doing walls all over my city.
SO: What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music ?
KR: Visual art, directing and acting or architecture.
SO: Who are some artists you admire and why ?
KR: I admire so many artists and mostly for their longevity and integrity. If you maintained in the game for mad years and kept creating heat and never played ya self for attention or a dollar then I’m giving utmost respect. Money, family, respect and community is everything.
SO: What is the best advice you’ve been given ? KR: The whole 10 crack commandments, whatever Public Enemy or KRS-One say and that I am what I think about all the time.
SO: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be ?
KR: no more music by the suckers. Eliminate Payola and have a D-league for artists to make sure they know how to perform and project their voices before they got a record all over radio.
SO: Whats next for you, where do you see yourself in the next year ?
KR: I’m gonna keep working with a lot of artists and I see myself touring overseas and producing music for the greatest talents on earth
SO: What is your social media ? How can people get in contact with you
KR: @KrookRock on all socials
