The 10 Question Interview:
Interviewer: What first got you into music?
Soo Casa: I always liked music but didnt start taking it seriously until a few years ago. I realized if I didnt try it out, I would be mad at myself for it in the future.
Interviewer: Who or what inspired you to make music?
Soo Casa: So many artists have played influence to me that it would be hard to name them all, but some include Tory Lanez, Big L, ASAP Rocky, Joey Badass, A boogie, and Wu-Tang Clan. Shania Twain is dope too.
Interviewer: What is your creative process like?
Soo Casa: My creative process is always different. I dont usually sit down and plan to make a song, just sorta happens.
Interviewer: Has your musical journey had a deliberate direction?
Soo Casa: As an artist I have changed a lot so it is hard to say I had one direction. Some people find their sound right away, while others grow into it. I believe I have finally found my right sound.
Interviewer: What is your biggest musical challenge?
Soo Casa: Biggest musical challenge is trying to please everyone with your music. In reality, that will never happen because everyone has different taste, so you have to do what you enjoy.
Interviewer: What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
Soo Casa: Id definitely be a Formula 1 race car driver, or slinging hot pockets.
Interviewer: How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
Soo Casa: The internet is a huge factor in the music business obviously. It makes it easier for people to share their music and stuff, but it also has the downfall of causing it to be oversaturated. Everyone wants to be a rapper nowadays.
Interviewer: What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Soo Casa: "Dont worry about what others think of you, let them worry about what you think of them." - Wise words from my old man.
Interviewer: If you were talking to a younger version of you, what advice would you give yourself?
Soo Casa: Raptors are gunna win the 2019 NBA finals... bet on that shit.
Interviewer: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
Soo Casa: A lot of amazing artists will never blow up because they wont get the exposure or chance. The industry would be a lot better if it focused more on raw talent, rather than just clout and peoples antics.
Interviewer: What’s next for you?
Soo Casa: Next, ima eat some cheetos and record some hits.
