Interview with (@christiancashx)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Growing up in the inner city of Los Angeles, you are bound to soak up some culture involving the arts. My case was no different, yet extremely unique on its own. My father worked security for Motown in his early years, eventually retiring as a medical assistant. My mother, a hardworking registered nurse in love with music, found their common love. I’ve been hearing music from every genre and eventually drifted to Hip-hop. A newer genre that offer combines other genres and mixes them. So it seemed this was built for me. Like my culture, like MY BLOOD. I have over 16 different counties in my bloodline (Nigeria, Ireland, Native Alaskan Native). Very mixed like my interests, I played high school football in my early days and was into punk rock and skateboarding on the side. I try to weave my cultures into one and create their own “vibe,” so to speak. I am also into anime and Japanese culture, even though it’s not necessarily in my blood. I was also a drama kid in high school, so I loved the theatrics.
Can you share the most interest in what exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
Meeting artists like DMC (of Run DMC), the ying-yang twins, and others in the industry, you get advice from artists who have “been there,” so to speak. You try to soak it all in, and those moments stick out the most. Whether backstage at the house of blues or on stage at the Highland, I can’t just give one example.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Keep an open mind, don’t get frustrated, and stay persistent.
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a person you are grateful for who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My support has been from family and friends. My mother has always encouraged me to do and be better. Along with friends in the industry to help me along the way, like having friends that double as audio engineers and producers.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I try to bring joy and positive vibes wherever I grace the stage. I think my music and other content are very relatable and shareable.
Do you have a favorite rite, “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Life is too short.” Just a motto I think applies to us all. Enjoy your days; we are not promised tomorrow.
