LuvPlxto talks about his challenges and accomplishements

Ahh it’s Thursday and we have a brand-new addition to our blog, LuvPlxto! The NY based hip hop artist has been around on the music market for about 5 years now and he wants to share some of his learnings and insight with us. Without further ado, let’s get to it!

What is your musical background? How did you get into music?

I think I originally got into music because of how frequently listened to it was in my household. My mom and Dad would always play Jazz and R&B and that’s how I grew into loving music starting to make my own around 2017.

What are your biggest motivations?

I think my motivation is definitely my family they have always been supportive of me, and they just give me the confidence to keep going.

Tell me how you have been developing your music this far

It definitely did take me a while to develop to what my style is now but honestly it took a lot of experimenting. When I first started rapping back in 2017, I would use way too much autotune and I didn’t have a microphone so I would rap into my iPhone. Then later on I started to develop a little setup in my room and tried going into songs with harder 808s and tried rapping like that, but I felt like it didn’t fit me. Eventually I developed my own home studio. I started mixing my own songs and doing more of a melodic style which I have been improving on ever since.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m not really working on anything currently, but I just dropped my album SoundCloud called N.E on May 6th so be sure to check that out. How do you know when a song is finished?

I feel like I know a song is finished when I feel satisfied with the product, and it feels like something I might listen to.

What is the biggest challenge of being an artist?

The biggest challenge as an artist personally for me was writer’s block. It can definitely get annoying but believe it or not going outside definitely helps with it. What is your biggest accomplishment in your career this far?

My biggest accomplishment in my career is definitely the amount of improvement I’ve had over the course of the years developing my sound. A personal accomplishment I’ve had is I’m able to love myself for who I am.

Anything you would like to tell your fans?

Advice that I would have for anyone that’s reading or anyone that may be thinking about getting into music is just do it. Whether you make money off it or not if it is something you love, just do it. If you are willing to put in the work and the hours, then I say go for it. I believe everyone has a talent It’s just whether you choose to embrace it or not.

Thank you very much for being on 24 Carat Sounds, LuvPlxto! We wish you all the best on your musical journey, and we hope to see you back here soon!
