We got a chance to sit down with Vicdaggsii and learn more about the interesting human and artist he is. His new music on the way and much more.
- Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?
I started to form the idea of making music my senior year of high school. After that idea formed into a plan, I applied to be a part of The Residency which is a youth program to help further those interested in music and also they touch on important world matters. That’s a part I always took away from that time of my life back then.
2. Where are you from?
I was born in Seattle but I’ve always lived in Kent and went to school out there, but growing up through sports and where my family is from I would be in Seattle often and stay with my grandma growing up over summers with my cousins. Right across from the Rainier vista.
3. When did you start music?
I started music back in 2016 upon graduation. It started as me taking up a poetry class then my teacher and other peers told me how advanced and talented I was so I ran with it. I’m still running.
4. How did you get into music?
I don’t know if I can say I ever got into music. Music is a spiritual thing for me. So when I was aware of this connection I guess you can say music got out of me with me expressing myself intentionally. It’s always been there. Anyone can pursue music if they are in-tune and realize they are creating from nothing, it’s a beautiful thing.
5. What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
The most challenging thing I’ve overcome and I think a lot of people like me have or still deal with is mental health. It’s an important but touchy topic in a black household. When these topics are touched it can bring strength and also understanding, a union deeper than before.
6. Are you currently signed or independent?
I am currently not a signed artist. I am independent.
7. Who inspires you most musically?
A lot of artists inspire me. It depends on my mode or motive at the time, I move purposefully. If I got a show I might watch dot perform and capture that and use it. If I’m trying to market something I may watch ye with his antics but powerful pull. If I’m looking to make a visual, me and Rolando might collectively watch artists like Mick Jenkins. It’s more of a time and place thing. My main inspiration is my family. I see them everyday. That’s inspiration In real time and real situations. Wanting better.
8. What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
I want people to take away from my music that anything is truly possible. I’m typing this at Bogey Boys right now and I was supposed to clock in already. I didn’t. When your dreams are there you’ll know. But mainly before you try to know anything. Take time to get to know yourself. Your worth, purpose or passion.
9. Any new music coming on the way?
Yes I have an entire vault of music. I have a project dropping February 25th that I was so appreciative to be a part of with my good friend Elan Wright titled “Eye Of The Storm” . I also have singles lined up and another project that’s coming out later this year.
