Spade The Artist Straight Out Of College Park, Ga.


College Park native " Spade The Artist " dropped some gems on his upcoming projects, collabs and more. Keep scrolling below to find out what he had to say.


Tell me in a few words, who you are. How would you describe

yourself in a short story.

I’m “Spade The Artist” originally from College Park, Ga but I

currently live in North Carolina with my wife of 2years. I am 24

years old my birthday is August 2nd . I am a military veteran and

served 4years in the Marine Corps from 2015-2019. In 2019 I

began making music.


 What’s your stage name and how did you come up with it?

“Spade The Artist” and I started getting called Spade as a joke

because I would make so much money playing spades, the card

game and that’s all I wanted to do. I just ran with it and put The

Artist at the end because I never wanted to be a rapper, I felt like I

could be so much more than just a rapper so I wanted to make it

clear that I’m an Artist.


 What got you into music?

I used to go to the studio with an old

friend that rapped and I ended up getting on a song with him

and from there I eventually started doing my own thing.


 What was life like growing up?

Life was rough but fun. I grew up mainly with my 2 siblings one a

year older than me and the other a year younger. I had both

parents in my life so I’m grateful for that even though they weren’t

always together and I had some big fall outs with my father

growing up. Money was usually low but we always found a way to

eat and to have fun. I was raised to be a hard working well

rounded man. And because of the things I went through growing

up I think I can get through anything.


 Who is your inspiration? What keeps you going to get up daily

and put effort into your music career?

My family as a whole motivates me to give it my all in

everything. I promise one day my family will be worth billions

and not one of them weird billionaire families we still going to

be a cool loving family but we getting to the money.


 What is your creative process like? What is the meaning behind

your current single?

My creative process usually consist of me

sitting down and taking my time writing, scrapping ideas and

coming up with new ones until I think I got it right but my new

single “Body After Body” was completely off spontaneous and was

rushed in the studio. It was my first time working with my

producer/engineer “Mak Smooth” and he played the beat for “Body

After Body” (which he produced) and it instantly caught my

attention. He immediately made me start punching in without

giving me too much time to gain my thoughts or go back and

change anything but the outcome was amazing and we’ve got

nothing but positive reviews on the single.


 What is the name of the current single/ep/album that you

are pushing? Do you prefer people to buy it or stream? And

why?

“Body After Body” by Spade The Artist, prod. by Mak Smooth is

my current single. The song is undeniable. I don’t have a

preference if you stream it, buy it, rent it , borrow it, I don’t care

just listen to it. It’s undeniable and its going to be so much more

pressure like that on the way from me. Undeniable tracks

produced by Mak Smooth. It’s coming.


 With the industry changing so much, would you stay indie or

sign to a label? Why and why not? That would all depend on

the deal and the belief that a label really has in me. I believe in

myself, my music , and my ability to make money so much that

a label would have to come with a very beneficial offer that

doesn’t have me locked up with them forever but if it’s a win/win

situation then I’m all ears.


 Do you feel like the music industry has went down since the

pandemic? Why or why not? Where you affected by the

pandemic with music or everyday life?



 If you were give a chance to sit down and have a business

dinner with a celebrity who would it be and why?

50 cent because he’s had a lock on the industry since he got in

it. He’s a real hustler not just a rapper. And he’s successfully

done a lot of things that I would like to do outside of music.

Even the shows that he produces, I would love to be a part of

any of those so he is without a question who I would want a

business dinner with. I’d love to have the chance to show how I

could benefit his businesses and learn from him.


 How do you balance everyday life tied into your music career?

I don’t really think about balance so much, I hustle, I give it 100%

and I stay genuine to myself so if it’s a situation that I feel like

comes before music I go with it or if I feel like music needs to be

the priority at the moment that’s what I do but I stay true to myself

and give it my all. That way I never have regrets.


 Tell me about your most memorable moment in your career?

My first performance ever was in Japan. I made a little money and

had so much fun. The reaction of everybody in the crowd after was

insane. That’s what really drove me to take music serious.


 What style of music do you prefer to make? Would you

ever try a different lane?

I prefer rap with energy that makes you want to get out of your

seat or speed down the highway. Something that’s going to

make you want to go get some money. But I’m open to other

lanes more so on collabs than by myself but I definitely plan on

releasing music for the ladies too.


 Do you have a celebrity crush?

No, but when I was a kid I had the biggest crush on Megan Good.


 Is there anyone who you would collab with right now?

I'm down to collab with anybody who makes dope music but some

dream collabs of mine are, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Tory Lanez,

Meek Mill, Migos and Anuell AA.


 Who is the producer and engineer behind your music?

Mak Smooth. He’s a beast.


 What are you currently working on and what is next for you?

I got some singles in the vault I’m going to start releasing to

establish my sound and the I want to do a EP with Mak Smooth

dedicated to the hustlers.


 When it comes to fashion, whats your dressing style ?

I guess I would say urban street wear would be my style but I’m

not afraid to throw on a suit. Or really go crazy though and just put

on whatever I feel like it.


 If you could open up for one celebrity who would it be and why?

Lil Baby, because I feel like his audience would gravitate

towards me as well.


 Any funny stories or an embarrassing moments you want to

share with our readers?

Nothing I can really think of but keep following me I’m sure you’ll

catch a laugh or two.


 What would you be doing right now if it wasn’t for your music

career?

I don’t know. Anything I want to do, I do. I go after it, it may take

time to accomplish or make it happen but I do everything I desire.

Why else be alive if you’re not going to do the things you desire?

You just have to find ways to make money or live of the things that

bring you joy.


 What is one message you would give to your fans?

Go after your dreams no matter how long it takes it’ll take longer if

you never start. Do what you want and accept constructive

criticism but don’t let it discourage you.
