BRiGGz Tells Us About His Musical Talents

BRiGGz, 25, born in Providence, RI on August 15th,1996 has been making music since 11 years old. Inspired by his mothers ability to continuously hit high notes, and his cousins musical talents, he soon found his own interest in being an artist. Coming from two families that both possessed the talent and passion for music, it's no surprise that his music captures the minds and hearts of his listeners.

Where did you grow up and what was it like growing up there?

I grew up in the smallest state in the country. Rhode island. born in the capital, Providence, i've seen a lot, done a lot and heard a lot. I love my State, its a beautiful place to come settle down after you've acquired your wealth. On the other hand, this isn't the place you come to seek opportunity. Envy, jealousy and hate pollute out air almost everywhere you go. So, growing up here was always fun, but also a struggle at the same time, even at the age of 24.

How did you get into your music career?

When I was about 12 years old in the 8th grade we were given this history project. We could either write a paper about it, or we could make a song about it. It's obvious what I chose. Thing about it was i was never expecting to enjoy it as much as i did and of course i had written music before, but this had been my first time in a real studio. Luckily my mom has a lot of friends and called up one of her long time friends that owned a studio. From that day on i knew i wanted to make music. My cousin, saw my passion when he first heard me rap and from there pushed me to become what i am now.

Do you have any new music coming out soon, and can we expect some visuals?

I'm someone who does almost everything on their own from engineering my own music sessions to chopping and editing my music videos. So when i say i have so much music waiting to drop, that's exactly what i mean. I have a few mixtapes in progress with a few visuals to compliment those projects.

Who are your musical influences, and who would you love to go on tour with?

Cassidy from Larceny and Family used to be my inspiration as a kid when i first started out. HIs bars were impeccable and was and is the reason for why i strive to perfect my punches and schemes. But over the years my confidence shot through the roof and i became my own inspiration. If i had the chance to go on tour with anybody it would most likely be Drake for the simple fact his energies crazy on stage and lets be honest. That's the Hit Man.

What is your favorite positive quote that keeps you motivated?

Perfection is Perception

What is your creative process like when making music?

My creative process is determined by my mood. Sometimes i can be sitting there and something fire would pop in my head. I'd scramble to write it down and repeat until i damn near have a chorus set up. From there i either find a beat i can profit off of that matches the wave of the lyrics or ill have someone create one for me. The there are other times where the process is reversed where ill find an instrumental/have one made , write to it , and because i do everything on my own, id hop in the booth and lay it down until it feels perfect.

What do you like to do outside of music?

Other than sports and getting my exercise, i am a very hospitable person. Helping people is something that makes me feel as good as a fire hit record does. That help can range from something minor to something major. If i can, i most likely will.

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

Well, I'm very versatile. So i really wouldn't sum my music up with a description. One day i can be a song depicting how in love someone is. Next song can be a brief or deep description of how you can hate someone so much. But every song i do make are songs many can relate to.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be and why?

If i could change anything about the industry it would be the type of music they push out on a massive scale. I remember being young and all you hear on the radio is love. There wasn't too much of what's known now as drill music or music about sex and selling yourself. Nowadays you have little girls singing "WAP" dancing as if they were in the club and while you can partially blame parents to an extent, its also the music. People fail to realize how much of an impact your or someone else's music can have on someone.

Did you ever consider giving up? Where did you get the motivation to continue through your challenges? What sustains your drive?

I've thought of giving up more times than I'd like to remember. But I never had. I feel like part of the reason i was able to get through all those times was because my cousin was watching over me, breathing life into me. The person who got me started making music passed on me a few years back and all I could think was damn, I cant do this anymore. But something inside made me turn all the way up and I feel like it opened my mind to different frequencies of energy that made me feel emotions I've never felt before. It definitely changed the kind of person I was and the type of music I was making. Now, I feel like I'm so far but I'm so close and if I just buckle down and hustle and grind a little harder, ill get to where I want to be.

What's next for you, and how can our readers further follow your work?

Well I've been working on expanding my brand and copyrighting my label (S.M.D/StackMajorDigitz) and been working with a few other local artists out of Rhode Island. The most important thing in any business, game or hustle is trust and team work. And that, is just my problem. I do everything on my own so it slows me down a lot. But I'm working on putting together a team of individuals who are going to contribute when its needed where its needed.
