Interview Audio



Dubcnn: Alright, Javon with Dubcnn.com and I have the pleasure of chopping it up withÖonce again, Six Reasons. Whatís up man? How have you been?

Six Reasons: Man, Iíve been 100 daddy-o. I ainít got no complaints. And even if I did have them, nobody would listen.


Dubcnn: Speaking of listening, I wanted to kind of go right into it. I followÖIím friends with you on Facebook and I know youíve been prepping the mixtape, 80ís Baby for a little bit. You have the single Michael Myers that has been gaining some momentum. Talk about how people are catching onto it and how that makes up feel as an artist.

Six Reasons: It makes me feel great man. The song is still in itís very early stagesÖjust a few weeks old and itís catching on. The streets caught onto it then the DJs and now radio is starting to catch onto it. But I guess when you have something you really got something soÖI canít sit here and just toot my own horn because when you got something then you got something.


Dubcnn: Speaking of that real quickÖand I want to come back to it, but when you have a collection of songs and you are trying to pick that oneÖhow do you go about picking that one song to set the tone for what you have coming? Is it difficult? Is it you or do you have a team of folks? How do you whittle it down to pick that one song?

Six Reasons: Well, I have a brain trust. Me and my collective conglomerate and my team sit down but at the end of the day I go with my gut feeling. Because not all of the time your teamÖfor the most part Iíve been lucky. Me and my team and my producers are usually 100% on one accord but even if we werenít I would go with my gut. So at the end of the day itís me. Itís my sound and my image. I go with my gut, which they allow me to do. But Iím intelligent with this sh*t. It all depends on what weíre looking for. Everything is research. With Michael Myers, putting that track together and deciding what delivery and what angle and what pocket I would use and what kind of hook to put on thereÖall of that came from research of whatís going on in the clubs and what the younger generation responds to and what will the generation that was before them respect.

I didnít want to just make something just because thatís what everybody was doing. I feel like somebody has to bridge the gap between the past generation and the new generation because the previous generation doesnít even respect the new generationís choice of music, dress, clothing, food or none of that. They donít respect the young generation at all for various reasons and vice versa. So putting together a song like thatÖI had to do it where it bridged the gap and not necessarily fit into a niche of what was going on. You know what Iím saying? It was just tons of research of what me and my producers have. We go in and have a brain trust and like I say, not all the time everybody in the brain trust is goní ride with you but at the end of the day I donít give a f@#k. Itís my sh*t.

*laughs*

Six Reasons: Thatís just real. You canít tell me sh*t. You donít even go to clubs so how the f@#k would you know a club record. When was the last time you went and dropped your ass? This ainít for you. If you donít pop your ass then shut up. It ainít for you. If you liked it, I wouldnít put it out because that means the wrong motherfu@#ers are liking it. This is for people that are shaking they ass, getting drunk and drinking Grey Goose with no chaser, speediní home, haviní sex with a random person and throwing the empty condom wrapper out of the window on the freeway.

*laughs*

Six Reasons: And if that ainít you then sit down and shut up.

*laughs*


Dubcnn: I like that. Now you mentioned doing research so when you are thinking of radio stationsÖobviously Power 106 has been starting to play the song and you have folks in Bakersfield playing the songÖwhen you think about different regionsÖbecause sometimes from city to city the feel or a song may catch on in a particular city when it is just miles that separate them. Who is your target? Is it Cali? Is it Down South? Is it everything West of the Mississippi? Who is Six Reasonsí target audience?

Six Reasons: East Coast, West Coast, Down South, Up North, from 2-92, blind, crippled and crazy. From women to animals to men.

*laughs*


Dubcnn: Got you. Now, 80ís Baby is the mixtape and presented by DJ Skee. What can people expect from it and really, in terms of legs of a project how long do you plan on pushing this to continue to get the word out there about yourself?

Six Reasons: Well, I never stop recording music so I can put out a new video, single, viral piece everyday if I choose to, you know. At this point, like I said, we are in the early stages of Michael Myers and literally just weeks old and itís catching on so I want to do everything I can to give it the chance and a light of day for everybody to really start hearing it abroad. What I mean by abroad, I ainít talking about Baton Rouge or Memphis. Iím talking about Germany, Rio de Janeiro and just really push the record because itís a good record. Whether you have a good record right off the bat or it just needs momentum, you just have to give it a chance. It has to have a chance so I feel like right now thatís my only focus.

80ís Baby is practically doneÖas we speak I can press play and you will hear music. I was just sitting here making a brand new song from scratch with my producer, Starlab as we speak. So 80ís Baby is finished but it is never finished until it is in your CD player or your iPod. Iím constantly working and by all intents and purposes itís done but right now, since Michael Myers is catching the lightÖand it looks like it could be the one because itís respected. Itís a hot song. Like I said, when you got one you got one. So Iím just giving everybody an opportunity that hasnít heard itÖand we havenít even shot the video yet. So when Iím saying the song is early and catching on early, itís really just catching on. We donít shoot the video for another three weeks or something like that, you know what I mean? So I just want to give everybody an opportunity to catch onto Michael Myers and vibe with that. In the meantime and between time Iím doing shows and sh*tÖI have fans that canít fly from Seattle to California or canít fly from Atlanta to Texas or whatever. So I usually videotape every show that I have and put it online for the fans could not make it there.

I might be in their city and they donít have the $40 that night but itís not their fault. So I usually put all my concerts up online. Which we are doing right now with my last two or three concerts and tying it back to Michael Myers and garnering interest from the younger crowd and still being respected from the people that know what this music sh*t was built on.


Dubcnn: Thatís whatís up. So let people know how they can stay in touch with whatís going on with Six Reasons. You know Dubcnn is going to continue to support you so let them know how to keep in touch with you man.

Six Reasons: You can hit me up on your favorite social site. All you gotta do is type in Six Reasons. Check my personal YouTube channel, 6reasons.com, Twitter. Just Six Reasons everything man. Just go to 6reasons.com and all my information is there. I stay dumping new content, free clothes, free merchandise, free music on my site so you can always go there to find out where Iím at and whatís going on and who Iím mad at.
