Saint is the complete opposite of Raphael, his government name. Saint’s the relentless side of Raphael, a little more outspoken a little more aggressive and a little more eager! Any time he’s in the studio recording, writing, mixing promoting...anything dealing with the art of music or even just being around it…..THAT’S SAINT!!.....Ask any artist that question everyone wants to be perceived as GREAT….Be that ICON artist….He’d love that but as long as his fans perceive him as that attachment to them then I’m good. He is 27 years old. He has 3 projects. His latest project NOTHING LEFT 2 PROVE (NL2P) EP is out now you can go Download it and listen to it on SoundCloud. He has been doing music on a serious level for about 4 years now, but he’s always known at a very young age that he would have a career in music jus wasn’t exactly sure on what he’d be doing. His interests of course music, huge passion for motorcycles, dirt bike, 4wheelers. He has a fetish with food. When it comes to food he is greedy. He loves to eat. Although he is small, he has a big appetite. He also love bowling, he says “that’s like my secret hobby its not something I do all the time but when I do I’m excited about it!...it’s fun...if you use bumpers you can’t bowl with me”
Tell me about the process of making “swing my way”
The process of SWING MY WAY 1st off shout out to my producer JUNE very dope and talented guy! I remember talking to June and telling him the direction I wanted to go for the next project (NOTHING LEFT 2 PROVE #NL2P) and we discussed doing an upbeat kind of party record and a few days later the beat was in my email…..it took me a minute to sit with the record before I actually put the lyrics down... I was on and off with it for about a month or so maybe. Not because it was a bad record...I knew I had something great on my hands I just had to feel the approach….moments later the hook sort of came I had the melody in my head while just driving around listening to it in my car then I kind of fill in the blanks lol...so the hook was 1st and that’s NOT how I always write my records it just depends but the hook came 1st then the verses just flowed easily and there you have it...SWING MY WAY!! Which will be the #1 record in the country in about a year and a half maybe 2….And believe I have more up my sleeve so by the time that record really takes off…..YEA!!! Lol you’ll know SAINT
