MuzicNotez: First off, it’s an honor to be doing this interview with you, thanks for taking the time to sit down with us.
Who are the members of this group? What are your specific rolls?
Scout Team: Thank You for giving us the opportunity.
Yung’n, Coolboy Breeze, Cane Cook, and Tu’fly. We all have different rolls and different abilities but we make them mesh well as a team. We’re capable of switching between genres because of the versatility we have.
MuzicNotez: How did you meet and form up?
Scout Team: Well Yung’n and Coolboy Breeze went to college and met up with Tu’fly who just happen to live 35 mins away in another city. Cane Cook had been a long time friend of Yung and Coolboy Breeze and also went to highschool with them. So after college we all came back home where Yung and Coolboy Breeze introduced Tu’fly and Cane Cook. It all clicked and we went on from there.
MuzicNotez: What motivated you to start creating music? What age did you begin?
Scout Team: We got motivated to do it because life threw us all loops and to add to it people would tell us that we can’t do this and that. So our motivation is to beat the odds and make things that people that thought was impossible, possible. We were all young when we first started experimenting with music. We’ve been making music together for years now though. Yung and Coolboy Breeze started collaborating around the age of 16 and 17. Tu’fly came along around the age of 19 and Cane Cook has been with us for a couple years as well.
MuzicNotez: How did you come up with the name Scout Team?
Scout Team: Well we were sitting around trying to come up with something no one had come up with. It was quite a hard decision but we decided Scout Team because just like in sports where the scout team (Practice squad) is used to better the starters of the team but never gets acknowledged for their efforts. We took that and applied it to music because we feel like the underdogs that have so much more musical talent than others but never get noticed for it.
MuzicNotez: Who were your musical influences, idols, or bands growing up that have helped mold you into the musician you are today? Or helped mold the music that you create?
Scout Team: Every bit of music influences us. If its great music we enjoy it, it doesnt matter the genre.
MuzicNotez: What’s the greatest concert you’ve ever been to or performed?
Scout Team: Probably our first performance ever. It was a special feeling to actually have the spotlight on us and to look in the crowd and see the people who support us sing along. It was a very special moment.
MuzicNotez: What’s the ultimate goal you want your music to achieve, or for you to achieve in your career as a musician? Any particular message you wish to send?
Scout Team: Our ultimate goal is to get our music heard all around the world. We have so much talent, so much good music that goes unnoticed by those that don’t know of it. If you like great music definitely check us out.
MuzicNotez: You just released your 3rd mixtape ‘Practice’. How does this differ from your previous releases? What was the production and writing process like?
Scout Team: This mixtape would have to be our best project yet. We had tons of studio time, writing sessions, and photo shoots. You name it. We had lots more professionalism put into this mixtape.
MuzicNotez: What else are you working on? What can we expect to see and hear from you in the future?
Scout Team: Right now we’re working on expanding and getting bigger! We’re working on getting some videos done for tracks off of Practice, Getting fan merchandise available, and we’re currently planning Practice 2 so stay tuned for more great music!
MuzicNotez: Anything else you wish to say about yourself or your music? Any message for your fans?
Scout Team: If your a fan already THANK YOU for the support! If you aren’t we encourage you to go take a listen to our tracks! Get others hip! Talent deserves to be heard. You can connect with us on twitter @Team2Scout. On facebook, youtube, pretty much everywhere you can find us. We will continue making great music for you!
