Here's a short clip of Chingy speaking about the new mixtape.
Miguel Soto (born January 28, 1986), better known by his stagename (Soto), is an up and coming Hip Hop artist born and raised in the Brooklyn New York. Currently Soto is an Independent artist (Unsigned) that has been writing since his teenage years but never took it seriously until a close friend of his encouraged him to start writing more.
At that point Soto began developing his writing and focused his attention on his music. Soto is a versatile artist who paints pictures with his lyrics and delivers music that fans can relate to. Soto is working on his album titled “Initial Posture” set to release late spring or early summer. Until then for all updates, follow him on twitter@Soto_711.
When we asked Michael what the album title was all about he responding saying, “I have always stayed true to a specific sound with my solo albums... previous releases have easily fallen into the singer-songwriter or acoustic category. This album is the product of what I create without keeping any genre in mind. I make all kinds of music... I am all over the place... one thought to the next and one style of music to the next..."
"I spend hours and hours in the studio creating music and experimenting with new sounds. This year alone within my own album and for appearances on other projects, I have recorded reggae tunes, indie rock tracks, folk songs, choruses on hip-hop tracks, roots rock songs, hand percussion pieces, and so on. I listen to all kinds of music... well, except for country... on any given day I may wake up and listen to Bright Eyes then Jay-Z then Mason Jennings then Midnite then Shamanic Journey then the Felice Brothers then Rage then Josh Ritter then Broken Bells and then close out the day with Paranoid Social Club... with that said, I have no desire to commit to one genre with the new album... I am a musical mess and I want to reflect that in my works. I hope my dedicated fans can understand that this change is necessary to keep my life exciting... hence the name of the album. This album has been a happily-twisted journey to record and create... Much love and appreciation to Evolvement Music Studio for dealing with me and my cast of interesting and very talented musician friends."
