Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To give you my 100% in quality, effort, and writing.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creating and building towards a dope finalization of a song. A lot of amazing songs leave much mystery as to creative process that went behind. Some of the simplest sounding songs have the greatest detail involved in them.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That rap is simple or ignorant. It takes true talent to fit different records and not be boxed into one sound.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the direction of the song? What type of lyrics do you want from the rap? What is the expected turnaround time? Are you able to be immediately reached throughout the process for approvals?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A: ProTools 10, Neve 1290 (stereo), Custom dual Tube Pre, 1176 Compressor, and a great laptop!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been writing, recording, and releasing music since 1999. Music has always been my passion. I have recorded under two monikers in my career. Once, under the moniker Big Pawz and now under Brotha Julius. My career has mainly consisted of ghostwriting for many artist. I released 5 mixtapes under Big Pawz. This included work with Chalie Boy, Young Buck, & Bohagon to name a few. It also includes an unreleased album. As Brotha Julius, I have commercially released one album.

Q: Can you share one music production tip?

Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip Hop, R&B, Gospel, Spoken Word, EDM. However, i'm open to anything that I offer a successful fit to.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Writing would be my strength! No matter the subject. I can pen quality material for it.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring supreme quality when I am hired onto a song or project. We've all had those bad experiences as an artist where we do not feel we are taken seriously. Feeling as though someone does not care about our record(s) as much as we do. I NEVER take that approach when working on music for anyone. Taking the time to understand exactly what you need is the first step to my process. I strive with each song to be as captivating, original, and infectious as possible. All while maintaining the subject matter, direction, and style of the record.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Simply building around the idea provided to make a dope song. I typically write/record a rough edit for the client's approval of lyrics and delivery. I seek any changes that need to be made and make any edits if needed. Once the rough edit is approved then I proceed to recording the high quality final version for your record. I can provide either the full pro tools session or high quality vocal stems for mixing.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have two studio setups. One is for demo recording. Equipment includes: Audio-Technica AT2020USB PLUS Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone, Alesis M1 Active 320 USB | Full-Range Studio Monitor Desktop Speakers with Bass Boost, and AxcessAbles SF-101KIT SF-101 Recording Studio Microphone Isolation Shield w/Stand. I use this studio to give the client a rough edit of the lyrics written. This gives the client an exact idea of the direction. The second studio set up is for final recordings. This equipment includes: ProTools 10, Neve 1290 (stereo), Custom dual Tube Pre, 1176 Compressor, and more!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm usually inspired by creatives that have a love, passion, and seriousness applied to their craft. Music isn't a job to me. It's something that I truly love! I love navigating the process of finding all the pieces to crafting a fantastic record.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Writing is the most common type of work that I do for clients. Whether it is ghostwriting or actual feature work. I offer an eclectic writing style that can fit into pretty much any style of song.
