PIT INTERVIEW: MUSIC, DEPRESSION & SUPPORT
IN THE LAST DAYS WE HAVE TRIED TO SETUP AN INTERVIEW WITH PIT, AND IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED. WE REFLECTED ON EVERYTHING FROM PIT'S MUSIC, HIS FAMILY, FUTURE AND HOW IS CURRENT SITUATION IS. ENJOY!
HELLO PIT, WHAT’S UP!?
Not much, I’m working on a bunch of different songs at the moment. It may or may not turn into a project…
AYE, SOUNDS GOOD, WHEN CAN WE EXPECT THESE TO BE RELEASED?
You can expect a single in the next two weeks… it’s gonna be a banger!
NICE, BUT FOR THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW YOU, PRESENT YOURSELF;
What the fuck is up? I’m PIT, and yes that shit is all caps. I’m from Atlanta Georgia, I’m 17, and I’m working my ass off to do whatever I can to get my name out there. All my songs are completely different from each other. Rarely will I ever drop two of the same kind of song in a row.
THOUGHT ABOUT THAT, WHEN I LISTENED TO YOUR SOUNDCLOUD I COULD HEAR THAT YOU ARE VERSATILE WITH YOUR MUSIC. IS IT BY MEANING OR BASED ON WHAT YOU LIKE?
Being a teenager, I experience a lot of different emotions. The past year and a half has been the hardest time of my life. I went through a really rough breakup, I lost all my friends, and got diagnosed with depression. This meant I had a lot of time to myself. So I started making music to reflect my emotions. Sometimes I wanna kill myself, and sometimes I just wanna fuck shit up. So, I’d say my music reflects however I’m feeling when I write.
DAMN. SORRY TO HEAR THAT!
SINCE YOU ARE SO VERSATILE, IT IS HARD FOR US TO PIN-POINT YOUR MAIN GENRE. SO, I’LL HAVE TO ASK YOU, WHICH MUSIC DO YOU SEE YOURSELF MOSTLY PRODUCING?
Honestly, I enjoy making sad songs more, but with my goal being to make everyone feel better than I do, I have to understand that some people need a good banger to cheer themselves up. I see myself making more bangers, because that’s what’s getting the best response, but you know that I have the capability to switch things up.
GROWING UP WHO WAS YOUR INSPIRATION?
Shit…. I have so many. I listen to literally every genre of music that isn’t country, so there’s a lot of artists who’ve inspired me over the years. There’s Gorillaz, Bobby Womack, Lee Fields and the Expressions, Japanese Wallpaper, Eminem, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Avenged Sevenfold, Five Finger Death Punch, and Pouya to name a few.
IT IS HARD TO BE AN UP AND COMING ARTIST, FOR MANY IT WOULD BE MAYBE TOO HARD WITHOUT THE HELP AND DRIVE FROM THEIR FAMILY, HOW IS IT WITH YOU?
Yeah it’s hard as fuck to keep this whole thing a secret from my family, but the thought of blowing up, and then telling my family, is so good, that it’s worth waiting for. I want them to see that my dream is profitable, so they can truly and fully support it.
WHAT ABOUT YOUR FRIENDS, DO THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR ARTISTIC CAREER?
I don’t really have any friends, but the people who know that I make music make fun of me for it. It pisses me off, and I kind of address it in my song “Stunner”, but at the end of the day that shit doesn’t matter. Russ graduated high school across the street from mine. I guarantee you people treated him the same way they treat me. Now look at him.PEOPLE ARE AFFRAID OF BEING DIFERENT, FUCK THAT SHIT! BE YOU, WHO ARE THEY TO DECIDE!
THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE, DO YOU HAVE ANY PLANS IN MIND?
The good thing about starting this early is that I have more time to build my fanbase. I’m gonna focus on school and music next year, and I’m gonna try my hardest to get through this high school hell, so that I can go to college, and continue to work on my music. I’m gonna work as long as it takes.
STICK TO IT AND I GUARANTEE YOU, YOU WILL BLOW UP!
THINKING BEYOND THE PLANS, AND TO THE DAY WHEN YOU HAVE BECOME A BIGGER AND BETTER ARTIST, ANY ARTISTS YOU WOULD LIKE TO FEATURE WITH?
I’m gonna work with whoever I can to get my name out there. As I get bigger, so will my collaborations. Before I die, i wanna make a song with X
DO YOU HAVE ANY AMBITIONS OUTSIDE OF MUSIC?
I wanna be an entrepreneur. I went to a business camp this summer, and walked away with a business scholarship. It’s funny because I don’t even fuck with school like that. I’m gonna live my life, and do my music on the side until my music becomes profitable enough to be my main focus.
LOOKING THROUGH YOUR INSTAGRAM I COULD SEE THAT YOU ARE INTO FASHION, WHAT’S YOUR PERSONAL STYLE LIKE?
I definitely love fashion…. I like to keep things simple honestly. I don’t rock yeezys. instead I stick to reebok classics… I wear shit that looks good, that I’m not gonna regret wearing in fifty years.
IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE HAVING AN INTERVIEW WITH YOU, ANY LAST WORDS?
If you fuck with my music, or if you fuck with me as a person, follow me on Instagram and Twitter @pitpresents
like I said, i’m lonely as shit, so I encourage you to dm me, because I love meeting new people, and I wanna get to know as many people’s stories as I can.
thank yo for giving me this opportunity… I wanna thank everyone who’s ever done as little as even listened to one of my songs. you guys are the reason that i’m still alive today.
