Tell us how you come about the song. 

I was looking for a unique, atypical sound that told an unorthodox heartbreak story. The rest happened organically from there. Once I heard the beat the rest of the song came to me instantly.

Tell us about you as a person outside the musical world. 

I’m simple, yet complex in my own right. I enjoy the beautiful parts of life but I’m also a workaholic. My passion is through the roof and whatever I’m doing is usually influenced by that. If I’m bringing a Netflix season I definitely feel passionately about it. Same goes for sports and food. Basketball and pancakes can change your life.

Tell us about you as a musician 

As mentioned earlier I’m very passionate; passion is my engine as a musician. I typically speak from the heart in my music but that doesn’t limit my creative range. I’m in my own lane but it’s the biggest lane ever. I can do hardcore rap and then transition to conscious hip hop and then to R&B. I even have actual unreleased rock/rap songs. Due to me being diverse and multifaceted I’m able to have that balance.

Tell us how you manage other activities with your musical career. 

I’m still searching for that balance. At this moment it’s working hard and playing hard. I tend to get lost in the work behind it so much that I forget about the fun part.

Tell us your experience as a musician. 

My experience as a musician has been uniquely motivating. There have been lows and highs but most importantly growth. Music has allowed me to travel across the world and create everlasting memories with countless amounts of people. The experience is what makes being an artist worth it.

Tell us your future plans pertaining music. 

I’m preparing for the release of multiple singles in 2018. Those are the nearest plans for the brand. I can’t tell everything that would leave no surprises.

Tell us what motivates you to write songs. 

Life. It’s that simple. The beat helps with the mood and vibe but ultimately reflecting on life helps fuel the pen.

Tell us what you think about creativity and originality in music. 

I feel it’s extremely imperative and few have it. That mixture is rare to find in an artist. It’s like even if that artist has wild creativity they most likely lack originality. I appreciate artists that have creativity especially originality. I can’t respect copying and pasting.

.

Tell us the reason you are into music. 

The freedom of expression. I like to express myself through music; it represents me in a sense. I’m into music for many reasons though. Music can be therapy and heal the soul. I love the creating process; that’s really the best part to me. Starting with a blank canvas and then painting a picture from my point of view is one of the best feelings in the world.

Tell us your view on old school music and new school music in terms of preference. 

I think music has definitely grown overall based on melody and style however I’m stuck in the old school days of music. It was richer in substance, authenticity, originality and truth. I like music that stands for something and most new school music is in a different space.

Tell us your most memorable day as an artist. 

My most memorable day as an artist was definitely the day I was nominated for best hip pop artist out of my city. The nomination took place at the Chicago Field Museum. I didn’t win but I learned so much that day that helped push me forward.

Tell us what you will do for the people if you found yourself in a position of power. 

I would encourage, inspire, educate, influence and uplift my people. I’m already considered the voice for those who are often silenced so fulfilling that would be a blessing.
