SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA—When you listen to Brandon Seamster talk, you quickly forget he’s just a teen who recently graduated from high school. He’s wise beyond his years.
“I grew up in an area where alcohol and drugs were around me, and I tried to stay away from that. I was the type of person that kind of saw it all for what it was worth,” stated Seamster. “I tried to go in the opposite direction. Before you can change anybody’s life you must change yourself.”
And changing people’s lives is exactly what he is doing. He recently debuted his first major EP titled “HUMANZ” which has already received a lot of positive buzz from fans all over the country.
“The response has been crazy. There is a song on their called “Gang Prophecy Part.1” and this 14-year-old kid from Massachusetts called me and told me that my music was actually helping him get through a hard time in his life,” stated Seamster. “That made me feel good to know that somebody is actually getting something from this. It makes me feel like I’m doing my job and I need to continue to do that.”
Influenced by hip hop icons like Eminem, Nas, and Biggy Smalls, their style is sampled in Seamster’s latest EP which focuses on a lot of the big news stories making headlines today.
“Some of the topics I touch on include the Trayvon Martin incident. I touched on Ferguson,” stated Seamster. “As for the name of the EP, it comes from the fact that we’re all human. We all make mistakes. But now in this time, things are starting to happen where people almost follow into the footsteps of what other people do. The ‘z’ at the end is stands for ‘zombie.’ We are starting to become programmed to do what people are telling us to do.”
