Daily Inspiration: Meet Street Scott

Today we’d like to introduce you to Street Scott.

Hi Street, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I grew up in West Baltimore, MD. I started making music at 17 but I’ve always had a deep love for music. Growing up, I would be exposed to all genres of music. From N.W.A, ATibeCalledQuest, Slum Village to Prince, Steely Dan, and tons of other stuff. I stumbled on making beats when one of my best friends, Exo let me borrow his MTV music generator disc.

A PS one game from 20 years ago, lol. I made my first horrible beat and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve always carried a passion and obsession to be better than I was the day before. So starting from the PlayStation and FL Studio to teaching myself how to play instruments has been an amazing journey.

I really love making music and I’ve told been told that it shows. My goal is to inspire people of all ages from my culture and background to be creatively brave. Just because you come from a certain place, it should never dictate the kind of music you want to make.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
What I’ve learned is that the process to be great is never-ending. It’s something that happens every day if you immerse yourself in it. I was blessed to be able to produce for some industry artists early on in my career. I’ve seen all the highs and lows that this life can offer but the biggest challenge was trying to figure out where I fit in this music world without conforming to being anything other than myself.

Musically, I’ve always been a forward thinker and sometimes I find myself a little too far ahead lol. I had to figure out what I really wanted to contribute and what I wanted to receive from this world. All while raising my son and handling life’s constant changes.

Now, I’ve reached a place where I don’t desire fame and only care about the love that I put into my art. I’m ALWAYS working to be better at my craft.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m a producer first but I also sing, rap, DJ, engineer, mix and write for other artists I am a self-taught, multi-instrumentalist. I specialize in consistency and the ability to create many different styles of music.

I’m known for producing for artists like Max B, Jadakiss, Jim Jones, and other industry acts but I’ve also made amazing music with great artists from my hometown as well. I’m most proud of my longevity and still being able to reach multiple generations with my music. I’m actually releasing my first jazz album called “The Black Casper Project”.

What sets me apart is my passion. I’m comfortable with making myself uncomfortable by always pushing myself. I REALLY love music and I still approach creating with the same intensity today as I did when I first started out. Do what you love.

The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
I really learned to bet on myself. The crisis actually slowed things down so we could have time to figure some things in our life out. I tried to spend that time of peace wisely and decided to put myself out there a little more.

I’ve been mostly guarded and introverted most of my career. It helped me learn how to be more comfortable in this social media-driven era.

I’ve battled with depression and trauma most of my life and through the crisis, I’ve learned to appreciate the life I was blessed with because the world could drastically change at any moment.
