YARDHYPE recently had a question and answer session with the upcoming Reggae musician “Rastabwoykell” who hails from Chicago, Get to learn who he is, read as he introduces himself to the reggae community below.
I have been doing music since 2013 or 2014 but I didn’t start taking it seriously until 2017 when the Chicago police department stole my camera and all i had left was my studio and the internet so i taught myself how to be an independent artist.
I would say my style is trap Reggae but Revelation 19 is more reggae with a couple dancehall style songs
My favorite verse that I wrote is on this song called heed the teachings on my Trapstafari mixtape because it helped me find myself again when i was lost.
I dont have a favorite dancehall artist but i like Koffee.
I wouldn’t say I have a favorite reggae artist but I like Bob Marley and The Wailers.
Bob Marley has been the most influential reggae artist to me in my music career, he helped me understand how to create my own brand of reggae and led me to Haile Selassie I.
I just dropped an album called Revelation 19. It tells the story of the Angel sent by God to keep us in the way. On my search for truth I realized that i was the man in Revelation 19 who fell at the feet of this angel and so I’m sharing this truth with the world so that they may know.
I smoke alot of herb hahaha i guess you could say that keeps me grounded and listen to my music or some roots reggae music. No artist in particular but i like dat typa music ya kno? Sometimes i even play my djembe.
I love the Rastafari movement and Reggae Music most from Jamaica.
My music team consists of myself and GMM Lil Mari as Artists on our independent record label called Get Money Mob. But when it comes to majority of my music, i produce the beat, engineer, and mix the songs myself.
3 years from now I see myself accomplishing my goals. Making my artist (s) successful in Rap and establishing myself in Reggae.
Sometimes i write my lyrics and sometimes I record myself on a voice memo and construct a song from that. All depends on how i can capture my inspiration when i’m inspired at that moment.
I like how current state of reggae has evolved. I don’t really have too much to say about it. Id like to see more of the Rasta artists more active on social media tho hahaha.
