CaliPost Interview: C. Wayne

Hi C. Wayne! How are you?

Hello, I’m C. Wayne and I am doing well, I’ve just been working on the engineering and song structure of my music.

Where are you from?

Toronto.

How did you get into music?

It just sort of happened randomly in grade 11. My good friend Nick (Rapper Yun G) and I had this guy in our class with an interesting name “Avinash”. And my friend Nick (Rapper Yun G) texted me his name and I responded with a rhyme “Got the cash”, and we sort of went back and forth until we ran out of rhymes. When I went to sleep that day I was dreaming about what it would be like to be a rapper. I abruptly woke up and grabbed my phone and went on YouTube, searching “How to rap”. I learned about the 16 verse. And wrote my first rap song that night which was called “Physics”. However, a few years before that in middle school, I had a music class where I had to learn to play a song or make one. I decided to make one, and made my first song called “My Mom Took My PS4”. I also made a little melody on the electric guitar. Didn’t know how to play it or any other instrument, but the class still liked it a lot. So I guess I had music in me in the beginning.

What is your greatest achievement as a musician/producer?

I’m not sure how to answer that question. Sometimes it is the song that I’m working on and how it sounds perfect in that moment. Other times it’s reaching a milestone on musical platforms, having producers saying they want me to rap on their beats, getting responses from big artists and producers, or even being the first person in my family history to have music published and having that music heard by thousands of people. It depends.

What are 3 words that describe your style?

Comedic, fantasy, and fictional.

What do you want people to take away after listening to your sound?

I don’t want them to take anything from it. It is mainly fiction and just a vibe I catch while listening to a beat and just music I make by myself in my bedroom. I like my music to be fun, positive, and a little comedic because that’s what I listen to. When I listen to music in the car, I want to turn up and get some joy. So I really just want my audience to smile, have a laugh, and/or brighten their day while listening. It is not supposed to be serious, just fun and entertainment.

Who inspires you the most musically?

It depends. Sometimes it’s just the beat, the beat title, something I saw, something someone said, something Drake said, or even what happened to me that day. I once wrote a comedic, chill song which my friends call a classic called “Can’t Trust These Hoes” after a girl did me dirty. So pretty much everything inspires my music and my lines.

Who is one artist you wish you could work with?

Drake and Future, arguably the longest running and most successful rap artists period. I just want to be around those talents, learn a little marketing and game from them, and hopefully make a fire song.

Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is coming out? What is it about? (or about a new song)

I put all my songs as drafts the day I make them on SoundCloud and YouTube, so there’s a lot coming out. But as of January 1st, I have released a song on the 12th of December called 12 Days of Christmas (Sped edition) – a comedic rap version of 12 Days of Christmas. Also just released today a drill song called Bugs Bunny that I made years ago, I just like it, so I released it. I also have a song releasing on January 15th called TRUMP 2024 which is a comedic country/rap song that has me using a country accent, and comedic stereotypical lines about being a country boy. It’s using my fictional comedic country character called Country Wayne.

Anything else you want the audience to know about you?

Yeah. I’m currently a university student studying Electrical Engineering who makes rap, trap, and drill music in my bedroom. I do everything involved in my music including mixing and mastering. If you’re a person reading this who wants to make music, just do it, and Google every question you have about it. I have no background in music, I have just been using Google to figure out everything I had questions to. You don’t need to go to a studio or know music or be talented to start. You have Google. Don’t sell yourself short. Just enjoy creating. Feel free to contact me if you have questions on how to start. Links below!
