Casino Luchi is a well polished artist, writer and producer!
In your opinion, what is the Florida Hip-Hop scene like?
My opinion on the Florida Hip-Hop scene is a lot of hate and opinions about something different instead of either liking or not liking something and moving on. I love it down here, but we need to come together more as talented artists like a lot of other cities did in the past (Atlanta, Houston and The Mid-West). Me and my team are out here grinding it out tho.
What do you like to do best, write songs for other artists, produce, or create your own songs?
Honestly, I do all three, but enjoy creating for myself more because there are no bounderies when I am doing my own thing. Im an artist that likes all kind of music, therefore I like to experiment. Or if I just feel like doing a different kind of song, I will. You dont usually have as much range when creating for someone else.
Is it a challenge to write songs for other artists?
No, I don't think it is a challenge as long as you view the work out of there eyes instead of yours, this way you can attempt to keep it there style.
Where do you record?
My team has a few home studios that I record out of.
What other artists are hot in Florida right now?
Well, right now I can't speak for other artists, but I got a lot of heads turning so I would just say me.
What is your fan base like?
My fan base is a good mix of D-Boys, women, Dirty South, and up North heads. My fans know that when they pop in my CD, they are gonna get that hardcore party music, that block music and a lil' something you could relate too.
Have you been doing any live shows lately?
Yes, I ha've been doing a few shows a month promoting the mixtape and trying to work my way on a tour asap!
At what point in your life did you realize you wanted to be involved in music?
Listening to Biggie Smalls got me wanting to rap. Everything he was saying was so smooth and hardcore at the same time and when I first got to high school, the underground scene was nuts and I was loving everything about Hip Hop and rapping and I wanted in!
What is the biggest lesson you have learned so far being a part of the music industry?
The biggest lesson i've learned in the game is to do it yourself and be patient. This game can chew you up and spit you out so i've learned to do it myself my own way. Labels use to make me feel like I needed a deal so bad, but your the product not them. The hard part is just making your product marketable.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Well, you can expect a follow up to "20 Min To Vegas", as well as a few new singles and an all new full length album of that heat you know you will get from CASINO LUCHI.......CHA-CHI IS THE RING!
