Today we are chilling it with a new up and coming rapper named Daytime Action.
HipHopLEAD: That is an interesting name. For starts where did the name come from?
Daytime Action: DAYTIME ACTION IS A STREET TERM MEANING THAT ANYTHING CAN GO DOWN DURING THE DAYTIME HOURS AND I WAS ALWAYSTAUGHT WHAT YOU DO IN DARK ALWAYS WILL COME TO THE LIGHT, SO INSTEAD OF USING MY ORIGINAL STREET NAME I USED A NAME THAT WOULD DESCRIBE MY ATTITUDE AND ACTIONS IN THIS RAP GAME READY FOR WHAT EVER
HipHopLEAD: You have been associated with alot of different states and cities in the US. So we want to know where are you reppin?
Daytime Action: I’M REPPIN A LOT A DIFFERENT PLACES I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN UTICA, NY, IM A TERRACE BOY, BUT I LIVED IN A LOT OF PLACES SO I REP FOR THE CITIES WHERE I MET A LOT OF REAL DUDES FROM ROCHESTER NY,SYRACUSE NY, PROV RI. WHATS UP TO MY CLOWN TOWN CHAD BROWN PEOPLE,I LIVED IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT CITIES, FLORIDA FOR OVER A DECADE. SHOUT OUT TO MY PANAMA CITY, FL HOMIES NAZT N BLAZE PRODUCTIONZ ,THAT MAKES MOSTLY ALL MY BEATS. I GUESS YOU WOULD SAY THIS WHOLE NORTH EASTERN COAST NY TO FLA.
HipHopLEAD: What made you wanna get into HipHop?
Daytime Action: I ALWAYS WANTED TO GET INTO THIS GAME BUT I’LL ALWAYS BEEN PRE OCCUPIED AND NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO SIT DOWN AND REALLY TRY TO PUT MY ALL INTO IT BUT RECENTLY MY LUCK RAN OUT AND I’VE BEEN FORCED TO SIT MY BLACK ASS DOWN (AS MY POPS BOBBY SPRATT R.I.P ALWAYS TOLD ME). I ALWAYS WROTE RHYMES BUT NEVER DID ANYTHING WITH THEM UNTIL RECENTLY AND IT SEEMS TO BE GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION LESS THAN A YEAR OF WORKING AND I GOT AN INTERVIEW ON HIPHOPLEAD!
HipHopLEAD: Who were your influences to get into music?
BOOT CAMP CLICK, M.O.P, CNN, CORMEGA, MOBB DEEP, TRICK DADDY, BG, JEEZY, LA DA DARKMAN, ITS TOO MANY TO SAY.
HipHopLEAD: Alot of people say the majority of the rappers in the South are not lyrical. After listening to “Jack Boyz”, and a few other records its apparent that quality lyrics are important to you. What makes you not want to not dumb it down?
Daytime Action: I WRITE ABOUT THINGS I DID OR BEEN AROUND, SO I CANT WRITE NO DUMB SHIT THAT’S NOT ME AT ALL. BUT THE SOUTH HAS LYRICAL RAPPERS JUST LIKE UP TOP HAS WACK RAPPERS. I WANT TO BE AS NICE AS THE MC I LISTEN TO. THAT DUMB SHIT DON’T GETS NO PLAY IN MY RIDE. EVERYBODY GOTS THEIR OWN THING SO AS A MAN IF THAT DUMB DOWNED AS YOU CALL IT IS FEEDING FAMILIES AND KEEPING OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS OFF THE STREETS AND OUT OF JAIL……. IM ALL FOR IT.
