keep­ing it real


SHAK­ING UP the lo­cal mu­sic scene is rap artist, Mito Fa­bie, or more rhymes pack a lyri­cal punch, and both his mu­sic and per­son­al­ity have caught the at­ten­tion of many.

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with San Miguel Pale Pilsen, Cur­ti­smith brings another fresh new tune for his fans with his song en­ti­tled, Am­bi­tion. Cur­ti­smith is known for pour­ing his heart out into his songs, and he does just that with Am­bi­tion. This song talks about his strug­gles in fol­low­ing his pas­sion and stay­ing true to him­self.

We got to hang out with Cur­ti­smith to ask him a few ques­tions about his mu­sic ca­reer and what this song means to him.

What in­spired you to get into the art form?

I’ve al­ways been a fan of rap and hip- hop. So I guess it was just very nat­u­ral that rap was the kind of mu­sic that helped in­spire me and push me to re­ally pur­sue what I wanted to do rather than what was ex­pected of me.

What pushed you to put your ma­te­rial out there for ev­ery­one?

It hap­pened very nat­u­rally and or­gan­i­cally. It started with just my friends, and then it grew from my friends to a big­ger cir­cle, and that cir­cle grew and grew un­til now. I feel like it’s just a rip­ple ef­fect that’s just grow­ing and I’m do­ing ev­ery­thing I can to keep it from stag­nat­ing and keep it grow­ing as far and as wide as pos­si­ble.

Why did you choose this form of ex­pres­sion?

I re­ally didn’t ex­pect any of this to hap­pen be­cause I was re­ally just mak­ing mu­sic from my bed­room and I was do­ing it for my­self as a form of ther­apy. It’s only re­cently that I re­ally un­der­stood how big my fan base is.

How does your col­lab­o­ra­tion with San Miguel Pale Pilsen in­spire you as an artist?

My dad re­ally loved it when he was alive. I think it res­onates with me be­cause it’s orig­i­nal. I think that the only way that con­cept was it­self away from ev­ery­one else. Not try­ing to im­i­tate any­one, be­ing orig­i­nal.

Who is Cur­ti­smith? Who is Mito Fa­bie?

I’m re­ally just a per­son, a kid who wants to show peo­ple that you can suc­ceed from fol­low­ing your pas­sion. As long as you ded­i­cate are nec­es­sary. You don’t have to com­pro­mise your life­style just be­cause you’re fol­low­ing your pas­sion.

What is your fa­vorite line from your new song, Am­bi­tion?

What is your mes­sage to all as­pir­ing artists who are just start­ing to pur­sue their pas­sion in mu­sic?
