Known for his superior verbalism, Spade managed to get himself known in the underground Hip-Hop scene by being charismatic and jumping into cyphers. His versatility is instilled in every line he delivers. His influences include, “Wiz Khalifa, Jadakiss, Curren$y, and Travis McCoy along with the Gym Class Heroes”. I had a chance to parlay with Spade and smoke a few Blunts over Travis McCoy’s “Who Is Bernie Allen” Mixtape. We spoke about life, weed, women and friends, but most importantly music.
Spade is currently working on his first Mixtape titled, “Hustlin’ To Survive (The Piff Tape)” which is said to be released this Fall. There’s something in Spade that goes unnoticed, he’s intricate so it allows him to switch up his flow at any given moment. As we spoke about the diversity in music nowadays, Spade said something tome that stuck. “If your ears like what they’re hearing then your brain will follow”, that phrase sat well with me because it can be applied to so many lessons in life.
As Spade’s Buzz continues to grow as a Rapper, he manages to stay connected to his fans through social networks such as Tumblr, Myspace and Twitter. He is also working on establishing his own Record Label known as H.T.S Records [www.htsrecords.com]. I see dedication in Spade, his drive to make it in Hip-Hop is there, there is no doubt about it. A lot of young Rappers these days are only focused on making money and obtaining Fame. Spade has a voice that needs to be heard or as he said,
“As long as I’m alive and get to experience shit Ima express it through my Music”.
