Meet “Rocco Lupo” The Creator of the New Genre of Music Called “Funky Pop”


Can you tell us a little bit about your background and how you got into music?

Well, I got into music by my dad playing these songs that are from the 70s, 80s, and 90s just when I was 3 years old, and from that point on I always loved music and especially the older songs!  but my biggest influence was always Teddy Riley and Michael Jackson.

How would you describe your sound and your musical influences? 

I’d say my sound is “Funky Pop” but I have an old-school vibe like Smokey Robinson, Teddy Riley and Michael Jackson.

What can fans expect from your upcoming album? 

They should expect to have fee-good sounds like back in the day. Funky pop has its own sound with a touch of new jack swing. I intend on giving everyone something new and funky they can vibe to.

My song writing process really comes from the man above and just the beauty of earth creatures and the kids because when you look at the younger kids you see joy and happiness and just a pure soul that comes from God.

Meet Skywalker Davinci


Skywalker DaVinci has many titles, Artist, Engineer, producer, foundational instrumentalist, just to name a few. Native of Columbus, Georgia, with sonic and visual arts as his insatiable passions, Davinci has incessantly used these tools throughout his life since the early ages of childhood, to survive the challenges South of the Mason-Dixon line. Fueled by love, and driven through pain, he engineered his obsession into a journey of lifelong learning.

Get to learn more on Davinci as he gets interviewed by V-Henny.

V-Henny: What inspired you to pursue music?

Skywalker Davinci: Music has always been a big part of who I am. From being a child listening to songs on the radio, to playing instruments and singing in church, I’ve always been surrounded by musical influences. I had family members I looked up to musically. My mama would blast RnB music some Saturday mornings and my siblings and I knew it was time to get up and clean up. While cleaning I would sing along. These were some of the best times of my life looking back on it. Instances like these are what helped fuel me into becoming the Artist I am today.

V-Henny: How would you describe yourself and your style of music in third person?

Skywalker Davinci: A multi talented artist, engineer, and producer. He is extremely dedicated to his craft. Working tirelessly to make his lifelong dream a reality, driven by the ups and downs of life, and the world around him, Skywalker DaVinci conveys his thoughts and emotions vividly  through his music. From being openly transparent and unfiltered about his struggles with suicide, to his expression of gratitude to God, his family, and fans, for being there for him through it all. Skywalker Davinci not only creates music for survivors; people who’ve been through similar experiences or worse, but also for the people who want to just forget about their problems, if only for a moment, and dance; appreciate life; unwind and feel a blissful sense of happiness.

V-Henny: What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?

Skywalker Davinci: I don’t have to pretend to be something or someone I’m not, and I think that’s a very underrated superpower. My story is what sets me apart. Even the words that come to me in my creative process are divinely given to me specifically, so that I can reach and touch exactly who I need to. But aside from the spiritual aspect, just me being able to produce my own music and not have to wait on anyone else to recreate my vision is extremely powerful for me. I get an idea in my head, like a melody, and I can instantly bring it to reality. Having the ability to record, mix and master songs, and create quality music through years of trial and error have shaped me into a top tier, self sufficient Artist.

V-Henny: Have you ever felt discouraged by the industry and if so how did you overcome the thought/feeling?

Skywalker Davinci: When you’ve been creating music for a long as I have there will definitely be times when you feel discouraged and want to give up. At times I felt stagnant and wasn’t getting the results I’d hoped and worked for. There was even a time earlier on in my career when I performed in a live showcase in Atlanta, GA and forgot every single word of the song due to recording it the night before, and also stage fright. I never wanted to perform again! But I knew I was destined for something greater, and knowing my purpose and passion is what kept me going.

V-Henny: In order to succeed in life you have to know how to give credit and give back . Who would you give credit to for your success thus far? Who would you give back to?

Skywalker Davinci: God is first and foremost. Without him I wouldn’t possess the mind, the gifts, and talents that I have. Secondly, my family. I’ve been tremendously blessed with a strong support system of people who believe in me, even at times when I didn’t believe in myself. And last but not least my fans, who also believe in me. The fact that they are willing to invest their time and energy into me as not only an artist, but a man, speaks volumes on their dedication and appreciation for who I am and what I represent. I will definitely be giving back to those who supported me through it all. No questions asked. No doubt about it.

V-Henny: What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

Skywalker Davinci: Honestly I don’t know what I’d be doing. Once I officially started creating music it completely changed my outlook on life. I saw the people I was reaching with my voice and messages, and instantly knew that this is what I was put here to do. I never had a plan B.

V-Henny: Let’s talk about your album “The Dark Side”

How long did it take you to complete it?

Skywalker Davinci: It’s hard to really put a number on it, but In all it took roughly about 6 months. Reason being is because some songs on the album were years old but just had to be completed. Other songs were new. The Dark Side is just a mixture of different songs from different times that happened to tell a similar story so it all fit well together.

V-Henny: What are we expecting from this album?

Skywalker Davinci: The Dark Side has many different styles to suit a number

of different moods. It will make you dance, vibe out, happy, and hype, but it also has the power to take you to a place within yourself that will make you face certain traumas that were left unhealed. I guess you can say it will take you on an emotional roller coaster. With tracks like ‘Vibe Check’ that will make you want to dance and have a good time, but then ‘Better Days’, that will give you raw emotion and pain with hope that things will get better if you’re feeling down and out. This album is sure to speak to a vast and diverse community of people for sure.

V-Henny: What song would you say took you out of your comfort zone? Why?

