From sunny California, hip hop artist Talent Display is emerging out into the music scene. With his recent signing to Verbal Vision label, Talent Display has a bright future ahead, and he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. These sharp tracks with solid backbeats, and strong lyrics are sure to bring Talent Display straight to the top. We got to ask this hip hop artist a few questions about his recent signing, and got to figure out a few new things about Talent Display, and what influences him to write.
Entertwine: Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from, and what past musical experience do you have?
Talent Display: I go by “TalentDisplay”, I am currently signed to Verbal Vision. I live in sunny California, I have ghostwritten for artists in various genres and have performed domestically and overseas. I have released various projects all available on VerbalVisionOnline.com where you can also find out more about me.
ET: How did you get your start into hip hop?
TD: Various albums such as “The Chronic” “All Eyes On Me” “Illmatic” “Reasonable Doubt” and more have made me enter the world of Hip-Hop. I have a specific type of appreciation for words. I was writing to a track by Pac over his lyrics and made them all have the same rhyme at the end of each bar. I rapped it out for fun and the feedback was so overwhelmingly positive I have decided to give it a go.
ET: You recently signed to label, Verbal Vision. What has this experience been like, and what does it mean to you and your music career?
TD: Well, the thing is, I have also co-founded the label. The experience is never ending, there’s always something new to learn when you form a business with anything, especially with music. It means a lot for my career, I have an investing co-founder who fully believes and shares the same vision as I do, we also have a “launching pad” if you will, because we launch everything out of VerbalVisionOnline.com as well as other online distribution venues. It’s easy to see that the independent route has become such a popular direction to go with so we have. We do not eliminate becoming a subsidiary under a major label if the structure was right.
ET: Who or what influences you to write and produce your tracks?
TD: Life experiences, great artists who share the passion for music, but most of all, those truly supporting my work, they’re the best.
ET: If you could describe your music in three words, what would they be?
TD: Go visit KPNMW.COM . That’s three words, right? [laughs]
