Getting to know “DeeWayne” from Walton County, Georgia Aka NotLaw…come a vacation, leave on probation.
Q. What got you into music and made you realize that it was your chosen path?
A. I always knew I had a gift when it came to poetry but I realized making music was the best way I knew how to express myself w/o having a direct conversation about myself.
Q. Tell us about your new music (Song/EP/Mixtape/Album)? And what’s the story behind it?
A. ToBeHonest is the new single out right now! The story behind it is deep but I feel the best way to explain what it means is listen to the verse.
Q. What makes your music unique? How would you describe it? (genres/sub-genres)
A. The type of music I make is Rap/HipHop but reality music b/c I don’t just make anything that sounds good to the ear. I test the waters and push the envelope. I rarely use adlibs b/c I want the listener to understand the message in every song they listen to.
Q. Who are your biggest music influences? And any particular artist/band you would like to collaborate with in the future?
A. Biggest music influence would definitely have to be Lil Wayne as well as Young Thug. I often hear T.I., as well as Drake. I would love to be able to collaborate with Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Wayne…the real heavyweights of this industry.
Q. How long have you been in the music industry?
A. I have been making music since I was 13 seriously ( 28 now ) but I have been taking my music to the next level by really investing a bag behind myself.
Q. Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of? (awards, projects or public performances etc.
A. Best musical memory for me would have to be in 2015 when I destroyed the stage @ Club Opera in ATL with my hit single at the time “ Dope Man “. Crowd went bananas!
Q. How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?
A. I still work a 9 to 5 and not ashamed of it at all. I know I’m right where I suppose to be at this point in my career.
Q. What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?
A. Stay consistent and relevant. Always!
Q. If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?
A. The wait for greatness is upon us! Sit back and enjoy the show!
Q. What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?
