(HALO ROCKZ) Introduce yourself for those who may not have heard of you…
(DB) My Rap name is my name David B (DB Humble), but I go by DB for short. Born and raised in Miami. The 1st half of my life I was raised with my 2 brother and my mom in Over town. By the age of 11 I moved with the ol boy (if u not from Miami ol boy means Dad) in Carol City where I graduated from and played for the legendary Walt Frazier CC ZUU.
(HALO ROCKZ) So tell us how did you get started. where did you begin?
(DB) As far as I can remember, I listened to my older brother (Anthony) beat boxing asking me to say “the fat boys are back”. That stayed in my subconscious because when I got in middle school, I’d get kicked out of class for beating on the table and free styling about how my classmates looked. After High school, I linked up with one of my childhood friends and we started creating. Fast forward to today, I produce, edit videos, and I guess u can say write(in my head cuz I don’t write) and Formed AMPDOG PRODUCTIONS which I named after my brother Anthony. Ampdog was his nickname he died July 2017.
(HALO ROCKZ) Our Condolences about your brother.
How do you handle being an independent artist as far as the support and actually getting heard?
(DB) I love doing it… I’m authentic and I feel people will eventually pick up on them vibes. Never had much support so I learned to work alone. I would be happy with a loyal fanbase then a big one… Quality over quantity.
(HALO ROCKZ) What do you think about the new artist out today?
(DB) They are Different, from me that is. Most of them sounds the same. My ears can’t recognize who is who because of the auto-tune. Whoever’s hot at that time, that’s the blueprint everybody follows. Most of them don’t make complete albums or they simply cant. On the other hand, they’re making money and I guess that’s what it’s about for them. I want the money too, but I want to give the game exactly what its missing.
(HALO ROCKZ) I’ve heard your music and to me you would be a great addition to this industry. What song of yours means the most to you?
(DB) Massive Threat… With everything going on in the world, I felt like people who think different are targeted. When it comes on, it sounds like you are getting ready for war. The video is tight and it sounds like my introduction to the game.
(HALO ROCKZ) Who or What inspires you?
(DB) AMPDOG… Besides that I just want people to hear me. I wanna be able to take care of my family.
(HALO ROCKZ) What does “music” mean to you?
(DB) To me music is the manipulation of vibrations. Music is Math, Science, literature put together. Music is making your point with style and rhythm.
(HALO ROCKZ) Who is your all time favorite rap artist?
(HALO ROCKZ) What boundaries do you think is needed on rap music?
(DB) If u cant rhyme, be on time, be different and offer the game something creative, then don’t rap. I feel like u need to be able to write your own sh*t, if you cant, then don’t rap.
(HALO ROCKZ) What do you have in store?
Are there projects you’re working on?
(DB) Yes , I have an album coming out later this year, and I’m making 2 videos which one is coming out really soon on YouTube. I already have 2 albums out on all platforms (Massive Threat and 2nd Time Around). I also have over 10 videos out already.
(HALO ROCKZ) I know it’s difficult these days seems like it’s who you know Vs a good artist. How do you handle that?
(DB) Get to know the right people. I’m not gonna change, so I’m hoping that the right person will and can hear me, and get behind me. It’s a business, and the creative side such as marketing, promotion, distro, etc… All will have to agree and trust one another, that’s why it's who u know.
(HALO ROCKZ) Tell us where can we hear your music and more about what’s in store.
(DB) Well as I said before I have 2 albums out on all major platforms such as (Massive Threat and 2nd time around). I have my YouTube (AMPDOG PROUDCTIONS) where u can literally find over 10 videos that I've edited. I’m currently shooting a video for a close friend and I am working on my 3rd album. I love doing it, so yes this is my passion. And yea you are gonna hear from me as long as THE MOST HIGH allow me to possess this body…
