Interview With Legacy: Rap, Poetry, New Music & More
Get to know Legacy, a skillful rapper who dominates the art of poetry like none other. Hailing from Arizona, his songs are gaining a lot of traction with almost 15K streams on SoundCloud. If you are looking for fresh Hip-Hop talents, then scroll down to read this interesting interview.

1 — Can you recall the moment when you thought you could be a rapper?

Honestly, I don’t think I really decided lol. I was writing some poems one day and started learning how to time the syllables to the instrumentals I would find on YouTube and it became something I couldn’t stop doing.

2 — How do you think your hometown has influenced the kind of music that you make?

My hometown influences everything I do, it’s why I’m anxious, depressed, and happy all at the same time. Every day can be good or bad, someone can give me a dirty look one day or trash talk me and I remember the instance and add it to the stories.

3 — What’s so special to you about poetry that you seem to love so genuinely?

Poetry requires you to face the darkest emotions. It makes you think about and actively reflect on everything you do and say. So when I’ve had a bad day, instead of bottling it entirely, I can vent through a verse – which in turn people hear and support my efforts to make it through my everyday life.

Emerging Rapper Legacy Showcases A Poetic Flow On "Bad Feelings"
4 — Where did you take the inspiration to write most of your lyrics?

The inspiration lives in the lifestyle, the good experiences, and the bad.

5 — Do you think a good rapping performance comes from a good rapping technique? If so, what’s yours?

In my opinion, if the fans/listeners are connected to what you’re saying emotionally, and mentally, your performance has achieved its goal. People like having people they can relate to, all I’m doing is bringing those emotions into a poem and instrumental.

6 — Please tell us more about your song “Bad Feelings”. What’s the message behind it?

“Bad Feelings” is actually quite old and I’m just now really pushing for the exposure while my page is still young. However, the message never dies. What I really want people to take away from this song is that no matter what happens, no matter how hard it gets, just keep doing your thing. Time will make it better. Set goals. Keep dreaming. The longer you wait the harder it gets.

7 — As an artist, how do you deal with criticism?

Criticism is everywhere. You can walk a certain way and be judged for it. Listen to the bad things, only sometimes, when they help you improve. And hold the good things close and carry them with you. The good comments and feedback are almost a shield to the bad. They help you realize that one bad comment is one of many other really good ones. So all you can do is keep moving.

8 — Are you afraid to experiment with different music styles?

Yes, and no. It depends on the meaning of “style.” Like, I hate my singing voice but I’m not afraid to try out other flows and techniques.

9 — What are your current projects?

The “Mindset EP.” I’m dropping two more tracks as of right now to finalize the project. “Motion” and another untitled track that I’m working on in collaboration with my newest partner “Yung Cubb”.

10 — Finally, if you weren’t an artist today, what else could you see yourself doing?

Being a pro-CoD player. ?
