C.Y.P.H.E.R Magazines D.D Taylor sat down with Artist ST1Only during JSPs weekly Swagg Saturdays Open Mic



D.D Taylor- Hey there everyone this is D.D Taylor of C.Y.P.H.E.R Magazine and I caught up with up and coming artist "ST1only” hey hun let them know a little bit about yourself!



ST1Only- Well I’m a old but new artist so to speak i started out the hype man for golden smilez. Branched off did two album mix tapes with my brother specs that didn’t reach beyond our hood but was great material long story short when specs left the group i got to experiment on some things that i wanted to do .lol we come from Brooklyn so some things are off limits its about destroying your comp which we was good at not just the battle raps but we could make songs . i was experiencing things and jus plane growing up widening my taste in music and my prospective on things my name was originally stones from me being flashy but as i grew more conscious i took the s and t and made it st meaning straight truth then finding out there were more st’s out there i need to stand my own so i made it st1only !iv put out 2 mixtapes entitled real talk, digitized on that datpiff.com also in the streets .I was also blessed to be able to release a album on iTunes called digiworld with the help of pope ent , inzane ,illa , dark storm, and gnotes also fly boy inferno records .as we speak I’m finished with digitized part2 its different Simi hip hop lol.im currently still pushing digiworld looking to parnter with some one that sees the potential to make money



D.D Taylor- How old where u when u realized u wanted to pursue music professionally?



ST1Only- A year before I graduated high school you going to have to guess that , I remember smilez {now majesty} ask me if i rap when they were forming golden smilez i use to wright down poetry ,he told me to keep it up and by the time they got on i would be nice .so that was the first time i thought about it .but pursuing it professionally was when gs was working with foxy ‘s brother gavine .they had made this song children under the stairs it was bananas from that point on i knew i wanted to do this



D.D Taylor- Been at it a min i see...What kind of music do you do?



ST1Only- LoL ... yes my music is more conscious now real life experiences turned into music ,something that gets you thinking





D.D Taylor- What’s the difference between you and other M.Cs out today?


ST1Only- More substance i think. Not a lot of people or at least the new generation don’t care to much about lyrical content i found away to catch their attention by doing what they do and then actually saying something .don’t get me wrong the new generation is smart extremely smart so they listen to real talk they don’t want to here to much bangem hit up type stuff they want to party or relax have a good time or jus plane vibe



D.D Taylor- What do to you bring different to the table? as far as music goes?



ST1Only- My versatility I’m not scared to be personal even though everything i speak about doesn’t come from my life its jus life experience triggers thought for me like what if ? it could be any scenario with hip-hop that leaves you vulnerable to be attacked



D.D Taylor- Which artist can u say influenced your music?



ST1Only- Nas of course ,concepts ,thought ,message.



D.D Taylor- I ask every artist this where do you see yourself in 5years in the entertainment industry?



ST1Only- I would like to be helping someone else live there dream doing artist development teaching all i've learned .I would like to think i will be able to establish some steady income by then . If not who knows I’m a different kind of dude so I’m satisfied with just life I’ve seen and had a lot so my enjoyment comes from giving to others you know what i mean ...so we will see im working at this being something lucrative .lol



D.D Taylor- Side from being a music artist.. do you do your own promo? do you have any other talents within the entertainment industry?



ST1Only- Yes that’s the exhausting part im doing everything myself aside from pringle management associated with av8 records he is helping me along the way but the majority is trial and era these dudes rap hip-hop and its sad at times nobody says oh he’s good i want to help they say give me 2 gs and ill show you what i know or introduce you to my man the majority of new artist pay for there position that’s the wak part i got 2 kids and bills that goes to them and then i invest in this!

