We were fortunate enough to talk ish with CEO and Hip Hop Artist…Metry!!! Metry is the CEO of a independent record label, Astro Music and a Hip Hop artist himself. Although Metry is young, he’s definitely not shying away from being one of the best in the music industry. Lets get to know Metry…
3 Voices: Introduce yourself to the world. Let the people know who Metry is and what Metry does.
Metry: I go by the name of Metry. I’m from Charlotte, North Carolina. I’m still putting on for my hometown back in Pinehurst, North Carolina…and I rap. And right now, I have my own project label set up with Astro Music Recordings. So everything is doing pretty good.
3 Voices: What inspired you to become a rap artist? What artists have influenced your rap career?
Metry: Basically [how] I started off,…my brother use to rap when I was growing up. So I use to take time out and watch him. I guess that’s what gave me early start. I use to watch the old BET, the old 106 & Park a while back and seeing how flashy the other rappers were when they were coming up. How young they were with gold chains and gold watches. I really thought that was something that I wanted.
3 Voices: You recently released your EP called Hustle. What can the people expect from it? What is your favorite single from Hustle?
Metry: From Hustle, basically this was a private EP that I was working on for some time. I’m just now getting to release it. I had a couple tracks on there available for streaming but not downloading for a couple months now. And I introduced some new tracks on there as well. Hustle is just like a motivation EP, I set aside tracks rather to put them on this new EP I’m working on now just to give people something to listen to and what to expect from the new EP I’m working on now. And if I can narrow it down to my favorite track on Hustle, I’ll probably say Angels.
3 Voices: What unique about the single called, Angels? Tell us about Angels.
Metry: Angels basically stands out from other music that I released. Angels has a type of soul flow to it, a soul sound that’s more on both [the] Rap and R&B type of sound. That’s something that I really haven’t released since I’ve been rapping. So I felt that was really different and something that I can give to my fans and my listeners. I also [have a] feature on there, so that’s something new and a new voice on the feature as well.
3 Voices: Who are some artists that you listen to? If you had the opportunity to work with any artists, who would it be?
Metry: Right now, my music influences…I would say Fat Trel, N. Hustle, Travis Scott, Wiz Khalifa and School Boy Q. I like the sound they use. I like [the fact] coming from where they started and where they are now, still in the industry. I would really like to work with Fat Trel, N. Hustle and School Boy Q. Those are the main people I really listen to, that’s where I’m getting my ideas from. Just listening to their music and then coming up with my way and my different interruption of how they go about things. They have really influenced me with doing what I wanna do.
3 Voices: What’s next for Metry? Are there any exclusives that you can share with us?
Metry: What’s really coming out next is this new EP I’m working on. It’s going to sound more like a album this time rather than a mixtape from my past projects, it’s called Moment’s Notice. Basically it’s like a stronger, a wiser Metry on there rather than anything you can say I gave to my fans and listeners. It’s just going to come with a stronger flow, stronger tracks, just stronger in general.
3 Voices: How can the people reach out to Metry on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and etc.?
Metry: You can catch me on Twitter @MadeManMetry and you can catch my personal Twitter as well @MetryMoney_. I’m on Instagram as well, @MetryMoney_. I have a Facebook fan page. I’m on different music distributed websites like maymile.com, mixconnect.com, Rebirth Nation, JukeBoxAlive. You just have to search my name on any of those things and you can find me.
