Since is recent signing to Maybach music we wanted to revisit our interview with him here is the feature………



This month’s feature is with someone who is ready to prove when it comes to Hip-Hop he is definitely first in flight Rain……

Mistajay: What area are you reppin?

RAIN: Fayetteville, North Carolina

Mistajay: What are your influences of your music? And what inspires you?

RAIN: My musical influences ranges from 2Pac all the way to Willie Hutch. I have a very wide range of musical influences. I am inspired by my drive to reach greatness. I don’t feel like I have reached my peak musically. Knowing that somewhere deep down I have classic material inside that can be released with practice and dedication keeps me inspired.

Mistajay: How do you describe your style?

RAIN: Vivid. Very real and cinematic.

Mistajay: What is your best song recorded to date and why?

RAIN: I have no clue. Its changes all the time. I really love “Lady in a Red Dress” from American Dreamin 2.

Mistajay: If you could share the stage with any 3 artists or bands who are still around and touring, who would they be and why?

RAIN: Stevie Wonder, The Roots and Lauryn Hill.

Mistajay: Where do you see the hip hop going in 2011? How do you see yourself fitting into that? What do you think the future of Fayetteville and NC Hip Hop is?

RAIN: Hip Hop is so strange. It evolved so fast and extremely frequently. I’m not sure where it is going, I just hope I am around to enjoy the ride. Hopefully I will become a main figure in the culture. If I am there, Fayetteville will be there also.

Mistajay: Your Bio states that you are to release your first retail project through First in Flight/Hoopla/Universal there where reported rumors that you have been flying back and forth to LA and possibly in talks with Aftermath is there anything you would want to break here or clear up?

RAIN: Time will tell. We will soon see how everything plays out.

Mistajay: 9th wonder recently had a write up about Hip Hop in NC and one of the main points where that the competition was outside the state and not within basically saying that we need to support are own as artists and develop your brand what are your thoughts about this as well as your own advice for indy artists and fans alike?

RAIN: I don’t want to comment on the 9th Wonder statement because I didn’t see that for myself but I do feel like there is competition everywhere including inside of NC. Never sleep on anyone. You never know what they are cooking up. My advice is to stay focus, be original and give it all you have.

Mistajay: What are your future plans?

RAIN: Releasing more music and introducing new talent.

Mistajay: Any last thoughts?

RAIN: Thank you! First In Flight for life. Live free or die!

Mistajay: Where can fans follow you and get your music?
