The artist we have today is called Coast from New Jersey
SO. What is your Name? where are you from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?
CO. My name is Coast , I’m from New Brunswick NJ, Exit 9🧬 and man, just the energy that comes off of music . You can really lose yourself in some lyrics and I just want the world to hear my story.
SO. Who and/or what inspires you to create?
CO. Well it all started with my boy Losey back in high school, that’s when I decided i’m really try this out , and it’s just advanced to the point that I’m at now .
SO. How would you describe your sound?
CO. Unique definitely, I don’t chase after flows , I try to be original with every drop. Holding onto a flow get stagnant after awhile , and I’m the Coast i gotta keep the wave movin’ !
SO. What is your creative process like?
CO. Definitely magical , I can sit for hours writing music like I can spend hours fixing my car , just simply throwing on a beat on , free-styling , if I say something I like I’ll write it down and base my next lyrics off that
SO. What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
SO. What is one message you would give to your supporters?
CO. I definitely see and love all ya, weather it’s 3 of you or a million my love will forever be the same towards ya
SO. What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?
CO. Shiiiiii, I can low-key kill some stand up but they not ready for that yet and definitely act 🤣
SO. What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
CO. Probably a mechanic , or something along the lines of that .
SO. Who are some artists/people you admire and why?
CO. J Cole definitely has taught me a lot , I used to bump his stuff everyday before school and it’ll give a nice lil mind-space bubble from everyone else
SO. What is the best advice you’ve been given?
CO. Kill every mic you touch. That’s all.
SO. If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
CO. The dirty side of it . There’s money for everyone , seeing as in people get 5 Million just for a video call. Yet there’s people struggling to pay rent that are meaningful to society, not a hated “icon” . But who am I to judge , they “made it” right?
SO. What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?
CO.I’m going to Disney land! Sike nahhh, get my family good . Nice crib out by no one , not a problem in sight straight living life . Touring constantly, interacting with fans , getting people homes that live on the streets, simply makin’ the world a better place for my kids to live in.
SO. What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you?
CO. @itscoast_ is my Instagram ya , thank you for taking the time to read a lil part of my story! Stick around for the rest 🧬
