Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers?
EClemz : My name is Evan DeClemente aka EClemz. I’m 18 years old and I’m from Floral Park, Long Island, NY. Born and raised. I am currently a college student and I work partime. I’m also a hip hop/rap artist.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into this profession?
EClemz : I’ve always enjoyed hiphop growing up. I first started rapping in 8th grade, when I was 13. I started because of this app where you can make like a quick 45seconds – 1 minute song and then you can battle other artists on the game with that song or whatever song you created and I had loads of fun on it. Then I stopped for about 2 and a half years cuz I didn’t think people liked what I was doing. Then when I was in 11th grade I got back into it and continued to get better from there on out. I would say some of my inspirations for rapping would be: Logic, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Biggie, Drake.
Twist Online : Tell us about your debut single ‘Solo Life’.
EClemz : Well, my song Solo Life is about being your own person, having fun, being single, and yeah just having fun with it. Solo Life was actually written for a couple months but never had any equipment to record it so I kind of pushed it aside for a little. Then I eventually recorded with an actual mic and professional equipment and I had fun with it!
Twist Online : What kind of response you are expecting from this release?
EClemz : Well my friends and family really like this song. Some of them were like “this is you”? But, I’m hoping to get good responses from people. That would be great if people could bump to this on the radio or clubs or even parties! That would be dope to just be driving somewhere and then turning on the radio and hearing your own song being played or even walking into a club!
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
EClemz : My favorite has to be Hiphop/Rap
Twist Online : What are your future goals as music artist, ?
EClemz : My goals would consist of being a successful artist, making it to the big leagues, featuring on songs with my inspirations and many more talented artists, and just making it to the top. I just wanna be able to say “I made it”
Twist Online : Are you working on any other new project? when it will be released?
EClemz : I am working on writing more songs. But no clue when they will be released yet. I have to finish writing them. But, I just released a new song on 10/22/16 called: Gon Get It. People were asking for more songs and I was like bet! They “Gon Get It”
