Self Savior $$ Interview
“You ain’t know that I did this one” but you are about to know! Self Savior $$ is a self-proclaimed savior who is coming after the hip hop game with a vengeance. Low key chill vibes with hard rhymes give Self Savior $$ his punchy flow and cadence. Honestly, I really like how Self Savior $$ approaches the beat and how his vocals are mixed. He keeps it chill, but you can tell Self Savior $$ is a hard-hitting dude!
New York is where Self Savior $$ is from and he is a New Yorker through and through. Hip Hop is a saving grace for Self Savior $$ and he has been perfecting his craft to the point of relentless execution. We are very excited to see what Self Savior $$ has to offer next and we are excited for the “No Interviews” chapter of his career that is about to hit the streets VERY SOON!
Also, get ready for his latest jam called “No Interviews”!
Where are you from?
Queens & Long Island, New York.
How has your city influenced your sound?
Living in New York has made music my first language. All of my sauce comes from New York.
What instruments do you play?
I don’t currently play these instruments (except for a few) as I have been focusing on my vocal instrument via dancehall/hip-hop, but I did play the flute, the piano, the clarinet, the saxophone, and a couple of cultural instruments like the harmonium (accordion-like), mridanga (drumlike), and kartals (cymbal-ish).
What’s your best performance?
My best performance was at a lounge in Queens hosted by the late Hollywood Play who was our mentor and showcase host. The place in daytime hours is a restaurant with about 200 people in attendance. They were all culturally similar to my own and received the music really well.
What is your worst performance?
Thankfully the Lord has arranged that I have not been embarrassed much but I would say my first performance was my worst as I was not comfortable with the setting and had never had any experience in a stage set before.
Tell us about your newest single.
My latest single is called No Interviews. This record describes the current state of hip hop culture where bloggers are gravitating to artists with a “larger buzz” aka “more likely to die” / “numbers rule” type of mentality. This song is a message that I am not allured by “large buzzes” or people on their way out with a large following. My single prior to this one was called Walk Thru in which I paid homage to Drakeo The Ruler. The day after the release of my latest single No Interviews, I will release “Beat Yo Ass,” which is a male remix to Summer Walker’s “Be Your Ex.”
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself in New York still but a great deal wealthier.
Does your family support your musical journey?
Yes! My wife is my greatest support as are many of my close family and friends. I never was extremely good at sports, just a decent athlete. However, I always excelled in music and my family always encouraged that.
Who do you want to collaborate with?
Supercat, Shyne, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Busta Rhymes, Rakim, Drake, Nas, Jay-Z, KRS-One, etc.
Any new projects you are working on that you want to share?
My project entitled “108” is being released on 2/3/23. The previous tape entitled “Nuh Fren Dem; David Duvalier” had 9 records. 108 will have 12 tracks.
