The Real Explicit

Please introduce yourself real quick…


My name is Seth "Explicit" Morales & I am a Hip-Hop Artist / Producer from Chandler, Arizona (USA). My music brings you deep into what it feels like to walk around in my shoes & I pride myself on the authenticity I portray in every facet of any one of the hundreds of tracks I have on wax. I was signed to a record company at the age of 19 (Pure artistry) and did the whole label thing for many years, however that all came to an end and now I am just trying to make a name for myself on my own. I do everything you see when you come across my music, all the way down to the graphics on the covers. I do get some help with promo, thats my homie Sandy P. (Whattup Sandy!)


What do you do?


Right now I am currently recording an LP with my cousin & long time music collaborator Justin Tyme Beats (Soundcloud: @JustinTymeBeatz). I have put everything else on hold aside from writing and recording. I will be doing shows again once the final record is cut, Id imagine that would be around mid 2018… But we will see. (Im pretty well known for my live performances… I love doing it, and it really resonates with the fans. Needless to say I dont see myself staying away to long ? )

What´s new right now?


Like I previously stated, just working on the new album. I have a mixtape (The P.U.R.P.) I am ready to drop on my fans whenever I start feeling irrelevant, something to keep em busy, but I haven't felt the need to seek attention yet (Im looking at you Explicit competition). I am also working on a plethora of Explicit features for various artists world wide, I recently lowered my feature price to just $25.00 for a custom tailored Ex verse (16 bars) to be written for you and your track only, mixed, mastered, and delivered to your inbox for the price of a haircut. What a deal!

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?


Its pretty obvious that I listened to a lot of Em growing up, his music really resonated with me and was super relatable to a lot of my own adversities. As shocking as it may seem, I was always a bigger Tupac fan then I was an Eminem fan though. My boy Taylor & I would bump pac heavy 24-7… Thats what it was.

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?


The biggest mistake I made would probably be… Well… The drugs to be honest… but only slightly bigger a mistake were the drugs, over arrogance. Arrogance is a nasty by product of success… I wasn't even a sliver of a big shot, but I knew I was exceptionally good and I sure as shit let everybody else know as well. Its a bad look, and nobody wants to work with such a person. Be humble, be reasonable, as corny as it sounds, be yourself and you will do just fine. That's no bull shit kids!

How do you get gigs? Can you share any tips?


How to get gigs. Go to your local head shop, locate a flyer wire (designated area that has flyers and business cards posted up from promoters), get promoter info from flyer related to your genre/style of music, call promoter, tell him/her you are ready to sell bundles of tickets to his next event if he lets you on, rock on bro… rock on.

The next bit of advice is a little secret that I am going to share with yall cuz Im in a good mood.

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


My biggest challenge by far has been my battle with drug addiction and substance abuse. This is why I was dropped from my label and had to do a stint in rehab as well (Shouts to my boys from Reflections recovery center in Prescott AZ! Adam B. is da man!). I was fortunate enough to wind up in the treatment center I wound up in. That place with the group of dudes I got sober with… I honestly dont think any other setting would have worked for me. It trully saved my life.
