Name: Curtis Williams of Two-9
I’ve been rapping since: I was 13 years old. I used to play ball heavy and skateboard then I branched out into rapping.
My style or skills have been compared to: From a rap perspective, people have compared me to Wiz Khalifa or Curren$y. In regards to my fashion style, I think I have my own lane. I don’t intend to really dress like anyone.
My standout records or moments have been: “Scottie 2 Hottie” got a lot of people hip to the movement. Going down to SXSW and performing down there was a big thing. The whole experience was really dope. We did a couple dope visuals and thats what sold a lot of people on our movement. “Two-9 Forever,” was also a big moment for our movement. I also opened for A$AP Rocky which was a great experience as well.
I’m gonna change the game by: Making a quality product each time out. I feel like a lot of stuff is hyped, but the product doesn’t live up to the hype. Some people drop albums and they dont even feel like albums. I feel like if you are a mainstream artist you should be making music up to a certain quality. I plan to deliver. I am trying to make big music. I want to make Billboard singles. I want to be the greatest. Underground music is cool and I like it a lot, but when you get into a lot of the mainstream stuff when people get on, I feel like the music needs to be stepped up.
I’d like to work with: I would love to work with the Justice League, they are some of my favorite producers. I want to work with Pusha T on the production side, I dont even need to rap on that one. Flatbush Zombies and Curren$y would be cool also.
My goal in hip hop is: For people to go back to having a good time. I want people to be happy and enjoy the music. If we beef, lets not take it outside the music. That conflict is not needed. We are artists. People are taking it away from the music, I want to bring the attention fully back to the music.
I’m gonna be the next: Mogul. Clothing lines, platinum records, all that cool shit.
