Exclusive interview with Stackboi Tank – Rising hiphop artist from Detroit

As we all know you are known as Stackboi Tank which is quite a unique display name. How did you find it?

Almost 10 years ago, I formed a band with “The Real Stackboiz” which included all of my closest friends and family. We had a great time together playing music at many concerts.

But over time, we all minded our own business. So to continue this legacy, I opted for the brand name “Stackboi Reservoir” connect with people who were already fans of my group and new ones.

Where are you from and how was your early childhood?

Alright, I’m from the city of Detroit, Michigan. I’ve spent my whole life here but would definitely leave if it was for a career change.

My early childhood wasn’t full of luxury and comfort, but I was always grateful for what I had. And I guess that’s the only way you can achieve peace and quiet in your life.

When exactly in your life did you decide to make music your career?

When I left school, I knew I wasn’t the type to take on boring corporate jobs. And since childhood, I had a soft spot for music that no one else understood at the time.

The birth of my daughter also played a huge role in aligning my life. For the first time in my life, I felt the burden of responsibility on my shoulders, and since then music has been my preferred option to pay my bills.

How would you describe your family life? And how did that help you become who you are today?

I am an extremely family oriented person. I always wanted to make my parents and siblings proud and happy.

Since having my children, a little boy and a girl, I have become even more motivated than before. They really have my heart.

Whenever I feel down or sad, I look at them and all the stress goes away. I think I have been blessed with two beautiful angels.

Stackboi Tank with Music Magazine

Who are your role models in the music industry that have deeply inspired you?

Like everyone else, I look up to Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Future and Hot Boys.

How has your journey on YouTube been so far?

YouTube’s environment is quite competitive; even then, my albums have reached millions of views so far. It is one of my most important achievements and has brought me a lot of monetary gains.

I would suggest all my fellow HipHop music artists to have their YouTube channels. It will also serve as a portfolio for future projects.

Was there a turning point that changed your outlook on life?

Like everyone else, I had a drastic turning point in my life when one of my closest friends passed away in his hometown. Someone brutally murdered him in 2016, and we still can’t believe it.

This incident made me realize that life is too short to worry about ordinary jobs and that we must continuously pursue our passions to achieve our life goals.

Do you enjoy collaborating with your fellow artists?

Yes! I believe in collaboration because it helps you broaden your horizons. So far I have collaborated with Rio Da Yung OG, FMB Dz and Payroll Giovanni.

All these collaborations have been a success and appreciated by many. I look forward to a lot of things in the future, but I can’t say much about it.

What advice would you like to give to budding HipHop music artists?

Believing in yourself is the way to go! You need to have firm faith in your skills and creative abilities to excel in your musical journey, which may seem complicated at first, but it will be worth it.

In many of your interviews, you usually ask people to never give up. How do you expect budding musical artists to deal with their failures?

Never giving up is the only way to survive in the competitive music industry. You may face many setbacks and failures, but getting up and trying again is the only way to success.

How can fans find you?

You can find my music on Spotify and Apple Music. Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter too!
