Nine5Four Magazine: What is the process that you take to create a song?
Vulcha Smooth: It’s a lot of process to make a song sometime I just hear the beat its like a siren it just talk to me like that and I just go in. Then sometimes I just need to get in my zone go behind the building and smoke on a blizzard and just chill and get in my zone let the beat play and go in. Sometime I start free-styling off it or maybe something will pop in my head during the day I write it down and find one of those Phat Boy Beats that it fit well on and it happens like that. You just have to get in your zone.
Nine5Four Magazine: How did you hook up and signed with Da Crib Entertainment?
Vulcha Smooth: I recorded my first song at Da Crib Studio I was with a group back in the days called “Vulcha Status” and a person I was in the group with he knew Phat Boy from school so he just got the beats and we went to the studio and we pay for it. I meet Phat Boy ever since then I recorded there cause when I go to other studios they be on some other stuff one person can’t mix the other got me in the closet and stuff like that. I just knew where the good sound was at so I kept coming here. I did whatever I had to do to get my bread then to get some studio time and after a few years maybe two or three years Phat Boy seen that I was getting better and consistent and he gave me a lot of game and I took it and he seen I ran with it and then after a while. I always say “Ima do what I got to do to get some studio time for free well something like that so I can have a nice situation”. Eventually Phat Boy seen what I was doing and he was messing with it so he signed me to the label ever since then we been working.
