What helped me get into music?
My older brother was a really dope break dancer. Growing up in Lynwood, Ca I used to try and mimic what he did. I wasn’t a good breaker, So following in my brothers foot steps I picked up the microphone at 14-15 yrs old and its been with me ever since. Music is therapy for the mind, body and soul. My Love for music was solidified when I started collecting records.
One Thing Id tell fans is?
Never Give Up
What are my biggest goals in 2016?
Id say consistently releasing great music, and aligning ourselves to be successful pushing my 562 Original Clothing.
The Sky’s the limit we are going to continue dropping music and giving the people what they need. Being a product of the 70’s raised in the 80’s and stuck in the 90’s that’s the energy you get from me every time I speak to the people.
