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.
I’ve been Making music since sophomore year of High school but I’ve been rapping since I was 11. My first bar was “I pull out my gat while you pull out your map.” Ive came to be who I am today due to personal experiences. When you listen to any song of mine you will find that I tap into a range of emotions like Rage, Sadness, Confident Etc. So with that said I change very frequently because my emotions musically are like a spinning wheel.
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
My latest release called Nice to Meet, is about meeting that special someone and the feelings and doubts that come with that. from my perspective in the story you can tell I’m pursuing a girl who is taken and we know those relationships usually don’t end well.
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
My Influences range from 3 different genres Hip Hop, Rock and R&B. But to keep things simple my top Inspirations are artist like Eminem, Tyler, Mac Miller. Eminem, just for straight text book rapping, Tyler because he has so many different styles, and Mac Miller because of his growth through out his career he was gone way too soon. And also I draw influences from my peers and friends.
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?
I feel like my sound is different because it has so many ranges to it. Like I can go to talking about taking someone’s girl to some very personal experiences in my life. At the end of the day it’s all fun. I think that’s what’s missing in hip hop just fun for the sport and competition. So if you like deep emotions lyrics and good fun music you should check me out!

Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
I prefer a Live setting because I love to see the reactions I get from my songs and I just love to interact with a crowd.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
The first time I was introduced to a huge crowd was on Sway in the morning in Chicago and He completely mispronounced my name. He called me Metro I guessed he misheard me when I told him or he read the paper wrong. But I vowed after that day he will know my name.
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
If you ask anyone who listens to my music. I guarantee it’s an answer that holds allot of diversity. My most interesting song in my opinion is Pigeon Hole because of all of the flows and beat switches. It show my versatility very well. I also love the message of isolation and depression masked by a upbeat tempo.
