Today I got the chance to sit down and chat with one of Alabama’s biggest entertainers: PrattCitySavage! He has grown from a viral comedy sketch creator to headlining some of the biggest events across the South, and we are pleased to share with you the conversation we had with him.
Carlisle: Hey Pratt! Appreciate you setting this up for us to speak.
Pratt: It was going to happen eventually bro.
Carlisle: Well I wanted to keep the interview short and sweet, so I got eight questions I want to ask you.
Pratt: Let’s do it. I’m ready *laugh*
Carlisle: First thing I want to ask is, where do you see yourself currently in your career?
Pratt: I’m really just hustlin’ right now. Making my way back in this sh*t you know? Tryna grow each day and stay positive; which is difficult for an entertainer.
Carlisle: I’m really happy you started posting skits again.
Pratt: Me too! I had so much happen in my life over the last few months that almost made me say f*ck everything, but this is what I love to do and who I am really.
Carlisle: Tell me what it’s been like for you since the pandemic hit.
Pratt: Nothin’ real change foreal.
Carlisle: Were you still getting shows regularly?
Pratt: Hell yeah! Man look, I saw people in wheelchairs getting money during the pandemic. If they can get money, you can get your ass up and get a check *laughs*.
Carlisle: That’s one way to look at it haha! Well seeing you’re doing well during a difficult time is great man. On a more personal level, I’d like to know how do you relieve stress on a regular basis?
Pratt: Carlisle and people hearing this...sex and money!
Carlisle: *laughs* I’m not surprised you said that based on your story posts on Instagram.
Pratt: Yeah man those two things run my life and I love them too much foreal. I lost my virginity when I was young and sh*t...it’s turned me into an addict.
Carlisle: Addict? Like you crave sex that much everyday?
Pratt: YES! Carlisle listen when I tell you, that sh*t is incredible! Trust me, I don’t know what I would do without it.
Carlisle: A man loves what a man loves *laughs*. Sex and money is interesting, because you seem to speak a lot on social media about it. It seems everyday you mention something about hoes or getting your money up, how do you see your influence?
Pratt: Honestly, it’s for the people who I used to be around; Real killers, hustlers, and drug dealers. Nothin’ positive ever comes from where I’m from, so bein’ some type of inspiration for those people is who I do it for. I’ve seen my videos help young kids get through some rough sh*t, and that means so much.
Carlisle: When did you know your content was circulating like that? I’m sure people were messaging you daily.
Pratt: Since day one! I’m known for being myself, so people weren’t surprised when I did videos. The more I posted, people would be like “Pratt you funny as hell” so I kept goin’.
Carlisle: It’s crazy those videos lead to you hosting parties and events nearly every week it seems.
Pratt: Don’t know how, but I’m a damn good host!
Carlisle: Did you always see yourself being an entertainer or did you have a dream job?
Pratt: Man I wanted to be a chef *laughs*
Carlisle: Really?! Wouldn’t have ever guessed that.
Pratt: Yeah always loved that sh*t but decided to go to college for something else.
Carlisle: What did you end up majoring in?
Pratt: Journalism and Communications at Stillman College
Carlisle: Achieving all these things by 23, what would you tell your younger self if you saw him?
Pratt: It gets better. Be yourself and don’t be anything less than that.
Carlisle: Well Pratt to finish our interview, what’s the best advice you’d give to people interested in being entertainers?
Pratt: If you ain’t comin’ from a genuine place, people ain’t gonna f*ck with you. You gotta hustle day in and day out or sh*t go get a 9-5 *laughs*
