Interview w/ Fly Heavy Media (Keith Baker)
HOOD: What your focus for this calendar year [ Expansion / Networking / Artist Building]
FHM: This year I’m focusing on rebranding myself as an influencer and content creator. I'm bringing back @DaFlyZone which is a channel for the culture. It will feature everyone doing something fly for the Culture. I also started a new business doing Real Estate photography called Baker Estate Photography which has gone pretty well with no marketing. Oh and I also manage an artist @SMG.SWOE who is blowing up out the Midwest. We have some features lined up and a tour coming soon. So I’m going to ramp up on content and go hard.
HOOD: Tell us about your brand... What services do you provide?
FHM: Well... LOL... I have 4 brands now working on 3 more. But it’s pretty simple. I provide video or photo content for people and businesses.
HOOD: In your opinion what are 3 things an artist should value when it comes to their music/business?
FHM: First off I would say QUALITY!!!!! If your good but the quality sucks I’m definitely tuning out. That also goes for businesses. Second, the drive you have. Push out content and travel. I can’t respect an artist that wants to only be heard in their city. Lastly, Character is very important. I Like people who are real and I can relate to or that I can be entertained.
HOOD: Last Words to the HOOD?
FHM: I would like to thank you for the opportunity to be in your magazine. Anyone who would like to contact me follow @flyheavymedia @daflyzone @bakerestatephoto or @Smg.Fly. Also, follow my artist @Smg.Swoe. I have a lot of dope content coming and I’m looking forward to networking with a lot more people. Focus on building yourself up before you take on the world. The strength is at the core. Live for your purpose and life will bring you everything you deserve.
