Hi Semaj The Poet! How are you?
I am blessed beautiful and ready to make the world feel good through good vibes.
Where are you from?
What is your greatest inspiration for your music?
My Mother, she always believed in me. And my Family. And Anime lol
What are 3 words that describe your music?
Different. Stylish. Groovy.
What is the hardest subject you’ve ever written about?
My Mother, I just wrote a song called “flor de licor” that was for her. It is very therapeutic for me. I still cry when I listen to it.
What are the challenges of being an artist?
The biggest challenge for me isn’t the “haters” and proving people wrong. Its pulling my thoughts and melodies out of my head and bringing them into the physical realm to exist and breath and live.
Are you planning on releasing new music soon?
Yes! I am releasing my new album, “The Blue Door,” on September 1st. I’m also dropping a video and track called “Tired of Hearing Sorry”. It is about the ongoing and unchecked social injustices we experience in this country. It’s written from the perspective of a love song of the citizens of the United States, especially the African American community, being in an abusive relationship with America. I’m very proud of the entire project.
