Hi how you doing? Introduce yourself to the readers of TalkingAllThatRap.com.
Hey Guys I’m Paul AKA Simplicity – I hale from the east coast and live in the UK, I don’t want to be famous, I want to work.
So tell us about your latest release and where people can get it.
All our latest Releases come out on iTunes, Amazon Music, Deezer, Spotify, Google Play etc. I have 9 albums out, 8 are public and one is by request. So in all I love to work. Make music every day. just search, iTunes or Amazon, simplicity addicted to rap or nerd association.
This is a tough question, and I know some people like to remain humble, but if you had to give a reason why you think people should check your music, what would you say?
Because I Know someone out there is feeling the way I feel, whether it be nerdy political fun annoying jokey, whatever my albums come across as, I know someone is feeling the same.
Out of all the songs you have released or been involved with, which song would you say was the popular? What is your number one track?
It actually made it to number 138 in unsigned chart on iTunes, called a song, I am, it was my burn to mr dexy for kind of screwing me over and I wanted a war, haha
In the whole process involved in making music which due you think is the most exciting?
Making the instrumental… that’s where my heart is. I make all my Instrumentals live as in Keys Rhodes Piano Bass drums and Guitar, because my dream is to have a live band behind me.
When your recording what is the vibe like in your studio, do you have mood that helps you create?
I shut my brain off and let my pen and mouth do the work haha, no homo, I meant rapping, the mood is not important to me really. I like to record at peak emotionality and write in pure silence.
How do you like your production, do you prefer original played beats or more sampled based production?
Played and sampled both, because they both usually come from live played anyways, sampling is just pure fun if you have an MPC… I DO HAHAHA
What producers do you work with and are there any producers you’d like to work with?
Poisonous Poets producer also Immortal techs guy, Ice tea, Dr Dre, Steve Rizzo from stables sound studio in Rhode Island a lot really hhaha
The Hip-Hop scene is really spilt between the mainstream and underground, do you think this makes it harder to get noticed by so many different types of rap fans?
Yes it does, mainstream has literally rolled off the back of what the last guy has made, and underground is trying to be so different from one another, so really individuality and originality lie in the underground, but mad downloads and car bumps and what not clubs and ish, is all mainstream. haha
I don’t knock it but I don’t rate it.
A lot of artists have some sort of free download project. Do you think doing these kind of releases helps or hinders sales on iTunes?
Yes, it took us a while to gain the contracts we needed but it’s always said. Hard work pays off. Hopefully hahah
Image seems everything these days, so let’s talk about your artwork. Do you come up with concept or does your designer do it? Tell us more about who done the cover to your latest release.
No concept, usually album title concept. So whatever I feel really.
Even though You Tube is on-line TV Station, it seems to also be the place where most people go to listen to music. Do you think putting songs up with an artwork image or photo is detrimental to your full music videos?
Not everything. Only teasers and tasters. We have as a label about 110 songs out but only 7 on YouTube. Mostly performances go on YouTube, and also my beat tape mix.
Do you have anything on You Tube or you own Channel?
Yup. Just search Midnight Music.
Have you ever done anything for any DVD or on-line TV channels? Any freestyles or interviews on-line to check out that are recent?
Nope. Not till now,
Okay before you go is there anybody you’d like to thank or anybody you’d like to shout out?
