Who are your biggest influences?
My biggest influence is 2Pac because I grew up listening to him and loved the purity and originality of his tracks. I also loved how he was a rebel that set his own trends in life.
I remember the first time one of my friends introduced me to Bugzy years back and I thought damn… this guy can really spit bars and if he can do it then what’s stopping me? My sound resonates from all these artists combined like a chemistry equation hence the name K3MIST
Cadet, a UK artist who sadly passed away, loved how each of his tracks of his had some kind of story to tell, very engaging, and they were genuine based on the truth.
People forget that influencers can be those close to you and my mom, is easily, my biggest influence. She’s supportive in every aspect of my life, always wishing the best for me and raised me to be who I am today. I do music to be a success and to be able to provide the best for my mom.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I see myself doing world tours, selling out massive venues on a regular and embracing my career as an artist. I started doing music so I could generate a full time career from it and do what I love doing which is making great music. I want to take my friends and family on an unforgettable adventure, want the world to know the name K3MIST and it starts now!
