I’m Roadman Cash, and I’m a French beatmaker (it’s been 2 years now). I always had listened to music, and I always wondered how a beat was made. One day I tried FL Studio back in middle school, but I didn’t speak English well. I didn’t get a thing about music, and I wasn’t that motivated, so I gave off.
Then I went to University and met Elias, a very close friend. He made me want to produce music again immediately. I was listening to his beats, and then I thought “why not me though?” So I re-installed FL Studio and that’s where it really has begun.
I always wondered what can I do in my life. Right now I’m focusing on producing music, but I got a lot of projects that I plan to finish later in the future. Music always fascinated me. I’m not only focused on an only universe because nowadays with the tons of opportunities that we got it could be too dangerous to miss something.
My influences are Skepta, Gucci Mane, A$AP MOB, J Cole, Kendrick, 88GLAM, Gunna, Lil Baby, Dosseh (my favourite artist at the moment), Joke, Damso, Ninho, Kavinsky. I could go on forever.
In my opinion, the difference between the two is the language. It depends on what you seek for, a native French who’s listening to US rap principally focuses on the flow. Whatever the artist says in the song, it just needs to be catchy.
Same thing with the French scene but as a native French speaker I think the lyrics need to be more meaningful. Urban pop is mainstream. That’s what French people needs.
Honestly, I’m not that much interested in saying anything. I think he’s not dedicated to his country. But yeah, it could be worse.
Fashion is my motto. I am always searching for a unique piece. I do practice combat sport, and I like playing video games in my free time.
Here’s the trick. The more we grow up, the more difficult it gets to manage our time. We get outdated by our own responsibilities. We must begin now, to hustle again, again and again, devoting our little time to our families and to my beats in order to save money and time for myself later.
Too many parameters to give. The biggest obstacle would be “If I wanna make it I have to devote myself to 100%.” That would be the most significant sacrifice in my opinion.
I don’t sell my beats yet. For the moment it’s all about social media and words of mouth.
I’m in part of couple groups. Friends, friends of friends, or strangers. It allows us to grow together, make collabs, discover other points of views which are essential for improvements. Plus it helps me stay focused and motivated.
Yes indeed. My Komplet kinkin. I’ve waited a long time to get it. It made me hesitate a lot before buying it, and then I bought it. Best investment ever this year. I also use the best VST plugins for hip hop, so my music is fantastic.
For the ones who are still scared to make it to another step, just don’t be scared whatever software you’re on. Whatever your English knowledge level. You have to hype yourself, spend a whole day on it, try to learn things step by step, try to determine how the whole thing work by trying new parameters. Failing means knowing more about something.
Social Media For The Win!
