Michigan Rapper Delirium Is Chasing His Dreams

Hip hop artist and producer from Ionia Michigan — Delirium — has been involved with music since 16-years old. Just last year he decided to take a shot at a career in the industry and self-produce an EP. Since then, he’s recorded two full-length albums and close to 100 original songs, features, and remixes. 
He recently took some time to chat with us and take our world famous AAHH Q&A — check out his answers below.

Tell me about your music — describe your sound. 

It can range anywhere from uplifting to dark to extremely personal. I tend to try and make every album as unique as possible, with a few r&b jams and some songs that are just bars throughout. If I had to describe it, I would say it’s Dre and Kanye Production meets Kendrick Flow, J Cole message, and Eminem attitude. But to me, I’m just me. Personally I think my style is something no one else is doing.

How did you get involved in music? 

I started as a metal musician, I was signed to a small label back in the day and just never loved the genre as much as I love hip-hop. When I put out my first CD, I fell in love with the scene and have never looked back. 

Who/what were some of your influences?

Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Dr.Dre, Jay-Z, Kanye West, J Cole, NWA, Drake, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Biggie, and Pac.

What have you released?

So far, an EP called The Delirium EP and a full-length, Identity Crisis.

What are you currently working on?

My next full-length, Universal Karma. A lot of features and some work with a label that I’ll be announcing soon.

What have been some of your biggest achievements thus far? 

Just playing with some big artists on stage and being a part of a great scene. I’ve been in the game for only a year and have seen so much progress; I’m hoping to see a lot more sucsess in the coming years. Accolades mean little to me, I crave respect.

What are your goals in the industry? 

To be the best rapper I can be. Reach out to people who can relate to my music and hopefully make new fans along the way. Eventually, I want to be touring worldwide, Selling millions of CDs, and loving it while I’m doing it. I have high goals, and I hope to meet them all one day.

What’s next for you, professionally?

Finding the right label for me. I love being independent no doubt, but the idea of working with a team of promoters sounds good to me. I love making music; I’m not so much a fan of the promotion end, but You gotta do what you gotta do to survive in the Game.
