What role does music play in your life?
Music plays a big role in my life. It has given me a lot of insight to be able to make music that sounds good. I feel that you really have to sit down and learn who you are, and focus on making music that you can appreciate, because no one will appreciate what you’ve made if you aren’t capable of doing that yourself.
What motivates you to keep going?
“My motivation comes from my camp and the people I’m working with, combined with my relationship and everything else that goes on in the life of a young rapper. I take all of that in and translate it into my music.”
Describe your sound in 3 words.
“Wavy, ambient and melodic.”
Would you describe yourself as more of a rapper, singer, or producer? Why?
“I consider myself an artist period. I Co-produce my own tracks, along with my Executive producer Matlock, I write my own songs, rap my own bars and sing my own hooks.
More than anything I just think there’s too many rappers out here trying to make it by only rapping or only singing ,when in reality you gotta get your hands dirty in it all to make the quality music people want to hear.”
If you were to go main stream, what would you want to be known for?
“I would want to be known as ambient R&B and Hip hop.”
If you could work with anyone, who would you collaborate with?
“One person I’d want to work with would be Johnny Rain out of OD Republic because of the content and message behind the music he makes. I feel like we could push a collab in the right direction to hit mainstream and still stay true to a certain message.”
“Every fact about me is fun.”
