Khalil Newton conducted this interview with Alec Baldwin, a new up and coming Artist from Georgia who is finally following his passion as a singer and rapper. Alex's favorite musician is the hip-hop icon Lil Wayne and he has been into his music ever since he was 8. Alex never really took it upon himself to pursue his music dream until after he graduated high school. He is now making music with another talented guy from his high school and attempting to grow his career.
KN: I heard you used to sing and rap in your free time during your days in high school but, what does it mean to you that you're finally taking action and trying to make a name for yourself in the music industry?
AB: It means a lot because in high school I always dreamed about making music but never had the tools necessary to do so, but once I got out of high school I was able to share what was on my mind.
KN: What are some things that you are doing to promote your music and your name?
AB: I've been teaming up with other singers and rappers to attract some of their fan base and also I've been putting my music on music streaming apps like Soundcloud and Youtube.
KN: who would be some people you'd like to collaborate with to make a song?
AB: Some people I'd like to collaborate with would be singers like Maxwell, Eric Benet, and of course Lil Wayne.
KN: Since Lil Wayne is such an influence on you, what would be your favorite song from him? Who else have you been inspired by in the music industry?
AB: That's definately a tough question, I can't single out one song but I do have favorite album called Free Weezy Album also known as "FWA". And growing up I've always been enthused by singer, comedian, and actor Jamie Foxx.
KN: What's the reason for why you didn't get involved with music earlier in your life?
AB: Probably just because I never had the tools and time to do so because I was always involved with baseball.
KN: What's next that you're putting out for the world to here?
AB: I have a new single called The Last Time that's being released next week.
