Where did you grow up?

I’m Claymore, I’m from Brooklyn, NY. I rep the whole NYC though, I literally lived in every borough except Staten Island, fact!


What inspires you?

“I had no choice but to learn how to rap…I’m from Brooklyn! Growing up, all I heard were rap debates and arguments about HOV, DMX, Biggie, Pac, Nas, etc. I fucked with Hov and X the most. They were my favorites, but they weren’t even the n*ggas that inspired me to do this rap sh*t. I just liked their music.

I was inspired to do music later on when Bow Wow came out (go head, laugh, I know lol). It wasn’t so much of his music that inspired me, it was more the fact that we were around the same age and he was living a lifestyle that I wanted to live. Seeing a lil n*gga like that, live like that, just inspired me and it let me know that it’s possible for me to do it too.”

What motivates you to keep going?

“Everyday life motivates me. At the end of the day, I ain’t where I wanna be yet, so until then, I can’t stop! I have a son to feed now, I have a niece and a nephew that wanna be spoiled.. brothers, a sister, my parents, they wanna live good too. So how can I stop?? I can’t.”


How would you describe yourself as an artist?

“I’m just a breath of fresh air. I feel like I have the total package as an artist. A young, fly, handsome n*gga that can actually rap. I can actually make a song, and I don’t need a bunch of effects on my voice to do so neither. Even if I did use effects, it would still stand out because I’ll finesse it to where you still can hear my originality.”


Fun fact:

“I still have a crazy jump shot and I’ll probably buss yo favorite player’s ass. 🏀”
