SR.Gent (pronounced like the military rank, “sergeant”) is our hip-hop revelation this week. With the release of “Teardrop” he caught our attention thanks to his powerful flow and melodic rap.
“Treadrop” showcases his amazing lyricism and his eclectic flow between rap bars, subtle touch of vanguard R’N’B ad above all catchy hooks.
If SR.Gent knows how to create hits, he also own a record label, LTP INC., and is helping other artists seize opportunities and supporting them in their career.
Enter his world now and read our conversation with him below :
Tell us who you are and how you started to make music!
I am SR.Gent disabled Afghanistan war veteran turned musician. I started making music in 2013 after finding out I was being medically retired from the U.S. Arm.
What inspires you to write music?
I am inspired to create music by my ability to do so because I believe that if music is meant to be shared so if you can create it you must.
What is your creative process?
I honestly don’t have much of a creative process as I am always getting ideas for songs, hooks, and or verses through my day. I manage this by recording everything that comes to my head using a voice recording app. I don’t write my music so the process is very natural and based on how I feel and my life experiences.
Can you describe your latest release?
My latest release titled Teardrop is an upbeat, conscious, pop track speaking about how I view the world and the issues we face. I was inspired to create it after a conversation with my daughter in which she asked if we could help all the hungry kids.
What do you plan for the future?
The future seems so far away, but it’s actually tomorrow. Thus I plan to continue to work daily on growing my record label brand (LTP INC), and fighting for independent artist rights. A large focus for me in the future will be a petition I started on Change.org hoping to give independent artists a voice in the changes coming to the music industry.
