What the science about
the your name?
The name Solseekers is
sort of a play on words. "sol" is the spanish word for sun, we changed sun to
son, and being seekers of Christ (the son) we decided to call ourselves
What motivated you to
get into this industry?
The motivation came from a
desire to see change, not only in music but in the way these kids are growing
up these days, and what better way to do that then speaking the gospel through
What was your first
The first thing we ever
recorded together was a tape called left behind", which is where we want it to
stay, being that it's pretty old sounding.
What was your favorite
single/recording you did?
My pick would be a new
song we just finished called quicksand", look for that on our new release
entitled "people watching" (plug)
What should we expect
from you in the future?
A better record than our
What instruments do you
MPC 2000, and the MPC 2000
xl. We are trying to see if we can try to get some live instruments for future
projects, but for now it's that good ol' mpc.
How would you classify
your style as an artist?
It's just good ol' fashion
hip hop. I don't think you can really classify us as like west coast rap or
anything like that because we just are who we are.
What artist(s) have you
not worked with, but would like to?
We would like to do some
stuff with jurny big, b-twice, pigeon, nísync (just kidding), sup, and the
list goes on and on.
Growing up, who do you
think was a few of your biggest musical influences?
For me it wasn't so much
the music that got me going, it was the fact that urban cats created something
that they called here
Own.the whole culture is
amazing. As for sage, i know stevie wonder played a big part in his music
inspiration, along with a lot of other older music.
Where do you see
yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully if things go
according to plan, we will have saved enough money to begin to build a church
with future shock.
What do you feel is the
toughest part of the music industry?
I think the toughest part
of the music industry is getting in. It seems that the business is sort of
backwards, the people who don't seem to have very much talent get in faster
than the one's who are very talented. Not saying that everyone in the biz is
wack, but we all know that there are more wack artists than fresh one's.
What would the ultimate
reward for you be?
On earth: to be able to
start the church and give these kids an alternate route. After that: heaven
What message are you
trying to get across to fans?
Our whole purpose is to
let people know about Jesus Christ, that better way to do that than through
What is your favorite
Do your friends and
look at you differently now?
I don't think they do, we
are the same ol' dudes we've always been.
If someone were to look
in your cd player or tape player right now what would be in it?
backstreet boys (did i
just type that out loud, ha ha), for real though, right now Iím bumpin some
p.o.d, and sage is probably bumpin some incubus.
Personally what does
hip hop mean to you?
It doesn't really mean a
whole lot to me, i just really enjoy the culture, and really enjoy the
creativity in every element.
Who do you feel is your
biggest influence and why?
Redbonz of future shock
was my biggest influence. The example he set is what lead me to the lord.
How do you feel your
music will effect its listeners?
Only God knows how it will
If you could change one
thing in world, what would it be?
What would you like to
say to all the new artists in the game?
Keep your priorities
straight and make sure God's first.