ST (straight truth) grew up in Brooklyn, NY and was raised with his sisters and brothers in a single family religious household. He began his adventure into the music scene as a hype man for a group called Golden Smilez which was produced by Dr. Period, along with housing act such as Trigger the gambler, smooth the hustler, papoose and others. ST then started a group called Double V.I. with his brother, Specs. They recorded 2 CD’s that didn’t get the attention they deserved. So after his brother left the group ST started solo projects including his biggest project of all – becoming a father. This changed his outlook on life along with his style of music and began to experiment with harmonies and became focused on creating music through innovative technologies.

Today, ST is proud to announce the release of his latest single, “Love” which is off of his new CD, “Digiworld”. This CD was produced by inzane,p.o.p.e ent , darkstorm productions . Some might say that this song originally was more sex orientated. Now it is ‘love’. This single is about how love makes you feel and how it effects what you do and say. Love was there when the world began. You need love to survive and you can’t survive without love. The introduction is very nice. His voice has an echo effect that really is beautiful. Of course, the voice is very sexy. It is a perfect combination of vocals with a fantasy ‘space’ type music in the back ground. The body of the song is very nicely done with deep vocals, and has a great melody to it.

ST has a wonderful delivery system for his music. Every song captures your attention from the very first note. His songs are arranged beautifully, performed beautifully and gets a wonderful reaction from his audience. He is versatile in is styles. One song may be deep with thought provoking lyrics and another song can be more upbeat which you would love to dance to.

We had a chance to sit down with ST Peep this:

What’s the first thing you would say to someone when they ask you to describe yourself as an artist?
Original!

How long have you been in the industry?
I have been around the industry for ten years .this is the first year i was able to put something out to the masses instead of looking for a deal. i fortunate to be around a lot of platinum selling artist i learn from any situation . i started hype man as the bio mention the i was also around sunsee from onyx .i was at studio sessions and videos i even meet jam master jay one time threw sunny on the evil streets shoot he was a very cool brother he embraced everybody even if he didn’t know u so that was a cool experience for me . also i use to watch dr period make beets and just being around that i think gave me a ear for hits plus my natural love for music so to say all that i learned from everything and use it to be me .

Do you have any projects out now?
Yes i have a album called”digiworld” in all istores [itunes,rhaposdy,zunenet,etc...]also a free mixtape on datpiff.com /st1only intitiled digitized

What inspires your music?
Life, new artist …

What artists in the industry inspire you the most today?
Nas, damian marley,bob , drake, kayne west ,mossdeff, neka, kid kudi ,akon, tpain ,these artist give me the encouragement to do what i do because i actually started before all of them or at the same time probably actually during the time of tpain and akon, but because of my position nobody knows this so i wanted to put that out there .

Why is that?
I answer most of it but these artist always stretch the envelope and are not scared to experiment and i think with music you should always try to do something different in order to make you a more well rounded artist.

What makes you different from other artist today?
My originality i am not scared to touch subjects most artist would not ,and i don’t have to do a song just for the club, i can but i rather make u think with the song something that makes the content last and rememberable as far as what i was talking about . in my new music you wont ever catch me cursing and the content will always be thought provoking or has some type of positive message i think artist except for the ones i mention forgot about that, there are people listening to music that maybe you could inspire to do good rather than wrong an i am not always right but i try to be as much as i can .sometimes because i’m human i may revert back to negative thinking .and it can be heard in music but i always try to catch myself i will even scratch a song if its to negative, a lot of my music on the digiworld album is personal im actually talking to my self like on i gotta get it first verse im showing that this what i was taught and it could bring me to a very bad place if i don’t correct it .verse 2 speaks about changes in my life and remaining me and doing things that i love to do.crazy streets – speaks on me going from positive to,negative,to positive and how the things that i learned or that we all learn can be change with knowledge and make right choices,love -is a look into the ups and downs of love and how we may not always get what we want but we should still love.What do you want your future fans to know about you?

What do you want your future fans to know about you?
That im here to make good music and i will always try something different as long as its me .if i am comfortable with it and if it something that represents me st .but always expect the unexpected.
