Today we’d like to introduce you to Qua Tha Star.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
My big brother was doing music when I was a kid. He is always listening to music and freestyle around me. It started to grow on me & before you know it I was always listening to music but I really wasn’t interested in making my own.
I ended up making my first song with my brother when I was just 12 years old & after that, I started making my own songs. At the time, it was just a hobby nothing I cares to take seriously. I started making music with my friends because they were already making music. I didn’t start taking music seriously until I was 20 years old.
That was when I dropped my first music video with some friends of mine and we got a lot of positive feedback and request for more music. That feedback is what made me feel like this was something I could take seriously so that’s when I got the ball rolling.
Over the years, I have toured 12 different states & 20 different cities performing and showcasing my talent. I have dropped many songs and videos to go along with them and I actually make money from my music now.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The road has not been smooth at all. Along the way, there have been many struggles and bumps in the road. It’s easy to just pick up a microphone, make a song and release it.
The struggles are building your brand and getting yourself out there in the public eye the scenes that people don’t see. You also have people trying to scam you in this business offering you paid services that they can’t get done for you.
And there are also times when you sometimes just want to stop making music because you may feel like it’s not taking off fast enough. A big struggle for me was my big brother going to prison when I was 14 and my best friend being killed back in 2017.
Those 2 things made me want to quit but at the same time go harder because I felt like I would let them down if I just give up.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a musician that specializes in Rap/Hip-Hop music.
I am known for my cool laid back personality and my realistic southern style of rap. I am most proud of how much I have grown & matured as a person and artist over my years in the business. What sets me apart from others is the work ethic & desire I have developed to become successful.
I also feel like my willingness to learn sets me apart. I am always open to learning new things about the business never thinking I know it all.
If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
I feel like my work ethic and humbleness is most important to my success. Reasons being, if I don’t stay hungry and really work to become successful I will not become successful because my work ethic won’t match what it takes to be a success.
I feel like humbleness helps because as I become successful if I don’t stay humble and start to become arrogant or look down on others I can lose a lot of support. I have seen lots of brands lose support because they become full of themselves & forget where they once were or what it took for them to become successful.
No matter how much I succeed the road it took to get there will always be in the back of my mind.
