We had the good fortune of connecting with Fivestar and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Fivestar, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I pursued a music career after I felt the satisfaction of communicating my vision to an audience. That feeling is unmatched, it’s the ultimate high for me.

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.
What sets me apart from most artist is my ability to freestyle off the top of the head and is my story telling ability and in depth metaphors.

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.
I would like to take them to melrose then rodeo dr to go shopping. Then we would hit sky’s taco on pico for lunch. Then we would link with J mic to hit the studio in Hollywood.

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?
Biggest shout-out goes to both of my grandmothers. Without them ain’t no telling where I’d be. Special s/o to the ones around me who motivate me and had my back. It’s so many names but my people’s know I love them to death.
