We had an amazing experience speaking to a diverse and talented rapper who creates lyrical magic in three different languages. We spoke to Artur D about his music and his journey to where he is at now with his craft. We explored many great things concerning the artist including his personal and professional struggles to bring his music to the masses. Here is his story.

Isaac: It’s an amazing time to be a DIY artist/performer/band/musician. What do you feel you contribute musically to the Indie Music Culture?

Artur: A different outlook on things and my unstoppable energy to keep striving. My background, the things that I've been through differ from the experiences that others made and so I hope to offer my listeners a new perspective the way others show me a new facet so that the big picture emerges. In these special times, it is very important to keep going and to never give up. This is also the way we assign value to the things we do and show what we really stand for. Thinking about the people in Japan (last year), I want to encourage every soul to keep going. Life is worth it to fall and to get up again, it is worth the struggle and the pain b/c it is the greatest gift of all.

Isaac: If you had an opportunity to sign with a major label, would you sign now knowing you may have to give up some of what you have built up over the years about you in the process?

Artur: If it would help me to spread my message, to reach a lot more people out there and to grow, to become more, then I would sign. If it would limit me to anything less, silence or deform my message into something that I don't really stand for, then I wouldn't. Success isn't measured by numbers; it's about the purpose and the fulfillment of a task. The truth is a calling that lives in all of us, just like love does.

Isaac: I remembered Simon Cowell from American Idol talking about the “it” Factor that makes a musician/band stand out. What do you think is your “it” factor that makes you stand out from others in the music business?

Artur: The fact that I will not try to step into another man’s footprints or measure myself by somebody's standards. This includes that I won't change myself in order to be received as somebody who I am not. I am not a prodigy or a product. I am not here to sell something but to reach those who listen, to inspire, to motivate, to open people’s hearts and minds.

Isaac: Name one important element that will make you stand out from the rest of the musicians/artists in the music industry?

Artur: If nothing else, then my ability to rap in three different languages. And maturity, you won't hear in my new songs any cursing or dissing. I am not trying to give anybody that feeling that I would be better than them, because I'm not. I don't look down at people; I want to make people feel good.

Isaac: Do you feel you have given it your best when pursuing your musical dreams so far? Why or why not?

Artur: I always do at the given time, in that moment. There are many other things going on in my life and I assign the required focus to each aspect at the right time, or I try at least. I am not perfect.

Isaac: Who do you look up to for your own influences and why?

Artur: In the very beginning, I was listening to KRS one, to Pac, to Busta and many others. I still listen here and there to other people, but I don't have any idols. I am a grown man now and I want to keep growing, to get better with the time like wine and to become more.

Isaac: Do you feel that Indie music gets the respect it deserves? Why or why not?

Artur: It doesn't. I think the reason for that are the majors that perceive music in their own way. They turned artistic expression into a sales pitch, into a product. The buy into a specific range of images and push what they can fit into their mold. Anything else isn't marketable and falls away. In Hip-Hop, in the beginning (that's how it seems to me); it was a great opportunity for people who didn't have power, for the man on the street to be heard. The point is that one needs to have a voice and to shine some light on things that need to be addressed. Today, if you don't talk about consumption, carelessness, don't advertise booze or cars while being a "rebel" of some sort that reached the top and achieved a high status the fast way, you aren't what they are looking for.
Isaac: If you could change one thing about the music business, what would it be and why?

Artur: The money flow, the artificially generated sales of CDs. When a major business company releases the CD of an artist that they invested in heavily, they give money to their interns, send them in the first few weeks to the stores and tell them to buy this artists CD. They pay the radio DJs; they pay the magazines, and so on. It is a business, 90% is business, and 10% is music. They generate a buzz. They create numbers and the rest of the population goes with the flow. What would happen if money would start to - juniorscave.com

Artur is an independent rapper/producer from Lodz/Poland. He moved in 1987 to Germany when the communistic regime in Poland at that time decided that his father who left the country in 1984 to start a better life for the four of them in Germany was considered a traitor of the system and announced therefore that they have 24 hours to leave Poland. He started to write lyrics in 1996, when he was denied entry into a club because of his Polish passport and begun to make beats 2 years later. In 2004 he relocated to Chicago. His music has a positive message. It is important to Artur to express himself through his music and to offer people a better outlook on life, to address injustice and to spread the truth.
