Hey whatsup guys… I’m doing well. First and foremost, I’d like to thank u guys for interviewing me and taking the time to get to know about B. Lansky and my team.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Talk Of The Town”?
I linked with a few local influencers and artists in miami and we put together that song at my place about 4 months ago. We had a dope idea for a video and put it together pretty quickly actually. To be honest, I’m very focused on the music I’m presently working on with my squad and I know for a fact I could’ve given more on that album.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Not really. It happened organically after a party in miami and we just jumped on a beat together and wala. Magic!
How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
It was a lot of fun but at the end of the day…. Again, I’m very focused on my new music and extremely excited about the music we are working on presently. It’s almost like I’m rebranding my whole sound and taking my music to a level I’ve always known I been capable of reaching.
The single comes off your new album Round Table – what’s the story behind the title?
My name. B. Lansky. Comes from Meyer Lansky, the old Jewish gangster. B. Lansky is actually a name that Hell Rell called me on the intro of a song we never used from awhile ago and it just stuck with me at first but then I did my research and realized how big of a Boss that Meyer Lansky really was. Plus he was Jewish… I’m Jewish so it works. Anyone that wants to pull up a chair with me, needs to be able to bring something to the round table.
How was the recording and writing process?
Heaven and hell depending on the day. Went thru a lot and learned probably too much for my own good about the ins and out of the industry and how people like to move…. Making me a shark at least. I feel like at this point in my career every day is a learning experience and I’m growing to become the man I was destined to be thru all the highs and lows.
What role does NYC play in your music?
Everything. If it wasn’t for the first studio I ever went to in south Bronx none of this would’ve happened. I became very close with the owner over at the Zoo Studios and when he ran into some financial troubles I took over as owner and moved the location to 144 and st Anns in east tremont. It wasn’t so successful but it kick started my career and put me in touch with all the right people that I needed around me in order to push myself as an artist.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than working on your own?
Not at all. I take every verse and hook just as seriously if not more than my last. I’m trying to grow and better myself as a writer and artist everyday and if I don’t continue to push myself and go harder on every song I touch then I will never be able to excel to the top.
What would you say you have learned from your experience working with others?
Love from a far and Trust myself. Next.
Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
Jay Z paved the way for New York so he’s second to none on my list. I could get into the politics of my top 5 and even my top 10 but at the end of the day I’m bars over everything. A lot of this new age stuff is too dumbed down for me and it takes a lot for me to really sit and really enjoy most of it. If there’s one thing I could do for hip hip before I leave it’s bring real hip hop bars and wisdom back to help mold the next generations of rappers.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes but I gotta keep that on the hush for right now. Announcements will be made via my social media in the next few weeks. Although I can tell you A lot of exciting and crazy leaps coming soon.
What else is happening next in B.Lansky’s world?
I’m Working on a new project with Baby Wock, Ohtrapstar, and Eugenics that I honestly believe will take my career to the next plateau. Appreciate you for having me for this interview. You can check me out on IG @B.Lansky23. God bless and get money.
