Most have heard the music but who really is Maestro IV? Let's find out...

[feature]Maestro IV

Most have heard the music but who really is Maestro IV? Let's find out... 

Q-1 Who is Maestro IV & what does he represent?

Maestro IV is a hustler, an entrepreneur, an intellect, iJita, iphanda who also happens to have the gift of being able to play around with words and create rhymes born and bred in the streets of Pumula, koBulawayo.

I represent the struggle man, I come from the gutter bro, the sewer is my souvenir. It's not easy growing up Emakasana (In the projects) cause nothing is what most of us become cause that's what we were made to believe. I tell my story therefore telling the story of a million other ghetto citizens who wan make it out the trap.

Q-2 Interesting. It's not just investment into music. So out of all the genres, why "Hip-Hop"? Would you call it home?

Hip-hop is currently the most expressive type of music out there, it speaks to the youth, the world, for the youth. I have a story to tell, a picture that has to be painted vividly and Hip-hop is the only tool at my disposal, so it is home to me.

I may deviate a bit but Hip-hop is the core of all i do. This (is) more than rap shit, it's life to us...

Q-3 We've had the "TopJita EP",well accepted on the street & still is the talk today. How does it make you feel as a rapper?

I put in a lot of hard work, sweat and tears for that project to sound like it does, a lot of money and time was spent to come up with a relevant product, videos were shot, professional visuals put out so for it to be accepted and celebrated like its being right now is the greatest feeling ever cause it means it was worth the hard work.It would have been a disaster if a 16 track project would just go unnoticed lol, a traumatic experience cause you take such a leap with some kind of expectation as any artist you know.

Q-4 Any upcoming project(s) soon? How soon?

A sequel to TopJITA is almost done but when to drop it is now an issue as most of my colleagues say its wiser to let the TopJITA E.P first fade out. So right now I'm just going to continue pushing the project, drop a couple of singles and focus on collabos more. People have to hear the works.

Q-5 Speaking of collabos, do you have any upcoming (young) artists you admire?

Admire is a strong word lol but I believe in the ghetto child and I have created a whole movement C.M.G which is driven by my belief in the young talent in my hood and invests in a lot of artists on the come up who dare to believe in the dream. It's a spectrum of artists who have become a part of this movement but that might need to be a story for another day.

Q-6 When was the last time you performed & did you like the crowd?

Currently am in S.A putting in work and just last Friday was performing at Lagos Inn in Fourways, the response was crazy and will be putting up the footage on the tube. People really dig the music and I can't wait to perform the new material I've done this side back home.

Q-7 Say, in the next five years, where do you see yourself standing?

On the Top competing with legends, the future history has to place me in the same category as the Majaivanas, Fanyana Dubes, Solomon Skuzas and them for I don't make this for fun, I make this to make a difference...

Q-8 Do you have a favorite rapper(s) in Zimbabwe? Who are they?

mUnetsi, Mau Mau and King Pinn those are the greats and in the newer school Yung Tyran, Asaph and Guluva 7, they do good work.

Q-9 Best track you ever wrote & one you think is being underappreciated?

Windows definitely is the realest and deepest piece of art I've ever put out, last year towards Christmas was put on intensive care in a case of suspected poisoning and it was so bad even I had seen the end but a week later i recovered, I'd never seen my mom and my family cry like they did and the days i spent under made me reflect a lot and Windows was the first recording I made when I got home, there's no lie in there, just pure thoughts of a man who'd had an epiphany and I really wish Zim could stop and scrutinize the song coz it's more to it, it's a sculpture, its art.

Q-10 Any song(in ZimHipHop) you wish you owned?

Hahaha no not at all,to me there is always something missing,i guess it because I have my own design I feel should be followed to make Zim Hip-Hop.

Q-11 What's the best piece of advice you've been given so far?

Stay humble always, don't let ego stand in the way of what you are about to become.

Q-12 & what advice do you have for the upcoming artists

Talk is cheap, respect is earned, only the humble will learn the ways of the great. If you could run your mouth less on these whatsapp groups and stop thinking your teenage friends are the definition of real, you might learn something that will make you be taken as a serious artist.
