1. What first got you into music? -I’ve always loved music since I was a child. My mother used to sing in church and loved music so I’ve always been around it. At my Nanas house she had a piano so me and my brothers and cousins would make play songs on it. I didn’t take it seriously until I was 17 when I got hurt after playing football which was pretty much my focus my entire teenage life so it’s almost as if that injury allowed me to reintroduce myself to my passion for music. I downloaded FL studio, started making beats and a couple of years later began to pursue making my own music once breaking out of my shell.
2. Who inspired you to make music? -So much inspiration but to try to narrow it down growing up I was inspired by Micheal Jackson, OutKast, TI, Lil Wayne, Usher, and I’ve always pulled from genres outside of mine from the Bob Marleys, or the classics like James Brown and The Temptations
3. How would you describe the music that you typically create? -The way I describe my music is Authentic. Everything I say in my music is real life. At times I like to be metaphoric with my lyrics to help paint pictures in my songs. The melodies I use add animation to my songs to where you can truly feel the emotion in what my lyrics are saying. I pride myself on being diverse in sound and content. Telling stories from my life that so feel like everyone can relate to.
4. What is your creative process like? -It varies, I have times where I hear a beat and my mind is flowing so I just punch in the song line for line while I’m in a zone. There’s other times where I write my lyrics out and take my time constructing a song piece by piece.
5. Who would you most like to collaborate with? -Chris Brown, Koffee, Dua Lipa, Metro Boomin, Young Thug, Rich Homie the list could go on I love the thought collaborating with talented artist to come together and make a fresh new vibe or sound.
6. What is one message you would give to your fans? – THANK YOU, to everyone who supports me and is behind me I love y’all!
7. How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business? -The internet has completely changed the music business. Artist are able to upload music and distribute to millions with the click of a button. People can go “viral” now, someone can go from at home to a superstar overnight it seems. It has definitely made it competitive because with how easy it is to upload music, everyone feels like they have a shot so it’s a lot of artist putting their music online every minute. One of the best thing about the internet though is that people from places that may have never heard you, can now discover you online by accident almost.
8. What is the best advice you’ve been given? -Your dream belongs YOU. God gave you that dream so it wasn’t meant for anyone else to understand it. You don’t have to justify your vision for anyone. Chase your dreams and believe in yourself.
9. If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be? -The fact that artist sometimes do and say negative or lame things in order to get attention rather than focusing on just making better music and constantly pushing the culture forward.
10. What’s next for you? -More music, more videos, more content. I’m going to make my mark on this industry telling my story and inspiring people everyday.
