This week’s featured artist is Heir.
Introduce yourself to the world.
The name is Heir ( Air ) not her lol. I find much strength within myself through music and everything I live or desire to live I express that through my own music and movement. I’m young, quite flashy as expected, but I’m also refined and mean business at all times. I handle my own and keep 10 toes down while my back wheels burn rubber and everyone observes my takeoff, even I. Southeast, D.C is where I was born and raised and I represent for those who live just to see their family LIVE. I represent for those whose RIBS used to touch but now they too big.
When laying down the track in the studio, how do you like your sessions?
I enjoy sessions filled with overly creative and open minded, artistic individuals. I always ask for feedback and I relish the chances I get to work in conjunction with others who use music as their canvas to paint their reality in as many colors or shades of black and grey as they feel necessary at that point in time. Dancing, head bobbing and lyric mumbling is preferred lol.
What are some of your musical influences?
First and foremost Jay-Z is by far my biggest musical influence. His charisma and pension for saying what needs to be said is uncanny.
Kanye is a close second because he just doesn’t back down! He’ll put everything into whatever he does and I go through that everyday. Kanye and I share the same birthday ( June 8 ) so I feel we may both be tainted or blessed in some weird way lol.
