Lord BlackJx$h

Please introduce yourself real quick…


Hey there! My Stage name is Lord BlackJx$h & I'm a music artist from Michigan! Currently only 20 years old, soon to be 21, I'm in the process of making a name for myself within the music industry.


What do you do?


Right Now im working on a Christmas Themed Mixtape with two of my close friends, Tuss Lean & Diesel. We've all been making music together for the past 3-4 years, but only as of recent we have really shifted into a more professional sound and feel with our music due to an overload of positive feedback! Since we live in a very rural area, there isn't a lot of music production around us, the closest music scene to us is about 30-40 mins away, so instead of driving every day to studios and events, we decided to start our own music scene locally and to be completely honest, its been an amazing decision. I have been personally contacted by bigger producers and artist's saying that my music has great potential & that they would like to work with me & my friends. This is an awesome feeling especially since some of the people are producers that I've listened to in the past and never thought they would ever hear of me! Also, we're in the process of finding appropriate venues to perform shows at, it's a slow process but it's building up daily with baby steps so we aren't complaining (;


What´s new right now?


I just dropped my first ever Mixtape " Risen." So now Tuss Lean, Diesel & I are working on a Holiday/Christmas Themed Mixtape to up the ante and get our names out! If you'd like to hear some music from us check out: soundcloud.com/lordblackjosh
Most of our music is on Soundcloud & partially youtube. Looking to move into other big streaming services soon!
Diesel, Yung Flannel & I released our hit collab song called " Goons " & if you haven't heard it yet, you're missing out!! the feedback has been soooo crazy it's unbelievable, everyone college kids to grandparents are rocking with the song, not a day goes by without us getting snapchat's with people playing our song <3

Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?


I would say I'm more of a SuperFan of the Music Industry instead of just choosing one particular artist. With so many artists in the music industry, they all bring their own creative platform which in return gives music this amazingly diverse scene.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


thinking I was going to go platinum with every song I made. I thought i was the best rapper alive when i started, i mean you should always have that notion otherwise you wont feel confident with your music and no one else will as well.. so my best tip would be to Take Your time making your first few songs, figuring out how to count the bars with in the instrumental, understanding how to craft your lyrics to flow and ride the rhythm of the beat and to just keep making songs everyday.. not everyone has the gift to just make perfect music right out the gate, so you're going to need to just keep writing and making music, eventually you'll see the progress and its just gets better from there!

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?


My biggest challenge was getting people to actually have faith in my music. Since no one in my area has ever really taken action to make it out into the mainstream world, there wasn't much faith there. But over the past few years, my music has gradually become way better & more people are starting to actually understand music is not just a weird hobby of mine. Its a awesome feeling to go out in public and have someone say how good your music is.

We meet again in one year. What has changed?


the next 12 months will hopefully be my biggest year yet. my music is ready to be streamed and performed, i have people waiting to market my social media to gain thousands of new fans every month. Getting into venues with my friends, music videos, also will probably start a youtube channel of causal videos like what RiceGum does. Just to help promote our music easier.
