Hey guys! I’ve finally found some time to finish this post and I’m super stoked about it! Tonight I am going to be sharing an interview I conducted with Adlib a few weeks back. This guy is super cool and actually reached out to me through Instagram because he once collaborated on a project with GTTC, another one of my former interviewees, and of course, I was happy to do the interview. So, here we go.
Q: Hey man! Tell them what is your real name is.
A: Hey guys, so my name is Jayden Hibshman, but as you know, I professionally go by Adlib.
Q: And where are you from?
A: I’m from Redding, PA.
Q: Cool so when and how did your interest in music begin?
A: I used to make YouTube videos and I just wanted to try something new because I was inspired, and found out I was actually good at it, so I started with a bad set up and some simple voice memos and with time I got a lot better.
Q: Is your experience with music hobby or career-based?
A: I would like to say its career-based because this is my passion.
Q: What would you consider your title to be?
A: I consider my title to be an artist not a rapper cause I can come out of no where with completely different genres.
Q:Yeah I can really related to that! So how many years of experience do you have total?
A: 2 and a half but taking it seriously its about 1 year almost 2.
Q: What are some of the biggest opportunities you’ve been presented with?
A: I actually haven’t had any major opportunities yet, but I hope it’ll happen soon.
Q: Who are some of your favorite artists?
A: Definitely Lil Uzi Vert but also X and Juice Wrld RIP.
Q: Juice Wrld and X are two of my favorites as well and I also listen to Lil Uzi Vert sometimes! So who would you consider to be your best connections in the industry?
A: My cousin Ashley’s boyfriend, he also does music and is very good at it, his name is kalebpierre, other than that I don’t really have connections.
Q: Do you have any music of your own you’d be willing to share with us?
A: yes I actually dropped an EP recently and this is the link https://soundcloud.com/jadlib615/sets/615a this is the SoundCloud one but its out on every platform.
Q: What advice or words of wisdom do you have for my readers as well as myself?
A: My advice to everyone is to always be you and to never give up, no matter what anyone says to you, it does not matter, no one can tell you u cant do something, you are a star and everyone is in their own way.
Q: Good advice! Also, I usually ask for maybe a few unrelated facts or any additional information you’d like to share!
A: I love to skateboard, I love to play Xbox all the time, and I can do a backflip.
Cool! Thanks so much Adlib! It sounds like you’re doing an awesome job and you’re really passionate about what you do so I’m confident you’ll be presented with an opportunity soon. But also, don’t wait for it to find you, make an opportunity for yourself. That’s kind of the whole reason I started this blog, to create an opportunity! Just some inspiration. But really thanks for reaching out to do the interview, it helps a lot and I can’t wait to talk with you again and maybe collaborate in the future!
