HHW: For those who aren’t familiar, who is Brutini?
Brutini: Brutini, is young artist from Brooklyn inspired by art, fashion and music. As student of the game, I’ve came across creating my own style and taste. As new recording artist, just tasted recording music last year 2019. I was convinced by my peers to finally get in the booth and record. Giving that I has a sense of creative and influence. I’ve received positive feedback. As, an artist I want my art and music to connect to the past and future. Representing two different era’s.
HHW: When did you first fall in love with music, and how long have you been actively pursuing your dreams of becoming a music artist?
Brutini: In the 3rd grade, when our class was instructed to recite a poem or lyrics from a song. The song was “A Dream” by Jay-Z & Faith, which I Then found out the original soundbie came from Juicy by The Notorious B.I.G . From there I would practice the lyrics to juicy over and over before I recited in front of the classroom.
HHW: What differentiates you from other artists?
Brutini: For me, ain’t no “Cappin” in these bars. My music represent my personal experience amongst with my closest friends. My music gives details on my insight, my style of fashion and how I converse with my peers daily. It’s amazing to me how the conversations I had with my friends years ago has transformed into music. The music is more heart felt when you make yourself vulnerable to express nothing but trues even if it may make me look bad. That’s one that about art, it’s flawless because it comes from conviction and mistakes you learned from. These components has made me a better person and even comfortable to share my life experiences to where I can even make music about it. Along with being bilingual coming from a haitian background.
HHW: Are there any artists currently or before you that musically inspire you? If so, who and why?
Brutini: Yes, Jay-Z, Sam Cooke, Cam’Ron, Andre 3000, Musiq SoulChild, Lil Wayne, Prince, Future , Sweet Micky, Zenglen.
HHW: What motivates Brutini both, in and out of the booth?
Brutini: My life experiences , my convictions, romance and my feelings that I’ve grown in past relationships. My music speaks on relationships with females as well besides art and fashion .
HHW: What are three things about you that would shock the public?
Brutini: Lol not sure on how to answer that question, As a Gemini I can shock myself. Now that I look back not too many things come as a shock lol Fun fact Biggie smalls once said a line Big up to my dawgs in the state penn, f*uck h*oes at penn state. At a young age i never understood those lyrics really. It’s crazy how the universe work in high school I had a sweater that said State Penn. it’s funny because me and other two friends had the same sweater. Low and behold years later we ended up going to Penn State. Believe it or not my sophomore year at Penn State. Biggies daughter ended up attending the school too. Probably will get butchered for this lol But even then it never resonated to me, that I would make music. So this one thing about life, laws of attraction. You attract what you think and do. So be wise with your actions and thinking. You become what you think of, even if it’s subconsciously done.
HHW: What do you feel you contribute to the culture as an artist, and what would you add to the industry?
Brutini: Versatile, being bilingual I haven’t seen an artist cross over from hip-hop to pop music and still have the same influence. I feel with my style being from Brooklyn, I can literally appeal to all markets without compromising my brand or authenticity. As I continue to build my craft. I want to bring a sound to the industry that people haven’t heard in long period of time. Wyclef was the last artist to have the same cultural background as me and become mainstream.
HHW: How do you balance your career with your home life? Family?
Brutini: It’s tough because there’s times when your family needs you, but being a zone I don’t want to break concentration. But family is more important. At times there’s things I want to talk about in music that’s going with my home & family life but I don’t want to jeopardize how my fault will view or treat me. Because music has become my therapy and outlet. Music has allowed me to turn negatives to positive. I can relate to Biggies Smalls more than ever now.
HHW: So what’s next for Brutini Muse musically? 2020 Goals?
Brutini: For Brutini, I want to release more music that will inspire the world and generations to Come. I want to release an debut project hopefully. Thus far, 2020 has tough due to covid-19. Yeah I could say yeah it’s everyday artist dream to sign to a major label. But with today’s day and age of independency. The do it yourself model has worked. But of course if the right situation comes along. I wouldn’t partnering up with like-mind individuals that’s see and understand the vision.
HHW: How can those looking to book you get in contact with you?
Brutini: You can contact my manager @capo_hq, and follow my Instagram pages @_tieyourlaces and @driplaces. I have two lol because each Instagram promotes different projects. I like to give each project I do it’s own identity.
