Interview With Travis M.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Travis M.
Q: Travis, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
A: I have been writing songs since the fourth grade. I always had a fascination with poetry and lyrics. That was something in me that never went away. My sophomore year in high school, a friend of mine had an indie-funk band and he inspired me to pick up, rapping in a serious way which meant recording songs and performing live. This proposal came at a time of hardship for me when my mom and I were evicted from our home that I spent my early teen years in. That same year I performed in my first talent show and recorded my first mixtape.
That was ten years ago. Through my attendance at Grambling State University, I developed my craft as a spoken word artist. I remained determined, kept performing every chance I got, won a few talent shows and opened up for Young Thug.
