This is Flight Control.
This man needs no introduction. 2 time CM Award winner, recording artist, business owner, songwriter, 919 representer. Who I’m talking about is no other than the Infinite one, Flowz Infinite, My brother from another mother, Group mate, business partner and friend. I met Flowz back in the raplord.com days. It was something about his flow that impressed me, that was close to ten years ago since then we have formed a super bond. I would describe him as a friend who became family. If you haven’t checked out his music I would suggest you do so asap. A few years back I had the pleasure of hosting his Flight Control mixtape, That was pretty dope, being asked to host the project. It’s mutual respect. I’ve seen his growth over the years his work ethic and determination drive and inspires me. So for those unfamiliar, he’s @flowzinfinite on social media. Team Collective representer, and owner of numerous businesses. So without any further a due let’s jump right into and see what’s up with the Big Homie, what he’s been up to, and what he has coming up in the future. Sit back and strap in and welcome to Flight Control
What first got you into music?
I wrote a poem about cleaning up the litter of the world in the 4th grade. My teacher published the poem in the school newspaper. I kept writing poetry. In the 6th grade, my homies from the block started rhyming. I sat back and watched for 2 years before I was brave enough to spit what I had written to my homies. My homie Third and Brahm gave me big credit, saying I’m probably going to be the nicest one out of all of them. I didn’t believe them but took that confidence and kept going.
Who inspired you to make music?
My homies on the block plus artists like 2pac, Nas, Fugees, Buju Banton, and some other artists really inspired me to make music at a young age. I felt I could do what they did but better.
How would you describe the music that you typically create?
It’s infinite. The beats talk to me. Depending on the vibe I’m on I may be looking for a certain type of beat, but that genre ranges from hip hop to reggae, to rock, to old school, to new school, Drake, Kanye, but still listen to Mos Def and LL Cool J. My range is I love good music.
What is your creative process like?
My optimal creative space would be early morning, lighting up, listening to the beat while I fall into it. Let it talk to me. Find the flow. That’s the most important part. Which flow can I create depending on the cadence of the beat, Then think of metaphors to make you think while I rhyme about a topic.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
J. Cole. I respect what he has done for NC and his style and the way he approaches his beats are similar to my mental state.
If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
Drake, because the ladies definitely will be in the building!
What is one message you would give to your fans?
Live every day, be a leader, and help those who are less fortunate than you.
What is the most useless talent you have?
I can cut hair, but only my hair. I will mess your hairline up!!
Do you sing in the shower?
Anything crazy…like when Eddie Murphy was singing To Be Loved in Coming to America, or the songs playing on Madden when I turn it off. You don’t smoke dog you don’t want problems lol.
What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
Basketball if I put what I put into music.
