Pronto discusses growing up in Chicago, his dad being his biggest influence and how he got his name.

(AllHipHop Breeding Ground) 

Pronto SpazzOut is coming for all these rapper’s necks. The name itself alludes to someone who spazzes out, and that’s exactly what he does on the mic. Hailing from the West Side of Chicago, the rising star can deliver a spitfire flow in any given situation or circumstance, spitting nothing short of the real. 

Growing up where he calls the Out West Illinois, Pronto is rapper, father, and sports lover, with his father being his biggest influence growing up. With his pops going to jail when Pronto was 4 years old and coming back home around 13, the Chicago native claims his father is the reason he raps. 

Pronto states, “I didn’t really get a chance to look up to too many people, I really only knew my pops. The first time he ever came home from jail, he wanted to be a rapper so I gravitated with that. It just so happens, I got real raw with the s###.”

After going viral with his “Donk” freestyle inspired by Soulja Boy, Pronto has continued to bless his fans with only the hardest slappers. Most recently, he released “Boyz N Da Hood,” inspired by the late great Eazy-E. 

AllHipHop: Just talk about growing up on the West Side of Chicago.

Pronto SpazzOut: It was for sure fun. It was definitely an experience. I lost a lot of people on the way. The stereotypical… I grew up decent. It was typical. I say it was fun, but along the way I lost a lot of people. You know, typical Chicago s###. They say you come from violence, ran from violence. That’s usually what they talk about and say.

AllHipHop: Who were your biggest influences coming up?

Pronto SpazzOut: For sure, my pops. He tried to keep me on the right track even though he was in and out of jail. He went to jail when I was 4 and came back home when I was around 13. I didn’t really get a chance to look up to too many people, I really only knew my pops. That’s one of my biggest influences. My father is the reason I rap. The first time he ever came home from jail, he wanted to be a rapper so I gravitated with that. It just so happens, I got real raw with the s###.

AllHipHop: Do you remember recording your first song?

Pronto SpazzOut: Yeah, fasho. It was on my sister’s hip camera. Yoo know the cameras they used to carry around on their hips to the malls? I didn’t have no studio so I had my speaker. I’d plug my speaker into my computer, put on a beat, and record off the camera. That’s how I used to do my songs.

AllHipHop: And how did you get nice with it?

Pronto SpazzOut: I kept rapping. I always kept the mindset, even right now. Every song gotta be better than the last one, or my next big thing gotta be better than the last one. I always went off that.

AllHipHop: At what point did you realize you could do it for a living?

Pronto SpazzOut: 2019 when I dropped my hit song “Jiggy Music,” it went up. It was one of them throwaway songs. I really wasn’t even going to do it, but I put it out. Everybody said “nah do it, it’s hard.” My brothers the Heavy Steppers had another hit song that went up, so right behind them my s### got to going up. Definitely around the time I dropped “Jiggy Music,” that year 2019.

AllHipHop: Can you define “Jiggy Music”?

Pronto SpazzOut: Jiggy music is a mix between that turnt, drill s###. The s### you can talk your gangster s### on but at the same time, make it into some positive fun s###. Because you go around people’s vibes, there’s too much gangster s###. N*ggas be trying to be too gangster. Nah, have fun gang. Be gangster later on!

AllHipHop: How much is positivity a part of your life?

Pronto SpazzOut: I try to stay positive through everything. It’s definitely something I always try to work best at. Staying positive is major. I’m definitely big on positivity, that’s how I get through most of my days. Not gonna lie, there’s a lot of b####### that comes with this music s###. If you stay positive, if you try to find yourself while you got yourself, you’ll be good. Positivity is definitely major.

AllHipHop: Pronto means fast. How’d you get the name?

Pronto SpazzOut: I got my name from a Soulja Boy song I used to listen to. “Pronto,” no funny s###. No b#######, it was my favorite song at the time. It was hot. I could’ve been D-Man, but I wanted to be different than everybody. I heard it, I ain’t see nobody picking up on that. Nah, my name Pronto now. Everybody clicked and stayed with it. 

