If you haven’t heard Crazie K!D AnonYmouS’ music, then you are surely missing out. The Philly emcee is immaculate with his rhymes, creative with his sound and brand, and is definitely critical when it comes to the substance in his music. We have been following Crazie K!D AnonYmouS after hearing his interview on the iNoslen Radio Show and was impressed with his backstory and the way music influences him. This artist is a master of storytelling and respects the craft of hip hop. This is why we had to set up an interview with him.
Fresh off the release of his latest single, “Master Cee 11th Letter 3,” the #StayRAW king talked to PurpleBars about his new release, crafting his sound, his highlights of 2016, and what’s next for him. Check out the interview below.
Tell us about yourself and your music.
Peace! I’m Crazie K!D AnonYmouS. I’m God. A dope individual that deals with anxiety, depression, and PTSD from Prison and Iraq. I create worlds with my words and dance with souls with my delivery. I’m a poet who loves hard. I’m a story teller and creator of all things funky and fresh. I am that I am and my music expresses that.
How would you describe your sound?
Sound is a sexy muthaPHUCKa yo. Don’t get my lovely Sound chopped though. It can get rugged and raw real quick and stomp you out. She is a teacher as well. My baby, sound will teach you a thing or two.
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
I’ve written my latest single, “Master Cee 11th Letter 3” while at the laundry mat doing clothes. The homie Q Will Thee Elite sent me the bomb sounds and I had to wreck shop! I couldn’t WAIT to record it! The production just spoke to me. I had to have my first single for my FIRST LP to have high energy and release a lot of thoughts that I was having at the time.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
Right now I’m working on completing my album, Stay Ready And Willing LP. Waiting on some production, finishing up songs and most importantly putting together to marking for this project. My manager and I are working hard on getting this project out to the world. More shows and videos are coming. The more flavor released to the world the more you’ll hear about me. Video for my new single, “Master Cee 11th Letter 3” will be out in the coming weeks.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
Making money from music. It isn’t consistent like I need it to be, but it’s a start. I’ve noticed on this road, that a LOT of artist aren’t making any money. ESPECIALLY rappers. And that’s crazy to me because there is a lot of gifted people out here that don’t know how to monetize their skills. So they end up on soundcloud and eventually quitting because they can’t afford it. Being able to say you opened up for a major artist or legend in the game isn’t paying the gas bill. So for me to be able to say, music is another stream of income is a big highlight for me. Now buy my song on iTunes so I can continue to make my dreams come true.
Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s).
Mainstream: Black Thought and Jill Scott. Independent: Vinnie Paz and Jean Grey
Name something random that people do not know about you.
I’m a cat person.
What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
People will smile in your face and don’t like shit you do. Everybody wants the artist to give up the cash and do all the work but won’t break bread with you. Stay guarded and ready to punch a muthaphucka in the damn mouth. Indie music industry is a dark and lonely place. The genuine hearted folks in this industry, hold them close and dear. Let them know you love them often. AND ALWAYS build the fan base. Fans get all your attention. Never other workers in this industry.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Beautiful music. Sometimes it will be raw and in your face. Sometimes it will hug you. Either way it’ll be beautiful and everlasting.
