Linxstar

Music is an art form. I feel music should be as respected as any other discipline is. A painter can take weeks crafting his masterpiece, irking over every last detail "no it just aint right yet" that's how I am with music. I respect the craft, thats why i refer to myself as a musician and not just a rapper. I make Rap/Hip-Hop music that'll take you from bopping in the club to thinking bout the one you love. So yea I'm long like that.



Tell us about you and how you would you describe your "art"?

So yea I'm long like that.

Where are you based?
Live and craft my trade in the BW's capital Gaborone.

How long have you been making "art" and how did you get started?
I recorded my first ever verse with a pc headset mic on my boys laptop back in 2008, but even then i wasn't really rapping. I started making more recordings starting in 2011. I just got together with a friend, "The OmegA-Man" of mine who made beats and said lets work on a tape..the rest is history.

Do you come from an artistic background?
Yea i'd say so. I grew up around lots of music. My sister use to bump that ol' school RnB. My cousins bumped that hot hip hop..so i was always hearing music. Nomadic & Man-E were with P-Side at the time and we family right, i'd find it sooo fascinating that they got to be on tracks and i could bump their recording right along side Biggie or Slim. So yea although i never played an instrument or nothing, I've always been around music.

What inspires you? What are your influences (Who or What)?
Uhm..my mates, and my life in general. I love being able to replay an event in my life for ya'l in such a cool way ya'll almost think i made it up. I really enjoy Drake's music, J Cole, and before them Lupe & Eminem (just to mention a few) because the pictures they painted with their words put me in the exact same space they were in, almost like i was watching a movie staring them. So i'm really inspired by just things around me and they crazy ish we get into. It could be girls, it could be a good night out it could someone else's story that i'm close to and needs to be told..yea

What is your most proud accomplishment so far?
Geez i have so many, because i'm grateful for EVERYTHING that happens to me with regards to my music. Gun to my head tho, it would have to be getting the call from Khuli Chana & him asking if i'd like to come drop a set at his Bday party in Mafikeng last October. yea that was dope.

What are your tools for creating?
this is where ya'll see i'm really just a..i dont.. uhm i fcuks with a program "Presonous Studio One" my mans TR-Hits put me onto that when i 1st started recording and i've stuck with it since. I just run it off my macbook pro. Behringer mic and Alesis soundcard..we good right!

What sets you apart from the others?
I true to myself and to the music, i'll never sell out and move away from who i am and what works best for me just to appeal to a certain demographic. I work really hard and dedicated endless amounts of time towards getting better and BETTER. Its the little things that set you apart, re doing a verse cause you know you fumbled a word, yea it sounds ok..but still you know its a fcuk up.. Attention to detail,,thats me..i go hard all the time.

Where are you trying to end up? (5 year plan?)
just like someone can work in the field of finance. I aim to work and make a living with music. The harsh reality of it is that Botswana and most of southern Africa doesn't allow to live solely off sales and shows. However in 5 years i would like to be touring different countries, collaborating with artists from all walks. Also i'd like to go into opening up recording studio and publishing houses. When you read about Linxstar in 5 years time i'll be shooting up most magazines top 30 under 30 not only in music but in lifestyle and entertainment.

What are your favorite things in life so far?
I would be able to live this life without my mates ey..."Man i love my team, man i love my team, I would die for ma n***a's awwwww' *DrakeVoice* hahaha. Music, wow..i cant live without music..geez Music is thee second most influence into who i am today after my family.

If we gave you P1M what would you do with it?
1st ama buy office space yea..set up a kick ass studio make a track about how i'm about to sh*t on ALL THESE N***AS..shoot a siiiick vid, drop it and then set up a HUGE ass screening party and BOOOM "Think i'm about to Blow Up!!" ahahha yea realtalk thats how it would go..i'd rent out the stu and then i'd also invest.

Any advice for people trying to do what you do?
U dont just wake up and be an accountant. What makes you think you can just wake up and be an internationally acclaimed artist?? To everybody tryna make music i'd say to you please do it for the right reasons, do it with all your heart and be patient as there is a LOT of time and leg work that goes into being good. Respect your craft.

Where can people buy/get a hold of your work?
right we still largely only available on social media platforms. We launching a website real soon, September 9th. www.tgblinxstar.com , that'll be where you can get all my works though. For just hit us urrp on FB & Twitter
