Sharoyce, known in the industry at Da Woat, presents his latest single "WOAT Inferno." The Richmond, Indiana artist enlists A-F-R-O as a feature and producer on the track. Over captivating arrangements looped with classic cuts and scratches, Sharoyce delivers cut-throat wordplay to depict his industry takeover. His performance is one that both old and new schools of Hip Hop can grip onto, while the catchy hook resonates.

In the interview below, Sharoyce chops it up about the single, linking with A-F-R-O, the Hip Hop scene in Indiana, what's coming up next, and more. 

MJ: Before we jump right into your brand-new hit single "WOAT Inferno" introduce yourself to those who might not be familiar (shame on them).

Sharoyce: Tis all good. I'm still a baby out here. I'm Sharoyce a.k.a Da WOAT (acronym for "Wackest of All Time"). I’m trying to peddle my garbage to the masses one track at a time.

MJ: You are based out of Richmond, Indiana. Tell us about the Hip Hop scene there, I know each coast or city has its own flow and mantra.

Sharoyce: Richmond is a small community with roughly about 34,000 people in it. Everyone kind of knows everyone, so the communal rhythm is like that of the Heaven's Gate cult. I like the fact that the cost of living is so cheap, but the Hip Hop scene is non-existent.

MJ: You're not an up-and-coming artist, you are seasoned. Talk about that progression in your career.

Sharoyce: It's been pretty much a trial by error journey since I started jotting lines back in 2003. I bought a little Pro Tools set up back in 2009, where I cut my teeth on the ins-and-outs of the DAW. In 2012, I started to book sessions at professional studios. It took me some time, but I gradually learned how to construct a record over the years, but I'm still garbage.

MJ: Let's get down to the new single. Take us through the process from idea to creation to production to final canvas.

Sharoyce: I'd been listening to A-F-R-O since I caught wind of him back in 2014. The fact that one of the best rappers to ever grace the mic took him under his wing instantly sold me on the young guy. Over the years, I'd been reaching out to some of my favorite MCs for features and I decided to hit him up on IG. He showed love on the production (w/scratches) and he even laid a verse down for me. I swiftly laid my mumble rap down and sent the session files over to my engineer. 

MJ: Some Hip Hop legends coin A-F-R-O as an indie G.O.A.T, do you concur?

Sharoyce: For a legend, he's humble. All's I had to do was reach out to him on social media. I gave him his flowers and we proceeded to get the work done. He sent me back the verse in less than a few hours. 

MJ: What are your expectations for the single, and what can fans expect?

Sharoyce: I just want the fans to know that even a low-tier amateur such as myself isn't afraid to step on the track with the greatest. I expect to be crowned the worst to do it after they hear this one.

MJ: Is the single taken from a released project or one that is forthcoming? Will there be an upcoming video for the single?

Sharoyce: I have no plans of releasing an album anytime soon. A video isn't totally out of the question, but for now there are no plans for that either.

MJ: Where can fans and audiences catch you this summer? Are any performances or events, or collaborations in the works?

Sharoyce: They'll be able to catch me at open mics and events within the area. I have upcoming collabs with Big Rube (Dungeon Family/Society of Soul), Mark Battles, T-Rell (Empire), Honey-B-Sweet, Sadzilla, Rx The Rapper and many others. I'd like to work with Elzhi and Kool Keith as well, so I'm working on lining those two up too.

MJ: Before we wrap up, can you share three essential gems you live by to ensure your success continues to move forward?

Sharoyce:  Never be quick to modify your art due to criticism, drink lots of water, and don’t fall behind on child support because they’re locking n*ggas up for that.

MJ: Is there anything else you want to share with the world?

Sharoyce: Sharoyce is WOAT. You Betta know it, family. I'll be dropping new music on Bandcamp soon and you can be on the Lookout for Ghostface Monkeypaw w/ me and Copywrite, as well as RhymeTyme Freestyle w/ Houston's Viper The Rapper.
