Who first recognized your talents and what it meant to you?

My older brother Tank, which meant a lot because he was the first rapper that I looked up to.

First problem you have come across?

Dealing with janky promoters and janky management.

As an up and coming artist what was it that you seen that you needed to improve on?

I needed to put out more material than other people, make it better quality than other people, and also put it out faster than other

How will you make an impact given a chance?

I will give back to my community of Austin TX by opening after school musical activities for children who were in similar circumstances as myself and my family.
