What it do my dude?
What’s up with you fam. Just out here trying to make it happen.
In your name, what does B.U.N.N.S. stand for?
B.U.N.N.S. comes from the things I’ve been through in my life. It stands for Brother Under Negative Nonsense and Stress. It’s about things I’ve seen and done. This music is an outlet for me. That’s why you can hear the passion and pain in my voice.
What area are you from?
I was born in Boston, but I’ve spent most of my life in North Carolina. I’m a country boy at heart, but the city is in my veins. I’ve been in the DMV for a brick, though. I’m trying to make it where I’m at.
How would you describe your sound?
I’m the Scottie Pipen of this sh*t. I’m well rounded. I don’t just do Hip Hop, I also write music for all genres. That’s the gift that GOD gave me.
I heard some of your music and I see you have some heat. How important is beat selection?
Beats tell me what the music is going to be. It tells me what the hooks going to be and what the bars are going to be. Everything starts with the beat. The beat is the foundation. You have to have a good beat to make a good song.
Tell readers about your new single “Fade Away”.
I came up with that with my man ADON at Heroin Studios. We smoked out and cooked up something special. It comes from something my Grandma used to always tell me, “Never let your dreams fade away”. No matter what, you are the only person that can stop your dreams. I’ve been pushing ever since.
With so many Artists in the business, what’s your plan to standout?
Be different. Different sells. Different catches eyes. People see me and it’s like a breath of fresh air. I’m persistent. I keep feeding people with quality music. I’ve already put out 6 Mixtapes.
What does success in your music mean to you?
Success in my music means food on the table. It’s being able to leave a legacy for my kids. I want that Jordan legacy for my music… and that money too.
What can people expect to see at one of your shows?
Nothing but energy. That real raw Hip Hop.
Any new music?
I just dropped a new song called "Hip Hop is Back" earlier this month. I have a lot of new music on my Reverbnation page. Make sure you check the music out. It’s some good sh*t.
Do you have any words for other Artists trying to get it in?
Just grind! Know that everyone is not going to like your music, but it’s over a billion people in the world. Even if someone says “no”, it’s way more people left that could say “yes”. Keep pushing.
