Who-my name is Joseph Schuety aka legittru, i am a 32-year-old small town rapper from Minnesota. I have been doing rap music for about 18 yrs now.
How it all started- I have always had a love for music which started at a very young age. Till about age 14, when I decided I wanted to be a rock star, but, I hit a few road blocks 1. I couldn’t sing worth a damn, which meant no vocalist for a rock band. 2. I have really short fingers, so I couldn’t play the guitar very well unless I bought a custom guitar which at the time was 2500 or more. 3.wasn’t in the best shape and had asthma, so sure as hell I couldn’t play the drums, but I could keep a beat. And last but not least, no one cares about the bass. However, I did notice one thing: all my lyrics rhymed and followed a scheme. No, I know what most think. A white boy, a small town. eminem, must be his main inspiration well one of them, but not the main. It was actually insane clown posse, twiztid, tech n9ne, krizz kaliko and a whole lot of other underground artists who all had the same opinion. It doesn’t matter, white black brown short tall skinny fat ect everyone has the right to contribute a verse so no 8 mile was not my main motivation hustle an flow was probably closer. So, starting when I was 14 doing rap, kept it secret till I was 18 started dropping bars on people, then 1 yr later, got signed to 2 low-named labels 1 label solo 1 label group project did a few shows then my group partner got back into meth so i tried going solo nullified my contract got screwed over 2 yrs later got into drugs real bad 3 yrs later got clean suffered from major writers block till i relized i had a drinking problem got sober 1 yr ago started making music again 10 months realising my writers block was caused by my heavy drinking so now im back sober clean an nothing is gonna stop me.inspiration. Well,
When i started age 19 was when i dropped my first song.
Where im from small town in minnesota called staples
What type of music do i make? Of course rap/hip hop but i’d like to call it what one of my main inspirations in music jellyroll calls it (therapeutic music)
My plans for my music-well i just released an ep tales of a broken mind so thats off the check list so id have to say keep making music hopefully grow a bigger fan base so i can start doing shows again. And hopefully that will help me pursue my dream of running an independent label that helps those out there who can’t really afford promotion you know all the slept on talent i wanna help people. Thats my goal for my music to help people show them that there not alone in this messed up world and its ok to feel the way they do and to go get help i want to help people with my music just like music helped me. We already live in a selfish world as it is it only takes 1 to make a difference.
Upcoming releases- i have a few songs 2 or 3 i plan on releasing in the next 2 months other the that i might have a big project im working on. Possible another cd with more tracks theres alot more to come i started working with a branding/ssm team to help keep my ducks in line and also i am starting school to get my bachelors in science of music production along with business so lets just say im staying busy.
