* CAPITOL E * Brooklyn ARTIST Shares His New Amazing Hiphop Music and Musical Influences!
"I remember my very first live performance, at a spot in Brooklyn called C Pack - we were a group called V.O.C. (Voice of the City) I was in Jr. in High School. I was not so much nervous, as much as excited. It was over before I knew it." - CAPITOL E
"Before we begin, I would like to thank everyone who supported me since day one. There, ok. I had to say it... So I am about to be released from the U.S. Navy, very soon, and I thought to myself that since I have been doing my music for so long, I may as well now take it all the way. Why not? I am very comfortable working in the studio laying down tracks, yet I always know that a time will come when I will step up on stage and present my music again to the World. When I am on stage it's a great feeling I can't quite describe. I am sure that anyone, who performs often, can relate."
"As far as I can see right now it's Atlanta GA, which seems to be the next best city for me; it's a great city for all music industry related matters but it's also a city that very much likes to avoid the snow. I really don't like the cold, very much."
"When in Studio, I like those producers who are very positive minded and hard working and those who focus on the task at hand, are creative, versatile, and never lazy. I don't ask for much beyond that (by the way, this is a shout out to each great producer reading this, I hope we work together soon - Peace)."
"Gotta know... I've been doing this since I was 12 years old, writing and composing both in my mind and on paper. At 17, I first stepped in a studio to finally record, it was easy because I have always been a big fan of rap which is not too big these days. Hiphop changes the energy mind state, and helps one get away from useless distractions and current frustrations. Why I think it's so important is because if it can do that for me, it can do the same for anyone else in the World. Best advice I ever took and always give is: 'Don't hold back' - don't stop yourself from putting out something great. Look at 2Pac and Biggie, while they were here with us, they gave us everything. Today Eminem, KRS1, Masta Ace, do much the same, still but in their own original incredible print. I have been inspired by them in almost every way. They showed me a world of words and wonders at a time when my life was confused and troubled; they never held back, and therefore nor do I. Since then, I have developed my own Hiphop style which, if I must describe, is Highly Lyrical/Energetic, Poetic/Visionary. I try to bring Art into Hiphop much the way it was done at one great time, which still everyone agrees on. How I would still like to get it to be, like back in the day, knowing it was a different World entirely, oh Yeah!"
"The first live Concert I attended was 'Maxwell' with my girlfriend, on Valentines Day 2014, he was above and beyond great. It doesn't get smoother or more romantic than than Maxwell for Valentines Day! - It can't get closer to perfection than him. Just like Maxwell, himself, I could never be a sell out - and - I too believe that people who are meant to hear my music are meant to hear it, those who aren't meant to... will still hear it, just soon enough. I doubt I can ever abandon music, it's a central part of my life. Music is very inspirational, in all forms."
"By the way I have to also dedicate this moment to the very special lady of my life. My Mother who raised me, single-handedly, and provided me with a safe platform to learn from and practice off of. She made me see value in all of my gifts and made me match them up to my dreams. She taught me to follow through with it, if it matters. Here's to you, my dear Mother, I love you always. Secondly, to a special person in my life Ms. Jacqueline Cossier for seeing me through many a rough times. Everything in my heart can't seem to fully express how, but now everything I do, I do better because of you."
