Conversations with Question

Today we’d like to introduce you to Question.

Hi Question, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I’m a blind Artist & Producer from Atlanta. I have been musically talented for most my life, I’m self-taught on several instruments, began freestyling at the age of five and making beats at age 12. I pride myself on studying different cadences and including multiple genres of music in my sound.

I have won over 20 beat battles, winning trips to Grammy Week & SXSW in Austin. I competed in the 2019 Battle of the Beatmakers international beat battle in Toronto and was quickly favored to be a finalist. This brought an opportunity to be featured in a documentary with USA Today where an Emmy Award-winning journalist traveled to several states and filmed our journey (to be released late 2021). I am also a part of a collective of other blind Artists & Producers from around the US and Canada named Blind n Famous who frequently collab together. I was invited to join a non-profit, SoulFood Cypher, that teaches language and expression to students and others through freestyle workshops and events. I am now recording my debut album and plan to release it soon.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It’s been a great start to the ride. At certain times it’s hard to stay patient. I’ve had such high aspirations for most of my life, I try to practice remembering to appreciate every small goal I achieve along the way.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I record, as well as produce songs. I make beats, I mix vocals as well. I like to direct artists. I use my knowledge from each new thing I study in each project I am a part of. My goal is to shape the sound of music. I aim to be one of The main musicians responsible for the sound of today and tomorrow.

Do you have any advice for those just starting out?
Your network is your net worth. This means pay attention to people in the room, have conversations. Find the people that can benefit from what you have to offer, and give you something valuable in return. Stay patient. Confidence is key! Trust your gut! Stay true
