Krystatic is an up comming rapper from Wolverhampton. If ya dont know about him yet then you will probably see his name cropping up in the enar future. Here is a little interview i did with him to give an insight into how things are going for him:
What’s your name and where you from?
I’m Krystatic and I’m from Wolverhampton
What releases have you had out to date?
I’ve had two underground mixtapes called the next big thing volume 1 and luxury life. I have recently released a new album called Stepping out the Box which is getting mailed out now by trickster.
What’s your favourite part of being a rapper/MC?
Being original, creative with my own ideas, being positive and using that positivity to create catchy hooks.
What do you think you bring to the table as an MC?
I think a unique voice with my own style and techniques which fans will love.
If you was not involved in music what do you think you would be doing?
I would be doing bricklaying that’s the fallback should in the unlikely event my music career does not take off.
Let’s talk about your current project. When’s it out? Can you tell who is involved?
My current project would be to promote my new album stepping out the box which will be out on itunes very soon, big shout outs to all the people involved on the album including artists from Tru Fam records, S-X and Marissa.
So what type of music do you listen to mostly?
I listen to a lot of Hip-Hop, R&B/Soul, Baseline, Dubstep and Grime and use inspiration from the UK and USA.
Where would you like to see yourself 5 years from now?
I would like to have gigs, shows and events global with a world tour. Get a lot of airplay on radios, music videos on MTV etc.
What have you been most proud of in your career so far?
The promotional work with trickster, my manager and the quality of my latest album, Shout out to skrilla who did the artwork.
If you could pick one producer to work with in the world who would it be and why?
Dr.Dre, his beats are world class and he is a perfectionist like me.
What’s your opinion on the current state of the charts?
Too much pop music and dance which is too commercial and artists not doing what their best at.
How do you view Hip-Hop right about now?
It’s not really pushing it as much as it used to be back in the day, it’s been all mainstreamed and commercialised, not like the old school hip-hop like Ice Cube, NWA, Jadakiss, Styles.P and LL Cool J Etc.
Would you like to see yourself in the top ten?
Yeah of course I’ve always been inspired to be successful and make a chart topping hit and have belief in my own ability.
What is your opinion on the current UK music scene?
It’s getting more commercial, I mean grime is pushing through, Dubstep is doing it too I hope a lot more UK artists breakthrough doing what they enjoy doing.
What’s next for you as an artist?
Definitely to get a UK tour going and then promote myself globally, making the music videos, getting the girls in the videos and living the luxury life like the second mixtape.
