Leif Riggs is a rap artist with a unique approach to his craft. He has been writing lyrics for almost two decades, carefully considering the technical aspects of his art form. His sound is reminiscent of traditional hip-hop from the late 90s, but with a modern twist that sets him apart from his peers. In this interview, he shares his insights into his music creation process, inspiration, and upcoming releases.

Q: What inspired you to make music?

A: When I was in the 9th grade, there were older kids who freestyle rapped and breakdanced. I was inspired by their skills and passion. I started writing rap lyrics and recorded my first verse at my friend’s home recording studio.

Q: How would you describe your sound?

A: My sound has a percussive syllable structure, and my delivery is energetic. My style is similar to traditional hip-hop, but I add my own twist to make it modern and original.

Q: What are your plans for future/upcoming releases?

A: I have just completed the writing and editing for my next single, which has a crisp and emotional beat. I express my inner thoughts and personal outlooks in the lyrics. I plan to begin recording it very soon.

Q: What has been your proudest moment as a musician so far?

A: My proudest moment was when an art reel on Instagram used my music, and it was a good fit for the video.

Q: How do you plan to keep your fans engaged?

A: I keep my fans engaged by always providing complex and well-edited lyrics. I smoothly transition from one idea to the next when I write and take listeners behind the scenes with regards to my inner thoughts.

Q: What other genres of music do you enjoy listening to?

A: I listen to a lot of modern Alt-Z independent Pop music. Some artists are very-well known in that genre, and some are breakout artists.

Q: What elements do you draw inspiration from when creating your music?

A: There is a necessity in my life to create meaningful and well-produced rap songs. I depend on myself to use my time to advance in music.

Q: What Is Your Music Creation Process Like?:

A: I listen to an instrumental for about a day or two before beginning to write to it. I start out a verse by being very conscious of the message which I want to communicate. After the intro is written, it is hard to explain how the rough draft of the completed verse automatically follows. I just go into autopilot. I have almost two decades of experience in writing, and I have countless ways to continue expressing myself throughout the verse while still keeping rhyme schemes and syllable structure in mind.

Q: Can you tell us about any other musical projects you’re currently working on?

A: Well, I’ve been approached by another producer who has some beats that he wants me to write lyrics to. But right now, my focus is on completing my current project before moving on to anything else.

Q: What can you share with us about your upcoming releases? Can you provide more details?

A: My next release will feature a crisp and emotionally charged beat that I’m really excited to rap over. I believe it will be both captivating and chilling for listeners.

Leif Riggs added: I want to make it clear that I’m fully dedicated to my music career and giving it my all.
