Who is AYYVEE FlySpanishBoy? – The Hype Magazine
Hype: What first got you into music?
Ayyvee: I always loved music. It’s what gets me through life. When I’m going through something or I feel like I need to express something. Music gives me that outlet to get my point across.
Hype: Who inspired you to make music?
Ayyvee: Music was always a part of my life since I was young, my mom was a part of the church’s choir. And my dad was in a band, so I come from a background where music was always around. Since I speak both Spanish and English, I got to learn the best of both worlds and different types of styles of music. So that’s one of the major keys that inspires me that I can either hit you with a Spanish Song or English Song.
Hype: How would you describe the music that you typically create?
Ayyvee: I create music that is motivating and inspiring to others mostly. I switch it up at times, I like making songs that tell stories, here and there I throw in the club songs, and songs to just vibe to.
Hype: What is your creative process like?
Ayyvee: Usually I go through a lot of beats and if they catch my ear I’ll put it all on my notes. If a beat really catches my attention and feel inspired right away, I’ll start my creative process as ideas that just pop up in my head and write all of them down. And piece them together like a puzzle. If I want it to come out perfect I don’t rush it I take my time, so it can be worth the wait.
Hype: Who would you most like to collaborate with?
Ayyvee: First I’d like to collaborate with the people from my city, so I’m looking to tap in with all of Dallas up n coming artists and Rappers or already established, I already got a track with Fat Pimp that I’m planning to drop on June 1st to Start the summer off for Dallas so keep an eye out for that on YouTube @AYYVEE FlySpanishBoy. Other than that I’d like to work with Yella Beezy, Sauce Walka, and DeeBaby just to name a few from Texas. And on a Global scale I’d like to work with Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Dave East, The Weeknd, and the list goes on.
Hype: What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
Ayyvee: Before I got serious with the music, I was a Muay Thai kickboxer. I still use it in my exercise, However it got to a point where I was going to either have to focus on just one, I chose music. And another hobby I do as like a side thing right now, is just trading stocks online, learning to invest. But if I wasn’t doing the other two I’d probably be a full time trader/Investor
Hype: Which famous musicians do you admire?
Ayyvee: First Tupac because one moment he had the I don’t give a f##ck attitude, and then the next moment he’d be the revolutionary activist. And all the work ethic he put in, in such little time from writing all his songs and albums to last for centuries, acting in Hollywood movies, and leaving such a big impact in Hip Hop.
Hype: I admire Nas because he’s the best storytelling rapper in my opinion, when he puts a story in a track he makes you feel as if you’re there visualizing every moment he’s rapping it out. And last because he’s one of the most humblest rappers I’ve seen?
Hype: How do you feel the internet has impacted the music business?
Ayyvee: That’s a good one, I feel like the internet gave everybody not just the music business. You know people who want to be Entrepreneurs, people who want to start their own business, people who like painting and selling their work, people who want to be musicians, rappers, singers, the internet gave/gives us easy access to all the keys we need.
Hype: If you can change anything about the industry, what would it be?
Ayyvee: We need more people that teach the music business, to retain ownership of your own craft. More people that teach about music licensing, publishing, buying your masters. So you’re royalties can be passed on to your kids kid’s for generations you know. And another thing that needs to change is what I see a lot in young artists especially is that, they just focus too much on going viral or only think about the quick money. But don’t take the time to study the business side of music for the long run. Consistent money is better than quick money, if you go the independent route it might take a little longer but it’s so worth it in the end.
Hype: What is one message you would give to your fans?
Ayyvee: Stick to your plan and learn to not take no for an answer.
