Discuss your personality.

I am very humble, and laid back, I like to observe and say less, but deep inside I am very intense, once I’ve set my mind to something it pretty much gets done God willing. I’ve been told I’m charming by women and a hard working leader by men, but I’m really just a risk taker learning from mistakes.

 Brief us about you as a musician.

As a musician, it all started when I started playing the drums at the church I attended. Subconsciously I think that instilled a rhythm in me, but I didn’t consider music for a long time, until about 2012. Even then it was just an outlet of expression, poems turned to lyrics, composed music and only shared with family and friends, or I kept them to myself as lessons I learned or a journal to look back.

Go into details on what have changed in your life for choosing music as a career. 

Well it’s very early in my career, so far not much has changed. I’ve had this lingering anxiety that the deeper I get into my career, the more responsibility I’ll have to take for music. For instance because it’s part of me now, if someone were to say “hip hop sucks nowadays” they’ll essentially be saying I suck, so that means I have to be extremely conscious about what I’m using my platform for.

Tell us the benefits and drawbacks of choosing music as a career.

The benefits to me are lucid; I have a chance to use my platform for social change. To touch each and every person that takes a listen, and make sure they come away with something from that. Whether it is a historical/current fact, a share emotion or something they’ve never heard artistically and more. The drawbacks, I think I touched a bit earlier, more power more responsibility. Got to have to have a thick skin because you may have a piece of work you thought was amazing and the others will scoff at it. For me, I like to stay low key and it’s really tough to do that when you’re trying to get your work out. Those are the drawbacks so far.

Tell us how you will manage fame as an established artist. 

I wonder if I can impact people’s lives without fame. Fame is not something I’m aiming for, but if it’s inevitable then I will carry myself as an example for the youth, because we’re paving a way for the youth. People don’t listen, they imitate, and therefore I’ve got to be sure I have a good impact.

Elaborate on the story line of this song. 

“Chase”- it starts out with a description of my youth, “way before I found my flow” and how eager I was to grow up, my mom left me to my own devices and I began to run loose “wake you silly motherfathers quick get me, leash on this dog getting loose” then goes through my encounter with a woman while leaving I get pulled over by the police “sentinel staring at my x men” which turns into a car chase. Filled with historical facts and current facts and leaving the rest for interpretation and vivid storytelling to ambush my listeners’ imagination.

Tell us how you relate with your fans. 

The truth is what we’re all seeking. Everyone can identify with realness, open vulnerability. So the people, who consider themselves as fans, are really extended family who are living life and understand that my message is a real one.

.

.

.

Brief us on what you have in mind before considering music as a career. 

What I had in mind was how will I get people to listen, I like staying low key, I would have to change and thrust myself into the mix to be heard, making sure when I have an opportunity that I grab it tight and I’m putting out my best.

Discuss your good and bad experience in life.

Good life experience include the look on my mother’s face when I finally graduated high school, times with my family, falling in love with someone, having to work overnight to pay for school, while being the captain of my college basketball team, many more. Bad experiences include breaking my wrist, car accidents, lost friends, being addicted to alcohol, fighting through being depressed, and wonder if I’ll amount to anything. Not having my father around.

Tell us about your moment of rejections as a musician and how you are able to cope and move on.

Developing thick skin and understanding that just because someone doesn’t like something, it doesn’t mean it’s bad, unless it is bad, then it’s bad.

I treat every rejection as a source of feedback, every mistake has a lesson to be revisited.

.

.

I sent my music to a record label recently and was told that the production was trash, and the something was off.

Elaborate on the recording process of this song.

Thursday night December 21st 2017, the instrumental came on and I felt it. Letting it flow from the heart. I wrote it and started recording around 9 p.m and finished it around 1 a.m, listened to it for about 30 minutes. Sent it to Broadtube Music Channel around 2 a.m or so. Here we are.
