I listen to it over and over and over, in the car, headphones, upload to streaming site listen there to make sure that I like the mix down and master of the record. Once I like everything I’ll do my final mastering with eMastered for that quality sound.

Discuss your music background.

Music was a big part of my household growing up. My mom and dad used to always play music from motion artists and more. Once my older brother Sean started singing and doing shows I really took notice, but it was not until his death that I really started to take it seriously.

Discuss your music process.

For me it’s all about my mood and vibe at that time I hear the record, but I always start with the beat and if I like the vibe I will start rapping some words and if I like them and they stick, I’ll write them out and continue until I have a verse down and then repeat, then it’s time to get in the studio and record it.

 

But if I am in the studio and the song comes on and I am feeling it, I will record it right there.
