What’s going on Carolina Shine? Please introduce yourself to our readers.
I’m Carolina Shine from Morganton, North Carolina from aka the Mo, baccwoods living , hottest rising country rap star out of the carolinas.
Tell us about life growing up in North Carolina.
From the baccwoods of North Carolina opportunities are limited, doors get closed everyday, everything I have, I had to work and grind for. Why my motto is grind time, is Carolina shine time. It has beautiful scenery, lakes and mountains but trying to be successful from the mo, is not a common thing. Came from a single strict parent home, a lot of her attributes and work ethics and values are what I live by today. Responsibilities, love, and care and tackling adversity and never running from it.
How did music become your passion?
As a kid I had a talent for voice, and I was told I had the attributes to be a preacher. I grew up believing music was in my future and couldn’t cuss around my mom. I had to be creative with my style so I could do what I like and be around my mother. around my teenage years 12-13.
Describe your musical style.
Music style is unique and crafty, MR. Big south and i call it country hip hop/rap i consider it country tunes about country lifestyle with an upflow tempo rhythm style. Most country songs are more singing, My producer ATG added 808’s to the country tunes to be compatible with my sound and energy. I would like S/O Lecrae, Pimp C, Bow Wow, Nelly , Tim Mcgraw , Ace Hood, OutKast definitely can’t forget about the legends of the game 2 Pac and Biggie.
Tell our readers about your new single ‘Shine On Em’ and where it’s available.
Carolina Shine on em is a statement the song is about dominating your lane because the reason is Mr. Big South and the team and I knew the lane was open and challenging when i came out with the first song i wanted to make a statement that i am going to dominate my lane through hard work and grinding.I can’t look at other rappers and singers cause my lane is different and unique i’m here to dominate my lane and build my legacy in the country hip hop genre.
