Interview with BIG ANT SNAPPED

my first credits were with chedda da connect the guy that made flick of the wrist. i produced serve,touchdown,never change, and wash my hands for him. an artist from milwaukee named black chris i produced his whole album with a placement from moneybagg yo on it i produced called money X power, also i recently just came back from houston and i made a new single for twayne which is the guy who made the nasty freestyle that was a hit as well. and currently have 4 major placements on brian angels first solo album who is one of the singers from the group day 26 so be looking out for those exclusive credits soon. and i have also produced for sauce twins with jrag on a song called sauce up and sosamans made for this track.

How old are you?
i am 26 years old

funniest reason/excuse a rapper ever gave you for not having the money for a beat on time?
funniest reason was because they thought we was so close i was just going to givem the beat because he said he was next up and with me having placements and knowing whos gonna make it and who needs work i felt like that was hilarious this rap game isnt free so idk why even rap if you cant pay your way and thats me being honest.

Where are you from?
i am from milwaukee, wisconsin and i reside in houston texas

How long have you been producing? Why/How did you get into it?
i have been producing beats since i was 12 when my barber explained to me what it was and gave me fl studio i hooked it up and taught myself how to use it and since then i been a force to be messed with, i was also already playing the drums so my drum game is so locked down i caught on to fl studio quick.

When did you know you made it? or that this could be an actual career for you?
when i got my first placement with chedda da connect at the same time that flick of the wrist was blowing up, which is when i took my first trip to texas on a business trip.

can you tell us about (me and the readers) the coolest, or most satisfying, OR the most expensive beat sale, you’ve ever done?
the most ive sold a beat for was 500 in texas to an artist i never even heard of but he had the money to back up what he was doing right then and there.

Who are your biggest influences?
zaytoven is the top one of them all tbh, metro booming, tm 88, mpa judo, bracks, cashmoney ap, june james, yib, yung kels, internet money, leaux fi, taz taylor etc the list can go on about who i got respect for in this game, and last but not least myself of course.

Want to give any shoutouts?
shout out to all the producers who aint giving out free beats and that are trying to bust their ass to make this their daily job.

What do you find is the best platform or avenue of selling your beats? and why?
i would have to say youtube and kind of beatstars but mostly youtube.

Do you have any other income streams besides crafting instrumentals? like, do you sell shoutouts or do you also song write, or write books, etc?
i actually song write and i currently am working a job so i can build my dream studio and be in that studio full time.

What is something about you people would be surprised to know?
that my song writing when i record it sounds like what they hear in the industry and it doesnt even look like it would be me on the tracks that i do.

Whats your process for making a beat?
i usually start off with the melody then i add drums and then add the rest of the sounds if needed, and then i tune my melodies with gross beat etc so ik they cant really be mimicked because people willl think that they are stock sounds when they actually arent.

What do your beats normally cost?
for a least about 45 to 50 but to own them 500 plus i keep my publishing unless a more serious artist has a bigger budget.

Any stories on how you got some of your placements?
i used my last 100 bucks to my name to catch a ride with a film director going to texas just so i can get my placements

what are your plans for 2018?
i plan on building up a new youtube and gaining alot of streaming and channel traffic which brings more serious customers also.

Who do you think will part of the new wave in 2018? (producer wise and rapper wise)
lil mosey, comethazine, rip but lil lonnie was on his way to being bigger than he was too, bracks, jay white, tay keith, bloc boy jb, and myself.
