What helped you get into music? My dad was a musician/ producer. I grew up in the studio, just about all my relatives does music, its always been there. Its apart of me. The first time I knew music was something I wanted to do was the first time I saw the video for Kanye West’s “Through the Wire” video. I was at the Underground Mall in Atlanta. I was there for a visit when I was a kid. I was in the footlocker store. I looked up at the tv and there it was. Instantly inspired. That moment changed my life. I wanted to be like him.
