Interview Section With Bentley BUGZ
If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be and why?
I would love to work with other talented artist especially the ones I grew up listening to like fabulous, jadakiss styles p max b hell rell.
What differentiates you from the next “wannabe” rapper?
What differentiates me from the next wanna be rapper is that I have my own style. Most other rappers follow trends like the deep voice or even just making drill music. That’s all some of these rappers can do I’m versatile and can get lyrical and still make a hit song.
How do you plan to breakthrough?
I plan to break through by being consistent and making nothing but fire music.
Difficulties of the come up?
Difficulties of the come up is definitely being self made and kicking in that door because it’s hard to do with no help.
