When did you know you would become an artist?

When I was 6 and singing next to my father having the time of my life

How would you describe your style of music?

It’s R&B/Soul with a hip-hop twist. When hip-hop was first blowing up and just beginning to approach the level it’s on today a lot of aspiring artist looked to old R&B/Soul album as instrumentals. That evolved to the sampled records being widespread and so on and so forth until you have what we have today. With my music I’m doing it a bit in reverse. I’m taking music you’d expect to hear someone spit on and making R&B/Soul tracks. I regularly incorporate spoken word/slam in my music because I was a poet and writer first.

How is your music different from what we’ve been hearing lately?

My music is different in a few ways. First, the process I just broke down. As an artist you want to do something different and I believe that starts with the foundation. My process is my foundation. Another way I differ is my aim. I am making, or aiming to make, music that is real to me and thereby real to those who hear it. Relating what I see to what is going around me both in my local community and on the bigger scale and putting it into a song. I look at myself sort of like the conscious rapper in a lot of ways. Typically, that would make me a Neo-Soul artist. Where I differ from them and have more similarities with backpackers is my soundscape. My soundscape is more danceable, more drawing to the ear. Finding that balance between the music and the lyrics is rough.

If there was anyone you could work with who would it be & why?

Living? Definitely Stevie Wonder. He is an absolute genius and I believe, if nothing else, I’d learn tons of tricks and information just from a short interaction with him. I’d also want to work with Prince for the same reasons.

Who are some artists you’ve worked with in the past?

James Minor, a budding MC out of Baltimore. Q of Rebelizim, a great young producer with some heavy credits to his name already. I’ve gotten music from a lot of great producers but haven’t worked hand-in-hand with any of them yet…the downside of being in Tokyo. Sean Divine has been great with my mixing, I know he greats tired of me sending him pages and pages of requests and instructions on how he can make me sound better but he’s been a great sport and extremely precise.

What should the fans expect?

Expect a story. Everything I do is either my story, the story of someone I know or the story I believe somebody needs to hear.

Dolla is known for networking with various artists in the hip-hop genre, both on the indie and major level. Keeping in his tradition of working along side his favorite artists, “Brickz” is no different. Being of Haitian decent he reached out to fellow Haitian artist, Zoeja Jean, from Miami, Florida.

Stage name?
Mike Melinoe

Detroit

Who are your Influences?
Kendrick Lamar To David Ruffin. Biggie to Nas. I have a wide category with music. I don’t like all but do favor a lot.

When did you know you would become an artist?
Well I’ve been wanting to pursue this since 8. But I never had the confidence until 17.

How would you describe your style of music?
My style would be a complex nerd to hip hop. Creativity in general.

How is your music different from
what we’ve been hearing lately?
My music isn’t basic radio rap. Meaning it’s now hype rap. I tell stories in rhymes. But most importantly I don’t follow ppl. I create from the mental on.
If there was anyone you could work with who would it be & why?

I’m not to big on todays artist so prolly Ab-Soul, KendrickLamar. Because they’re music is so intellectual nd I can relate. Radix, YC The Cynic & Cash Jay these are folks I know personally nd I admire their craft.

Umm nobody honestly I don’t really see a lot of artist as my flavor in music.
What should the fans expect?

Fans should expect nothing but what they wanna expect. I make music because it’s beyond the thought of passion. A lot of people mimic folks to obtain their talent, but I only can give people my story nd my imaginations I’ve developed in life.

Ambrie @ambrieee

5 Nov

Stage Name?

Ambrie/ Ambrie Billions

What City & State are you Reppin?
Los Angeles born and raised !

Who are your Influences?
My major influence is Michael Jackson because he gives me so much
motivation, I admire his perseverance.

When did you know you would become an artist?
I knew for a fact that I had no other aspirations than to sing since
I was about seven. I have always loved to perform and dance, although
I tried a lot of different things, sports, etc but I’ve always
passionately ended up preferring singing over anything else.

How would you describe your style of music?
I would say my style is very soft and edgy. I’m really picky when it
comes to beats, like I try not to be too gangsta but not too white
girl. I guess it’s something you can fall asleep to but also twerk to.

How is your music different from what we’ve been hearing lately?
My songs are a description of love and characteristics we commonly
feel. The last song I wrote, Timeless, is very dreamy and I tried to
create a song people can relate to, without being cliche lyric-wise.

If there was anyone you could work with who would it be & why?
I would be really excited if I could just work with The Dream because
I feel like he can relate to my style and his songwriting is amazing,
he really brings out the emotions.

Who are some artists you’ve worked with in the past?
I have a collaboration with J.E.T. who is a rapper under Def Jam.
Everything else I handle is a solo project, but I definitely want to
continue to expand my collaborations with other artists.

What should the fans expect?
Expect the music video to my single Timeless” in mid November. I am
also currently working on my first album which is due to be release
this month as well. Also more designs will be added to my clothing
line “Billions” soon!
