What helped get you into Music? My dad was always a huge music lover, and he would always share a wide variety of music with my brother and I. He was my biggest influence in teaching me the importance, power, culture and depth of music. He helped train my ear to identity intent of the creator, as well as how to interpret my experience as part of the audience. From being an absolute lover of music, I had finally began to take a deeper look into hip hop, starting with the old school musicians my dad had shown me; A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, The Wu Tang Clan, Boogie Down Productions, N.W.A., Eric B. & Rakim, etc. This expanded my understanding of the genre, but it wasn’t until I listened to the Slim Shady Lp, that I had decided I was going to give it a try as the creator of this art form.
Anything to tell your fans? I would want to thank my fans first and foremost, as cheesy as it sounds. Being a fan turned artist, I find it extraordinarily motivating to imagine doing the same thing to one of my fans. I would also want my fans to know that I am super reachable via soundcloud, facebook or twitter and always am welcome to interaction, feedback or even just a little chat to get to know each other a little better. Wouldn’t be where I am, which isn’t far AT ALL, without the support of Quadroon fans.
