What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.
Growing up in the projects music was a way to escape from my project life. It gave me hope.
One of the reasons I started doing profanity free street music was to prove everyone wrong. Lots of people told me that it wasn’t possible and I couldn’t do it…. I knew I could.
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
I made Expensive Taste to remind me of where I’m at in my career and where I’m going.
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
Music wise T.I, Jeezy, and 50 cent.
And non music wise – Myself. I’m a go getter and when I want to accomplish something I wont rest until I handle it.
In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?
My sound is unique…. there are a lot of artists out there but I bring various styles of music while keeping it profanity free so everyone can relate and listen.
Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…
Albums: ice cube war and peace vol 1, Mc Eiht we come strapped, young Jeezy thug motivation 101
Movies:The Godfather, Scarface, and the Matrix
Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
Both. I have my own studio so I get excited when I’m working on new music and I can zone out and write without worrying about studio time. With performing I love interacting with the crowd and telling my stories on stage.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
The “Deceived” song. That was one of my newest songs after my Destiny album. Once I made that song I knew my style was changing…. I was becoming more comfortable as an artist on the business and recording side of the industry
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
I’m currently looking for an agent and will be continuing to release music once a month while working on a college tour.
Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
