The Hype decided to converse more with Migs718 to weigh in on his music career!
As you see your self, who is Migs178, both as an artist and an individual?
Migs718: Migs718 is all energy. I have become an individual that doesn’t care about anyone’s opinion. I want everyone to know that I’m here and I’m not going nowhere. I will keep my foot on the games neck until I’m the best i can be.
I demand respect because my waves are getting bigger.
Take us on your journey into becoming Migs 718; what obstacles do you believe helped molded your character as an artist?
Migs718: Being scammed and not being taken seriously are big obstacles i had to learn to work with. There are a lot of snakes in the independent scene and people saw me as easy money when i started because i was a gung ho rookie in it. Now I’m not and I have accolades that blow those people’s stats out the water and nobody can touch the moves me and my team have made in such a small amount of time.
Who are your biggest influences in the music industry?
Migs718: My biggest influences have to be people like Travis Scott and Method Man. They both have shown me how to break boundaries and that it’s way cooler being different and just putting out whatever you feel like. I got a lot of ideas and I’m not scared to try out something totally different and I think that puts me at a whole different level.
If you were not able to become an artist; what other career fields interest you and why?
Migs718: I was a dancer first I have four years experience with choreographed work and casting calls and the grind behind it is just as wild as the music and that’s something i would probably be doing.
What projects should we expect in the near future?
Migs718: I have single after single after single recorded just waiting for the right time to drop as well as new visuals that are going to be put together to go with some of the tracks. I’m trying to up my game since I’ve only got one visual out I want to start drawing more eyes not just ears. Every track is hard and I’m rapping I believe my best since I started my rap career
