24: Introduce yourself to everyone that doesn’t already know who you are.
Streets: I’m Street$ aka Street Money or Streets whatever you want to call me, no preference.
24: Before we get into your music, can you describe what your history is about and how you got into music and and what inspired you?
Streets: I bounced around all over the South when I was younger. From being born in Texas, then moving to Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, and then back to Texas by the time I was 21. I got to listen to a lot of different music from different regions. The fact that your music can be an expression of yourself while many others can feel and see you’re vision inspires me.
24: What was the Hip-Hop scene like for you growing up where you’re from?
Streets: Growing up in Louisiana in the 90s and early 2000s, I listened to No Limit and Cash Money a lot. A lot of artists from Louisiana and surrounding areas.
24: What makes you unique as an artist and different from other rappers out now?
Streets: I actually have something to say.
24: Tell us about what you are working on.
Streets: Right now I just been promoting my new mixtape, Street Money: Road to Riches. I shot a video for “Ace Boogie” recently. That will be dropping soon, also a video for “Be Yourself” will be recorded and “Kush in My Cigarillo” with King Dice will get a visual soon as well. Just been grinding, recording new material too.
24: What producers have you worked with and who would you like to work with in the future?
Streets: I’ve gotten a few beats from Cooarri, LexiBanks, and GMoney. Young Chop, Zaytoven, and Lex Luger beats on point usually.
24: Are you happy with the feedback you have been getting from people on material you have released?
Streets: Yeah, most definitely, everybody has been feeling it from what I know. I like all feedback, because there’s always room for improvement.
24: In today’s free download age, what do you need to do to make your self a household name?
Streets: Create a brand and learn how to market it. You have to start a movement that people want to be a part of.
24: How do you feel about the current state of the Hip-Hop scene?
Streets: For the most part I think it’s garbage. Just catchy, club music, everyone striving so hard to be different they get away from what’s important, the music. Bars.
24: Outside of the music, what else are you currently working on?
Streets: Getting my clothing brand pushed out. Street Money.
24: Where do you see yourself going in 2013 and how do you plan to separate yourself from the other artist out today to get the recognition you feel you deserve?
Streets: I’m going to be everywhere. I have to network with people, it’s not what you know it’s who you know. That’s so true when it comes to this music, really life in general but networking is going to be the main focus. I know the music is good, I just need the right people to hear it.
