When did you realize music was the path you wanted take? – I always wanted to be involved in music in some shape, form or fashion. I used to be a DJ, actually my mom is a writer also well used to be and she wrote songs for artists. It was something I’ve always been around background wise. I realize I wanted to really take music serious when i left college.
Who has been your music inspiration? – My kids are number 1! My music inspiration has really been the sound of music. I also like creative thinking that goes outside the box through artists that push further like Kanye, 50 cent ,etc So many names to name all of them, but the list is long, lol
Favorite thing to do when you hit the studio ? – lol, that depends on what studio I’m at. We have an in house studio called VICTORY PALACE so when I’m there I just chill for the first hour or so just to catch the vibe. Positive vibes gotta be right. If the vibe ain’t right, we can’t make nothing happen; good energy makes good records and that’s what I’m about.
Who do you think has control over the music game now? – People are more in control over themselves more now, with a lot of independents doing there thing which helps in a case like mine. Artists are smarter now, not that they were dumb before but today’s artists learned from yesterday’s artists. It’s important to know what moves to make and what not to do to get more money and make the right things happen.
Top 5 albums ever created ? – This is hard because I know I’m going to leave something off but the ones that have done it for me are:
Dr Dre – “Chronic 2001”
Kanye West – “College Dropout”
50 Cent – “Get Rich or Die Trying”
2 PAC – “Makaveli”; TO LIVE AN DIE IN LA is 1 of my favorite songs
I would have to say my 5 is a toss up of like 10 different albums from new to old, but i would say
BIG KRIT – “Cadillactica”
Why do you call yourself nice major ? Well Nice was given to me by women, lol because of the way I’ve always dressed. I added Major because it’s Big, its a statement, it means everything i want to do is Big and on a Major scale.
Always new music and videos!!! http://www.nicemajor.com
