What prompted your start for your career path?

I just felt a natural transition happening in my life and I decided to follow my intuition.

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

My good friend in high school, Blaze Bundlez, saw a lot of potential in me. But, Jasiri X is kind of saw me as next level talent. He’s a visionary, him including me in his vision means a lot.

First problem you have come across?

Being indecisive. Just something I need to work on.

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

Creating something that makes people feel good. When I created “Sex Sells,” it didn’t feel good. It was a heavy piece of art and somewhat edgy. “The Freak Show” is a little easier to digest.

How will you make an impact given a chance?

Well, working with 1Hood Media I was given the chance to make an impact through artistry, but I want to make more an impact in the community with much need restorative action.

Why should people take notice in your work?

This is the type of music people can listen to and feel like there’s nothing they can’t do. The music takes a life of its own and leads to endless possibilities.
