Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?

I'm an independant underground rap artist name Tunez. I'm also in a local rap group called "Esoteric Prophecies" or for lack of words "EP" with my boys KJ3 and Paulie (Also known as Big Nate.) I compose, produce, and all together create rap music. I do things such as write the lyrics, make the beats, sound check the songs, and edit the songs to perfection. But it's not only my songs that I do this for; I also help produce songs for my boys KJ3 and Paulie and when we do a group song, me and KJ3 go back to back on doing all the editing and producing. I currently live in Port Huron City located in Michigan. But I grew up in Westland City which is also located in Michigan. On the side of recording rap songs, I do freestyles which can be found on my Youtube channel "Tunez" and my Instagram "Kcs2027." My songs and my groups songs can be found on Soundcloud under the profile of "Tunez "The Lyrical Artist" and my Youtube channel. Also, we have our own independant record label we created called "The Stoned Face Poets Production."

How would you describe your style and genre?

I'd describe my style of rapping in an imagery sense. I like to paint pictures with the words I speak. I know if I have done a good job with my art work when people can vision what I am saying to them as they're listening. If people can't do that then they are not those type of people or I didn't do a good job. To better describe my style, it's like spoken word poetry or a poem that I'm reciting in a rhythmatic way with a beat behind it.

Who are your biggest idols ever? Dead or alive, musician or non-musician.

I wouldnt say idols more like inspirations and influences. But either way they are Eminem, R.A. The Rugged Man, King Gordy, Bizarre from D12, ICP, Esham, Necro, Ill Bill, Biz Markie, Kool G Rap, Tyler The creator, Hopsin, Celph Titled, Big Proof from D12, Odd Future, Korn, Slayer, Prozak, Tech N9ne, Twiztid, and Twisted Insane.

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 when starting out making music was that I'd really get nervous and I'd over think everything while recording. Also, I kind of threw my songs in peoples faces and made it out to be something greater than it really was. The nunber one tip I have for newcomer musicians is that it's ok be nervous and over think everything, just don't let it affect the way you compose. Especially if you're an independant artist with your own equipment. Changes can be made and if you have your own recording equipment then you have unlimited studio time that will be free 24/7 because it's your own stuff. So take your time and remember the soul reason that you're making music. Another thing real quick is, do not shove your music in peoples faces. No matter how badly you want them to listen to it don't do it. That will really make them not want to listen.

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

At the moment, I havn't had any gigs but I've been trying to get some. The only problem is money. People want you to pay them a hell of alot of money just to do a show or even a little part of a show. They ask for more than what I'm offering. Right now I am a broke ass artist but hopefully that changes soon. The only "gig" type of gigs I'd say that I do is a freestyle for small groups of people. And the only advice I can give right now is that don't be overly nervous. Just do what you love to do best and not give a single care what people think. As long as it makes you happy. Thats what really matters when doing music.

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

My biggest challenge right now would be money. Music is an investment for the most part. If you don't got much money then there is only so far you can go with it. I'm hoping very soon I can overcome it and really expand my variety of listeners. But first, I gotta get the money to do so.

How do you promote yourself? Do you have any specific promotion tips for other musicians?

I promote my artwork on soundcloud, youtube, instagram, and facebook. The tips I have for other artists is, do not oversell yourself. If anything, keep it on a non-chalant aspect of things. If you have a "whatever" attitude when promoting your music then people or more likely to listen to it and if they don't like it then fine no disappointment there. But if they do like it then that's a bonus. If you make yourself out to be better than what you actually are people are gonna be listening to see if that's the truth. If your not all what it is bought out to be then people will criticise you hard and some might actually be very disappointed. Thats one of the main mistakes alot of artists make.

We meet again in one year. What has happened?

Hopefully a more expension and success on me and my groups music.
