Check out the latest interview with recording artist Tone Fuego from Queens, New York and TGWEWON's Du'Lanci Vallie below.
What do you think makes you stand out from all the other aspiring and upcoming artists in your genre of music?
I’m just real and raw. My energy is magnifying and I don’t compete with nobody. I feel like I’m in my own lane.
What is your creative process like?
I know if it’s going to be a banger soon as I hear the beat. I throw on a few beats and start vibing and freestyling. Write it down and go from there
What are you doing to ensure you continue to grow and develop as an artist?
I’m never going to stop. Only time you stop growing is if you stop the commitment. I’ve loved music since I was little, so now that this is my journey. I’m taking it to the top.
Out of all the songs you've released, what do you think is your Best song and why?
Menace 2 Society because not only does it have a good bop, it has fire bars and that’s the sound I’m trying to mesh. Bop & Bars
When faced with making a big decision, how do you decide what is the right thing to do?
I have strong gut intuitions. I’m never big on peer pressure. I definitely have my own mind, my own heart. When something don’t sit right with me, I don’t go through with it.
Are you able to make a living with your music? If so, how were you able to attain a career doing what you love? If not, what do you do in order to fund your music career? What advice would you give to someone who's interested in pursuing a career in music?
Don’t be lazy. Nothing is going to fall into your lap. I work as a bartender before I started music and I still bartend now. Sometimes it takes a temporary job to fund your real business, passion or hobbies. Income gotta flow from somewhere, don’t just be out here looking for hand outs. Get up, grind and have hustle.
If you weren't in the music business or industry, what do you think you would be doing with your life instead?
I’m just really into art and creative expression. I dance, I bartend, I was doing tattoos for a minute. Whatever I do in life, I need freedom to be who I am. That’s why I fell in love with music too. Cus I was really just being myself on tracks.
What is your latest release and where can fans find it?
Latest release is my song “Nice Over” it is on all platforms and music video is out on YouTube
What is on your agenda or what can fans expect to see from you in 2023?
This year I’m really just grinding. More visuals, more performances. For everybody that’s sleep on me, I’m trying be the next biggest thing out of Queens
