PeacefulPinder is an artist from Seattle with a lot to prove. His goal? To become what he’s meant to be. We got a chance to talk with him and got to know more about the man behind the music. Get to know more about him below:
Where you from?
Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, lived in LA for a couple years at the start of my career and just moved back to my hometown.
How did you get your start in music?
I started songwriting after years of writing poetry, I learned about my talent for freestyling rapping in general at parties in high school.
How long have you been making it?
I have only been writing music for about a year and a half, I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface of my full potential.
Who are your influences?
Nas has always been my favorite artist. Logic and J.Cole are huge inspirations nowadays and people like Joey Bada$$ and NF.
What motivates you?
Pain. Plain and simple I was put through hell because of my parents choices and substance abuse, I am here to spread healing through music to youth and anybody who deals with adversity on their lives. Which at the end of the day we all do in some shape or form.
What are you currently working on?
Currently working on putting out my Debut Project “206 n Beyond” a 10 track EP that represents me becoming a man and really standing up for and taking action behind what I believe in.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Selling out Madison Square Garden in New York. Constantly on tour internationally and spreading PeaceGang vibes across the world.
What is your opinion on the current hiphop scene?
Not a lot of time and effort into the music nowadays, the Mona Lisa took 20 years. Nothing is by accident great timeless pieces of art take a great time and energy investment. I think nowadays artists are brand building to monetize and employ eccentric marketing techniques that are not understood by the general public. no such thing as bad P.R!
Anything else you would like to say?
Shout out to everybody supporting the PeaceGang movement, Peace, love and Unity to everybody lets come together and make the world a happier more positive place.
