Recently Charlotte MC Well$ dropped his first album The Way I’m Living Makes My Mom Nervous and it’s been causing a lot of talk from the cover of the album to the lyricism. That being said, I came up to Raleigh to catch up with the artist to get the scoop on the details of the album (like how him and Metro Boomin linked up for “Heaven’s Door”), his upcoming tour with Waka Flocka, spit’s a freestyle while actually being sick, AND most importantly answers if his mom is aware of the album’s EXISTENCE. In continuation with the video above, catch the rest of the interview (that you didn’t catch in the video) below.
Me: So how long did it actually take you to make this project and who all did you get involved that you didn’t put on Revenge of The Booty Scratcher ?
Well$: Um it really didn’t take long or well… I guess you could say it did as far as like…last minute stuff .
Me: Now I know you got to work with Metro Boomin for ” Heaven’s Door”. How did both of you guys link up for that track ?
Well$: Honestly it just kinda happened. We had a mutual contact that ended up just connecting us.
Me: So it’s possible to say Metro Boomin trusts you?
Well$ : Oh yeah, very possible.
Me : So you’ve told me “Us vs. The World” (which is one of my favorite tracks alongside Young Man)is a track you wouldn’t mind consistently performing for a couple years .Now in the song, you reference a lot to North Carolina. Was there ever a moment you felt like the culture of Carolina was either not being given the proper respect or just not taken as seriously as now ?
Well$:For sure. I feel like we’re still being slept on right now.
Me: There’s one lyric that really stood out is when you said ” Used to be the nigga in the crowd now I’m the one with the crown.” Well NOW your about to be on the road with Waka Flocka & DJ Whoo Kid. How do you feel about your own come up ?
Well$: I’m just humble man. Sometimes I still cant believe it but I’m honestly just really humble right now. The tour kicks off January 14th
Me: Are there any NC artists on the scene you mess with heavily (Bankroll Bird, JK The Reaper, etc)?
Well$: I rock with a lot of NC artists, s/o to the 006 SET . I mess with a lot of the talent here though. There’s just hella talent in Charlotte alone that people just aren’t hip to yet feel me ?
Me: So the question I’ve really been wanting to ask: Does your mom know about the album and if she does, has she heard it ?
Well$: Nah, she still doesn’t know about it.
Me: Do you think you will ever tell her about it?
Well$: If I have to, yeah. For now, nah .
Me: Enough said, thanks a lot Well$ for being here ! The album is great and I wish you the best.
Well$ : Oh yeah no doubt , thank you !
