Artist iMCX releases brand single “They Dwytw” featuring Kid Gully Lucky for us we were able to briefly interview the rising act! Check it out below
1. What motivated your to write a song about those that doubt you? Why give them that energy? Explain your creative process.
The motivation came from a place of being relatable. I think most people who have goals have been mocked and doubted. Especially by those closest to us. So I wanted to take my personal experiences, package them up, and deliver them in a way people could feel my struggle. The only energy I feel I gave was that of a winner. People will go out of their way to try and make you uncomfortable and stop your progress with the energy they give. So with this song I wanted to show people who don’t want me to win you can’t stop me. My creative process is usually simple. I Listen to the energy and emotion of the production. Then deliver my personal experiences, thoughts, or a message.
2. “Before I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep and if they do kill me, I just want you to see this the real me”. Describe the real you, what do you want your listeners to know?
I was born and raised on the East side of Detroit. I wasn’t a sheltered child and my parents gave me the freedom to run the streets and experience life for myself. Detroit taught me how to be a hustler. And I don’t just mean illegally. I mean how to create a vision and find the resources to bring it to life. In a nutshell, I’ve seen and did a lot. But at the same time I want my listeners to know I’m just like them. I’m humble, I’m a thinker, I make mistakes, I’ve gone through the struggle as a youth and as a grown man. I know what it’s like to have a little something, and I know what it’s like to have to go without.
3. You wrote about some of your experiences with friends being untrustworthy. How did you use those struggles to execute your emotions in this song?
My struggles with untrustworthy people from my past allowed me to tap into a place of sincerity with this song and come from the heart. You can hear the pain in my voice if you listen closely.
4. You also spoke about being homeless. How did you use a low point in life to reach a higher level?
I used being homeless and falling off as motivation to get back on my feet. I was forced to look at myself and my mistakes and the things I did wrong that led me to that point. I also used that point in my life to assess my decisions and the types of people I allowed to get close to me who influenced my choices. It made me sharper and stronger.
