Explain who you are for those who don’t know
Francis Write, a Rap and R&B artist.
How did you come up with your name?
Saint Francis Xavier, S.J., was a missionary, born in Javier, Kingdom of Navarre, and a co-founder of the Society of Jesus.
Where are you from?
Whats it like growing up where your from?
It’s an everyday struggle being from the city I’m from, there a lot of disguises of palm trees and sun, and just the name itself seems like a paradise but it’s not always what people picture the city of Riverside to be. A lot of the same people I grew up with are locked up from gang banging but at the same time a lot of us are talented and there is a gold mine of talent waiting to blow up like any of these other cities running the hip hop game right now. I’m trying to bring my city together and be the first to put us on the map with this music because no else has succeeded.
How did you get into music?
Listening to my pops music and producing growing up in Oakland he listened to every type of music there was and it just was something that took ahold of me, and I wanted to be the next great musician hearing that stuff.
What makes you different than other artists?
My work ethic, my substance, and my execution. You can’t get behind a microphone in the booth and expect to be the best if you don’t got no confidence or truth behind what you’re talking about. Thats the difference between good and great, and I’m trying to be great.
What are you currently working on?
Currently, I have a project called ‘How You Make It’ I’m planning on dropping around the end of summer, no official release date yet, but singles are ready.
