We had the good fortune of connecting with Brandon Isaac and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brandon, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I think of risk as bricks to build your artistic foundation. When you walk through door of “Risk” you are walking into the unknown. When you are in the space of the unknown that opens up the door to being uncomfortable. Uncomfortablity breeds growth. Through that process you get to experience what it’s like to become something; Or should I say discover a different part of yourself. I’ve fallen in love with that process and it’s played a big role on my artistic path. I don’t even consider them risk anymore. I’ve become comfortable stepping outside of my self. In a way I’ve fallen in love with death. Killing versions of myself to become my highest self. It’s an arduous internal process. But I’m here for it. I won’t be done with it until it’s time for me to leave earth.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I would consider myself a performing artist. I love to play with words and create my own spells. Luring the listener into my world to join me in my healing process. I’m an EMCEE. I want to master my rhetoric; Through teaching the arts to young artist and helping them find their Artistic voice. Maybe that’s what separates me from others I guess. That’s kind of hard question to answer, I will leave that to the listener and the ones who know my character.
I’m Still growing as a professional. I’m just a student in the Dojo. I have not Mastered my craft yet. There is so much more to learn about the craft and myself. True artistry is a spiritual journey, It starts inside out. My interior life is where I do the most work and have the most challenges. No matter where you go on this earth you have to deal with you. I’m a community guy. I don’t really care about what others think. I just want to be remembered as a human who was of service and high character.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to My Mother and Stepfather Latrice and Tyrone Hall. Also My father Bret Isaac. Along with my four siblings Jackie, Tre, Joshua, and Jordyn. I am nothing without my village.
I also would like to dedicate my shoutout to my producer and best friend FreeMind. He has played a major role in helping be the best artist I can possibly be.
And last but not least; I would like dedicate my shoutout to a Nonprofit that I’m proud to work with called “Wordplay Cincy”. They allow me to be the artist that I am while I help cultivate the voices of young artist in my community.
