GET TO KNOW: HonorRoll
After building up some incredible praise for his releases in recent months, Ohio-based rapper HonorRoll is back to his driven ways on the smooth and pulsing new single 'Queen City'.
Channelling a wonderfully broad and vibrant aesthetic from start to finish, 'Queen City' makes for a brilliantly groove-filled offering. With his euphoric flow layered effortlessly across a sweeping rhythm throughout, he is establishing himself as a true talent on the scene right now.
So with the new single available now, we sat down with him to find out more about his background and influences over the years.
What was the first band or artist you fell in love with?
Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?
Yes my first group I formed was called the Wicked Boyz, we didn’t really have a sound yet. It was the 90’s and we were young, so we were just very expressive through our lyrics.
What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?
I had took about 12-13 yrs off from writing, but in the recent months I had lost 3 people that were close to me. So the only way to vent was to write, and those events had drew me back into writing again.
What is a song you wish you had written yourself?
Nas - “If I ruled the world”
If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?
Meeting Pimp C from the legendary group (U.G.K) in Houston, TX back in 2006.
Which artist would you most love to share a stage with?
And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?
Larry June from San Francisco.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
In my prime.
