Catch Sam Austins next Saturday at his all ages show featuring opening talent Bevlove, Curtis Roach, & Take A Daytrip.  Now onto the latest DetroitRap.com feature series “Seven Questions” with our very first & talented guest Sam Austins.

Seven Questions with Sam Austins

Headlining your first event, how does it feel to know you’ve made it to this point—and where would you like to see the future lead?

To be in this position, it’s humbling and just a testament to hard work—but it’s still just the very beginning.

If you had to describe ‘Sam Austins’ to fans in one sentence, what would you say?

Sam Austins is for the culture.

During the creative process, is their any particular influences throughout life that you look back on to get inspired?

I’ll never forget the feeling I had going to the ‘Yeezus’ tour, or being the first to download a loose ‘Drake’ track before “Take Care” dropped. Moments like G.O.O.D Fridays, and discovering Toro Y Moi’s “Anything In Return” for the first time. Playing the video game “Rock Band”, leading as the vocals. These times are what made me who I am today so it comes out naturally without me forcefully tapping in.

Being a young up & comer on the scene, is there anything that worries you about the road ahead?

I wouldn’t say anything worries me but I’m more-so anxious. I’m ready for whatever this path has to offer me and I’m willing to kick down all the doors that they have in front of me, if necessary.

How was teaming up with Take A Daytrip & ‘FIJI’ water—and do you have a lifetime supply of FIJI now?

Clicking up with Daytrip is amazing. Those are my brothers and I love working with them. As for me and ‘FIJI’, we’re not affiliated but I heard some of their people like the song!

If you could collaborate with any one established artist in the future who would you choose & why?

I gotta choose Cudi. I appreciate his artistry so heavily and he helped get me through my high school depression. He’s the GOAT.

And lastly, what can we expect in 2018 for Sam Austins in terms of new music?

I can’t say much but know that I’m coming back harder than I ever have. I have goodies for all. Haha.

KID JAY ROCKS OUT WITH STEVE HARVEY!!!

Published

Uncle P: We have had the privilege of watching you grow as an artist. How did this connection between you and Steve Harvey come about?

Kid Jay: Last year I was one of the mentees in the Steve Harvey Program and I got to talk to him, Charlamagne and Jeezy. I showed them my poem I wrote about George Floyd and how I work with kids on the Autistic Spectrum and they loved it. Charlamagne Tha God told me “your positive message is needed in hip hop”. It felt good hearing good things about me coming from other rappers in the game that I look up to like Jeezy.

Uncle P: What did it feel like to have someone with the stature of Steve Harvey gravitate towards you?
Kid Jay: It meant the world to me because I grew up watching the Steve Harvey Show so obviously I’m a big fan. So for him to fly me out to speak to the youth felt so unreal, I wouldn’t change the experience for anything .
Uncle P: Tell us about the most recent experience that you had with Mr Harvey?
Kid Jay: We were at the Mentoring Camp in Atlanta and they had their own Basketball tournament going on. Mr. Harvey was a coach and I thought it was hilarious how serious he took the games.
Uncle P:  You have been thrusted into being a role model and a mentor for young people. Is it hard? What challenges have you had with yourself still being young and figuring life out?
Kid Jay: It’s a lot of pressure that comes with being a role model, but I’m willing to take on that responsibility because at the end of day what I’m trying to do is save and encourage our youth. I know I still have a lot to figure out about myself, but everybody is a work in progress and If I can be the one to help the youth progress even farther than I will.
Uncle P: Do you find it challenging to be a positive force in the music industry when it seems like all your peers want to hear is music that doesn’t necessarily utilize or feed the soul in a productive manner?
Kid Jay: Yeah, because right now music has a specific sound and that’s the type of music listeners wanna hear because they’re used to it. I’ve always said as long as music sounds good to the ear, I love it and one day everybody else will because my music is GOOD.
Uncle P:  What’s Harvey’s favorite song of yours?
Kid Jay: Golden Child, he likes the old school beat because it got that West Coast Feel.
Uncle P: Tell me about this record you just dropped with your brother?
Kid Jay:  I dropped a track with my brother just for fun and everybody went crazy for it all over Facebook and Instagram. We spent like 3 hours recording it laughing, trying to figure out what we were gonna say, but I’m glad we did it because my brother is my best friend.
Uncle P: We are just over halfway done with 2022. How do you plan out closing the year?
Kid Jay: I plan on dropping a new song every 2 weeks for the rest of the year because I wanna be more consistent
