Paranormal

The Kings Aces Magazine:
First off thank you for taking time out to chat with us over at the kings aces.

Paranormal:
No doubt. I sincerely appreciate the support and your interest in the tunes.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
So let the people know your name, what you do and where you're from.

Paranormal:
Paranormal. Corona, Queens representative. Its where I was born and raised.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
When was it that you first realized you wanted to do this profession?

Paranormal:
I fell in love with Hip Hop when i realized its power the first
time I heard "Da Mystery Of Chessboxin" from Wu Tang. Got to shout out
my uncle Juj for blessing me with the cassettes  I probably started
taking this serious around the age of 17, 18. First time I was
officially heard was on Sonz Of Gunz mixtape "The Real" Salute to y
cousin Maniac and John Figz for the put on and encouragement. Ever
since then, it was progress and profuse writing.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
How long have you been doing this?

Paranormal:
As of now, its been about a decade. 2 solo albums. A collaborative
effort with my comrades entitled, "Assembled At The Wizard Factory."
An EP with John Figz and Verbal Lexapro, "Manufactured Insanity." A
great deal of requested features from artists around the world which
I;m absolutely grateful for.

 

The Kings Aces Magazine:
Who are your influences? 

Paranormal:
Multitude of artists influenced me. Pharoahe Monch, El-P, Nas, Kool G Rap, Rakim, Public Enemy, Ill Bill, Wu Tang, Big Pun, Cypress Hill, too many to name. Even artists from other genres. I'm a big fan of punk and post punk. The Cure, Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains, Emily Frost, Warpaint, Savages. Even Trip Hop artists such as Kimberly Pacent and Portishead. I'm a heavy admirer of films as well. I can watch a movie and if it hits deep, it'll invoke songs.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What made you want to get into the business?

Paranormal:
i wouldn't necessarily say I'm officially in the business. Still independent and trying to get more exposure.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What are you thinking about when working on a beat or developing a album?

Paranormal:
Well, I co-produce mostly with my comrade Verbal Lexapro. I absolutely have no idea what buttons do what. But, I know when I discover a sample, I know what I have my head and my comrade assists in conveying it on the production boards. As for developing an album, I tend to go for the unexpected. The Project For Global Madness was concocted out of pain, confusion, a deep desire to seek answers to life, politics, because virtually everything in life is politically related. And of course, a dedication to a close friend and fellow artist, Kimberly Pacent. She was the missing link and sound I sought after for quite some time when this album was in early development.

 

The Kings Aces Magazine:
Tell us what do you think listeners will get out of your music? 

Paranormal:
The listeners will get a motley collage of my influences. Art,
film, honesty, a poetic fusion of sci fi, surrealism, and reality.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What is the most difficult thing you had to endure in life?

Paranormal:
The passing of Kimberly Pacent. Such talent and beauty. A deep
individual who succumbed to depression which led to suicide. Since
the, I don't take mental illness lightly.  I've had dark periods of my
life won't push anybody away when I can detect others who suffer as I
did.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What is the most difficult thing you had to endure in the music industry? 

Paranormal:
Personally, seeing how real talented artists don't get the shine
they deserve. I'm talking about dudes I look up to and artists I've
personally collaborated with getting brushed off because they don't
follow fucking trends. A great deal of bullshit is floating around and
dumbing down the youth. Hip Hop is supposed to be moving, educational,
uplifting, morale from hood tales, etc. Hip Hop is inherently
rebellious.

 

The Kings Aces Magazine:
How does it feel to  finally getting your break?

Paranormal:
I don't feel like I got my break. Still working on it. However,
I'm grateful for the supporters I have. Supporters, not followers.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
What do you hope to do with your music? 

Paranormal:
In all honesty, to provide for my loved ones who unconditionally
supported me when I had nothing. Connection with brothers and sisters
in humanity.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
If there was one thing about your career that you would change right now, what would that be?

Paranormal:
Personally I would like more exposure. The funds to convey my
visions into mroe videos. But, if I didn't go through what I've gone
through, I wouldn't have put out the music in the manner that its in.


The Kings Aces Magazine:
When everything is all said and done, what would you like your fans to say about you and what you brought to the table?

Paranormal:
That I'm an artist. Not boxed in and labeled.

The Kings Aces Magazine:
Come back and sit with us well thank you for taking the time to sit with us and we want to wish you much success through out your career. Hopefully you will come some time in the future and we can keep your loyal fans updated on your future endeavors.
