What got you into music? What helped me get into hip hop real heavy was the first time I heard hieroglyphics & Nas. I had a few rap albums before that like ice cubes “amerikkkas most wanted” but when I heard that east coast sound back in the 90’s it was a wrap. I was all in, started free styling with my friends when I was 14, then writing when I was 17 or 18.
