Thank you for speaking with us at African Hype.  What’s the first thing you hope new listeners feel when listening to your music?

I appreciate you for having me African Hype to do this interview. The first thing I hope new listeners feel when listening to Noble Barz music is a relatable connection that does not necessarily have to be with every song or with every verse or lyric but rather that there is at least a Noble Barz song, a verse, or lyric that each respective new listener can relate to or connect with whether it’s something in the past or present.

Discovering your own musical style is a unique part of every artist’s journey. What sets your music apart? What is unique, or at least uncommon?

Yes, I fully agree that it is important to find your own lane creative-wise that merges with your statement in discovering your own musical style as a unique part of the journey. I give kudos to my circle of musicians & producers that contributed to my current sound which is fundamentally hip-hop but with a touch of soul, reggae, island, jazz, with live instrumentation treatments when needed to add some warmth sonic wise to upcoming full- length projects one of them to come out first is entitled “T.S.I.R.”  people are about to hear in the not too distant future both the music and the meaning of that acronym for that particular body of work from Noble Barz. My personal approach to songs perspective-wise adds a uniqueness while complimenting through thought-provoking rhymes over a variety of feel -good arrangements produced by a talented pool of fellow Creatives. They also put their creative touches to make it stand out or set apart I believe so its all about the Teamwork that I was afforded to work with such men and women to do these dope records to be released.

“Fantasy” goes hard from start to finish. What was the inspiration behind the single?

I appreciate the kudos man for the single “Fantasy.” The story behind “Fantasy” produced by Hashaun Adderley and Darien Francis it actually came about after finishing some recording had some time to spare from one of my studio sessions working with Hashaun a frequent collaborator. We were listening to some arrangements & beats that Hashaun was working on and when that track to what you now hear  as “Fantasy” was played for the first time that light came on to me creatively I wrote to it & shortly after we record it no overthinking  the inspiration was spontaneous it was a simple and enjoyable process just seeing that track coming together Hashaun just added some soft keys to add an extra layer of melody and there you have it “Fantasy.”

What inspired you to start creating your own music?

LIFE and LOVE for the art as I believe that Creativity gives color to a variety of aspects to life itself and that is my artistic and poetic train of thought as Noble Barz.


If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be?

Any artist who operates within their own pocket creatively not limited to any particular genre but represent their art with integrity in their approach and sound their music speaks for itself consistently you don’t have to necessarily have a big name to be about your craft.

Where would you like to see your music career in 5 year’s time?

In five years in my music vehicle I want to continue to create whether in front or behind the scenes it is a release and a drive for me.

What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?

Believe in yourself when others may not believe in you. Believe in GOD and the gift He has given you but  it’s your responsibility  to stir it up and keep working on it if it’s by taking some time each day to work on an aspect of your craft  do it keep it sharp  and work towards getting better never settle for when or if the right opportunities come your way you can shine for the bigger purpose.
