Government Name: Charles Christopher Caputo Rottmann, 15 years old I’m a german kid who grew up mostly in Lake Ronkonkoma, New York. I play basketball and used to play baseball when I was younger.
What is the meaning behind your rap name?/Where did it come from and why did you choose it?
My rap name is my parent’s last names (and mine) put together. My mom’s last name: Caputo. My dad’s: Rottmann. Cap + rot= Caprot. They are the two people who created me, and half of each of them is, essentially, me.
How long you been in the game for?
I have been recording for one year and writing for three years.
How did you get into the game?
I WAS BORN IN IT SON! Only joking, I got into hip hop through my cousin James, who introduced me to the genre as a whole. He also used to write when he was younger, and inspired me to do it myself. I just took it a step further.
So why do you rap? Is it like a hobby or a career move?
It is currently a hobby, but I so desperately want it to be a career move in the future. I can’t think of anything else I would enjoy doing. However, I do acknowledge how difficult it really is to take on making hip hop music as a full time career, and do not rely on it as my only option.
Who inspires you/Who is your favorite rapper?
My biggest inspiration as far as delivery/style is definitely vinnie paz. I always loved his dark and powerful delivery, and the beats he uses have become some of my favorites. I also love the really old school sounding instrumentals like New York State of Mind, Represent (both by Nas), When I B on the mic (by Rakim), and etc.
What are you trying to bring to the game?
Some interesting conceptual views on many different aspects of life, along with solid raw lyricism and punchlines. I don’t really see myself disregarding lyrics in the slightest in any song I make. They are the most important aspect of the genre in my opinion.
What’s your favorite song or project you ever came out with?
My favorite song that I came out with is most definitely Cap’s Creed, closely followed by Stuck Between Primes. I think they both represent my skill very accurately.
You got any projects coming out in the near future? If so, what are they?
Honestly, I cant say whether anything will be coming out soon. I am working on a lot of things at the same time, and you can expect more, better music in the future.
And finally where can the people find you at, online?
