What inspires you?

“Listening to good music is what inspires me. Seeing Joey Bada$$ on the BET cypher when he was 17 Is what made me believe that anything is possible, and ever since then I’ve been driven to work as hard as I can to make my dream a reality.

I look up to artists such as Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole & Drake as well, but good music in general is what really sparks my creativity. Seeing everyone around me fall into the typical motion of life, like working regular 9-5 jobs is what motivates me every single day. I know I have a greater purpose in this life… the thought of normality scares me.”

How would you describe yourself as an artist?

 “I have a variety of styles when it comes to making music, all depending on my mood or state of mind at the time. I could make a club banger record one day, then get in the studio the next day and write conscious raps with deep, well thought out lyrics. It all depends on the vibe really.”

Random fact

“I used to make up random lies when I was in elementary school just to entertain people and get crazy reactions.”
