Life & Work with TJ Supa

Today we’d like to introduce you to TJ Supa.

Hi TJ, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I worked in the major music industry in New York for about 8 years for a few recording studios and mastering houses, like The Hit Factory, Herb Powers House of Sound & C&C Music Factory Studios. I initially started with an internship at the record label Jive Records in NY after finishing up recording school. I moved into film scoring, launched a record label (Supa Music), and then shortly after, the station & show, Radio Supa.

Can you talk to us about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It’s been an up and down road. It’s interesting how life can come at you on the journey to your destination. One-off situations life throws at you. Suppose you want to find some success in the industry. You must build your daily life to allow you to work on the things necessary to win. I’ve done this by working a full-time job as a single father raising 2 boys, working on a bachelor’s and a Masters’s degree, and experiencing all of the weird.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am more prominently known for being a radio host on the world’s syndicated Radio Supa.Show. I do many things, though. Own the digital radio station. Host and operate a music video show (Rock The Mic Show). I do film scoring, am a Hip Hop artist, and work with several nationwide urban music publications. I am currently managing an artist (Melanin Monroe). I probably forget something.

What was you like growing up?
Growing up, I remember the two most prominent (fun) things were writing, performing music, and playing the next video game. Playing video games was always the first go-to when I thought about fun. Music-wise, I operated like I was on a mission. Once hooked on it, I never let the music go and pursued it.
