State your reason for choosing music as a career.
When I was 15, my closest friend that I looked up to like a brother was shot and killed. He died in my arms that day; I was with him when it happened. It made me look at life differently. Before he died we were doing music together, his death inspired me to go harder and never quit because life isn’t promised.
Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.
I could be sitting down, listening to beats then stumble over one I really like, find a catchy melody perfect to the beat, and create my masterpiece.
