RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW AMERICAN ARTIST SR WES
Hiya folks thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.
What made you decide that music is a thing for you?
I remember writing raps in elementary on the school index cards. I made beats on the lunchroom table. I always knew music was for me. It’s just always been a part of me.
Introduce us to you and your musical history.
I’m SR Wes, recording artist and entrepreneur, and founder of Street Rulers Ent, and Served Respectfully Apparel. Collectively, SR Ent is a team of artists, producers, engineers, graphic designers, photographers/videographers, marketing experts, etc. and we market services outside of our own label as well.
The music industry is the hardest industry in the world to progress in, How do you feel you are doing?
It’s definitely had its ups and downs for me, being set back from legal battles I’ve faced throughout my career, but you just have to come back stronger every single time. I’m super excited about the momentum we’ve built around the new single “Get It For The Low”.
We set up RGM USA and many other countries in the world to share music with America and the UK, good idea?
I believe more reach is always the best idea.
Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?
Trust no one
Let’s share the love, what artists are doing really well in your Town / City?
Skully been putting on, Beezy, Trippa, Spook D, it’s really too much talent to name where I’m from, my nephew Skrapp, my nephew Bubberrr got bars too. The whole city going up right now.
What advice would you give other artists starting out?
Learn every angle of the business and put the work in.
Did you buy anything you don’t need in the pandemic?
What was the worst experience on stage?
I hate when a mic dies
Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about.
When I was like 13 I played drums in a hardcore band.
If you had to describe your music to an alien how would you describe it?
It’s as good as water, better than air
What makes you stand out as a band/artist?
I’m gonna always give you the music you can feel in an original way that still seems familiar.
I hear you have new music, what can you tell us about it.
Yeah the new single is called “Get It For The Low” and we also just released a video to go with it
Talk me through the thought process of the new tune/s.
It’s an over the top trap song with Pablo Escobar vibes.
What was the recording process like?
Me and Butla Beatz recorded this with Phil Duckett in Greenville, SC. It took us about an hour and a half to put the song together and send it to mixing.
What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?
Well, I only wrote parts of the verses so there was a big portion of the song that was punched in line for line as I came up with them.
