Double Cin Magazine: Let’s start this off by telling everyone who you are…
Pace: Wassup my name is Pace, currently with S.O.G. (SHOW OUT GANG ) Im a artist that currently stay in Cincinnati, OH. im 17 years old and trying to make it in the music world.
How did you start getting into the game?
In the 6th grade i was in school and there was another artist that was the top dog, i just challenged him and won. im still cool with him till this day. a lot people start wanting to hear more and told me i should really try and do music and went from there.
Would that be anyone we may know?
Umm you might know him, he go by Marlew. i have a couple songs with him, “what you in it for,” he is a solo artist that i respect no matter what and hope he do something big that would get his name out there more.
How and why did you choose to hook up with S.O.G.?
One day my boy Kemon ask me to join his group called “S.W.A.T.T. Boys,” i was just not feeling the name in so many ways lol. I wanted to join groups that already had a name like HBK, YBG, and CX3, but also wanted to start from the ground up, so when he changed the group to S.O.G. i was all with it.
So how did you come up with the name Pace?
OK lol… So many think because my pace high, but wrong… old people with heart problems need a pacemaker, so if people didnt have my music they would have heart problems, ha which made me come up with Young Pace.
If you weren’t a rapper, what would you be doing?
Playing games all day, eating chips. Ha. But na, i think i would be doing tats or artwork at least, im a very good artist.
So are you planning on going to college to advance your design skills? Or are you gonna concentrate on your music career?
Im focused on my music at the time. My goal is to see where i am 2 years from now with music, if not good then move to something else. Life too short to be stuck on a train track with no train to go on it.
Who are some of your musical influences?
Most people would never mix my influences but Kanye West, Cassidy, Julez Santana, Mac Miller. I think i like them most because all have they own flo and i tend to flo like em sometimes.
What other Cincinnati artists have you worked with, would like to work with?
That i have: Young Josh (B.C.E.), Louie V (B.C.E.). Have not work with a lot of artist outside of S.O.G… but future features should be Lil Bagz (HBK), A.R (A.R.E), Bodie (YOUNG BLOCK BOYS), thats about all who i plain on hooping on track with but if someone show me a good track i would be cool with giving em a 16, 12 , or 8.
Did you perform at the SWAAGG the Vote show?
Ha yes sir i did. They was feeling us 2, i really shouldn’t say it, but WHO CARES, i was performing in Aqua at 17 years old ha #swagg
Do you have any more performance plans? New releases?
Yes, Nov 6th in Cleveland. My mixtape on 11-11-11 Sex, Money, Drugs hosted by S.O.G. D.J. Lv.
That track you did “Pacquaio,” was that a response to A.R.’s “Mayweather”? Or did you guys plan on coming out with separate tracks, and having people choose a winner?
We planned it. i got the word he was making ”Mayfeather” and i already wrote the song ”Pacquaio” so i told him we should promo it as a song battle and he was down with it. i respect him in all ways as a artist 2, i listen to both our songs tell this day. ha.
So, was there a winner? According to our site, you had twice as many votes!
Views, he won hands down and i respect that; but i see it as 2 artist doing something people should get going out there way with their music, doing something people never done; but votes on the web i think im winning lol.
What is your favorite thing to do in Cincinnati?
Get inkkyy and chill with S.O.G., i love to go eat Chipotle also. i dont do too much, i stay low key.
