Top 5 Influences: My Top 5 Influences in Hip Hop is a tough question… However Jay Z is my Biggest Influence from there I’d say Biggie, Nas, Black Thought, & Kendrick. However I am a fan of Any Real Emcee so after Hov there are plenty I am also highly influenced by my Peers fellow Emcees (no Trap Shit).
New Project? New projects on the Horizon for Myself Another video and The Release of The MADxiLLA Tape, (Sometime this summer to early Fall) Then A joint Album with Fellow Hometown Emcee “Choc” Called “The Rebel & The Radical” “The Rap Pack” Album and finally “The Rebel 2 (JustAKidFromBridgeport)”.
What helped me get into Hip Hop? My Cousin Jrocc influenced me a lot though he may not know. The fact that I was related to someone that made big impact on the culture was amazing to me. Along with the culture itself From B Boys to Bomber (Taggers or Street Artist) to The Dance Crews to finally the Emcees learning different styles and hearing the different stories from so many parts of the world Hip Hop pre Trap era is what got me into it. I love words and the Different ways to express them. Also my Brother from another Travis Pettway I can’t forget that if you hear any song and hear me say “what up trav” it’s him, he believed in me when no one else did.
