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

I actually came up off listening to old school music. As a little kid I would always be listening to Biggie or Pac and that is what really inspired me to want to rap as I got older. As I’ve grown older though, I’ve begun listening a lot more to new school artists because this still is my generation. I love the past and respect it but this is now and I feel like we should all be focusing on now. Just because the new generation of music that I’m part of is different does not mean it is worth any less. In 20 years people will be looking back at today just as we look back at the 90s in the present.

Tell us your most memorable day as an artist.

My most memorable day as an artist was probably the first time I went to LA. I got to see where I truly wanted to be and meet with a lot of people I work my ass off to not only be like, but compete with as well.

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

I was always told to focus on yourself before you focus on others. Not as a machine of selfishness, but because you need to be where you want to be before you can get others where they need to be. I’ve always said that if we find ourselves across the country in 5 months it’s going be all of us. Not just me.

.

.

.

Tell us the major reason you are into music.

Because I love music. As a kid I would prefer listening to songs rather than watching TV. This has always been my life.

.

.

.

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

I understand not everybody can be original since there is so much out these days. But at least differentiate yourself from YOURSELF. Don’t put out the same song every 2 weeks and treat your fans like they are stupid. Keep changing and adapting to the environment you are in.

.

.

.

Tell us your future plans pertaining music.

All I can say is stay tuned. There will be a ton of stuff coming out this year. Last year was another key year in developing. Now we’re ready to unload.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret of success.

 No secrets. Just work hard.

.

.

.

Tell us how you become a musician.

I became a musician around the age of 12 or 13 when I first started recording my raps. I had been writing since I was around the age of 8 and played the piano from 6. Once I realized I could put words over what I was playing I fell in love. From there I just kept getting better. And every time I did, I’d reward myself with some new piece of equipment or more commitment.

.

.

Tell us what makes you happy and sad about this project.

It’s honestly just a sad song overall about what I’m willing to do for what I want. And what I want is to gain traction with my music. To be able to get to the point where I’m living off what I love.

.

Tell us your point of view on rape and sexual harassment, and how it can be eradicated.

Honestly I think the first step is for people to listen. We need an environment where everybody is safe to say what they want to say without someone jumping out and giving their opinion. At the end of the day, it is your life and nobody knows about it as well as you. If somebody says something about themselves or what they have gone through, we should actually hear them out and listen. Listening is so important. Social media destroys this because people will just jump out and say their opinion without reading what people say just for the sake of getting something like a top comment. It all starts with listening. Then we get to create awareness. Once this is created, it can only become stronger. All those disgusting human beings who were safe in the shadows of lies can be drawn out and exploited for the terrible people they really are.

List the people that deserved to be given credit for the making of the song.

I mean I did the mixing, mastering, writing, and all of the performance. The engineering for takes were done in Blueroom Productions and production was all Tripzzie.

.

.

.

Tell us how you get fund to run your music career.

I honestly just have money saved up over my life. I used to make money through making and selling Facebook pages for companies online.

.

.

.

Tell us the genre of your music and the reason you decided to go for this genre.

This is honestly just what I am. It’s like asking a rabbit why they hop. They just do.

.

.

.

Tell us if you prefer to write your own songs or you prefer to write with professional songwriters.

I write all my own stuff. There may be writing credits for suggestions; like if someone in the room likes “yo I dig that. What if you said this,” but it’s all me at the end of the day. I enjoy writing for singers though, and love collaboratively writing with them as well.

.

.

.

Tell us if you prefer to produce your songs or you prefer to work with reputable producers.

I love working with other producers and adding my own spin onto things. I produce as well but mostly for others. My boy Ivan is one of my go to person right now as he’s sent me a ton of dope beats.

.

.

.

Tell us the story behind this song.

This song is actually a love song to music in general. I worded it as if I am speaking to a girl but I am actually speaking to music in general. That may be hard to grasp but what it really turned into was me talking about my commitment to these songs, and how there is “no room for a top”. I described the mood of the studio as we recorded it and just everything I would say if I was in a room with myself, God, and music as an actual personified being.

.

.

Tell us your favourite brand of microphone.

Blue. Look back at the pictures of me as a 13 year old recording in my bathroom. Even there, you’ll see a blue microphone.
