But he’s more than just a producer; he’s also a businessman. He’s a businessman with a vision for his future, and the only way he’s looking is up.
Being a Producer
Producing is an attractive lane to get into. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most overlooked jobs in the music industry. Producers have to face a constant uphill battle when choosing to do it for the rest of their lives. It’s scarce when you become a household name like Pi’erre Bourne, Jetsonmade, Metro Boomin, etc. But 009fly is destined to be among the greats and has even put out albums that are strictly his instrumental beats.
Q – What drove you down the producing lane and not rapping?
A – I always had a deeper appreciation for the sounds I heard in songs and ultimately started to like songs for the beat and not the lyrics. On top of that, everybody raps, so I wanted to do something different. To be known as a different kind of guy.
Q – How would you describe your producing style?
A – I call it soft-trap. Real ambient & lush melodies with refined trap percussion
Q – What beats do you make best?
A – My beats.
Q – What is the upside to releasing beat albums as a producer?
A – Creative control. simple as that
Being from Boston
Now, if you see the city “Boston” on paper, you’re mind immediately searches for artists who have come up from there. 009fly, Devstacks, and Rich Amiri are the only notable people to come out of Boston. But here’s what 009fly had to say about Boston:
Q – How do you see the scene in Boston?
A – Small as hell, but it’s cool… hella intimate. If you do some fly shit, people will understand and treat you accordingly. It pushes me to go harder with my content because I need my name to come with respect fr.
Q – How would you rank yourself among those in Boston?
A – I’d like to think I’m in the hall of fame, so to speak. Definitely the top 20 most fly/most creative solo act in the scene for sure. My name ring bells out here.
Being More than a Producer
009fly doesn’t put all of his eggs in one basket. He is a jack of all trades whenever it comes to internet-based activities.
Q – What do you bring to the table as an artist? As an entrepreneur? As a person?
A – My creativity! My network, champion mentality, and unrelenting pursuit of meaningful content. My understanding of the game we play inside and out! Last but not least, my character and ability to build meaningful connections with others.
Q – Have you always had a hack for internet-based activities?
A – Yeah, man, I’ve been comfortable using the internet since a young age, so it only became more manageable once I applied those skills to my current interests.
Q – What other things do you do outside of producing?
A – A little bit of A&R’ing and Creative consulting for my friends and formal clients. Basically, websites, graphic design, and animations are mixed in with marketing and branding advice.
Q – What led you to do website building, discord building, artist consulting, etc.?
A – Dude, I was bored one time and just started to play around with it. It seemed interesting then, and I looked at the website like a visual puzzle. I eventually created my own website, and my friends told me I needed to promote it more. The rest is history.
As for artist consulting, I’ve always been good at networking and making connections, so it was easy to start providing opportunities to my colleagues and close friends.
