Who is Maddness?
Recording artist/producer, Maddness, released the music video to his latest single, “Home Luv.”
He lived a rough life and even though his biological mother was unable to play a parental role in his life, he was raised mostly by his grandmother who instilled great values. Maddness, for the most part, had to learn the do’s and don’ts from the streets the rest of the way.
Check out the interview with Maddness.
Tell me about your new single “Home Luv”:
Maddness: I wanted to give back to my community in the DC area. Everyone has a place where they come from and where they develop a sense of home.
Did you collaborate with anyone?
Maddness: I write all the lyrics to all the songs I formulate. The beat music was done by Dreamlife.
How is your music different from other artists in your genre?
Maddness: I don’t include fantasy or anything I haven’t dealt with. I’m more passionate about what I’ve dealt with and what I’ve been through. My music is still metamorphic. I’m still growing and I’m still finding myself as I go.
How did you get started in music?
Maddness: It wasn’t something I chose. It’s one of them things where it chose me. I always loved to do it. It was my passion. I did it a few times and the reaction of the people was like ‘you need to do something, that’s hot.’ The reaction of the crowd is the real fuel to an artist. That was the main driver. When you get that reaction from people who love what you’re doing, it’s motivation. I love the reaction I get from people.
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
Maddness: I’m grinding right now. I’m working hard. Who knows? I don’t know what this road has suited for me. I’ll just wait to find out. I’m getting good feedback from people. I’m looking forward to being comfortable on what I love to do.
