"Real Right - What's Real Is Always Right"

From a young age we are taught to follow our dreams and listen to our hearts but what happens when your heart is leading you down a path that doesn’t match your reality?

In the case of Real Right you work hard to care for your family but you never turn your back on your dreams. Staying focused and dedicated to the feeling that brought him back to music when times were tough is exactly what has lead him to an amazing partnership with CW-One Entertainment LLC and unlimited possibilities.

Real Right has used his struggle to motivate a positive change in his life and to inspire music that people can relate to. Filled with an enthusiasm that can’t be broken, he is ready to take the world by storm with his electrifying hits!

Real Right talks with Yo! Raps about how his remained positive during hard times and the importance of using the energy of his haters.

You came from a rather tough environment, how did you remain positive with so much adversity around you?

It wasn't easy at all, after seeing my pops get locked up at a young age and watching my mother struggle to provide for me and my brothers, it was very hard to stay positive, but no one’s perfect, I slipped up a few times and did the wrong things but for the right reasons. If it weren't for my grandparents always helping out and me just being able to observe my mother turn most of our negatives into positives, I would probably be in jail or dead from roaming the streets. I thank my mother and grandparents for showing me right from wrong at an early age.

In what ways did music help you cope with your struggles?

Doing music felt like a shield for the moment, even though I still had to deal with my everyday problems, struggles, whatever I had to deal with; music was my escape route. It allowed me to express myself the way I wanted to with emotion, pain, love, anger, it really didn't matter at the moment, I was able to vent and get a lot of that weight off my shoulders.

What did you learn from your upbringing that has helped you navigate the music business?

I was told that, it's better to have tried and fail then to have not tried at all. Because you can learn from your mistakes and do it again and again until you get it right. I was also told to watch your enemy's close and your friends even closer. So with that being said, I know for a fact that this music business can be shady and it have its ups and its downs but its all how you move in the game, you have to play the game and not let the game play you.

How does being a father encourage your music if at all?

If I go hard already, my kids encourage me to go harder and really give it my all, even though I don't make the type of music for their age. But it’s what I teach them, not to ever give up and if you want to be the best, you have to work 2 times harder than everyone else.

You have a song called "For The Haterz", tell us why it was important for you to address your doubters?

It was important for me to address my doubters in my song "For The Haterz" to let them know that I am aware of all the down talk and negatives that they send my way and say behind my back. It's all hate and envy at the same time because they are not moving and they see me not only doing something, but progressing while I'm doing it! But I'm cool with it because all that tells me is that I'm doing something right and they want to be where I'm at. So hate on haters.

It seems that you gain motivation from nonbelievers, what makes that possible for you?

First off, I would love to turn every nonbeliever into a believer and the only way to accomplish that is to work harder, if they don't like my music they will respect my grind. I also expect people to put roadblocks, exits and bumps in my way while I'm on the road to success; I see it as just another obstacle to get around.

In your opinion what are the characteristics of a successful rap artist?

To me, some of the characteristics that you must to have to be a successful rap artist are that you must have the drive to go hard because there are a million other people that want to be rappers. You have to be 100% dedicated to it, you have to have self-motivation because at the end of the day it’s your career and you have to be willing to sacrifice, whether it's time, money, sleep, being away from your family, etc. If you really want to be successful as a rap artist you have to be able to give up some things for the moment so that you can enjoy it later on in the future.

There was a time when music wasn't a priority for you, tell us what brought you back?

What brought me back to the game was the hunger and passion that I have for music. When I stopped for a while to just work and make money to provide for my family, it was ok but I realized that there was a part of me missing and I wasn't complete. At that moment that's when I knew that not only did I love doing music but also it was in me and was a part of my life.

How did it feel to r - The Urban Buzz Factor


"Real Right debut’s on Yo!Raps with peaking figures among hip hop vets!"

Among hip hop veterans such as Birdman, Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane, just to name a few; Bronx based rapper Real Right is stirring up major noise on the urban online magazine Yo Raps with impressive numbers for his single “Put It On.”

On the first day of his release, he has reached over 15,000 plays, literally... Let’s keep in mind when this song was placed in rotation- Wednesday at approximately 10am. Now take a look at the statistics for a second: by 5pm, the song skyrocketed to around 7,000 plays and climbed to 14,000 in just a short period of time. Figuratively speaking, a mathematician would even consider these stats as mind-boggling, which also continue to increase as time ensues. Leading a group of signed artists, Right has earned bragging ‘rights’ with a number one spot on the homepage of Yo Raps. Last time I checked, he seems to hold a steady lead and shows no sign of surrendering this victory.

Many say hip hop is currently in a state of devastation due to artists transforming and commercializing their artistry in order to fit the contemporary pop culture trend, while losing sight of true hip hop roots. Artists continue to gravitate towards this accepted standard and are imitating the sounds of main stream music. Conversely, Real Right may prove to be in a league of his own, without even conforming to the norms of the industry, yet his music appeals to a very broad audience. The fact he can overshadow a lineup of today’s greatest rappers, speaks volumes about his sheer tenacity in securing a position in the hip hop game.

Based on the results, Real Right has debunked the common stereotype of independent artists not being able to compete with those from major labels, many of whom have a firm financial backing. The anticipation builds as fans wait for Right to release his freshman album in the summer of 2013. Drake’s says it best in his new single, “Started from the bottom now we here!” Right can definitely concur with the songs underlying message, emerging from humble beginnings to paving a trail of success. He has yet to make his mark in history, nevertheless, be on the lookout for more of his music to hit the airwaves sooner than expected. - My Music, My Life Magazine

Bio

Real Right is a rapper born and raised in the Bronx, New York. During his development as a rap artist, he released his first mix-tape, "Definition Of A Soldier," in 2003. Due to the rush of his first release through Scotch Bonnet Records, and the lack of promotion, he left them within that same year. Real decided to take a long break from recording after many trials that preceded him in his personal life which included the death of his grandmother in 2003 and then his grandfather shortly after in 2004. After several years on pause from his music career, he resurrected in 2008 and began recording tracks with a local producer, J Paperz. In the same year, Real Right recorded his first single, "Money On My Mind", and went on to compete in many local showcases in New York City! After endless days of writing and hundreds of studio sessions, he released his second mix-tape, 1st Impression, in February of 2011. Often, nobody can predict the progress & magnitude of an artist, but with Real Right, there is no question that the future holds big things.
