Let’s talk about how you began. Was there a reason why you chose the name the stage name Church Boy Blue?
I started rapping when I was 12 years old starting off with different rap groups and such. After while I went solo and called myself Church Boy Blue. Church Boy Blue originated from the nursery rhyme “Little Boy Blue” if you’ve heard of it, but instead it’s the black sheep I’m tending too and I’m wide awake.
Where are you currently based? What do you think of your town in terms of the music scene?
Salisbury, MD (Though Snow Hill, MD is where my heart is). The music scene in Salisbury is not real big like the way it was back in the day. Though people listen to various types of music Hip Hop still dominates from time to time.
What’s your favorite song you have ever written and why?
I really don’t have a favorite song. I love them all. I wouldn’t dare put out music that I don’t really like or feel uncomfortable with.
I love being creative and doing different thing’s, so like I said don’t expect the next mixtape or anything I do to sound like the last.
Do you play any instruments?
What was your experience like when you first put out your very first mixtape/album?
Though I was confident I was also little nervous putting out my first mixtape, I didn’t really know what to expect I mean at first I was gonna put out an EP but after writing a whole bunch of songs trying to pick the right ones for the EP, I gave up and finally used them all and called it a mixtape.
Do you ever go back to your early work and kind of feel like you wanna re-write / re-make some of them?
Sometimes “yes” most of the time “no” I always like moving on to the next project always trying something different.
I always write according to how I feel.
Your new mixtape is coming out this month. What can you tell us about it?
It’s called “Bird Caught In A Plane Turbine” I kinda spaz out a little but in a mellow way on this tape. I always write according to how I feel so I hope my 2 fans won’t expect this mixtape to be like the last one.
Is there any collaboration involved in the mixtape?
Never, besides the producers who made the beat’s whose name’s will be mentioned in the credits.
How challenging was it to produce this mixtape on a scale of 1-10 and why?
Always a 10 because I love a challenge when it comes to making music, I love being creative and doing different thing’s, so like I said don’t expect the next mixtape or anything I do (mixtapes, albums, ep’s etc) to sound like the last. This mixtape is not like the other mixtape’s I’ve made I’m just getting it out of the way so I can say been there done that and move on.
What do you want the audience to take away from your new mixtape?
The creativity, and the traditional sound mixed with a little bit of new school, take in as much as you can because the message, sound, and style on the next one will be COMPLETELY DIFFERENT I guarantee it.
I listened to your track “Black Man Can’t Jump”. What was the driving force behind that one?
It was an idea and somewhat of a belief involving my experience over the year’s in life and my belief in the way the world is run spiritually, we all must be spiritually conscious as well as socially conscious.

Do you plan on releasing new music videos?

What’s next for Church Blue Boy?
Flooding the world with more and more music, who know’s where it might take me.
