PM on his debut album "Broken"

PM is a diverse rapper, singer, and songwriter that works extensively to produce music for lovers of all genres..  He has consistently shown that not only is he passionate about what he does, but it also comes naturally to him. He has been interested in creating music for over a decade which educated him on all different styles of hip hop and  r&b that shows in his music. PM is extremely dedicated to what he does and his main purpose is to reach straight through his music and touch the hearts of millions. PM is the voice of the weak, the damaged, and of course the "Broken". Join him on this emotional journey of vulnerability and learning to face your demons. 

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

I grew up in Warwick, Rhode Island. Living here was not all that bad, however it has certainly been challenging to be taken seriously as an artist especially from where i’m from. There are constant struggles that range from doubt, negativity, and lack of opportunity through gatekeepers which have only made me more hungry to reach my goals. The culture here is very minimal as it pertains to music especially when it comes to support from the locals so it is important that I stay focused and driven if I wish to be taken seriously as well as being a part in developing an industry that does not exist yet

When did you first discover your love for music and decided that you wanted to become an artist?


I first started writing original songs at the age of 10 while in elementary school. For the next decade I would dabble in freestyles, songwriting, and audio engineering until I finally realized in 2020 that this was more than just a hobby. I realized not only did I get a massive amount of personal fulfillment, but that I was also able to touch the hearts of many. When people hear my music they are often able to relate it to their own personal issues and that can be extremely relieving for them [coming from my circle and people I met through posting my music online]. When I realized I had the power to change lives, there was no turning back.

When is your album dropping and what can we expect to hear from it tell us the vibe

My debut album "Broken" will be live on all streaming platforms on July 16th, 2021! You can expect to hear a lot of raw emotion from me on this album. The vibe can be easily labelled as a heartbreak album. The purpose of this is to face the issues you are dealing with head on and be comfortable with the outcome of healing. In this emotional journey we will tackle cheating, heartbreak, self destruction, substance abuse, and much, much more. Shedding light on the issues of the masses will give us the power to work together to make this so much more than just an album. This will be an experience to remember.

What is going to be the first single off of your project, and when will we get to see a video for it?

I would expect the first single off of this album to be Addictions. I think based on fan reception of the track and the clear potential for a high budget video to come out incredibly makes that a no brainer. One way or another there are many planned videos on the way so keep an eye on my social media for more!

Will there be any local artists featured on your new album and what is your favorite track and why?

If there is anything I can get down with,  it's supporting local artists. I am proud to announce that not only does the album feature two fantastic Rhode Island artists, but I have also been working consistently on singles with local artists so look forward to those after the album! As far as the features go for "Broken" we first have Bianca. Bianca is an incredibly decorated singer who has worked with industry legends like Lupe Fiasco, Waka Flocka Flame, Peter Jackson, and many more.

You can hear Bianca feature on my song "Worst Days' - produced by myself & Atto Pilot, which will be placed seventh on the album. Second we have Raja TK who is a rapper based out of Rhode Island but originally from New York. Raja is a talented artist who you can catch on my song "Die Young'' placed third on the album. As far as my favorite track on the album, I would have to go with "The Void". The reason I chose this track is it really showcases the raw unfiltered emotions that I am trying to express by releasing this album for the fans.

Is there anyone who you would love to collaborate with and what advice would you want to get from that person?

There are many people in the rap game who have made an impact on me and how I create my own art. My biggest inspiration of all time is Juice WRLD, it absolutely breaks my heart that we had to lose such a massively talented person at such a young age. I believe the impact he left on the game will be here forever with no question. However, if we are talking collaborations I would pick my favorite musical visionary.

This man has made an incredible impact on the game from the levels of his lyricism to the perfection he implements into directing his music videos which often look more like movies. That's right, I am talking about Massachusetts own Joyner Lucas. The main reason I would love to collaborate with him is he makes music that leaves a true impact. You will often find him touching on risky or sensitive topics for the greater good of sparking the conversation. My level of respect for what he is bringing to the industry is simply unmatched. 

Your song "Can't Quit You" sounds like a song about losing someone you loved. What is your top 3 relationship advice?

"Can't Quit You" is a true heartbreak song, it tackles the struggles of moving on even when it seems impossible. The song is about knowing that you deserve better and trying to be strong enough to act on that. My top three relationship tips would be firstly, respect yourself. What I mean by this is to not settle for less EVER. Each and every one of us deserves respect and true love. Second is to keep the faith, nobody wants to be cheated on. If you feel yourself losing those feelings for your partner, it's best to move on before someone gets hurt.

Third is to have faith in your partner. It is too easy nowadays to get caught up in the baggage of previous relationships. We have to be strong enough to make sure we understand everyone is different, give your trust to your partner until they prove themselves unworthy. Even though this can be scary at times, we live and we learn and applying this will allow us to build solid relationships based on what's actually real.

What is your creative process like when making music?

My creative process is interesting for sure, I tend to work off of inspiration most of the time. My creativity can spark at any moment for any reason. I do best when working in the studio and allowing my producer to cook up a brand new vibe. Another one of my favorite ways is to think of a melody and start singing with no actual beat. This process allows me to write a-cappella and have my producer custom make the beat around my notes.

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

If I could change one thing about the industry I would definitely have to address censorship. I believe we need to ditch the cookie cutter industry plant creations that are plaguing the game today. We are being force fed a plethora of young individuals who have no respect for the music but just get given these roles by the record companies. Marcus Hopsin once said "Real artists get shelved and wack ones get famous, to leave masses brainless. A smart mind is dangerous." I think we could all benefit from reading that a second time. There is an incredible amount of undervalued talent out there that does not get a fair chance to shine because of their lyrical content. Let's all wake up and smell reality together so we can get rid of that government funded blindfold we have all been wearing.

What are some of the challenges you go through as an artist that you wish to overcome?

There are quite a few challenges I have faced but one certainly sticks out above the rest. I look around at the game and I see a massive wave of young talent such as The Kid Laroi, Lil Tjay, and Polo G to name a few. The issue with this for me is I often feel I am not doing enough. I have this constant fear that the clock is ticking for me to make it as an artist. Laroi is just 17 at the time of this article and I am 22, this caused me to compare my progress to which I am often very dissatisfied. I would recommend anyone also struggling with this issue to remember that there is always time to follow your dreams no matter what. Now get up and go get it.

How do you get over writer's block if you ever had that experience ?

Writer's block can be extremely difficult to handle. Sometimes I will have large periods of time where I feel like I cannot write music at all. This can often be related to lack of motivation or depression. To cope with this I like to find a happy calm place to relax my mind and be one with my music. 

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

After the album releases on July 16th you can all look forward to a wave of singles that have already been specially crafted for the general listeners ear. Hits are on the way such as Light it Up, Freak On, and many more! For the first time ever I would also like to publicly announce here that after my debut album "Broken" has had some time to speak to the hearts of you all, you can look forward to my follow up album "Rebuilding" that will address all the positive reinforcements of self care and prioritizing your personal happiness!  https://poplme.co/pmonthebeat?fbclid=IwAR2XnFsQwin_eb5edCS_GrOXMu_n-hNQ4I1iD2SPtkJSbdl4hT4PSVj_jW8
