We had the good fortune of connecting with 9to5 Th3 Producer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi 9to5, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success was that I didn’t quit. I had so many factors and obstacles in my life that would have made anyone else quit their passion but I’ve always kept a positive mind-set and stayed patient regardless of my situations.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Im a producer/beat-maker and I feel like what sets me apart from others is my ability to motivate and inspire others creatively. I love to share ideas and tips with all creatives from all different walks of life. What got me to where I am today is that I didn’t quit, I failed a lot, and I never stopped learning. No this was not easy at all, I went through so many challenges, probably every challenge you could ever go through. The lesson that I’ve learned was to get very comfortable with failure. The more comfortable you are with failure the more your’e able to persevere. I just want the world to know that my brand & story can motive others who are trying to chase their dreams the same way that I’m trying to.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Bronx-Alehouse is always a good spot for food & drinks. I would take them to my studio in downtown BK, have them listen to some new tracks I’m working on. West 4th would be another location after the studio just to get some fresh air. It’s one of my favorite places to go and clear my mind. Im really a studio rat so most of the time I will be in the studio lol.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Not to be too spiritual but I love to firstly give God a S/O. When my passion was low or if I felt like giving up, God has always found a way to somehow show me that I’m on the right path. For example, I would bump into to people on the street and they would ask me “Hows the music going?” or “Are you still making beats”. Questions like that would often give me perspective that Im doing the right thing right or Im slacking and need to work harder. I also want to give credit to this book that I read by Napoleon Hill called “Think and Grow Rich”. This book really changed my mindset by forcing me to my thoughts into actions. We can all dream but what separates the dreamers from the doers is action. You must puts yours thoughts into actions if you want them to come true. bottom line.
