3 Voices: Introduce yourself to the world. Let the people know who Sonny Boy is and what…Sonny Boy does.
Sonny Boy: My name is Sonny Boy and I AM the DOPEST up and coming rapper from Chicago. Im a recent college dropout from the south side of Chicago trying to pursue [my] dreams as being one of the most influential artist of my generation.
3 Voices: What inspired you to become a rap artist? Who are some artists that have influenced your music career?
Sonny Boy: There are so many people that have inspired me to do music from Tupac to Eminem to Ludacris, Nas, etc. But I must say that hands down Bump J. is the #1 inspiration behind me wanting to pursue music…he was my favorite artist coming up and still is. I recall when I first started rapping, I rapped almost identically to how he rapped lol. I was most intrigued by his delivery and witty punch lines and metaphors which you can actually hear in a lot of my music, as well as the city wide movement “Goon Squad” which brought so many different hoods together…the city had never seen anything like it.
3 Voices: Tell us about your latest single, Gone. How did that single come about?
Sonny Boy: I actually wrote “Gone” in about 30 minutes…no lie lol. I had just received a beat from my homie, BeatFanatik (@Beatfanatik) and soon as I heard it, the hook instantly came to me and then I sat and vibe to the beat for [a] little longer and came up with the verses.
3 Voices: Can we expect a visual for, Gone?
Sonny Boy: We are shooting the visual for “Gone” in the next week or so and actually the producer of the beat is also going to direct the video as well (s/o to Julius Conway Visuals). I’m very excited for the video, we have some crazy ideas for it so just stay tuned.
