He’s buds with our baes Jack & Jack and makes killer music. Sammy Wilk has just released his new album ‘Ready For War’ which we cannot stop jamming to. We caught up with him and got to know him a bit better.
Hey Sammy! For those who don’t know you, can you describe yourself in 140 characters?
I’m from Omaha, NE, and I’m a laidback kid who makes reggae hip hop music for a living.
How would you describe your new album ‘Ready For War’ using 5 emojis?
🔥 😏 🍾 ?? 👋
Can you remember which Vine of yours first started getting a lot of attention? How did you feel?
When I tried to pretend a girl was on a kissing cam and I leant in for a kiss, and she slapped me. I thought it was hilarious.
If you could have absolutely anything on your tour rider, what would it be? We’d probably have Harry Styles as a butler and lots of Oreos on ours.
I would have Bob Marley come hang out before the shows.
That would be amazing! Imagine you had to get the last text message you sent tattooed on your head – what would it say?
“Yo, how’s the music video coming homie?”
Kylie Jenner recently called you a ‘performer you should know’ on her site – how did it feel when you first found out she was a fan?
I don’t think of Kylie as being a fan. I know she enjoys my music, but more than that she’s just my good friend.
We love your new collaboration with Jack and Jack. Can you tell us something about them we wouldn’t know?
LOL, we all played tennis freshman year of high school simply because it looked fun.
Sounds like school was total banter with them! What’s one thing in your life you can look back on and think ‘That’s Wild’?
That I live in North Hollywood, CA, and I’m “supposed” to be in Omaha, Nebraska attending college.
That is pretty wild. What motivates you to get up in the mornings and ‘Chase the Day’?
Just knowing that I have supporters out there waiting for new content… I know I have to get my business work done so I can travel the world and share my music with people.
Sammy’s album ‘Ready For War’ is available to download and stream now.
