  1. What made you want to become a musician?

Was sick of big bro gettin’ all the attention at the family reunion. Bruh was the school mascot. Lead at school events allat. I’m the Michael of the fam. I was four years thinkin’ like this. I wanted to be better than him. Ma would leave. Grab the pen and paper nigga & crank up the karaoke machine. Get this battle goin’. Lol ’04 ’05 type shit. No cap. Niggas knew what time it was.

  1. Describe your favorite and least favorite part about being a musician.

Answering these shitty ass questions lol. My least favorite part is analyzing who’s trying to do good business/ building relationships / and not TRY to run off with artists’ budgets. Who the gatekeeper type shit. Who ass to kiss. We don’t kiss ass tho, so it’s a longer process. My favorite part is waking up @ 6am and recording with my blanket still on me. My girl still sleep. Serenity. Solace. 3 track ad-libs type morning.

  1. Describe your creative process when you wrote for this new project.

Came home from prison high as hell on that bullshit. Wanted to get back on that college shit but be for real this time. No cap, no exaggeration. Bruh everything was so genuine on $1,750. After not smoking for 18 months, I was zooooted on the track. I couldn’t even get certain words out. Go back and listen. But I told Avo keep that shit. It was so natural lol.

  1. Are there any musicians who inspire you? What qualities do you admire about them?

My luh young nigga Kado be on my ass about hittin’ the studio. He 18, so he keep me on my toes bout this consistency shit. Nigga be callin’ be an old head and shit. Wtf I’m only 23 bruh. GTFOH lol. And big bro Ola Runt. I saw the beginning progression. I saw it all. Eyes wide like a luh kid. I was 19 years old, and fresh outta school. Bruh was the first nigga I was in the studio with that didn’t lie. And he didn’t write. Now Ion write.

  1. What's your process for dealing with performance anxiety?

Self-manipulation. If they came to see a performance, then just give them exactly that. They low-key nervous for the artist to interact with them. So flip it on they ass. If they see you scared, they on yo ass. If they see you fuckin’ wit yaself, even if it’s a dead crowd, they gone know. They ain’t gone show, but they witcha. I seen it. They told me.

  1. If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Kill all Atlanta dj’s & promoters. Them niggas in debt. Fake ass gatekeepin’. Hollywood & New York keep lettin’ all the lames in. They not havin’ no money for real. I seen it. YG & Tyga being women now. I’m Pimp C sayin’ change all this shit lol.

  1. What kind of musician would you classify yourself as?

I’m just tryna let n*ggas know it’s okay to have fun in the trap. Keep it in ya lap for sure, but laugh nigga. Them plays still comin’. God blessin’ ya trap. Play some Taxin and juh chill. You playin’ that bullshit all day and murdering ya plays, trickin’ yaself out the street. Trippin’. I’m just genuine bruh, and I don’t portray something or talk about anything I’m not doing. Atlanta fed agents in the city RIGHT NOW. We can’t go out like that big bro.

  1. What's the best piece of advice another musician ever gave you?

Don’t rap, remember.

  1. Would you agree that learning, studying, and understanding old music flows is significant?

It’s not even a necessity anymore like it used to. I say use ya influences in ya music and do ya own stand out thing, but then you got niggas sayin’ that’s dick riding. I make so much music, I use shit from 2019 2018 and incorporate it with my new shit. All my influences burnt. Plus I found out the truth, so I don’t even look up to em anymore, let alone their old flows. But then you got rappers sounding exactly like Billboard niggas and nobody is getting on they ass. Wtf. But shoutout these young niggas 13, 14, 15 underground on the internet doin’ they own shit. Got they own swag, sound, and audience. Learn, study and understand the internet before you study another nigga. 2022 advice type beat. 

  1. What's next for Ross Taxin?

20 singles / 20 videos. Everything Goin’. Free 9lokknine. Big tribute otw. Free Ola. I got an agency & a beautiful PR “tworkin’” tings for me right now. Spinrilla, Genius, Big performances on podcast and platforms that you’re very familiar with. Otw. Not to say to much. Pop Out Gang.
