Ambition is a talented young man and of course the main reason why he was selected to be a part of Pretty Ricky after the departure of Pleasure P. Ambition as well chose to leave the group and since then has proven that he can be successful as a solo artist. Ambition’s last project “Spaceship” is actually one of my heaviest played CD’s in my car (true words). I really like that “Hear What You Saying” that song bumps. The thing about it is that he has put out better music since which is a hard thing to do which has made me very excited for his new project, “The Phoenix Project”. This guy needs to be in the big time.
We had to contact Ambition about his new single when we heard because we needed to post. Here is that interview.
Why did you select this song as your current single?
I chose this song as a single because I wanted to do something crazy and off the wall that was going to turn some heads. This song was the most controversial song I’ve ever written so I went with it.
How does this single relate to the rest of the EP?
My EP, “The Phoenix Project” is going to show a lot of versatility in the music and styles. There will be some R&B some POP and Hip Hop so I think this single fits well.
What was the writing process for the song
All my songs are written about something that has happened in my life or a strong want or need in my life. I’ve always had a thing for Nicki so I wrote the hook easily, and when I sang it to J-Pad he made the beat in like 10 minutes and I took about 20 writing the rest of the song and working a lot of her song titles into it.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
It important to be able to say the things that are on your mind and I think I did exactly that. But it’s also just about showing that there can still be skill in Hip Hop and mixing talent with controversy.
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
I think that some people when they hear the song or see me perform it, they get caught off guard at first, but then they either agree with it or think it’s kinda funny.
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
No. I don’t think any artist can be summarized by 1 song. Being an artist is about everything you embody, the music is a very small part of my artistry.
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
There is a video planned but its TOP SECRETE!!!
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
My life is always my motivation. Enough things happen in your life to write forever! I always want my fans to be able to learn something about me when they hear my music.
