Death Chamberz Music Interview June Da Kid

Death Chamberz Music Interview June Da Kid


1.       How did you get your name

Born a jr. around the way people just started  calling me June, so when I first started trying to develop an internet presence, I started with June. The problem was that "June" wasn't searchable, it was too broad. So I added "Da Kid" so it would be easier to find my work online.

2.    What inspired you to become a artist?

Writing music was something that made me feel good, music has always made me feel good. I've been listening to it so long that and writing music so long, I can't remember what exactly inspired me,  I honestly believe it's just a part of me.

3.       When and how  did you start? And have you created any records yet? or mixtape?

I first starting recording with a group called "The Have Nots" about 10 years ago. They gave me my start. Since than, I've released "Prelude To The Storm" (2004),  "Headliner The Mixtape"(2007), "Something To Live For The Mixtape" (2009), and my latest release was "I'm Living The Project"(2013). "Prelude To The Storm" is being remastered, but the rest are available for Free Download on www.junedakid.com

4.       What’s your favorite thing to do when you aren’t writing/producing/playing etc?

I'm into physical fitness, I work out a lot, so I spend a nice amount of time in the gym. I also do a lot of reading about foods and diets. Most of the other things I really like doing are related to music. Working out and personal health overall is definitely something I do that is totally separated from my music

5.       Who are your musical inspirations?

There are many so I will keep it to two. DMX "It's Dark And Hell Is Hot" was an Iconic album. X had everyone barking and running around acting all wild. The other is Tupac's "Makaveli". That will always be my favorite cd of all time. My goal is to recreate something as great as that. Tupac is my favorite rapper, the amount of music released after his death goes to show what he was about, and his work ethic and dedication is probably my biggest inspiration.

6.       What kind of music do you listen to today?

I tried to keep a open mind so I listen to a lot of stuff. If I hear about something thats supposed to be hot, I usually seek it out no matter the genre. Right now I'm listening to the latest from Drake, Logic, B.O.B. Lorde, and Justin Timberlake.

8.       Todays music is about collaborations what "hot" rapper out now, you would love to work with on a project?

I would like to work with Drake, and Logic. Two artist from the places I'm from.  I was born in Toronto, but moved to Maryland when I was young. I still have family in Toronto , and I still visit, so it is still a big part of who I am.

9.       What do you think your listeners will get out of your music?

I think listeners will get a very versatile listening experience. I try to make music for everyone while staying true to what I believe in. 

10.   What do you hope to do with your music?

I hope to keep giving people quality music. I never want to look back on what I was releasing and feel that it wasn't a quality.

11.   Where do you see the generation heading?

It's hard to say, they have a lot of bad music being released. You also have a lot of good music being released. So its hard to say where that trend is heading.

12.   Is there any advice you'd like to give to young aspiring producers ?

Keep working on their craft. That is how you learn and also how you get better. It also gives you more opportunities to create something magical.

13.   What projects should we be on the lookout for in the near future?

Currently I'm working on something for this summer. I don't want to say to much right now, but expect a new video coming real soon that will let you know more.

14.   Any shout outs?

All the hard working artist, producers, bloggers and promoters who are trying to build there brand. Much success to you all. I also want to thank the staff of Death Chamberz Music for being a respectable media outlet giving artist a platform to reach new listeners.
