CHECKOUT THE SULLEE J INTERVIEW

MR. 100:  WASSUP SULLEE J, I WILL FIRST START OFF BY SAYING YOU HAVE GAIN ANOTHER FAN WITH ME, YOUR MUSIC IS POWERFULLY POSITIVE AND IT'S NEEDED IN HIP HOP. WHAT INFLUENCED YOU TO MAKE THE MUSIC YOU MAKE?

SJ: Negativity is a drug, which I feel majority of the social networks seem to be addicted to. I refuse to fall under that category. The world has enough to darkness, and so I chose to be the light. Music to me is a universal language, whether the listener comprehends from the ear, or the heart. It speaks with power and conviction. It has the ability to influence, and I took advantage of that and gave it direction. A route which, can inspire the mind, captivate the soul and at the same time make you feel good!

MR. 100: I SEE YOU GRINDING HARD WITH YOUR MUSIC, YOU ARE ABOUT TO RELEASE YOUR SIXTH MIXTAPE, THAT'S IMPRESSIVE, WILL YOU BE RELEASING A ALBUM OR EP SOON?

SJ: Without struggle, there shall be no success! I will be releasing another album, we are working on some big moves right now with that, specially from known producers. I actually have an EP done already, were just waiting on the right time.

MR. 100: YOU ARE NOT ONLY A RAPPER, YOU ARE AN ACTIVIST TOO, EXPLAIN TO THE PEOPLE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR THE PEOPLE.

SJ: Wherever there is loss, there is gain. I chose to be the gain for the people. I have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to move around a few parts of the world because of a pen and paper, and make a difference. I have had the opportunity to work with some great foundations such as Thaakat, Red Cross, Save the children, Maria Monique Last Wish, Existence is Resistance and many more. At least once a year at the moment I will do a project which will be directed toward a certain region where we raise funds, clothes, electronics and more and have them sent to the specific place. Last years was “Justice Strikes” where I set up a project in Saint Kitts with a children’s home, and we were lucky to supply them with a very merry Christmas, giving them clothes, shoes, electronics, money, food and appliances. I love to do things, which put a smile on other peoples faces. I do not like to see another person fall, that’s never been my character and never will be. As long as I have to hands to lift someone up, I will do my duty as a soldier of God.


MR. 100: YOUR SONG "I'LL BURY YOU" FEATURING ROYCE DA 5'9 AND CA$HIS IS HOT, I MUST SAY YOU HELD YOUR OWN WITH ROYCE THE LYRICAL HEAVYWEIGHT, ARE YOU GETTING A LOT OF RESPECT FOR THAT?

SJ: Definitely! When you get hit up by people who used to doubt you and now they say congrats, that’s when you know your doing something right. When you hear from others that your haters are like “damn, that’s Sullee J”, that’s when you know your doing something right. It has helped me convert disbelievers into believers in my dreams. I’ve been getting a lot of new network from producers in the game that have made tracks for major artist like Eminem, rick ross, game, yelawolf, etc. It has also led me to bond with a very humble producer who goes by Rikanatti at shady records. I couldn’t be more grateful for an opportunity that I would’ve never imagined to come real 6-7 years ago. I just remind myself constantly, the grind is worth the time.

MR. 100: WHAT'S MORE IMPORTANT TO YOU LYRICS OR A HOT BEAT WHEN YOU ARE LISTENING TO HIP HOP AS A FAN?

SJ: I’ve always been conscious person, whether its music related or just conversation related. I pay attention to what people say, and look for a depth in the meaning first. As a fan, I’d say I listen to the lyrics first, just because I like tapping into people’s minds. I feel we all possess certain creativities, and to become aware of another person’s intellect and where they are coming from, intrigues me. Of course, now the psychology behind marketing in the industry is beat first and an easy hook, so I’ve been messing with some bangers, even trap beats and experimenting with them by placing truth over the beat in my own style.

MR. 100: WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN MUSIC IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS?

SJ: I want to see my music change the hearts of our generation. Influence them in a positive light and help unify as many people I can. I want to have my own brand, my own clothing line which I’ve already started, have a logo for, just need to get the right backing for it. I see me being everywhere! No one will be able to stop me from doing me!





MR. 100: I WILL MENTION ONE WORD OR NAME, ANSWER WITH ONE WORD THE FIRST THING THAT COMES TO MIND:

                                        EMINEM – brilliant

                                        HIP HOP - revolution

                                        PEACE - faith

                                        INTERNET – opportunity

                                        SULLEE J – justice

MR. 100: SULLEE J IT'S BEEN REAL, LET THE PEOPLE KNOW WHERE THEY CAN FIND YOU ONLINE, MUCH SUCCESS TO YOU PEACE.
