But I watched Flo Rida get millions overseas and I need some of that. be whole a bunch of bullshit. I like to make great things. You mentioned that people assume things about you. Can you elaborate on that. I like the assuming because sometimes I just don’t wanna talk so much. I think early in my career I was talkin’ just a lil bit too much. Now I’m grown up. I’ve been doing this for nearly 10 years, I done grinded with every artist that came outta Poe Boy Music, and damn near every big artist that came out of Miami. I’m kinda pioneering already. They see Brisco as a pioneer with everything I’ve accomplished already in Miami. It’s time to get something to show for it. Everybody wants to know what’s up with that Waka Flocka diss song you did a while back. Not to dig it back up, but we haven’t had the chance to get a statement from you. Actually, he’s at the same hotel with me right now. Everything’s good. It was basically over nothing. [Gucci] mentioned my name. I’m a skinny nigga from Miami and I don’t take that type of shit. I stand for what I believe in. It was just a bumping of heads. I feel like Gucci Mane tried me so I’ma try all his people. That’s what I did and it’s over with. Did you ever actually talk to Waka directly about it? Nah, I talked to the boss. I really don’t have to say nothin’ to [Waka]. He really wasn’t my target. I never had bad blood with him. I like how his mom moves. I admire that. I know comin’ up as a young artist, people are gonna come at you. I was one of them people that came at his ass. But we beef free. Ok cool. Back to the album, have you set another release date for it? We don’t have a release date. This record “On The Wall” with Lil Wayne is really catching right now. You’re trying to let the single bubble some more before you drop the album? Yeah. You know, I always been buzzin’, but I needed that record. But to me, I was always the yelling Brisco, the screaming Brisco, the mad Brisco, talkin’ about dope, and whatever.

You were inspired by Flo Rida’s success? Yeah. And Rick Ross was the first cat to ever put me in the studio to screen my talent. Other than that, cats like Flo Rida – I walked him through Poe Boy, walked him through the system and how it was supposed to go. I watched these cats go from $20 to $20 million. That’s motivation and inspiration. Flo Rida’s sound was in a whole other lane when he first started out. Are you trying to go that route? Or are you sticking with the street sound? I have fans that when they hear one of my records one time they’re instant fans. There’s more versatility in what I do. I’m studying how to be noticed in what I do. The sky is the limit for what I do. I’m not gonna close the window of opportunity on what I do. You’ve recorded a ton of music and put out a lot of songs. Are there any records you feel like maybe people slept on in the past? Or songs you felt shoulda got more props? Definitely “Bitch I’m Me.” But every record I put out is better than the other guy’s record. I’m saying a lot by saying that. But by me being with Poe Boy Entertainment, when I walk in the studio I also see the business. The studio is the office so I know the business. I know the marketing budget you have to put into radio. When that button gets pushed on Brisco, like it was pushed on other cats, not to poke at other cats, but the ear was fooled into liking all the music out there. With Brisco, you don’t gotta to be fooled. I got love, I can go to New Orleans and a muthafucka will start crying ‘cause she met me. That just shows you I’m doing something right with my music. I take music seriously, myself seriously, my appearance seriously, I set my standards high. Do you have anything else going on? I’ve got that OG Kush mixtape out now that I dropped on April 20th. Get ready for a new Brisco. It’s the same hunger, the same emotions in the tracks, but it’s a little more cleaned up. //
