Interview with Blitz the Entertainer.
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
Blitz The Entertainer: I’m from Jacksonville, FL, Duval, County. I used to be in a group called F.L.A. (Front Line Alliance). I actually started the group and I was the youngest of the group. We had big dreams to make hit records. When it came down to the truth, all we really had was talent, cds, flyers and posters. The only thing that was missing was distribution, road manager, and direction. So I jumped on the Greyhound and moved to Atlanta, GA. In 2006, without knowing a soul, I got to where I am today by hard work, dedication, and staying true for what I believe in, music. I produce tracks for myself of course, Dem Franchize Boyz, Rico Suave’, Kilo Ali, Khia, Sweet of Stack’em Ent., Shawty Lo, and West Side Ink.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
“Blood, Sweat & Tears” is an anthem! If you ever had a hustle or achieved your goals you can actually say you’ve made it through the blood, sweat & tears.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Leaving my hometown Jacksonville, FL, coming to Atlanta, and establishing personal relationships with artists in Atlanta.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
The whole situation is a set back until we make it. Being an artist in a group in Jacksonville with no backbone was a major set back. Now I have so much support and people backing me which all came from staying loyal to my craft.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Make sure you have your legal documents in order: copyrights, etc. Don’t trust everybody in the industry and go about doing things the right way. Avoid taking short cuts if you can. You never know who knows who, so don’t burn any bridges.
