Robbie: What’s up how are you today?
Bknott: Today is treating me well, I’m headed to meet with a videographer at the moment to discuss future work. I’m in the works of planning visuals for my next project.
Robbie: Starting from the beginning, What or whom inspired you to begin doing music?
Bknott: Starting from the beginning, 07 Lil Wayne inspired me to begin creating music. His hustle and work ethic was impeccable and it was what got me started in my career.
Robbie: Now as an growing artists what we’re the things that made you want to start investing in yourself as an artist? What was it like for you making the move from Alabama to Brooklyn?
Bknott: I started investing in myself as an artist because I believed in myself more than any company or corporation could ever. I believe in my message and the words I speak on the mic. Once I started seeing how my words affected people in real life, I started investing more money into myself. The move to Brooklyn from Alabama felt right and was an easy transition. I had been familiar with Brooklyn because my fiance lived there and I would come up to visit her over the years. Brooklyn has been dope, there are alot of dope artist up here and it’s easy to network and connect with people.
Robbie:How did the concept for the joined visual project Spiltscreen project come together with Jasen & how long did you have this project in the works for?
Bknott: Splitscreen was actually recorded last October and November of 2018. Jasen came up to Brooklyn last year for a month and we cooked up and created a whole album. The album naturally came together as time went on. We filmed “Bird’s Eye View “and “Crunchyroll and Chill” on his first visit and when he came back to visit in April of 2019 we filmed the other 8 videos. We decided to the call each video an episode due to the fact that each video was a different theme and we were dropping episodes every week.
Robbie: So which song from The Spiltscreen project would you say is your favorite and which video would you say you had the most fun doing?
Bknott: Track 6 is my favorite song on splitscreen. I love the Funk influence on that record. That video was alot of fun to create. But I’d say I had the most fun with “Bird’s Eye View”. I made a bet with my manager that we could film and edit that video in an hour. Obviously I won the bet
Robbie: What can we look for from you in upcoming future?
Bknott: I am releasing a short film with Livelikedavis titled Sensei and I have a single with Lil B as well. I don’t know which one we will be releasing first but you can expect one of them in the next month or so.
