Check out this interview with Rapper, Pupp Barber.
Hustle Mill: In your own words, how would you describe a “Hustler”?
Pupp Barber: I would describe a hustler as a person who is relentless in accomplishing a set goal. A hustler to me is a person who will make things happen no matter what obstacles are thrown their way.
Hustle Mill: What is your hustle?
Pupp Barber: I consider myself to have several hustles. I have hustles that include monetary gain which include music, acting, writing and I’m beginning to get into fashion. My biggest and most challenging hustle is being a great father because that is a job in itself that is the most rewarding. I will let nothing stand in the way of being a great father and role model which goes back to my definition in the previous question when I stated that being relentless in whatever I am doing is a huge part of being a hustler.
Hustle Mill: What are some of the hustles you respect?
Pupp Barber: I respect every hustle unless it involves bringing harm to others. I believe there are enough ways and opportunities to make things happen for yourself in a positive manner to improve whatever situation a person might be in. I have the same respect for a manager at a fast food restaurant that I have for a CEO of a Fortune 500 company because it’s a hustle that helps them provide for their families and that’s what is most important about every persons hustle no matter what it is.
Hustle Mill: Getting to your music, and hustling, music is pretty much free these days. What are some ways artists can make money from their brand and music, and what are some of the ways you earn money from your art and brand if you don’t mind us prying?
Pupp Barber: With the music industry being the way it is today artist have to be more tangible and accessible to their fans in order to make money from their music. Social media platforms is a huge way to stay close to your fan base. The biggest attributer to me making money has been through doing shows and selling merchandise. I also have a few other things in the works that I will announce via my website very shortly.
Hustle Mill: Are there any particular times of the year that your music does better in? Which seasons?
Pupp Barber: I don’t usually focus on making music for a particular season because my goal is always to make timeless music. My goal every time I go into the studio is to make music to create a feeling no matter what time of the year it is.
Hustle Mill: What do you feel is the best way to get your music out there to the people?
Pupp Barber: I feel the best way to get music out is through the Internet and physically going out and promoting in every city that is possible for an artist to reach. Also a good supporting cast around an artist is a major part because it takes a lot of valuable assets in order to accomplish the main goal of getting the music out everywhere.
Hustle Mill: Do you plan on getting involved in any other parts of entertainment such as acting?
Pupp Barber: I definitely plan on getting involved with other parts of entertainment such as acting. It has always been a goal of mine to try acting. I enjoy and embrace new challenges and acting is a hustle I definitely plan to tackle in the near future.
Hustle Mill: What business plans do you have for you and your music?
Pupp Barber: My business plan is simple. Keep working hard and making the right moves that will benefit me and my music to the fullest. I would like the opportunity to work with mainstream artist so I can learn from them as well as producers. With the upcoming release of my album I plan to market to the fullest in order to earn the most return possible from my album and that includes getting more shows opening up for big time mainstream artist and so on and so forth.
Hustle Mill: What else would you like to tell the people?
