Where are you from?
Describe your songwriting process
Songwriting is like a movie in my head. I love telling stories, like everything has to make sense not only to me but to anyone who listens. I have to be in an a certain mood to right a certain song, or sometimes I don’t have to at all I let the beat do all the talking.
What song or song(s) were your favorites growing up?
Growing up Micheal Jackson Man in the mirror really kept me going after the issues i had with family and peers growing up. I knew that once i take action for my mistakes and look at myself to be better i would become a better person.
Where do you get your inspiration for the music you make?
Its like I pull it from another dimension. I think about my week or what has happened that day or something I have seen and I write about it.
How would you describe your music to someone who has never heard it before?
Refreshing would be the world. If you ever wanted an artist who can be relatable in almost ever aspect in life, bars and metaphors are still relevant and the structure of a song is A1 then I’m your guy!
Around what age did you decide that music was what you wanted to do?
At 6 my mother siad that she bought me a play school microphone and ever since then I have been in love with music. But also at the age 10 I knew once me and my lil cousin started to make music with just a instrumental pen and pad that it was meant for me.
What does music mean to you?
Music is family to me, it means journey, it means success, it means love. It might sound cliche but it means to me what it means to everyone else and escape from real issues for a moment in time. Gives you a break and maybe even an answer to your problems.
What was the best advice that you have ever gotten about the music industry?
Ian Burke one of my mentors as I would call him told me. “You got the gift of gab with people, you can make things happen. Learn be a student first and then take over.”
Who would you love to work with ?
Jay Z hands down! He sparked this business man mindset in me while still being grounded to the music. I want to learn as much as I can from him, pick his brain in so many ways.
What is at least one goal you wish to accomplish in your music career ?
I have a long list of things i would love to accomplish. One in particular I want to create a body of music with almost every artist i grew up on. It might sound crazy and far fetched but thats what I would like.
Where do you feel you have the biggest fan base?
Man i def think my fan base is all over. Atlanta and Houston I’ve created a brand for myself that has people talking about who is he.
What type of image are you looking to display as an artist?
I displaying the kid who would always dream of stardom and when it happens reminds everyone of a cinderella story. Im not the drug dealer but i witnessed it, I’m not the shooter but I’ve been a victim of it. I’m not the bad guy, no am I a saint but I’ve witnessed it.
