Catching Up With Lil Shies

Where are you from? Have your surroundings shaped you in a creative sense, and in what way?

I’m from Dyckman, NYC. My surroundings haven’t shaped me really in a creative way, I just tend to do my own thing but you can probably hear it in my sound or voice that I’m from the east coast.

What’s your background like?

My neighborhood isn’t the same as how it used to be, it was more dangerous and more live. Now it’s experiencing a lot of gentrification around here which sucks.

Who are your top 5 favorite artists?

I don’t have a top 5 artists because it always switches up. How I’m feeling right now I would go with something like 2Pac, Nas, Big L, Jay-Z, Max B As of currently right now? Lil Uzi, Black Kray, Adamn Killa, and Kane Grocerys

What made you start making music?

What made me start making music is just having the love for it, hearing songs and wishing I could make something as good as what I just heard.

Who are your biggest influences?

Too many names to name. I really enjoy when people who I fuck with drop new music, that influences me in a major way.

What’s your favorite song at the moment?

Be Nice To Me by Bladee

What keeps you going? How you doing mentally?

What keeps me going is all the feedback I get from people, whether good or bad responses. It makes me thankful for even having someone out there listen to me. Even if it’s one person, although the goal is to expand. Mentally right now, I’m doing alright. I feel like I put a lot of pressure on myself and that fucks up my mood but it’s just who I am and I just can’t help to feel like that sometimes. I just want to do better all the time and surpass what I’ve previously done.

How would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as a trap type of vibe, a bit gutter, and dark sometimes. I like to switch things up and be versatile so I can’t fully say that’s my style, for the most part, I can say that is true though.

What do you hope to accomplish in 2019?

To accomplish gaining more attention on my social media platforms, dropping more visuals and networking with the right people.
