Neco - music artist
This month we had the opportunity to sit down with emerging rap phenomenon !Neco and talk a bit about his musical journey as well as influences that have marked his career.

Neco (stylised !Neco) is a rising recording artist who has been carving a sound of his own. He first got his break by being featured on a Power 105.1 artist Spotlight segment and then continued his momentum by releasing several back-to-back double singles this past year.  We wanted to let our audience know a bit more about him beyond the music!

Neco, it’s great to have you; thank you for being here! Let’s start with this question: What brought you mainstream music culture, specifically the Hip Hop scene?

I’ve always been inclined to create honest music; the industry is so fast-paced; there are always new sounds and modern ways of projecting your voice. Sometimes it’s simplicity, creating relevant music that connects with people. I’m somewhere in the middle, I love making genre-bending music, and I believe that meeting people where they’re at is the best way to make a difference in their lives.

What was the first record you started writing this year?

I think it was fwb. I remember coming home from a concert that night and having a conversion with a friend that week about a recent breakup I was going through.

You are a pretty diverse artist; describe the music scene in your neck of the woods?

Initially, I thought the German music scene was to saturated for artists lik me, But in reality, no matter where you go in the world, there’s always creatives, always some hidden talent waiting to be discovered. So it’s a matter of being in the right place at the right time; sometimes, I call that divine intervention. Pretty crazy.

Who and what are your influences?

Always loved Eminem, MGK, Timbaland and Nas, Mizzy Pop.

What artists are you listening to right now?

A bit of everything, to be honest!

Who would you like to work with in the future?

Collab with Eminem for sure!

What steps would you take as an artist to break an artist in your area?

Well, publicity is everything, touring, putting out great music that people remember!

Last but not least, What’s your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?!”

Haha, is that a meme? I don’t know!

Neco It’s been a pleasure. Thank you so much for taking the time with us. We know people will resonate with what you’ve shared.

We look forward to your upcoming projects in the new year!
