1. What is the name of the song you have featured on ‘That Summer, Volume 2’? How does your song remind you of summer or how does it fit into a summer album?
The name of my song featured on ’That Summer, Volume 2’ is “Locations”. "Locations" reminds me of summer because that’s usually when most people travel and change locations. Also, it fits into a summer album because the song is fun. In the summer everybody is having fun and having a good time. The vibe of “Locations” is the perfect vibe for every season, especially summer.
2. What is the inspiration behind your song? Or what is your song about?
"Locations" is about everything that you go through in a summer from the highs to the lows. "Locations" discusses getting fly and also how you have to get by in the summer. With the up tempo, free flow type of beat that gives the song the perfect touch.
3. How did you write your featured song? Or can you describe your songwriting process?
I wrote “Locations” starting off with the beat. After I heard the beat, I started writing the hook. I start off by writing the hook then doing the verse. With this song, after I got done writing the hook I called Nico DC to see if he wanted to do the song. Of course he agreed, so after I wrote my verse, and he was done his, we tested the song out on our phones. After that we went to go record it.
4. Of every song you have ever written, what is your favorite and why?
My favorite song that I have written is “Gucci Prada Fendi”. "Gucci Prada Fendi" is my favorite song because everything flowed so naturally. From acquiring the beat, to the time I recorded it. Everything felt like it was destined from the start. The lyrics came out so easily that I finished writing it in 15 minutes with full confidence that it was a hit song.
5. Who or what has inspired you most in your music career?
The person who inspired me the most in my music career is 50 cent. The reason he inspired me the most is because of how he rose to the top. Coming from literally the bottom. He fought his way to the top, never gave up, and achieved his dreams.
6. Tell us where you live and what the music scene is like there?
I live in Pottstown, PA. It’s a small city, but the music scene is everything but ordinary. The music scene varies from Hip Hop, R&B, Rock, Country and also techno. For the most part it’s a lot of Hip Hop.
7. Do you have any advice for new independent artists who are just starting out?
Advice that I would give new independent artists just starting out would be to promote yourself as much as you can. Invest into your craft and never give up.
8. What are your plans for the summer? Doing anything fun and exciting?
My plans for the summer are to make the best music I can and to really get to the next level. My team and I are taking a trip to Miami and also California during the summer so things should get very excited. Updates on those trips will be on my Instagram and YouTube at FSG Rell.
9. What’s coming up in the future
I will be releasing a lot of videos in the future. Giving everybody that supports me a deeper look into who I am so they feel more connected. Also I will be releasing a bunch of singles off my new album.
