We were able to obtain a hot new interview with Female Hip Hop artist “Venomiss” She is really sparking up some hot fire music ! Check out our interview with the superstar below, it is quite interestinf
Q: First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
Venomiss Response: I got started in local battles and talent shows in New Jersey. I’ve been rapping since I was around 12 years old but by the time I was 17 I decided to take it serious. I knew it was something I was passionate about. I did a lot of shows and battles and songs locally but I was young and inexperienced in business, so I took some time away from the forefront after finding some success online to better understand the business side. Once I had a better handle on it, I attacked the music world head-on full steam ahead and I haven’t stopped or slowed down yet. Now, 3 years back in and I have had a’lot of success, my first single dropped and has done nearly a million streams on Spotify to date. As a independent artist with no major push, this was a great achievement and pushed me to drop my first studio album “Heiress of The Echelon” which went on to win two independent album of the year awards and get me nominated for 21 awards nationally. It’s just been a climb from there!
Q: What advice would you give to beginners who are nervous?
Venomiss Response: Don’t compare yourself to others. Be true to yourself and work on perfecting what you have. If you stay true to yourself, you will find that eventually what you create will be so authentic it will be undeniable. You will attract fans and people who believe in your authentic nature. Fitting in is overrated.
Q:When you decide it’s time to make a new record, is that more exciting or stressful?
Venomiss Response: Making a new record is so exciting and its on of my favorite parts of being an artist. Trying new things, making a vision come together is an amazing feelings.
Sitting back and listening to it for the first time, sometimes I get goosebumps when I know something I thought up came to life. It can be stressful though, if you’re trying something new and can’t quite get it right the first try. I can be a perfectionist so I tend to want to take my time and make sure its exactly how I want it.
Q: How easily do songs tend to come to you?
Venomiss Response: Usually I can write a verse in a 15 to 20 minutes if i’m really into a track. I can come up with the concepts and ideas for the song pretty fast. Lately, I have been more into taking my time and manifesting more timeless music. Not every song is meant to be constructed in 20 minutes. Sometimes you have to allow the vibe to grow.
Q: What’s your motto or the advice you live by?
Venomiss Response: My friends and family always tease me because I say “It is what it is” all the time! I say it without even noticing that I say it. It can be a good slogan to live by. What is meant to be will be. The universe will make room for what is meant for you so don’t sweat the things that are out of your control.
Q: What is you favorite song to belt out at the bar/in the car right now?
Venomiss Response: I am not a singer but I listen to alot of R&B. I have a good ear for music in general so I listen to many different artists. Right now, on repeat in my car are H.E.R- Focus, Jhene Aiko- Scentiva, Bryson Tiller- Right My Wrongs and Kendrick Lamar- Money Trees. Something about those records have kept them on repeat for about a month. In another month, I will move on to another vibe but right now that’s what i’m riding with.
Q :What are your future goals as a music artist?
Venomiss Response: My future goals are to keep climbing. I model, I host radio, visual and performance shows, I have acted, You name it! I have tried my hands in it. I had my first acting role in an indie film “Hello My Name is Joe” by E-D Productions. I have launched a career as a curve model by challenging myself to be different. I have co-hosted radio shows as well as hosted events. I just finished writing my first fiction novel I will be releasing in 2019. I have a television show I am executive producing and working on bringing to life. I have two businesses opening in 2019. You name it! I do it. I am an artist who enjoys branching my creativity into many areas. I feel the only idea that’s a failure is the one I don’t explore.
Q: What was your most memorable performance to date?
Venomiss Response: I LOVE to perform. Performing is my favorite part of music. The feel of the crowd, the energy in the room….I put on a good show whether there is 3 people in the room or 3,000. My largest show was a crowd of 10,000. I have been fortunate to have a lot of great shows, I’ve opened for Nappy Roots, Krs-One, Mario, Rich Homie Quan, Lil Mo, and a few others. My two most memorable shows are opening for KRS-One because it was the first time I had done such a large scale show. It was a chance encounter which led to his team hearing my music that made it possible and them taking a chance to put me on the shows will forever mean the world to me. Walking out onto that stage from backstage and realizing there were 5,000 people in the room was surreal. The crowd’s reception was great. Another favorite was definitely the Nappy Roots show. It was a really amazing show because the crowd was so very receptive of me as an artist and my music and very interactive with me. They sang along, they danced with me, they took selfies with me. Great memories.
