Everyday, new talent sprouts out from different corners of the world.
This time around, we bring you Mexican-American rap and hip-hop artists Arturo Macias Sanchez, popularly known as Kanashii.
Kanashii has always been a firm believer in changing the culture of the music scene around him.
Having love for all different genres of music, Kanashii collaborates with multiple artists, not relying on just a specific one.
By blending melodies and rhythms together, he layers them perfectly throughout each of his pieces.
He also finds a way to balance out the intricacies and simplistic aspects of his music very well. Kanashii also finds a way to crack comfort zones and break barriers as far as his content is concerned.
Looking to build his name in the music world, Kanashii released his first ever track a few years back. Taking some time to refine his sound and perfect his craft, Kanashii is back in action.
This year he will put his talents on full display with multiple projects and singles he has been working on. As of recent, he has already dropped a new hit single dubbed “Charge” that is currently doing well on air rotation.
The track is a true story about Kanashii and features his lasting potential within this industry. With all said, here is Q& A that we held with Kanashii.
- Why don’t you give us some details about you and your success. How did you get to where you are today?
I got to where I am today, by being consistent. A lot plays part in my success and the main thing is never giving up. When I started many would make fun of me and I didn’t let that phase me I kept going. One of the most important things that also contributed to my success is investing, I rather invest in me / my career than in jewelry, fancy cars etc.
2. I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
My success most definitely didn’t come easy. The biggest challenge I’ve faced has been to overcome all the hatred / laughter’s. No one would believe in me they’d say it was dumb what I wanted to do with my life so having to over come that was a big challenge .
Also financial hardship. There came a time when I had zero balance left to my name and didn’t know what route to take. Working different jobs to save a little cash to keep invest was probably one of the hardest.
3. Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
My work is something that can’t be replaced, my music is a key to my soul, you’ll gain access to things I’ve been through in my life. You will never get one sound, you’ll get different vibes but with the same authentic kanashii sound, Spanish, and trap . You name it all. For many, music is just a quick get rich scheme and for me it’s always been about the love.
4. What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Never stop believing in yourself and one of the most important and best things you could do is investing in yourself/ your craft . You can never go wrong with that, scared money don’t make money .
5. Speaking of success, what does the word ‘success’ mean to you?
Success to me means being able to do what you love for the rest of your life and getting paid for it. Everyone has a different definition/ meaning but for me is simply being able to do me.
6. What’s next for you?
Lots of projects coming up this year, I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon, expect lots of new music, videos, both Latin and rap records and lots of features .
7. Finally, how can people connect with you if they want to learn more?
They can connect with me through all social media platforms
