Today we are sharing an interview with Kilo M.O.E: music producer, songwriter, rapper and athlete from New Jersey.
1. First of all, tell us about how did you start your music career?
— By chance and circumstance. 10 years prior to my start I was a successful personal trainer and ameteur bodybuilder. I've had some injuries throughout that career
and during a down time I realized I had some severe spinal problems which led me to early retirement. From there while battling a pain killer addiction. I created the company O.M.G Entertainment, inc. with an idea of putting out music primarily into the streaming multimedia sector. From there the whole career was born.
2. Who are your music inspirations?
— Ghostface Killah from the Wutang Clan, Prodigy from Mobb Deep, Nas, Tragedy Khadafi, LL Cool J, and Micheal Jackson. I’ve studied these guys the most and attempt to get my story across in the way that they’ve accomplished.
3. Our readers would like to know more about your music. Any interesting facts?
— There are several actually. Oftentimes in a lot of my current works my more popluar ones I do things at times that seem "off tempo". That's exactly what's being done on the surface. That's simply because people have gotten so accustomed to hearing a rapper rhyme "on the one"... That's basically to the drum. Same thing... Forever and ever. No one ever wants to explore any other approach. Well, I dig much
deeper into a 'realm' "the ether" if you will whereas I tend to rhyme over smaller synths and sounds within the entire composition. I change that up at any moment like Jazz. From drum to synth to chord. I actually learned this from a young producer '02 at the time he was attending peabody music school in Baltimore. He actually produced beats this way. Well, after this I got with another producer and we started calling it the "headfake". It's a formula to it and it can't be duplicated. Causes people to play the song over and over trying to figure out why it's happening,
what it is, and why it makes sense. This is actually the first time Ive discussed it out in the open. So you just caught yourself an exclusive.
4. What opinions have you recieved about your music?
— They vary and it always depends on the song. I don't do the same thing each song I put out. Hell, I dont do the same thing within a verse. Across the internet and in magazines the acclaim is there. Way too many to name. I've been called garbage, different, old, great, genius, intellectual, and anything over and above those descriptions. People aren't sure how to recieve me simply because they can't find a box to put me in. That's exactly what I set out to do. Not only in music but in life as well. Average and basic are two opinions my name can never be associated with.
5. What do you like to do more: songwriting or performing?
— I enjoy them both equally. These aren't items one can choose between because they are different. You might could prefer one more however I enjoy them both.
6. Which countries do you want to visit with tour?
— Eastern Europe and Dubai of course. I've lived overseas for four years in my youth
and I love Europe. Europe loves me. Dubai is just somewhere I want to experience and enjoy the opulence as that type of world is what I hang my hat on.
7. How do you deal with haters?
— I don't. When you've reached a place in your heart where someone else causes you to hate. Well, you've dealt with yourself for better or for worse. Good luck with that deal... "Hater".
8. What would you tell to your fans?
— Hang in there while I develop this thing! The best is yet to come and it is in the oven cooking as we speak! This journey will be worth your time and support. That exclusively I appreciate with all of my heart and soul.
