Charles on Track: I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m in the “music industry”. I’m an outsider, you know. I have no industry manager working with me, No industry team assisting my releases, and no industry label helping with my social media content. I’m independent and I do everything myself.
Getmybuzzup: How did you get started in the first place?
Charles on Track: I fell in love with the idea of releasing creative content around the age of 12. I use to listen to a lot of Odd Future and a little bit of A$AP Mob, only for the creative purposes though. I always use to rap for fun, I even did talent shows for my middle school. Now I audio engineer here and there and I’m just now deciding to create a Vlog Series for myself.
