Interview With Brandon Redd @BrandonRedd305 IG BrandonRedd305


1. How Long Have You Been In The Rap Industry?
I have been doing music for a little over a decade now. I started when I was around 14 years old, so I’ve definitely put in the 10,000 hours to really hone in on my skills and learn as much as I can up until this point in my passion.

2. Who Are Your Major Influences In Your Music?
This question is always a hard one for me because I listen to a lot of genres that don’t just revolve around rap. I love Hip-Hop, R&B, alternative rock, EDM, etc. which have so many dope artists, DJs, and producers. If I had to give an answer, I would say I’m more so influenced by the vibes that certain songs and mixes give me rather than just the individual. Of course, I do have artists that have catalogues that just resonate with me. Off the top of my head, the Neighborhood, The Weekend, Wayne, Cole, Drake, Ye and Hov are entertainers that I can say have had an influence on my music in some way, shape or form.

3. What Is Your First Single? – Or What Single Do You Have Out Now?
The current single I have out now is called, “Potential”. The music video is running on BET Jams and is live on YouTube. You can listen to it on all streaming platforms too.

4. Who Do You Have On Your Album?
So far, it’s just me on my songs. I write, produce, and perform everything you hear from me, so all of my tracks are 100% Brandon Redd. I’d love to collaborate with artists when I do decide to sit down and craft an album length project. For now, I’m going to be releasing singles, but my EP, “TEAZR,” and first album, “Sports Cars and Broken Hearts” is available to stream right now until I drop a new project.

5. How Did You Get Into The Rap Industry?
I actually got into the industry by way of poetry. I really enjoyed it growing up and it just translated into me playing with rhyme schemes over instrumentals. From that point, I just kept practicing and falling deeper in love with music than I ever had been before. It really became my true passion.

6. Where Were You Born? – Where Do You Live Now?
I was born in Miami, FL and still live down here in SoFLo. Weather’s good and the lifestyle is unmatched. I love waking up in paradise every day.

7. Who Would You Like To Work With That You Haven’t Already?
I would really like to work with Timbaland. He’s my favorite producer and I think if we ever did work together, we could make some timeless records.

8. Who Is Your Favorite Rapper You Like Right Now?
If I’m being honest, I would have to say myself. I’m in a creative zone right now that I’m just so excited to keep sharing with the world. The reception I’ve been getting from my newest single has been overwhelmingly positive, and I just want to keep dropping heat for my fans and supporters.

09. Who Do You Think Is The Hottest Producer Out? – What Would You Say To That Producer On Why They Should Work With You?
Take a Daytrip for sure. Every time I hear one of their beats, I’m like “WTF.” If they were in front of me right now, I’d let them know that I’m the next up and I plan on being around for a long time, so let’s tear the industry up with some music that they can’t get anywhere else but right here.

10. How Did You Come Up With Your Album Title?
No album title yet for my next project, but It’ll come to me once I really get into the thick of making it.

11. What Is Your Favorite Song On Your Album?
No album work has really started just yet. I’m focusing on singles to help keep growing my buzz first, but “Potential” is definitely a slapper. I can’t wait for people to hear what I got coming next.

12. Which Song On Your Album Means The Most to You?
If I had to choose a song from my catalogue that means the most to me, I would say that “Lettin’ them know” means the most. That was the outro for my project “Sports Cars and Broken Hearts” and I poured my heart and soul into that record at the time. It’s a track that I’m super proud of from the production to the lyrical content. Truly one of my best.

13. Who Are You Signed With?
I’m unsigned.

14. When Is Your Album Release Date?
No album release date at the moment.

15. What Cities Do You Plan On Touring?
God-willing, I plan on touring all over the country. I do have my eyes set on a Florida tour though. I think that’d be pretty dope to do in the meantime.

16. What Female Rapper Or Artist Do You Think Is The Sexiest?
I think there are a lot of beautiful queens in the industry that put out some incredible music and it’s dope to see them get the spotlight and recognition that is more than well-deserved. I look forward to collaborating with some dope female artists throughout my time in the industry.

