Berk The Turk uses new single to say ‘Hello’
EAST LANSING, MI – When Berk Cindik isn’t studying neuroscience at Michigan State University, he can often be found pursuing his passion for Rap music. But this native of the country of Turkey isn’t just another Hip Hop lover whose hobby allows him to create a song or two every now and then. He’s a rapper whose experimentation lends itself to a new sound and style that the music industry has been seeking.
Operating under the stage name Berk The Turk, this new artist is hitting the scene with a splash, thanks to his new single, “Hello.” He describes it as a song that perfectly encapsulates the vibe of what Berk the Turk stands for – a person who is uplifting for people to listen to so they feel better when they listen to his music.
“At the end of the day, I want Berk the Turk to stand for something positive that will lift the moods of other people,” he said. “Personal growth has always been the goal for me, but I’ve always wanted people around me to grow as fast as I grow. I love what I study and sometimes it takes a lot of time to focus on my music because I really want to make high-quality music. I only want to do that when I’m 100 percent locked in, so if I have to study for an exam or something, I can’t work on my music. But when I do get to focus on the music, I just get lost in it. I like flowing and even when I’m studying, I always have beats playing in my mind.”
For Berk, growing up in Turkey was very affected by American culture – from television shows to sports and, of course, the music. When he was a sophomore in high school, he was presented with an opportunity to study in the United States, and he hasn’t looked back since. Though he goes back to Turkey about once every six months, he said he loves American culture and hopes to be able to make America his home for a long time to come. Most especially, he said he hopes to advance his music career and become a global brand with a name that everyone knows.
“I just want people to know I’m a great rapper,” he said. “In my opinion, my style is a little different. I’m an international artist and when someone listens to me, I want them to have a different experience than they’ve had with any other rapper. My goal is to write about real stuff. My major is neuroscience so I know a lot about the human body and existential stuff, and that’s what’s usually revolving around in my head and what tends to come out in my music. I don’t flex or anything because that’s just not my style. I’m just a guy who practices a lot and who always works on his flow. I know I will get better, but I’ve been excited to see that people already like my stuff. That makes me want to go for more and learn how to rap even better.”
