#TeamFlatRadioExclusive Q&A with @BOBBICOOL
January 3, 2014Uncategorized
3 years ago when we first started TeamFlatRadio, we had recently began reaching out to indie artist via twitter. After days and days of no replies, we got a tweet from @BOBBICOOL (follow him). Looked into his music and it defined Ga music to a T. After meeting him, I understood why his name was Bobbi Cool. We haven’t to this day, met a dude more cooler than cool himself. Once again, I don’t want to deprive you all from great music from great people, here’s our Q&A with Bobbi Cool.
TFR: What’s going on fam For the people that don’t know let them know who you are.
COOL: HELLO WORLD I AM BOBBI COOL aka BOBBI COOL YOU’S A FOOL aka STRONG MIDNIGHT JONES aka FLOW JACKSON. I HAIL FROM THE SOUTH (ENTIRELY), 85 NORTHSIDE OF ATLANTA TO BE EXACT!
TFR: How long have you been making music ?
COOL: IVE BEEN RAPPING AND FREESTYLING SINCE 2001 BUT I BEGAN TO MASTER MY CRAFT AND MAKE MUSIC IN 2004 WHILE ENROLLED AT AUBURN UNIVERSITY. ALL TOGETHER MAKES 13 YEARS.
TFR: What is your inspiration behind your music?
COOL: LIFE IS MY INSPIRATION. THE EXPERIENCES I’VE HAD AND OBSTACLES I’VE OVERCAME ALONG WITH THE SACRIFICES I MADE TO PUT MYSELF IN A BETTER POSITIVE POSITION.
TFR: How did you know that making music would be your way out?
COOL: MUSIC WAS NEVER “A WAY OUT” SO TO SPEAK, GRADUATING COLLEGE WAS MY WAY OUT. MUSIC BEGAN AS A NEIGHBORHOOD THING, RAPPIN WITH NEIGHBORHOOD FRIENDS AND OFF LUNCH TABLE BEATS AND COMING OFF THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD WITH FLOWS. I TOOK A GOOD LIKING TO IT AND DEDICATED MY TIME TO IT TO BE THE BEST COOL I CAN BE AND THATS HOW I GOT MY COOLPOINTS.
TFR: How has your popularity increased over the years and how have you handled those situations?
COOL: MY POPULARITY IS STILL GROWING BECAUSE MANY PEOPLE ARE STILL HEARING ME FOR THE FIRST TIME BUT AS FAR AS BEING RESPECTED AND ACKNOWLEDGED, MY DEMEANOR GETS ALL THE CREDIT. THEY DONT CALL ME COOL FOR NOTHING.
TFR: What was your reaction when you started to get recognized for all of the hard work that you put into your music?
COOL: MY REACTION WASN’T TOO SHOCKING BECAUSE I AM A FIRM BELIEVER IN “HARD WORK PAYS OFF” AND WHEN RECOGNITION IS GIVEN I FEEL THAT IT IS ACCOLADES FOR THE HARD WORK THAT I PUT IN. I APPRECIATE ALL RECOGNITION AND ACCEPT ALL CRITICISM WITH POSITIVE RESULTS.
TFR: For the indie artist trying to “make it” into the music industry what are some key points that helped you get to this point in your career?
COOL: SOME KEY POINTS ARE
1. SACRIFICE – IF YOU WANT ANYTHING AS BAD AS YOU SAY YOU WANT IT, YOU WILL DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO GET IT!
2. PERSEVERANCE – THE LONG HAUL! HOW LONG CAN YOU SACRIFICE UNTIL YOU GET WHAT IT IS YOU ARE STRIVING FOR?
3. FAITH – YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IN GOD AND YOURSELF. YOURSELF AND GOD ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN YOU.
