We sat down with Mr.Reaper to discuss his music and much more. Here's what he had to say:
Hey Mr.Reaper, welcome to FLEX! How are you? Hey, thanks for having me here. I am doing well and thanks for asking. Congratulations on your new single ‘Options’ featuring Wiz Khalifa - what inspired this particular track? Well, I was given a feature from my publicist with this beat and I felt a mainstream/commercial feel would pair well with this track. I stuck to my roots as an underground artist and delivered a quality piece.
And do you have to be in a certain mood to write? Most of the time I have to be in a good space to write. But it all depends on my day-to-day situations as well as how I am feeling the beat. How was the recording and writing process? It was very fluid. I knew what I wanted to do and how I wanted it to come out. For viewers that don’t know Mr.Reaper, how would you describe your sound? My sound is commanding, confident, lyrical, and melodic at times. And what are some of those activities that you engage yourself in when you aren't writing or recording in the studio? I love to play paintball and other sports such as basketball, football, and darts. I have a great interest in writing inspiring/motivational quotes which are on my Instagram.
