What prompted your start for your career path?
It was when I saw “Lil” Romeo and “Lil” Bow Wow on TV for the first time. It was just the fact that they were so big as kid artists and they were making music that I really liked. It all resonated with me for some reason and I was like, “yep, that’s what I’m going to be doing for the rest of my life.” I was 9 years old when I told myself that.
Who first recognized your talents and what it meant to you?
I think, before anyone, it was my Grandparents. My Grandmother always told me to write poems for her. I got in the groove of writing a lot and it turned into me actually rapping and recording music.
First problem you have come across?
Rejection. Glad I learned about that early on. So it really isn’t a “problem” now. I roll with the punches.
As an up and coming artist what was it that you seen that you needed to improve on?
Everything. I’m a walking work in progress. Constantly changing and vibing with lots of different things. Whether it’s writing words out, doodling, producing – I just want to get better.
How will you make an impact given a chance?
Just provide my energy if it can be of any assistance. Music is what I love and put a lot into it. It’s only right that I share it and make people feel something.
Why should people take notice in your work?
Because I’m a Moonchild and the Moonchild needs to be heard. I’m bringing forth something that all human beings can feel and relate to and that’s what’s needed. Lots of people are so numbed up because they feel so much pain. I feel like The Moonchildren can provide what’s needed in these times.
