Five Questions With Joey Supratta
Joey Supratta (@) founder of Supratta Records is an Italian-American hip/hop artist/producer who calls Los Angeles home. He created his team back in 2013 with the goal to be known as one of the greats. Since that time, Supratta and the rest of the Supratta Family have hit the stages of some well known historical venues such as the legendary Viper Room and The Roxy Theater, claimed many Hip/Hop Showcase Competition titles, caught the attention of music writers and blogs who feel he’s earning his place in hip hop. Topping his media appearance list is an interview on LA’s very own 93.5 KDAY radio station, all while remaining independent. Catching the ears of a major radio station in a key US market bodes well for the young artist.
With his smart & business-like work ethic along with his clever and strong lyricism, there’s no denying Joey Supratta is an artist who is here to stay. You can find Joey Supratta’s music on iTunes as well as Spotify and Pandora.
Tell us about your current project!
Currently I’m working on a new EP produced entirely by Versace Dre. (Credits; The Family, B.O.S.S. L.I.F.E, No Ghosts feat. Ras Kass) Our work-flow together is just undeniable. With no release date set, we’re definitely taking our time and making sure this new project is the best it can possibly be.
Do you feel your current project is the best introduction to you as an artist?
Personally, I feel ALL my music best introduces me as an artist but with this new project in the works listeners/fans can definitely expect a step up. I always try to push the limits with my music so naturally with every new track comes progression. That’s just a part of growing as an artist.
What is the music landscape in your neck of the woods?
The music scene out where I’m from is amazing. The heart of it all. From Los Angeles to Hollywood with their well known venues, to Venice Beach with all of its street performers. All of these spots have some of the most talented artists performing daily. Music is a big part of LA. No surprise there. You just have to know how to take advantage of all the opportunities it has to offer.
What’s on your horizon for 2017?
For 2017 I’m going to be focusing on more visual productions. Music videos, documentary style clips, and even a brand new web-series concept I have for my team. Visuals are the main key for getting your music/team out there. The majority of artists nowadays have videos for nearly ALL of their music, and that’s something I have yet to mess with. I want to make sure I have the right music to put a visual to and thats exactly what I’m doing with this new project.
The Hype Magazine wants to know: What’s been your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?! Or “WTF?!” moment thus far in your career?
Ah man. My craziest “WTF” moment in my career? It’s simple. Seeing all of these talentless cats in the spotlight. Hip/Hop is more than just music. It’s a culture. It’s raw. It has passion and meaning. New age rappers have no concept of that. With todays “mumble rappers” all over the radio feeding these kids b.s about what Hip/Hop should sound like, there’s no way a true hip/hop head like myself wouldn’t say “WTF”.
