Music: Interview with Hip Hop Musician Cxnshus

We have another talented musician to introduce today. Check out this interview to learn more about this artist's life and work!

Please tell us a little about your background and where you are from.

My name is Tyrone Pritchett but I go by the stage name Cxnshus (Conshus). I'm from Baltimore, Maryland. I'm the oldest of 1 sister and 4 brothers. My mom raised me as a single parent when my dad passed away in 2005 of natural causes. 

Thanks for sharing. When did you realize you had a calling for music?

I realized I had a calling for music when I was in elementary school or maybe before that. I can't remember, because I started writing poetry at a young age. It just came to me and I remember when I got my first CD by Mario, I played it on my 6 disk CD changer everyday, and the first Rap song I remembered was “I know I can” by Nas. I used music to help me through my bullying through middle and high school, because I felt like I could be myself without anyone judging me.

That’s good that you focused on writing and on music to go through hard times. Who was your greatest influence to follow in the music career? Why?

I think my greatest influences are Nas, Kanye West, and anything Pop, Edm, or House. Nas and Kanye West inspired my lyricism and honesty in all of my songs, but the genre of Pop and House music influences my vibes, and the energy I bring to all of my music. I find it funny how I love Hip Hop so much, but I mostly listen to Pop or House music like The Night Crawlers, Calvin Harris and so on. Pop music just makes me feel alive and free.

You have an eclectic taste! Do you also write the lyrics and compose your songs?

I write all my songs and I composed a good number of them.

When was the first time you attended a live musical performance, and how did you feel?

The first performance I seen was Mobb Deep in concert, and all I could think was I wanna be on that stage one day.

I hope you will be on that stage. And talking about your own live performances, is there a specific performance you feel was your best so far? If so, where and why?

I feel like my best performance was when I performed in front of 100 people in the middle of my local mall. The crowd and cheers drove me to do outstanding on stage. 

Seems like you really had fun! What do you enjoy the most between your interactions with the fans?

The thing I enjoy the most about my fans would be how honest they are with me. I've had people tell me my songs have helped them through depression and issues they've dealt with for long periods of time. I feel like I could never be too famous to send the tweet or respond to that message to show them not only are the listening to me, but there's someone listening to them also.

That’s very thoughtful of you as an artist. How do you draw inspiration to write your music? 

The way I draw inspiration is through emotions and reading.

What are you working on now and what are your plans for the future? 

My plans for the future is to hit the bigger festival and venues to connect with more people. 

Where can we find and buy your music?

You can buy my music on Apple.

I have an album out called The Vault:

Awesome! Is there anything else you'd like to add?

The last think I'd like to add is dreams are as real as you make them. Never let someone tell you unimaginable things are just fairytales, because there's a Cinderella born every day. Keep on believing. Thanks so much for this opportunity.

Thank you! That is a wonderful advice. Much success to you in your musical future!
