We recently talked with upcoming Detroit artist Major-D-Star.
Check out our Q&A with him below.
Explain who you are for those who may not know
It’s M.A.J.O.R. D-Star, the next recording artist breaking into the mainstream from Detroit. Here to bring Motown back one step at a time.
How did you get into music?
I’ve been into music since a youngin. With inspirations from nothing but the greats, the first time I tried to rap verbally, I just felt a spark. It gave me a feeling nothing else ever did before. From there, I wrote my first raps and by the time I got into the recording, I knew it was for me. I felt like I had the sound and people were telling me that I had the swag and that I was going to be a star all my life. But most of all, I loved to share my life story. I’ve always dreamed big and I knew that if I was going to do it for the long run and shoot for the top like a shooting star, I had to do it right. I had to be different, creative and just be myself, and that was MAJOR.
Who are your influences?
My biggest influences musically are Biggie & Jay-Z.
What motivates you to get up and grind?
Every time I hear this question I think I’m going to have to answer it the same! Everything really! My family, my fans/supporters, haters/doubters but overall, my passion for music. Without music I’m nothing.
What are you working on?
Currently I’m working on my next mixtape project for my city entitled, “Motown Sound” dropping sooner than you think! First quarter, 2017.
Whats next for you?
Nothing but the top.
Anything you would like to say to your fans?
THANK YOU & MAJOR SALUTE! You can be anything that you wanna be!
