Sicarah.com was able to attend a press conference and learn interesting facts about Mooski’s life, career and motivation to achieve his dream.
Below are some highlight questions and answers from Mooski including the questions we specifically asked and other questions from other outlets.
Sicarah: What is the best advice you received that helps you get to where you are today?
Mooski: My uncle told me because this advice works when things are going well and when things aren’t. You know he said, if you keep doing what you doing, you going to keep getting what you getting and that’s just it. That’s the best advice I got.
Sicarah: What life experience inspired Track Star?
Mooski: A lot of life experiences I guess you can say. Just situations just dealing with someone that you want to be with. You want to fix things when things go left and it’s just some people run from that.
Question: What was it like for you to see a piece of your music blow up on Tik Tok and be used as a foundational trend all over the world?
Mooski: Ok yes so seeing it on Tik Tok it was just amazing. Just to see a lot of different people just enjoying the record and having fun with it. It was just dope especially seeing the song being played within a household and see families making Tik Toks to it and things like that. It was dope, great experience.
Question: Who are your main influences in music and in your personal life?
Mooski: In music Michael Jackson, Drake, PNB Rock, Kevin Gates I can go on and on. In my personal life I’d say my father. He inspired me a lot and that’s probably it.
Question: What is the craziest fan experience you’ve had so far?
Mooski: The craziest fan experience, I was performing one time and this girl had ran up to me and hugged me and kissed me. I had to get Security and I was with my girl.
Question: Can we talk about your Marine Corp. background because I don’t think a lot of people know you spent four years there, can you go into more detail?
Mooski: I’m going to be honest with you when I first went into the Marine Corps I wanted to do 20 years. I wanted to be sergeant major of the Marine Corps, I love the Marine Corps. I felt like I was built for it, like I was supposed to be there and all my higher ups told me the same thing. It was something that was easy for me to adapt to and once I adapted to it, it was so natural. I’m a people person. I love being around people and it opened the door for me to teach. I love teaching and I love inspiring people I just love that. I love brothers, I love the comradery that we had. I love everything about the Marine Corps. It was one of those things I wanted to challenge myself. The Marine Corps is full of challenges and so every challenge I did complete it’s like it was another one the next day so it’s just like always challenging myself and I was just very focused.
Question: What do you think is the greatest fear you had to overcome to get to where you are today?
Mooski: I had to stop caring what people thought about me that’s it. You just can’t please everybody. You have to stop caring what people think about you and you just got to do what you got to do at the end of the day. We all got stuff to do, we all grown. You got to do what you got to do. It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks of you, just do what you got to do.
