Currently signed to an independent label called For The Long Run Ent., utilizing his creative skills learnt from mentors Mike Snell, who nurtured artists such as Teyana Taylor, and Caso, owner of LaVitaGold. This LA creator has worked with 24Hrs, Teejayx6, Ballout, Chief Keef & many more set to come.
Arsn is about to hit a new milestone with his single ‘Exotic’ featuring Bino Rideaux reaching 30K streams on Spotify.
My latest song Exotic with Bino Rideaux is about a shawty that’s exotic in my life at that moment and telling her that I’m where the money is, at all cost. Asking her if she’s fucking with a boss because boss’s be on the move and we don’t got all the time in the world to just be sitting up and chillin. Letting her know that I always got her no matter what though I know no matter any situation I’m a get her out of it because I’m that guy for her.
HITTING ONE OF YOUR MILESTONES IN 2022 HOW DOES THIS FEEL?
It feels amazing, honestly being able to get the recognition that I do because of my song I had like some encounters where I shared my song with some kids at the mall and they asked to take pictures with me. Getting that kind of love and support is just like phenomenal. It’s like a life-changing experience something that I can’t even explain. One of those things where I can’t really talk too much about it, because it’s just a feeling that feels amazing. All this hard work, you know I’ve been making music for 10 years it’s just amazing! I’m just thankful and grateful. I have so much gratitude for moments like that in my life it’s just phenomenal!
WHAT KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED?
What keeps me motivated is first of all my son and his mother. Secondly I would have to say not being in the position that I want to be in always keeps me motivated along with just knowing my potential and where I could be. Bouncing from failure to failure and never giving up. Just to know when my next song might be the song to change my life.
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE SELF LOVE?
I think self-love is something that I’ve always focused on, I get called selfish a lot. But the way I think about it is either you love yourself so much that it bothers other people or you lose yourself and you’re mad at everybody around you because you got lost and what they had going on instead of focusing on yourself. Don’t get me wrong I tend to lose myself as well in specific things but I always find a way to be able to balance everything.
TALK ABOUT THE “LIKE THIS” VISUALS WITH WAVEZ AND THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG.
Explaining to our girl that they never been with a boss and now we are going to boss them up. They really didn’t live life like this before. All the stuff that we put them onto, they really wasn’t onto prior to us. Showing them a life that they didn’t think was possible.
