MJ: Before we jump right into one of 2022’s hottest tracks, introduce yourself to those who might not be familiar with KRUSH.
Krush: I am Krush from Wichita Kansas, a Hip Hop/Pop artist, voice actor, and songwriter. I want to inspire people with a new style of Hip Hop by creating this mixed genre of music. My ambition is to become a positive influence in the universe of music.
MJ: Share a bit of your background which included many challenges. How did you go from group homes, homelessness, to becoming a successful Hip Hop artist?
Krush: Praying positivity, having faith, and knowing that there was more for my future. Living in poverty growing up in the inner city is what I lived. I knew I had a talent for music. I would set my goal to make a better life for myself. I worked hard, made sacrifices, and exerted a lot of discipline. I had to invest in myself to move on from that past life of couch surfing and being homeless. I had it in me to be an entertainer. I always knew I wanted to be doing something in music so I put that talent to expressing myself over instrumentals and discovered my will to want to be an artist.
MJ: What is the Hip Hop scene like in Kansas?
Krush: It’s a very strong influence on how we live. From our clothing, to how we speak, dance, and stay motivated! The indie scene is full of talented artists who support one another in our community. The love for Hip Hop in Kansas is extremely amazing!
