Zay Brown: Learning to self motivate myself to make the music I wanna make and not worrying about the negative energy this world has to offer and surrounding myself with the positive thoughts and people

Hearing people tell me they genuinely enjoy listening to my music that it helped or did something for them
We asked: What do you hate most?
Zay Brown: Not being as consistent as I know I should be I hate that I don’t put more energy in my music
We asked: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
Zay Brown: To me I would change the amount of people that get screwed over for trying to invest in themselves as artists I understand you can’t really buy your way into the industry but at the same time it’s a shame of how many people are getting played because they believe in there music
We asked: What drew you to the music industry?
Zay Brown: I was always a singer growing up I singed in my church choir I was always afraid of being heard but I realized that I had no reason to be scared either there gonna like you or there not it’s that simple but right before I lost my sister in a car accident I had began rapping for fun with my friends we would freestyle to random beats on YouTube every day then I got to a point where I wanted to start trying to record my own songs it’s been a bumpy road but I’m glad I stayed on the same path I’ve definitely come a long way from when I first started
We asked: Who are you inspired by? Please explain your creative process
Zay Brown: My favorite rapper growing up was Eazy E and Nas can’t forget about any of the other greats from NYC from B.I.G. To Big L Gang Starr the list goes on and on right now I’d have to say J. Cole is easily my favorite Artist because of everything he had to overcome to get to where he is today And then made an entire family in dreamville I would love to sign to that label one day and be apart of Revenge of the dreamers I know that album is going to be incredible but my creative process is simple I take a situation I’ve been through or witnessed and I create a story from that add a dope melody to it and make sure my verses are something to remember because first impression is extremely important but I will always be myself no matter what
We asked: What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps
Zay Brown: It’s tough for me to answer this because I’m still a new artist myself but from everything I’ve learned so far I’d say if music is truly something you wanna pursue go for and aim for the moon because you never know you might land on a star I’m just a kid from Connecticut with dreams of going far
