Thanks for your time. How did you decide to become an artist?
TATUM: I started rappin when I was in the 2nd grade and ever since then its just been in my blood hip hop is something that's a part of my life and no matter how much I try to stop I can't its my drug its my Addiction. I feel as if I have a story to tell and in my opinion there's no better way to express what I've been through to the world other than song. so I decided to become an artist to showcase the gift that God gave me. and hopefully Through my Music and my words I will be able to motivate somebody do better. Or at least something that’s easy to relate to.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
all the time to play around 50-60 shows the year maybe.. I’ve been told my live show is nuts I love the feelingi very when I’m on that stage I literally feed of the crowd energy I love man.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
Now the trooper is the shooter/ he’s killing our kids so in other words he’s killing our future…”LONG WAY TO GO”
What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?
Currently 'm working on my first album with a distro deal I have through Island Def Jam coming out this fall called PEN, PAD AND HEADPHONES this album is going to open eyes in my opinion I only use features from local people to showcase their talents as well in the past I have done a mixtape and a Album named ”A Long Time Coming” wick I put out independently.
Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I don't know I have a distro deal but I don't know if i would want a full deal with a major I like being in Control of my sound and image so It have to fit all that criteria before I would decide to sign for major
