SPOTLIGHT OF THE MONTH: Singer, Budda, releases his EP, “FourLetterWords”
I: Hello Budda, first off congrats on your EP, “Four Letter Word!” Thank you for being our Spotlight of the Month. So, tell us a bit about yourself and who you are.
B: Hello!! Thanks, I really appreciate it and I’m more than excited to be apart. Well my name is Budda a lot of people know me from Mprynt. I’m from southwest Philly, raised most of my years in upper Darby and I been singing since I was 7.
I: “Four Letter Word” is an EP you recently dropped. What was your motivation behind this project and what does it mean to you?
B: Yes, “FourLetterWords!” Hmm, my motivation behind this project… I’ll start by letting you know the meaning behind fourletterwords which is LOVE & F**K. I honestly feel like it’s a lot of music out but not enough of men expressing the way they truly feel about a woman. In this Ep, I’m telling you everything that you wanna hear and may not hear from your significant other. I’ll get on my knees and cry for you if I have to. A lot of men got too much pride. And I can also please you in every way!
I: How would you describe yourself as an artist? What makes you different?
B: I’m truly one of a kind and all my music is real I don’t sing about things I haven’t been through or have. It’s all real with me. Plus, I feel like we lost that real RnB it’s a lot of rappers wanting to be singers and a lot of singers wanting to be rappers. I’m sticking to the basics but in a cool way I sing, I sing! No rap, all cool vibes.
I: Looking at where you are now, where would you like to be as an artist in 5 years?
B: In the next 5 years I’ll definitely be out of the hood, me and my family, but I wanna leave a mark behind I want to make a future for the kids who don’t have that support system or money to do so I’m all about giving back. So, I plan on opening a few community centers with a lot of different activities to keep the kids out the streets..
I: Nice! Who inspires or inspired you musically?
B: My family inspires me but musically I’ll have to say Boys II Men, Tyrese, Dru Hill, Jamie foxx, Tank, Jodeci, … the list goes on.
I: So what’s next for you? What do you have planned?
B: My plan is to do a lot of promoting for this EP!! So look out for a lot of live performances and come if you can! I actually have a couple shows coming up at warmdaddy’s on November 15th and December 12th at pubwebb it’s nothing like an up close and personal performance you get the real me!
I: Alright, we have a few fun questions for you. First question, what was your first record, tape or CD that you owned?
B: Wow, my first cd that was mine!! Jodeci (forever my lady) my mother gave it to me (laughs) I know it sounds crazy but she knew how much I loved their music even though I wasn’t old enough to understand lol.
I: if you could work with any artist in the industry, alive or deceased, who would it be and why?
B: I would work with Marvin Gaye, Teddy P, Drake, Denote from Jodeci… trust me, it’s a lot more people.
I: It’s your turn for Karaoke, what song are you going to sing?
B: Tyrese, Sweet Lady.
I: Last one, if you could perform anywhere in the world at any event, where would it be and why?
B: If I could perform anywhere I would have to say Madison Square Garden. That’s a place I’ve always dreamed about performing at!
