We had the good fortune of connecting with iNTLCT and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi iNTLCT, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
As great a wonder of being asked that takes my mind upon , and with there being so many I try daily to live by , I’d definitely have to go with “Plant A Seed” and ” You’ll Grow” . The original slogan that I chose to present my clothing line with , and eventually the slogan for the empire created rooted from it. That wasn’t meant to be a punchline but that shows the correlation is evident. The meaning can be understood from all perspectives , every aspect , and converse understandings , kind of like how science starts with the atom , and from there , we now have technology that is literally out of this world. I most like that regardless of the journey , there’s a definite relation , because there must always be a foundation. Being an artist has opened many of different avenues of thinking , which have led to different opportunities presenting themselves. All from a seed that was planted from an interest in music , and an inspiration that was mentioned from the first interview with you guys.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Anything worth having is worth grinding to go get. We all have the mindset to want , but are we all willing to do what it takes to get there ? I try to ask myself that on the daily , and that keeps me pushing. Music is music , no artist will never be the same. Understanding that literally sets us all apart , but we just have to remember to stay in our own lanes. Gotta keep your tunnel vision , you’ll always have more than the next , and you’ll always have less. Lessons learned , are for better understandings , and now it’s time give that knowledge gained back to those on a similar quest. That’s the beauty of art , taking the lesson and turning it into the taught. , but from whatever perspective you choose to present your gift.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
It’s the exact opposite for myself , I like to go on adventures and explore the outdoors if I’m going to be away from the grind. We’d probably end up somewhere on a hike in the mountains knowing me. As far as the food spots , I’m more so into the food truck pop -ups nowadays , I love vegan soul food , so we’d definitely have to social media surf to see where’d we’d feast. Or we could explore , doesn’t matter to me . We could take a walk , cycle , trolley , buses or the skytrain , with no specific destination neither , just out in the world living and existing with the present moments.
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?
Honestly , this list would be quite lengthy , there’s so much support and gratitude to name , but to narrow it down to the readers…It’s you guys right here that took the time out and gave the interview a glance . I couldn’t thank ya’ll enough. That’s what keeps me going , and that’s who i do it for. Couldn’t forget to shoutout Corrine’s mom though. Once I was told that a music video of mine was used as an assignment at a high school , or I think college , I’m not all the way sure , but once I really realized that my music was being heard , that was even more motivation to keep giving my supporters something to listen to.
