We had the good fortune of connecting with Kid Cut and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kid Cut, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
Music has always been in my blood. I was named after the great jazz musician, Miles Davis and my father was a DJ (Kid Cut) in his early days so I’ve always been influenced by music from an early age. The beauty behind creating music is why I’m pursing this career. I love being able to create a song from an idea that I had in my head or sudden inspiration. The feeling of my music affecting other people keeps me pursing my dreams of being a global artist.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I started producing beats when I was in the 8th grade and went on to start writing raps my freshman year going King College Prep in Chicago, IL. Ever since then I’ve been recording and engineering myself and constantly learning how to be a better artist. Being an artist isn’t easy for me because I’m very critical of my music and how others will perceive it. I learned that only the artists who are consistent and confident in themselves make it. So constantly reminding myself to be better than the artist/producer/man I was yesterday is the constant challenge but fun of the journey. I want the world to know I am a self made artist who can go into an empty room with just a laptop and a microphone and come out with an album where they’ll love at least one song on it. I’m not perfect but that’s the beauty of it. I’ve been releasing music since 2010 and I’ll only get better as I go.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
It depends on the type of friend; if my friend is visiting Chicago and wants to chill we’d slide to Harold’s or Baccis Pizza and then either go to a bar/club downtown. In my view though the most exciting place to go is the studio; either Music Garage or Classicks studio.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to shoutout my family, friends and fans because they keep me grounded and expect nothing but the best from me. Everyone who enjoys my music goes on this journey with me as I grow into the biggest artist God allows me to be.
