Discuss your personality.

Passionate, friendly, perfectionist, chill but insane.

.

.

.

Brief us about you as a musician.

I would say that I am thought-provoking, witty, and complex. Sometimes you shouldn’t take my lyrics at face value; often there is a hidden meaning behind them. Each word is chosen for a specific reason to invoke a certain emotion.

.

.

.

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

I was inspired by Kid Cudi and Wale to tell my story in hopes that other people could relate to my pain and accomplishments.

.

.

.

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

The benefits are that I can get away with saying things that an average person could not say. The drawback would be people expect certain things from you, so it is not about you anymore. Also, unfamiliar energy is negative.

.

.

.

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

I would manage it very poorly at first. I am not used to the attention that famous people get. As time goes on I would learn to manage my new status.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the storyline of this song.

It is about being stuck in mental traffic. It was based off a day from my tenth-grade year where I got into a fight with my mom about being a rapper. It is about breaking barriers and succeeding in your own lane and not having anybody to hold you back.

The greatest moment in my music career is when my longtime friend called “monumental” on a song that we released.

The highest so far has been for $500 from a girl in high school that I wrote a song for….. She never used it.

.

.

.

Discuss your experience pertaining live performances, gigs, shows and tours.

My experience doing shows have been very good, I am a very “interesting” performer. I am not very loud and abrasive like most rap artists. My performances are normally intimate and low-key, I tend to make eye contact with people and move slowly while I am on stage.

.

.

.

Tell us how you relate to your fans.

I make very personal music that most people can relate to because they are based off real issues that people deal with.

.

.

.

Tell us what you will like to change if you have the chance to turn back the hands of time.

A lot of things honestly. If I had to choose one I would have started rapping earlier and I would have taken school more serious.

.

.

.

Tell us the most important people that have boosted your music career and how you met them.

I am going to name four:

Rekadon- He taught me sonically how to make a record. I met him through a mutual friend through Facebook.

Kelvin- He pushes me to step up my lyrics and help me perfect my style. I met him in college.

Keiz- He is very abrasive and because of that he has helped me become more efficient and encourages me to make better decisions. We met through a mutual friend named Yeshua.

D-Shock- He boosts my creativity by making me think outside the box. We met in high school and later through an after-school program.

.

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

I was going to be a teacher.

Elaborate on the recording process of this song.

I got the idea for the song and wrote it. Then I took it to Kelvin house and he enjoyed the beat. I rap my verses to him and he told me that it was the one. At the time it didn’t have the bridge. I got back home a couple of days later and he plays the bridge and later that day he sent me the full song. I was in awe of how it turned out.
