Daily Inspiration: Meet Rappinasspeso

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rappinasspeso.

Hi Rappinasspeso, 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’ve been extremely involved with music for as long as I can remember. My mother was the director of the youth choir, so I had to sing every Sunday at church. I also used to play the drums for my church. Music has been a moral value to my childhood and early teens, as I started figuring out who I was.

I started being sincere about music around the age of 16 when I recorded a song and saw the feedback it received. My progression has accelerated and branded me in numerous ways, from my artistry and creativity in fashion. In 2015, I launched my brand (FOREVER LEGENDARY) and it’s been coherent ever since. My brand and music coincide solely because I base everything I create off of passion love and authenticity. I feel I am where I am today because of my consistency, determination and love for the creativity. I believe people still purchase my clothing and stream my music because of my authenticity and humbleness.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has definitely been challenges and obstacles faced. Coming from South Central LA, there are daily challenges that we face as men and even boys. From the police to the gang politics alone, and I’ve been shot and encountered jail multiple times. So I say that to say anyone who overcame or made it out and kept the focus is eminent.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am an artist as well as a clothing designer. If I had to describe my music, I wouldn’t be able to because I’m so versatile. My music has been said to touch the soul. So I aspire to inspire. I have music out with Grammy nominated TeeFlii, Joey Fatts, Osbe Chill, Benji Stone and more. I design clothes mainly because I love fashion. All of my garments are cut and sewn and Imported from overseas. I believe in distinctiveness and authenticity. Quality will always be one of the reasons I think my brand will part me from others.

If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
I honestly feel consistency and authenticity are the two main factors of success. With consistency comes progression and with authenticity comes distinction. I feel if you stick with whatever it is you do and trust the process its no way you can fail.
