The genre that best describes me would be Dark Rap or an Alternative Rap. My sound can best be described as gritty, slightly raspy and seasoned up with retro style distortion.

How Did You Get Your Name? Is There A Story?

My name came to be in 2016 when I was living a much different lifestyle than I am today. I was constantly getting into trouble on the streets to point of being sentenced to prison twice. I now utilize my Artist name as a reminder of who I used to be and just how far I have come since those days.

What Are or Have Been Your Musical Influences?

I started listening to Logic back in 2010 and his work, especially the his earlier stuff has always been a massive inspiration and motivation for me to pursue music. Today some of my influences are Night Lovell, LXST CXNTURY and Hippie Sabotage.

What Are You Working On Now? Any Future Collaborations We Can Look Forward To?

I am working quite a bit actually! I am about halfway done with a new album and boy I have put my heart, soul and everything in between into each track! I have spent the past 2 years writing down some of my more intense and memorable experiences all for this moment. I feel that now is the time to let the world know, understand and hear what I have to offer.

What Is Your Ultimate Goal In The Music Industry? What Is Your Plan Of Action?

Real talk, I honestly did not even think I would be doing interviews like this one right here or have my music on the front page of multiple websites. When things started moving and grabbing attention I ran with it big time. I started reading on self promotion and how to market my music properly and through doing that, I have built myself a network of other artist's and promoters who believe in me and my music. Seeing my favorite hobby turn into a monetizing and profitable opportunity I intend of riding this wagon until the wheels fall off! I am about halfway through a 1 year plan of action that is actually ahead of my original goals. I am still building a quality fanbase and I make sure to network with other artists as much as possible in an effort to get my music out there to more people and more speakers!

What Is Your Favorite Track To Perform Live and Why?

My favorite track to perform would have to be my newest release, The Code. That track gets me on a different level every time & I go into my own universe with it. The fans love it as well, the energy can felt with each listen and that right there my friends, I call a "magic track"!

What Has Been The Biggest Challenge In Your Career Thus Far?

The music part comes natural to me and always will, however the challenge of actually getting my work out there to right people and in the right hands has been the hardest. It took a while to finally find my audience and the people who enjoy my music. In this digital landscape of music promotions, it is very hard to find quality services at the right price and who also legit. There has been a lot of trial and error (and money) to sit here and be able to say that I now actually have a credible promo network.

What’s Your Typical Songwriting Process?

My songwriting process is pretty weird. Most of the time the lyrics used on a project I release were probably written while listening to another song. I tend to write lyrics late night after closing my day down. Up until the past year I mainly did freestyle raps and only had written lyrics for future ambitions. A lot of adversity flooded into my life in 2019 sparking me to write more for both lyrical content and to also help deal with some of those issues. My upcoming album is going to really be relatable to the masses as I dig deep into some of the more personal aspects of internal emotions.

How Has Social Media Influenced Your Career As An Artist?

At first it seemed like a mountain I would never be able climb, but I just keep pushing and sharing my work anyways.

Sharing my views and style through music for people to enjoy and relate with has always been the goal and passion for me, real talk.

What Did You Do Before You Started Making Music?

Well I have been making music for roughly 10 years as a hobby on my off time. To be honest I have incorporated music into my life no matter where I was in life since high school. Ask anyone who really knows me and they will tell I have music in my soul and most know me as a music driven individual.

Any Advice For Young People (Men or Women) That Want To Succeed In The Music World?

My best advice to is go tunnel vision on any an all negativity that hold you back. My family never really supported my passion for music, otherwise I would have been much farther along in this game. I guess what I am saying here is that, if you truly have drive and passion for music and you feel you have a unique skill, then you need to follow and not let a single soul stop you. No matter who it may be.

What Would You Change In The Music Industry If You Were A Top Music Executive?

I would change a lot lol. But one of my main irritations right now is how controlled the trends are these days. All I hear the same sound and the same style of music over and over with only slight variation. It is boring, repetitive and well no where near creative. I would push for more underground exposure and more diversity within the genres of music.

How Do You Feel About Originality?

Originality is everything, especially these days. People aren't trying to watch the same type of video back to back. You have to stand out, be different each time and be consistent in doing that.

Is There Anything Else We Should Know About You Or That You Would Like to Add?

There is ungodly amount of stuff to know about me, I have lived an action packed life that could probably be published into 10 or 12 novels at this point. I am always up to talked about more specific aspects of my history and what made me the person I am now.
