Arez: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Determination

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

A Son. A Brother. An Uncle. A Friend.

Why do you do what you do?

Therapy and thrill.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I’ve known I’ve wanted to be on stage since I can remember. I’ve always been able to sing. I chose rhyme because rhyme’s universal.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

My concern of how I may be viewed in the future. Once I’m dead and gone what might people say about me?  A simple sentence helped me overcome these thoughts, “Fuck it.” A similar sentence helped me with what people may think of me now. “Fuck ‘em.”

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Eminem said, “You can do anything you set your mind to.” Madrox said, “A song is a song even if you call it a hit.” Yes, I have inspired someone directly.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Allowing myself to become distracted. I made a plan.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I shot my first music video March 28th, 2015. It’s due to be released July 1st, 2015. It is an unreleased song. Plans for another music video later this year. Old song revamped. 6 fresh tracks out at the end of this year. One song introducing a new project. Ultimate goal is to be The World’s Best Entertainer.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Feel. Acknowledge. Deal. We make mistakes. Learn. We’re human, shit happens. Take responsibility for your actions. We’re all in this together. Do you.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

You bear the power of choice.
