Today we’d like to introduce you to AmirSaysNothing.
AmirSaysNothing, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I was born in New York City, grew up there and everywhere from Boston to Charlotte. I graduated high school and moved out to LA because I wanted to be a pro skateboarder, and this is where you do that kind of thing. I used to rap for fun with my friends, but I always took it real seriously and always been a music head and one thing led to another and I took a leap and here we are today. I’m a musician, I’m a rapper.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
My music is probably best described as life music. Everything I do comes from a real place, not so much like “It’s gotta be real” but it’s just the way I make art is perspective, its expression. The art that is my favorite is like that, so naturally that’s what I do. With every project, you’re getting a snapshot of me and the world around me and how it is in that day. some projects were done in a bad place, or an angry one, so the beats are louder, delivery is more aggressive. Others are made in the opposite. It takes me back to this idea that I have that a lot of the musicians we listen to and enjoy have something about them that we identify with, I want my fanbase to have that same genuine connection and feeling when they listen to me because that is what makes us all feel understood — also packing that in just fire production and fire raps ;).
What would you recommend to an artist new to the city, or to art, in terms of meeting and connecting with other artists and creatives?
I say you gotta find your tribe, and they may not always look like what you imagine. Some of my greatest artist friends are guys like my dude Tony Pops, who’s a singer. We’re in totally different worlds in ways but we’re great friends and through that, we’ve made great art by finding ways to bring our worlds together. That’s one of the main things to doing this for the long haul. It takes a village.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
My music is where you listen to music. Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, etc. on all social media, I am @amirsaysnothing if you want to connect with me there and stay up on things. Play the music, come to the shows, wash, rinse, repeat.
