Who Is Bags The Boss?
SOMag: What is your Name? Where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?
BAGS THE BOSS: My name is Bags The Boss and I’m from Southside Jamaica Queens. What got me interested in music were my friends. They used to play rap music around me everyday. I liked it so much I ended up trying to imitate it. After that, I started writing about my own experiences.
SOMag: Who and/or what inspires you to create?
B. Anything can inspire me. I could be walking down the street, see a dope car and get inspired. I could trip and fall down while taking a walk. I’m inspired! (laughs). Literally anything.
SOMag: How would you describe your sound?
B. I would say my sound is more motivational and sharing person experiences.
SOMag: What is your creative process like?
B. All I need is a dope beat that I feel like writing to. I go off of the vibe so that I’m not forcing anything. There are some days I might not have anything. Then some days I cant stop.
SOMag: What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
B. Rick Ross, Jim Jones, and Drake.
SOMag: What is one message you would give to your supporters?
B. Keep supporting, I got a long way to go.
SOMag: What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?
B. I record all my records, I make all my artwork and I’ve edited some of my videos.
SOMag: What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
B. Probably designing clothes and putting all my time into that.
I admire my father for his work ethic and foolish pride. I admire anyone with the balls to go after what they want.Bags The Boss
SOMag: What is the best advice you’ve been given?
B. Save your money. We end up spending money on the wrong things most of the time.
SOMag: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
B. I’d change streaming. What they don’t tell you is that streaming payouts are low which and why they vary from service to service.
SOMag: What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself next year?
B. I would love to reach the next level of my career. Making moves and continuing to push forward.
SOMag: What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you?
