Cashtro Crosby: Interview


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

Dedication , practice & repetition. You need all off these three thing to have the three things stated, they all work hand in hand, & I believe in those values very highly. I couldn't imagine life without passion. 

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

Well My name is Jay, but they call me Crosby. Cashtro Crosby, Fidel. I'm a son, a  Uncle, a very loyal person, just a overall jiggy guy. I got big plans for the world & Triple B , musically I hope to break through & get folks my story.

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because the worst thing in this world is wasted talent. My mom & the bronx tale taught me that & I hold it high till this day. I could be doing anything in this world, I'm the type of person that I give my heart a 110% in it, no matter if it's work or for play, I try to make it the most epic i can. I also do what I do because I've also seen my friends & even family get on the wrong path by listening to friends & wrong decisions.

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

Well when I moved to Canada, I started writing more & more , I didn't have my full out paper work yet, so all I could do was create music, so I did. After the release of my 1st project The crosby show in Ottawa I just kept it moving consistently, changing my styles , but keeping concepts for the music. The passing of my Cousin Jehru made me realize you gotta leave ya stamp on the world while you can.

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

So Far I've been blessed & fortunate to not have too many tragic passings, other than my cousin & some close school friends , but my Family have always helped me & my team , Triple B, my big bro's , Skip, Mes , Noel, Billz, Pops, all family.

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

I take a lot of inspiration from everywhere like Pop Culture. My Pops is a big influence on me in general , my idol, along with other huge musicians & just figures like Malcolm X, Fidel  Castro, powerful people I was ever curious about. Hopefully I have inspired, that's why I do it.

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

Other than starting earlier in life, I don't really have any mistakes. I always try to do the best within my means, so I'm very happy what I've done so far.

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

Well I dropped a Free Double disc Mixtape called A Million Fans in January, & we just dropped "Got My Cash Up" for the early summer banger for the radio. I'll be dropping a lot of music including a Drill EP called Trill God & some more single's & videos coming too. Shows will be announced as well.

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

Well my motto is " No pumpfaking" , so basically whatever your going out to do in life, put your all in it, don't half a__ it haha. Make sure you take care of your family & team, and just be great, don't hate. Yea , that's it.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I'mma do it OG and give shout outs… S/O My team Triple B , Mes, Vic , Skin, City, Chase, skip , the fam, 25K Stello, Billz, No-Dza lol, All my real fam & supporters. Thank Babes N Gents as well, dope concepts & dope website & clothing !!
