1. What has changed in the process of making music since you began
WHEN I STARTED MAKING MUSIC I WAS VERY YOUNG AND I WAS JUST MAKING BEATS, TOO SHY TO RAP OR TAKE THE SPOTLIGHT. OVER THE YEARS AFTER WORKING WITH LOADS OF RAPPERS AS A BEATMAKER I FELT LIKE I WAS WAY BETTER OF A RAPPER THAN ALL THESE GUYS WITH THEIR BIG MOUTHS SO I JUST WENT FOR IT, THEN I BUILD A FANBASE FROM THE FIRST VIDEO I DROPPED AND THAT GAVE ME A LOT OF CONFIDENCE.
2. Do you find that it's easier or harder to connect with your fanbase now?
IN THE BEGINNING WHEN I STARTED RAPPING I WAS CONSTANTLY CHATTING WITH FANS, BEING AROUND PEOPLE AND JUST GRINDING MY ASS OFF, TRYING TO FEED MY EGO. AFTER A WHILE THAT SHIT GOT OLD AND I GOT KINDA BORED BY GETTING THE SAME TYPE OF RESPONSES BY EVERYBODY. ITS JUST SO BORING WHEN PEOPLE LICK YOUR BALLS WHEN THEY WANT TO GET SOMETHING FROM YOU. NOT EVEN SURE IF SOME OF THEM EVEN WERE A FAN OF MY MUSIC OR OF MY VIEW COUNTS...
3. How has real life responsibilities interfered with your music or is there an equal balance?
OH I MESSED UP FOR SOME YEARS, BESIDES THIS I HAVE A BIG YOUTUBE CHANNEL WITH BULLSHIT VIDEOS AND I WAS USED TO MAKING A LOT OF MONEY, WHEN LAWS CHANGED I WAS PRETTY STUCK FOR A LONG TIME TRYING TO MAKE IT IN RAP MUSIC, OR TO GET MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL MONITIZED AGAIN, OR AT LEAST TO EARN ENOUGH TO LIVE. SO I WOULDNT SEE THE OTHER POSSIBILITIES, WICH NOWADAYS, LUCKILY, I HAVE(I STARTED FREELANCING AS A VIDEO EDITOR)
4. Are you happy with what status you are at now or is there an ultimate achievement?
YEAH IM GOOD IM NOT EVEN TRYING TO GAIN STATUS I JUST LIKE TO GET CREATIVE FOR FUN, THIS WHOLE STATUS SHIT GETS OLD.
5. Where does your dominant fanbase hail from?
ALL OVER THE WORLD REALLY.
6. What accomplishments would you like to see within music in the coming months?
IM WORKING ON A NEW SONG WHERE I TALK ABOUT QUITTING MY WEED ADDICTION, THAT SHIT IS THE REALEST STUFF IVE WROTE EVER, JUST NOT SURE HOW TO PACK IT AND STUFF. BUT HOPE THAT THAT GOES WELL, IF I EVEN DROP IT...
7. How excited are you for the future? What can you tell us about your future?
SUPER EXCITED, IM TRAVELLING A LOT, SPENDING GOOD TIME WITH MY PEOPLE, LEARNING NEW (CREATIVE) THINGS EVERYDAY AND I SEE A LOT OF OPEN OPTIONS. WELL SEE WHERE THE SHIP GOES!
8. Was the name made by you? Why?
HALF, I JUST TOLD MY BUDDY I WANTED A 'BLITZKRIEG' TYPE OF NAME FOR MY RAP NAME, SO HE TOLD ME 'GEIST!' AND I WAS LIKE, THATS COOL BUT A LIL TOO SERIOUS.. SO I JUST PUT LIL IN FRONT OF IT TO MAKE IT A BIT MORE FUN
9. What's next from here? Dreams?
I HAVE TOO MANY DREAMS, IM JUST EDITING A LOT OF VIDEOS RIGHT NOW FOR A LOT OF DIFFERENT ARTISTS, COMPANIES AND YOUTUBERS, VERY GRATEFUL BUT IM HOPING TO REALLY GET MY NAME OUT THERE AS A VIDEO EDITOR SOMEDAY.
10. How did you start?
JUST SITTING ON MY DADS(RIP) COMPUTER DOWNLOADING THESE MUSIC PROGRAMS AND WANTING TO MAKE DRUMS TO SUPPORT ME WHILE I WAS PLAYING THE GUITAR. TURNED OUT I LIKED THE ELECTRONIC PART MORE THAN THE GUITAR...
