Today we’d like to introduce you to 9to5 Th3 Producer.
9to5, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
It all started when I was about 11 or 12 years old. My mom’s boyfriend at the time would leave his boss drum machine at our house often. Me being a nosey kid, I would often play around with the machine but I really didn’t know what I was doing at the time. It took me a while but I got the hang of it. Ever since then, I just kept working on my craft, just putting in hours and hours each day you know. I would often look at videos on YouTube and study my favorite producers like Kanye, Timbo, and Just Blaze. It wasn’t up until my sophomore year in college that I really started taking production seriously while having a conversation with my friends. I was able to create a name for myself and come up with the marketing and branding side of things since I never had a manager. I was even able to land an internship with MBK entertainment under Jeff Robinson, who was responsible for some of Alicia Keys and H.E.R success. There I was able to see the in & out’s of the music business. This gave me all the confidence and knowledge to really go after my dreams.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No, it hasn’t been the smoothest road, but that’s the beauty of it you know?
Dealing with the mind,
Were all creatives so we go through a whole bunch of emotions like fear, doubt, depression, loneliness just to name a few. I think once we start to realize who we are as a person and start loving the person in the mirror thing start to become more clearer & clearer.
Balancing Btw Work and Dreams,
I know for me the toughest thing is balancing a job and also pursuing a dream that has nothing to do with each other. I use my job to fund my music career because right now my Job brings in more income than music. This can be very hard for someone who has a fast-paced in-demand job environment where you have to bring work home sometimes. But one of the ways I’ve gotten through this struggle was to separate the two. I don’t let work stress interfere with my music AT ALL!!!
Developing Tough Skin,
Along the road, I’ve experienced a majority of people who don’t particularly like my music or look down to you because you’re not a big name artist or producer. Well, almost every successful person has experienced some type of adversity. You can either do two things either work harder and use that as motivation or beat yourself up about it and get nowhere.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
“Last Day on the Job” is the name of my business. The phrase comes from the belief that once we as working folks leave our jobs and things that make us feel unhappy and controlled, we will be reborn again and you will be your true self in any aspect of life. It’s basically a metaphor for a new beginning. Right now, we are a music production entertainment-focused company, but in the future, we are looking to get involved in more endeavors. The areas in which we specialize are music production and video production for artists, TV, and film. What sets us apart from everyone else is that we are hands-on with our clients and we want you to succeed. We do this by offering lifetime promo services for each of our clients. Well, continue to promo and showcase any project that we create or are apart of.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was a quiet kid. I had a lot of friends but I kept to myself a lot. I like music growing up, I would listen to everything and all types of genre. Interest wise, I loved playing basketball. I definitely had serious hoop dreams but I chose to take the music route.
