1 on 1 with Queen’s finest Rai Smith
What’s your artist's name and where are you from? Rai Smith from Hollis, Queens, New York Why do you love music? Music is communication. I love that sometimes the best way for me to describe what I'm feeling is through song. It’s a little weird but melody and sonic energy can often translate feelings a little bit better than a regular conversation. Music gives me a chance to say things that might not be the easiest for me to say. When I get behind a mic, it’s therapy. There are no limitations, there’s nothing holding me back, it's like the mic is amplifying my mind, soul and body to relay the message. I can be honest without ridicule because it’s my art. I honor and respect my process; sharing it only feels right.
People Who Inspired Me To Be A Writer: Ice Cube (rapper/filmmaker)
As a writer I draw inspiration from almost every avenue of art and life. My biggest influences for writing mainly come from film, literature, and music. When it comes to music I'm a nerd so I can pretty much enjoy almost anything and I'm respectful of every form of music that exist. The genre of Hip Hop is one of my favorite forms of music and when it comes to rappers, my top favorite rapper of all time is west coast Hip Hop pioneer, Oshea "Ice Cube" Jackson. Ice Cube as he is known to most is not just my biggest influence in Hip Hop, but also one of my biggest influences as a writer and storyteller.

Why I love the Queen
Here, in Britain, there has been an awful lot of celebrating going on this weekend, June 2022 as Queen Elizabeth II reaches the monumental milestone of having served 70 years on the throne. 70 years! Bunting has been raised aloft and glasses raised. Beacons have been lit on historical monuments (safely, of course) and concerts, displays and parades organised. Street parties have been held and a lot of good cheer has been shared the length and breadth of the British Isles. It has brought people together and it is timely with the years that have been spent virally apart to gather and revel with re-found freedom.
Madonna was my mentor
Madonna was my life coach. In the 80s, whenever I felt stuck and unsure what to do next, I asked a simple question: what would Madonna do?