The SpazzOut part came from a brother I lost along the way. Not my blood brother, but a close friend. Taught me everything while my father was incarcerated, locked away. He had a name, AOK SpazzOut. He passed away around 2017 I believe. I took the name SpazzOut, attached it. Now, that’s an even bigger part of my story. 

AllHipHop: Does it have to do with you spazzing out with the bars?

Pronto SpazzOut: For sure, I definitely made it that. It started with my brother, but then I really got to spazzing on s###. Now I’ma make it a way of life. Make sure his name never dies, make sure my name gets up. They know: you dealing with Pronto, you gon’ spazz out.

AllHipHop: Speaking of Soulja Boy, your “Donk” freestyle went all the way up. How was that?

Pronto SpazzOut: My “Jiggy Music” song got a lot of attention, a lot of different feels. Mostly the female fanbase, a lot of people were twerking to “Jiggy Music.” It wasn’t even a twerk song, but they made it a twerk song. Everybody always hits you with that “you need to make something for the ladies, make a twerk song.” Everybody was doing they old beats, DCG and them had done the “Coffee Shop.” Uhhh, I don’t think nobody did the Soulja Boy beat”. Actually, I take that back. It was one of my homies from the hood. He wanted to do the song with me, but it so happened that when I made it to the end and heard myself on it, I spit in it and it went from there. I went along with it. My fan base, females, it made sense.

AllHipHop: Talk about your love for the ladies.

Pronto SpazzOut: I’m single right now. I don’t got nothing bad to say about the ladies, I’m single and looking.

AllHipHop: What was Soulja Boy’s influence on your career?

Pronto SpazzOut: S###, he was the first to do a lot of s###. You know everybody’s going to try to discredit, he definitely did a lot. He definitely played a major part in this internet s###. All this same s### that’s going on right now, I can see Soulja Boy. He really was the first to do a lot of s###. Twitter, Facebook, going viral on Youtube. Who was doing that s###? Soulja. 

AllHipHop: Talk about remixing Pooh Sheisty’s Back in Blood.

Pronto SpazzOut: Honestly, that came about from Laka Films

<https://www.instagram.com/lakafilms/?hl=en> and No More Heroes. He called me one day. It’s crazy because he’s a music consultant with me now. He’s really trying to get me out of the habit of doing industry beats and freestyles. It was just one, he said “bro, I hear you on this.” Bro, I thought you said we’re going to cut out the freestyles? “Nah, bro I hear you on this so do it. If you don’t like it, you don’t like it. You’re going to scrap it, but I want you to do it. Alright bet. I do it, it goes up. I honestly didn’t think it’d do that much, but it’s definitely going crazy right now. Go stream it by the way.

AllHipHop: Talk about the video too, looks like you’re having fun.

Pronto SpazzOut: That’s what I do, I spazz out. For sure, have fun. You’re going to see that in a lot of my videos: a lot of movement, a lot of activeness, a lot of turntness. I’m trying to come different from everybody else and stay turnt, stay in my own lane.

AllHipHop: What is it you want fans to get from your story?

Pronto SpazzOut: To be yourself. Be yourself, always speak your mind. Never be afraid to speak your mind. As far as the street side, if we speaking to anybody, don’t snitch. I’m extremely snitch K. I understand, but that’s definitely a major story. [laughs] My father is incarcerated in federal prison right now because somebody told on him, and it was somebody who was close to us. I’m heavy on the no…stay away if that’s your activity. Everybody knows what we’re out here doing. We’re grown, just don’t tell. Don’t snitch, it’s not good for your health.

AllHipHop: How does your father feel? I’m sure he’s proud.

Pronto SpazzOut: Really, I only talk to him damn near once a month now. Last month was the most I done talked to him in one month. He called me 4 times and one time, it was off somebody else’s number. I don’t know, but he made a way. He’s the reason why I can honestly say that I stayed myself. He kept me on the track of be yourself. That’s all I can really say, never be scared to be yourself.

AllHipHop: What’s the reality of the independent grind?