Skywalker Davinci: Definitely ‘Better Days’ by far. I recorded this song back in 2018 while living in my car. At that time I was located in Atlanta, GA. I had just started driving for Lyft and was provided a rental car through the program they offered. My life had no absolute direction at that point and I was down to one of my lowest moments. But I always had faith that things would get better. Eventually they did. This song was like my escape from everything I was going through. It’s hard to listen to sometimes though because I can still feel every emotion from that time like it was just yesterday. It’s the most vulnerable track from the album for me.

V-Henny: What’s your creative process like?

Skywalker Davinci: My creative process is actually very abstract. Nothing concrete. I don’t have a set schedule to go by. No routine. I simply do what I feel. Some songs may take hours. Other songs may take years, in which I might come back to them purposely or stumble across them in pursuit of another song, and I’m pretty sure that in itself sounds abstract. I also find that being locked in a room for so long blocks my thoughts and creativity, so to combat that I like to go outside to give myself a sense of freedom and openness. It spaces my mind out and allows the creativity to flow again naturally.

V-Henny: What were some of the steps you had to take to get to where you’re at in your career?

Skywalker Davinci: Discipline and consistency are the two biggest factors for me right now. Had I had more of the two earlier on in my career I think I would be a lot further along on my journey. I also had to sacrifice time. There have been many sleepless nights but I was so locked in on becoming the greatest version of myself musically that I didn’t let anything deter me from achieving what I set out to do.

V-Henny: How long have you had this creative vision and what pushes you to be consistent ?

Skywalker Davinci: ‘The Dark Side’ was a vision that I had for many years. The concept came to me around 2018 while I was going through a deep depression in life and over the years I just cultivated the idea until it was the right time to finally present it to the world. The title represents the dark side of myself, the world and the people in it. We all have our flaws. Nobody’s perfect. It’s all about the dualities of life.

V-Henny: What do you want people to know about you on a personal level?

Skywalker Davinci: I want people to know that I care. Plain and simple. I know what it’s like to live in this beautiful, yet cruel world, and feel as if nobody truly cares. I’m an empath. It gets overwhelming at times but I can’t fight that part of who I am. I’m just learning to embrace it and protect myself from evil forces. I want to love and be loved. So I think part of my destiny was to help heal the world with my voice and music.

V-Henny: What’s next for you?

Skywalker Davinci: I have plans of touring, meet and greets with my fans and supporters, more live performances, and overall just elevating my craft to its highest potential. But ultimately, what’s next for me is whatever God has planned. I just want to keep creating the best music and content that I can and watch how it all unfolds. I stopped setting expectations and learned to go with the flow of life because things can change in the beat of a heart.

Hip Hop Artist Scorch: Building a Vault and Burning Up Charts


We’re happy to be speaking today with a phenomenal underground music artist with
mainstream notoriety in Hip Hop “ Scorch”! Before we get started, how has 2023 been treating
you thus far?

2023 has been great thus far. My song Tan Caliente has been steadily rising in numbers and we just hit 7.5 million views on TikTok and the numbers are still climbing through the roof and more and more people are joining the dance challenge. It’s incredible and the girls love it.

Tell us the story behind your brand name came to be?

Vault Life Entertainment is the label, VLE for short. I came up with the name in a dream. When I awoke I remembered it, ever since then my slogan has been I don’t want the bag I want the Vault. The name Scorch came from me burning down cyphers and shows. The full name is Octane Scorch Flames the first rapper in the game with a first, middle, and last name. One could say I was born into it.

How did you learn to rap/ write/ to play?

My brother Serj, the lyrical emperor, showed me how to structure my bars. I would freestyle for hours giving away free money my brother would call it. He showed me a format and it stuck with me to this day.

What was the 1st concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?

Rakim and he was performing at Mount Morris.

If you could have a musician tag along with you on tour, who would it be?

Jay Z, that’s a no brainer to me because he’s hands down one of the best to ever do it with an endless amount of knowledge about the music game.

Do you prefer to listen to music more or create?

I prefer to create, I don’t like to listen to a lot of music from different artists. The reason being is I don’t want to be influenced by other artist subconsciously. I want my music to remain as uninfluenced by other artists as possible.

Have you had any raps you started writing and then found difficulty in finishing? What advice
would you give other indie artists to break past that to finish it?

Yes, I wrote a song named “LIFE” it’s a beautiful piece about overcoming a harsh journey in life. I’m sure every artist has at one point of time or another been through what is commonly known as Writer’s Block. I’m no exception, the way to get over it can be as simple as taking a break, sometimes you have to hit the reset button. If you’re like me and you listen to the beat, it will tell you what to say and the song will basically write itself.

Have you experienced stress on stage before? If so, what do you do about it?

Yes, one time in particular, a Dj had my microphone off level after we already did a good sound check. I allowed him to correct the problem while I had to entertain the entire crowd with freestyles.

As a hip hop artist, if you could change one thing in the music industry. What would it be ?

The replication of style… you can create without stealing an artist’s whole life. Just because it’s new and exciting In a lot of cases doesn’t mean that you have to be a culture voucher.

If you didn’t pursue a music career, what would you be doing?

I would probably be acting in movies if I wasn’t pursuing music.

What can your fans look forward to seeing next from the Lyrical Genius Scorch?

Next project I’m releasing is a song called “Going Up” It’s a fun energetic track that I’m releasing in February. Follow me on instagram @therealscorch and check out my website to stay tuned and don’t forget to join the #TanCalienteChallenge on TikTok and if your on IG and do a dance to my song send me a DM to let me know so I can post and share you on Facebook and Instagram.
