American rapper, ‘Just Call Me Veto’, said his brother was his inspiration to do rap music.
Speaking in an interview with DJ Slim on Hitz FM, the ‘Goodie Mobb’ rapper mentioned that rap music was something he had always wanted to do.
He also revealed that he grew up listening to rappers like Master P and loved the lifestyle that came with the craft.
He also mentioned that his brother wanted him to pursue another career and forget about rap. That, according to the Atlanta-based rapper fueled his urge to prove him wrong.
“My biggest inspiration to do music was my brother. The reason why I would say he is my biggest inspiration is that he did not want me to rap.
“It was something I always loved, and my brother was like ‘why do you want to rap? There are so many other things that you can do.’ I was good in school and very good with basketball as well,” he said on Daybreak Hitz.
The Been Through rapper also stated that his parents rather supported his decision to pursue music, therefore, they always supported him and gave him room to be himself
“My parents were all for it. They didn’t tell us what to do – allowing us the opportunity to be free and do the things that we loved. My dad just sent me a text before we came here.”
Just Call Me Veto, who is in Ghana for a promotional journey to promote his music said he recently started listening to African music.
He mentioned a couple of musicians he is currently listening to.
“I just started listening to Wizkid, Stonebwoy, Burna Boy and Lyrical Joe. Lyrical Joe just has the swag of an American artist. I am looking forward to meeting him and possibly creating some good music.”