Pronto SpazzOut: It’s long, I can say that much. It’s a lot that comes with independence. Honestly, if that’s what I gotta do right now, that’s what I gotta do. I’m not in it for the money. I’m in it to make better music, to get better at my music. If it’s not something I can be comfortable with, I’d rather not have it. Independence is definitely a key part of my story too. It’s not about the money with me, it’s definitely about the music. I see my music can influence my city and a couple of these states, imagine what I can do with the world?

AllHipHop: I saw you in the studio with LilJuMadedaBeat. You talking about twerk records earlier, that’s his specialty.

Pronto SpazzOut: Yeah, the GOAT. We got locked in through Instagram. He did a couple of tracks for the Heavy Steppers so we been rocking like that. I came out to LA to work with Laka Films, my manager hit Gwop. S###, we gettin some s### done. We sat down with Lil Ju. I got 3 in with him. Definitely a cool, smooth dude. He kept me on a decent mindframe.

AllHipHop: Talk about the video that went viral on PornHub. You went viral for..? 

Pronto SpazzOut: Eating c######. My boy dropped my s### on Facebook. We play too much, that’s how we play. It was on some playful s###, but he ended up playing too much and dropped my s###. Somebody caught it and put it on PornHub. 

AllHipHop: How did you feel about that?

Pronto SpazzOut: I got a lot of c###### off that video so I’m not the one to complain. I look at it now like damn, my kids may run across that s###, but I don’t give a f###. [laughs] S###, it’s the times I had with the video. 

AllHipHop: 3 things you need in the studio?

Pronto SpazzOut: Water, some weed, and my phone. If not my phone, a pen and a pad. 

AllHipHop: You write?

Pronto SpazzOut: I’m a big writer. I hate freestyling. That’s why my s### be so raw, no b#######. That’s why my s### be so raw because I write. Certain s###, I go back, I proofread. I did it so many times before I came to the studio, I know it’s gon’ sound crazy. [laughs] I know it’s gon’ go crazy. I’m big on writing for sure. I’m trying to get my freestyling up, but that takes doing a lot. You’ve got to travel and see s### nonstop. With that, you’ve got to be in the studio all the time. No days off if you’re freestyling, if you take the freestyling route.

AllHipHop: What can we expect music-wise?

Pronto SpazzOut: Versatility, different. I was driving on the “Jiggy Music” a lot, but I can show the world a little different. Something better than that. 

AllHipHop: Talk about your new singles featuring 1TakeJay & DCG.

Pronto SpazzOut: Me and DCG just dropped “For Me” remix going crazy right now. This my first time in Cali by the way. This my first ever time in Cali. 1TakeJay, he hit me on Instagram not too long ago. We’ve locked in back and forth. He seems like he got a decent head on his shoulders too. He been calling me everyday since I’ve been out here. We did something in an hour. Soon as I made it to the studio, we laid it down. He laid the hook, I laid my verse. The next day, we shot it. That was a real big moment for me, for sure. 

AllHipHop: Talk about the video that went viral on PornHub. You went viral for..? 

Pronto SpazzOut: Eating c######. My boy dropped my s### on Facebook. We play too much, that’s how we play. It was on some playful s###, but he ended up playing too much and dropped my s###. Somebody caught it and put it on PornHub.

AllHipHop: What goals do you have for yourself at this point?

Pronto SpazzOut: To make it. Stay out of the way. Prove everybody who doubted me wrong. That’s definitely a big partl, I try to stay at that everyday. Get some Platinums. I want to see some Platinums this year. Honestly, I want to see finally my first Platinum. I’ve already gone Platinum in the streets off of Youtube views, but I want to really see Platinum. I want to see how far I can elevate in one year.

AllHipHop: What are you most excited for in the new year?

Pronto SpazzOut: New music, for sure. New music, new things, new places. I’m definitely going to do a lot more traveling this year. I’ve gotta see the rest of the world. Stay out the way. Stay tapped in, get more tapped in with my family and my peoples. There’s so much s### going on where you need them the most right now.
