Introducing Krisus CEO of Glory Over Dishonor Records/Fitness
In this article, we turn our attention to rapper/CEO/fitness leader Noel Vasquez, or commonly known as Krisus. I asked Krisus a series of questions, below you can find our q and a.
Tell us a little about yourself, where your from, grew up, what H.S./College you attended, etc.
I go by Krisus. Born & raised in Rochester NY. Been writing & recording for 15+ years. Independent motivating & inspiring CEO at “Glory Over Dishonor” Records/Fitness.
What inspired you to get into music? Early experiences worth sharing?
At an early age I became influenced by hip hop through tv programs like BET & MTV. Back in the days it was 90% music videos, unlike today how it’s less music & more reality shows. This inspired me to begin creating music myself. Plus my family was very versatile with music in general. I always had a passion for it, the creative process, the rhythm & flow, video production etc.
Talk about a time where you have faced adversity/conflict and have triumphed.
I feel like as human beings we are always facing forms of adversity/conflict. We are forever learning & evolving & everyday we face mental conflicts, and I believe depending on how we react mentally & emotionally will determine the outcomes of negative or positive experiences.
What do you believe sets you apart from other musicians in show business?
I feel what sets me apart from most hip hop musicians is that I promote a very motivating & inspiring lifestyle & mindset. I create non-explicit music that all ages can enjoy without using lyrics that promote unhealthy or unstable ways of living. My goal is to help the world through music not tear it apart.
Do you have other interests or hobbies?
Besides creating music I am also into the fitness industry. I am the CEO of “Glory Over Dishonor Fitness”. This is an upcoming business that I plan to grow with, creating health supplements & personalized training programs to help inspire others towards a healthier life-style through sustainable dieting & workout programs. I wouldn’t mind diving into the modeling industry as well for fitness gear. Who knows that could also be a future possibility.
Any projects you have out or or currently working on?
Due to covid it has been awhile since i’ve last performed live. At the moment I am focused on writing/recording & releasing singles, perfecting my sound/craft & working towards hitting the stage again. Networking with like-minded individuals & opening doors to new possibilities & opportunities.
Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years?
Within the next 5 years I would like to find myself at a point of success within my businesses where I obtain the financial freedom to do what I love most while providing for my family. All while changing the lives of many people around the world whether it’s through music, fitness or whatever other endeavors I choose to embark on.
What advice can you give in regards to individuals looking to enter your line of work?
The best advice I could give to others who are interested in this line of work is to just “Be Yourself”. Always have your “WHY” to propel you towards putting consistent effort towards your dreams & goals. Embrace the journey & always make the best out of all experiences good & bad. Just “Trust the process!”
