Today we’d like to introduce you to Money Making Sace Of Loose Screw Mafia.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I first started rapping my senior year of High School. I was no longer playing sports so I needed something that could keep me occupied. At first, it was just a thought, but I eventually realized I might have a talent in writing. It seems like it was such a long time ago, but it has only been five years. I still remember Mrs. Crockett telling me that I had a gift in writing, and I remember telling Marcus Sims and Tyriq Reddix that I was going to be a rapper; we were in forensic science class. I now own Loose Screw Mafia Records, and I haven’t looked back since. It’s crazy what can happen when you just take a risk.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I’m still on the road, and I personally think I’m nowhere near the destination. Over the years, I’ve learned that this is not going to be an easy journey. I’ll never forget the day of my first show; April 22,2017. I invited lots of people from my high school and social media to attend, but none of them came. The only people who came was my homeboy Phillip, my girlfriend at the time, and my stepdad. That’s when it clicked that pursuing this dream would be lonely. Obstacles are inevitable. One thing that I’ve learned and that I’m still learning is that everything occurs for a reason. People come and go. Frustration will happen. Some days I will not want to make music, family issues, etc. All of this is a part of the plan. Believe it or not, some of my best work happens when life is hitting me.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Well, first and foremost, I’m the creator of Loose Screw Mafia. Loose Screw is everything to me. It is my heart. Growing up, I always seemed to do things differently from everyone; it was something I noticed in elementary school. When you get called weird, different, annoying and crazy frequently, you start to accept it. I was just myself. It’s not like I was hurting anyone. As I got older, I started to hide my individuality. I basically wanted to fit in. But when I became around 14-15, I noticed that fitting in is lame; there’s nothing cool about it. I started to remain my self and I realized I’m just a “Loose Screw.” As far as “Mafia,” I’m a huge fan of mafia movies. The Godfather, Goodfellas, The Irishmen, and The Sopranos are my favorites. I love how family-oriented they are.
Is there something surprising that you feel even people who know you might not know about?
Well, I love watching good shows on Netflix. I have a top 5 show list, and I think it’s pretty top tier. Number one, Weeds. The show is just great, like how does a suburban mom starts pushing for the cartel. Second, Breaking Bad, R.I.P. Walter White. Third, Scandal. Fourth, Wentworth/O.I.T.N.B. I honestly can’t choose between the two. And Fifth, What Happened to the Last Monday. Now, this isn’t a show, but it’s a Netflix original, great show.
