Who’s Up Next With Will Reeves


 

 

OL
Whats going on Will! Thanks for taking the time to chop it up!

Will Reeves
Already bro!

OL
Could you introduce yourself to whom may be reading this interview? Who is Will Reeves and what does he do?

Will Reeves
Ok so it’s Will Reeves, 18 Years Old, I love to make music! Its where my soul is! I can also rap and sing, but I decided to step down from it to pursue more in my producer era! Ive recently been added to Cobra Music Group with Joesphprielozny and Dirty Rice!

OL
Congrats compadre! May I ask how that came about? How did you meet the Cobra team and how did that relationship translate to the music? Shout out to Dirty Rice and Joesph P!

Will Reeves
Well I had collaborated with a local artist name Wxnder Y and his single “with you” dropped featuring Flo! And the next day I get a notification from Joseph P following me on twitter! And messeged me saying love your beats man! Keep it up ! And wanted to see what I can do with the sideways track front lead! So I cooked up something for about 20 min! And he loved it! So he told me he was going to see if he could get kb to do a new verse! And couple months later! The remix released! And we just been makin music ever since!

OL
Thats crazy Will! I’ll be real honest here, this situation would be any producers dream to come aboard a team like Cobra. This on a grand scale almost seems left field and unexpected…lot of producers may feel a certain type of way considering how young you are. How have you been handling the news?

Will Reeves
Its been exciting , been getting alot of concerns about it! And to know that there are a lot of people that actually care is amazing! Yes there are going to be people who may seem “jealous” but that shouldn’t stop you from pushing your dreams to be better! Sure there are people that are clearly better than me, I think its all about how hard you are willing to work.

OL
Thats good man, love your perspective on it! How did you get into making beats and how long have you been doing it for?

Will Reeves
It all started when I was 13, I got jealous of my brother because he was so good at it, so my uncle asked me if I could make beats as well, I lied and said yes. So he gave me a laptop in the kitchen where he was cleaning and my brother was in the studio. I couldnt think of anything! So he figured out why I lied lol because I was jealous…

OL
Why you jelly Will?! lol jk

Will Reeves
…So months and months I would work on my first beat! And I would never ask my brother for help either lol like we were in a competition lol but yea thats how it started…for about 4 years.

OL
A lot can happen within that time…whom have you worked with and who would be your musical influences?

Will Reeves
I mainly worked with myself till about two years ago, I would work with secular artist! Until I realized God’s plan, I worked with Yonos Music, then Wxnder Y, Flo, Threat,
My influences are my uncle, J nathan, Brother, God most of all! And my favorite engineer! Mixamill! Aka Kashif Smith !

OL
What do you use to make em bangers? Any hardware or midi controllers?

Will Reeves
Oh Fl studio, and my favorite Rascal and Noir Sound kits! Lol
Nope, well just midi keyboard lol and m audio monitors.

OL
Every producer has a certain way how they tackle making a track…whats your process in the studio?

Will Reeves
It depends for me, Ill start with drums if Im feelin good, or sounds if Im feelin bad lol, its weird but it works for me! I like to also make beats according to how I feel…

OL
Are there any artists on your radar who you wish to work with or would like to work with?

Will Reeves
I would love to work with Lecrae mos def! John Givez, Derek Minor, and Trip Lee…if I could work with them! Id be set lol But still not gonna stop the grind!

OL
Alrighty Will, is there any nuggets you can share about the future with Cobra or yourself with your own projects? Whats in store for ya later later?

Will Reeves
Well COBRA plans on takin ova! Lol But just be ready for alot of good music to come from my team! And I dont plan on doing anything of my own until next year actually.

OL
Alrighty Will, congrats and hope nothing but the best for ya and your sqaud! Thanks for taking the time to do this! Grace and peace!

Will Reeves
