What is your stage name?
– V of 40M
Is there a story behind your stage name?
– It was already written. The Creator put it in motion many eons ago you feel me. They called me V and I rep the M’s, heavy on the 4’s. We did some releases under “V” and searching just the letter V on anything wasn’t going to work so we brought it to the music you know.
Where do you find inspiration?
– The message is the motivation. 40M and all other movements, organizations, groups, etc will get our s*** together and when we do – independence is ours.
What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
– Music has been a big part since the beginning of this journey, mom had a radio that played music 24hrs a day. My Poppop and GrandMa were in the local Gospel group when I was small, etc. Then, since and prior, music has been a part of it all you dig.
Are you from a musical or artistic family?
– i am the first of my particular bloodline but in my extended, I have a cousin – Stevie Wellons who has had success as an independent act. Also a nephew, Kimani, who is doing his thing in Gospel/R&B I believe.
Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
– The resources and platform for 40M is what inspires me. I’m not trying to be no rapper for real, I just know what can done with what comes with it.
How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
– Ya’ll already know our people got it like that, s*** comes with the package at birth. The Creator is too good you feel me. Put the time in the fine tune your craft and you will see results.
What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
– Seen artist perform but never really been to a concert so I’ll get back to yall on that.
How could you describe your music?
Describe your creative process.
– I just let the Creator, the ancestors and the beat tell me what to do. I add a little sauce, add a little structure to the plate and voila!
What is your main inspiration?
– The people.
What musician do you admire most and why?
– Too many to count and for an assortment of different reasons but among them are Peter Tosh/Bob Marley and Public Enemy
Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
– Most definite, evolution is a part of growth you feel me.
Who do you see as your main competitor?
– i have none. Ain’t no competition, only opposition. Every motherf***er who opposes my people, the movement or the message in any form. From the government down to the passive supporters of it and all in between, you either the opps or the potential opps and we don’t rock with such.
What are your interests outside of music?
– The Creator/Source, Universe and the ancestors. Besides that my people, my family and the M’s. Big 40 on deck!
If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
– What I am doing now in and outside of the music, revolutionizing my people.
What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
– Resources, financing and opportunity. Most Black artist have the same issues anyway, at least initially, but because the M’s music is what it is – it’s especially hard you know.
If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?
– Control. The industry and all its extended components have too much control over not just our people, the whole world. The control belongs the people.
Why did you choose this as the title of this project?
– It’s lit a** title, would’ve been BLK PWR (Black Power) but I didn’t want to give away too much of the sauce or end up running motherf***ers away with the title before they even hear it.
What are your plans for the coming months?
– More M s***! More music, more visuals, more platforms, more work, more community projects and more awareness. We building, M by M – day by day!
Do you have any artistic collaboration plans
– Only the M’s at the moment.
What message would you like to give to your fans?
– Tap in! If you are Black or what we call a “Melanite” then this is for you! @Vof40M on all platorms, get in tune! If you are not, f*** with the vibes anyway – you know we lit for real!
