Artist INTERVIEW: PROKLAIM
1. Cru Cru Proklaim, super nice to have the chance to chat with you! What first got you into music?
Thank you and likewise. My interest in music stemmed from a constant enjoyment of listening to good hiphop..it resonated with me deeply since I was a kid and I have always been a fan of the art form. Eventually the thought of trying making music started stirring in me and never left. I just had to try explore the idea. I derive a great sense of satisfaction from creating music pieces I enjoy.
2. You're a poet. Who came first? The chicken or the Egg?
I'm a believer in creation so I'd say the chicken lol.
3) What would you do if you had a time machine?
I'd travel back in time to see what Dinosaurs looked like roaming the earth.
4) What memorable responses have you had to your poetic work?
Receiving a message from a young man in South Africa who said hearing my much motivated him to keep moving forward in life and specifically in his faith even when he faced struggles.
Also a recent vlogger wrote in his piece he believed some of the lines in a song he'd heard have potential to 'change the world'. That really touched me.
5. Do you think that technology is improving lives?
I think there are pros and cons to technology and it depends on how it is used. The key thing is to have balance. Technology has made so many aspects of life easier like communicating or buying and selling stuff or music distribution. There are disadvantages like it increases laziness and creates things like child pedophile rings etc.
6. Do you have a mentor or coach?
I'd say a great influence has been someone no longer alive...Bruce Lee...I really enjoy reading his teachings and quotes.
7. What’s your favorite poet?
I consider rap to be poetry..so I'd say Nas the rapper.
8.What are you most proud of?
Becoming a dad. Twins boy and girl. 🙏🏽
9. What’s your favorite 00’s album?
Distant Relatives by Damian Marley and Nas and Lupe Fisco's Food and liquour
