Reasn discusses rock inspiration and taking music to a new level

Rock ‘n’ roll is a genre that originated from rhythm and blues and opened the door for Black musicians such as Jimi Hendrix and Chuck Berry. As a result, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that hip-hop artists such as Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Travis Scott, and Lil Uzi Vert are still influenced by rock ‘n’ roll. Another artist you can add to that list is Reasn, who is definitely living that rock star lifestyle. Not caring what people say, and doing his own thing is what molded him into the rock star that he has become.
The Missouri native has been around music his whole life, being that his mother is a choir director at church, and his aunt plays the piano. I was able to catch up with Reasn on the “STFU” tour in Atlanta. –kimani hayes
You call yourself a rock star; can you tell us how that came about?
I just say what I want and I do things how I want to do it. It’s not about the drugs or anything like that. It’s just about expressing yourself and how you feel. What’s second place but a ribbon? I’m trying to get a trophy.
Do you play any instruments?
I played the piano and dabbed a little bit on the guitar.
How did you start to add the lyrical aspect to your music?
Everything I see, I do it. I don’t technically write anything down. So everything I do is like something I see and I kinda just go off the top like that.
Do you get starstruck?
Not really; [if I did] it would probably be Hulk Hogan or somebody like that.
Are you a wrestling fan?
Oh yeah. I still get hype if I see someone like John Cena. I used to be a fan of the Hardy Brothers.
Talk about your style and where you get it from.
I watched a lot of old movies with James Dean. That’s where I really patterned the way I dress. I just like the leather.
What goals do you want to accomplish in music?
I want to be a voice of reason out here. You don’t have to do the same s– to get on. It’s been tougher, doing different stuff. They try to make me do the same thing as someone like a Bryson Tiller or someone like that. But that’s just not me. So it has been tougher, but it’s going to pay off in the end.
