Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.  

I started writing songs around the age 9, when my mother and (then) step-father noticed that I had taken a liking to music, they got me a drum set and xylophone. Although my step-father would later pawn the instruments that was my first exposure to creating music. I would later join band at Stephenson middle school where I met my partners and co-founders of Fat Camp Entertainment, an entertainment collective founded to support, inspire, and further creative efforts in the community. We hosted our first “Fat Ass Concert” this past July and have big plans to end 2017 and kick off the new year. I am a self taught producer, songwriter, and engineer. I produce mostly all of my own music.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.  

I intend on bending genres. Hip hop has been my biggest influence, but New Edition – Home Again was the first music I fell in love with and R&B/ Soul have a special place in my heart. The song “Mad At Me” came after feeling frustrated with a relationship. My ex was not always supportive of work ethic and I felt like I was being pressured to choose between her or the music. I chose.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business. 

I’m naturally a gifted writer, but production, mixing and mastering are skills that I had to learn and fine-tune over the years. Because of that a lot of my early music had a very rough around the edges sound (and even still isn’t as perfect as I would like for it to be). Also, I’m a college graduate (first generation) I graduated from UGA in 2015 and its been tough to make the transition into an artist publicly when everyone has this preconceived notion of who I already was.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot. 

Fat Camp consists of me, and my homies Ye’LIR and McClain!. We met at Stephenson Middle School, but it was not until 2014 that we begin to create music and share projects between one another. Shortly after that we formed Fat Camp and have been picking up steam and sharpening each other ever since. We all have very different styles but somehow they usually blend perfectly. Ye’LIR ( who co-produced “Mad At Me”) was in the studio with me and I had the melody for the beat and frame for the drums. I played it for him and he filled the drums in on the track and I wrote and recorded the song in maybe 35 minutes on the spot. Both Ye’LIR and McClain have projects on the way and there is a Fat Camp EP coming soon!

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day. 

My happiest day was the day of my first concert. I was nervous, excited and anxious all at once. Second happiest day was when I paid off my college loans, paid off anything my mom owed and got her a crib. Renovated my studio and invested!

My saddest day was the days are in the past and I’m not one to dwell on the things in the past that bring negative energy.