17. What Would You Like To See From The Music Industry Over The Next Year?
What I’d like to see from the music industry over the next year is me at the top of it. That’s going to take a lot of work on my end, but I’m ready to put in the work to make it a reality. I love this profession so much and I think that’s what’s going to help me a lot along this journey. You gotta have fun with this thing man.

18. What Is Your Second Single Going To Be?
Me and my team are debating on which one to release next, but the front runner looks like “Hold Back” right now. Can’t wait to drop that one.

19. If You Could Compare Yourself To An Already Established Artist, Who Would That Be And Why?
Based on pure artistry, I would say Cole and Ye. They’re two prominent rappers that also produce their music, so I definitely see a bit of myself in them in that regard.

20. What Do You Think Your Listeners Will Get Out Of Your Music?
I make my songs from my own personal experiences which I think is the best way to create. My goal in doing that is for people to not only get a little more insight into who I am but who they are. I’ve had fans reach out to me and let me know how specific lines or bars in my songs really hit home for them. The biggest takeaway I think people get from my music is the honesty and genuine emotion I evoke which makes it easily digestible.

21. What Were You Thinking About When Your Songs Are Developed? Explain Your Process?
With me being a producer and artist, my song building process can go one or two ways. I either start making the beat first or write the song first. Both ways typically start with some inspiration that I get from a conversation I’m having with someone, a situation I’m dealing with or something as simple as the way the light shines on a leaf outside. The inspiration behind the song is always the key to my creativity, so once I have that, I build upon that idea until I have a rough version of the song. After that, I focus on fine-tuning and layering the song to give it its own true identity.

22. Who Got You Started In The Rap Industry?
My mom is really the reason I decided to take rap seriously. She used to spit back in the day, so she played a big part in helping groom me into the artist I am today. “Lettin’ them know” is the song where I really earned her respect musically, and after that, it was full steam ahead on a career in music.

23. What Made You Want To Get Into The Music Business?
The main reason for me even wanting to be in this business is to be able to do what I love and make a good living off of it. I couldn’t imagine my life without music, so why not do it professionally? It makes me happy and I get to connect with so many people through it. It’s a win win for me.

24. How Does Your Family Feel About Your Music And Your Choice Of Career?
My family is extremely supportive of my music and decision to pursue a career in the music business. I’m thankful to God that I have their support because I don’t know where I’d be without them having my back at every turn.

25. What Is The Most Difficult Thing You’ve Had To Endure In Life?
The most difficult thing I’ve had to endure is learning how to be patient. Everything happens for a reason and God’s timing is impeccable, so it took me years to really just appreciate the journey. I had to learn to be present and not look too far ahead and miss out on the good things I had right in front of me.

26. What Do You Hope To Accomplish With Your Music?
I hope to be revered as one of greatest artists of all-time. I want my music to touch the lives of so many people that they continue to play my songs for generations to come, and in turn, inspire a new generation of artists that will contribute their art to the world.

27. What’s The Demographic You Are Trying To Reach Out To?
I want to reach the people that are looking for an artist they can feel a range of emotions with. I want to reach the people that need a night out on the town with their friends and the people that need a good cry to get through what they’ve got going on. With that being said, that demographic comes in all ages, sexes, religions and outlooks on life, so as long as I’ve got someone from that’s coming to listen to my music to really feel something, that’s who I do it for.

28. How Do You Usually Come Up With Your Songs?
I usually come up with my songs from just living life. I got into music through poetry, so a lot of my tracks are therapy for me. I write about how I feel at any given time whether that be partying and poppin out with my squad or me trying to cope with downfalls I may have.

29. What Is Your Goal And Height That You Want To Reach With Your Music?
Like I mentioned before, I want to be revered as one of greatest artists of all-time. I’m a competitive person, so I want to break records and make songs that are timeless. I have fun doing what I do, but I also take it very seriously. I love this so much and my legacy is very important to me.

30. What Influenced You Outside Of Hip Hop Rap That Has Helped You Form Your Style?
I would have to say just growing up in the South has helped me form my style. I think some of the most interesting people live down here and there’s just a lot of history. There’s so much to be learned and I just feel like the experience is very unique, especially being from Miami.

31. How Can People Reach You?
I can be found on all social media platforms @brandonredd305. Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok, Youtube, etc. I’m there and I love interacting with fans, so definitely follow!
