What inspires you the most when you create? My dog, my family, and my ex. Not gonna lie.. I’m definitely more on the “love” side of things when I create so I get a lot of inspo from past experiences. Like, when I was really happy and “in love” or whatever. So I try to manifest the happy and sad feelings that came with that especially in the FEELINGS tape. My studio also helps me get in the mood. It’s a home studio with serious feels. A lot of it is personal. A bottle of wine and some bud helps too.
Who are your top 5 influences? Okay so I have love for so many artists out right now and artist who are either no longer with us or who don’t make music anymore. My top five is difficult because it changes with my mood. I’m a huge Mac head and It’s probably apparent with my music. Faces literally saved my life man. Love drizzy too. He’s the goat. Kdot, cole, ferg, earl(greatest rapper alive), Post, Tyler, Bronson, joey.. the list goes on and on. Lotta inspo from them man. Asap is my guy all day. Fucking Kodak man. I’m all over the place. Dex dope as fuck too. If I could make a song with frank ocean id reach my peak though. That dude has gotten me through a lot as well. Most importantly my team. These guys inspire me on the daily. With out them I’m not shit. Raj, Roy, Hutto, Ryan and moms y’all the real top five.
When are your new projects coming out? Very good question.. I’m a very impulsive person so it’s hard to tell. I just like to create and when it all starts to come together I’ll know but I am working on a “album” so be prepared. I do have a few older tapes that never came out that I’ll probably drop within the next 6 months to a year. But just know new shit is coming.
What helped you get into music? Okay so real cliché but I’ve always been into music. I played guitar pretty much my entire life and I played snare in my high school band for an extremely short amount of time. I would freestyle with people and I always got praise for my raps so I figured if the people hearing it liked it I might as well give it a shot. Also, my roommate and day one homie Roy is a dope artist who makes music too. He always inspired me to get into creating so I decided I’d take that leap. Honestly the energy I get from my team makes me a stronger artist and makes me grind harder every day.
What is one thing you would tell your fans? To the people listening to my shit.. I fucking love you. You’re all so amazing. It means so much that I have people out here enjoying my art. I treat music like a diary so it means a lot to me seeing people appreciating it and relating to it. And to any fan or not that has a dream and doesn’t know if they should approach it.. jump. You have one life so live your fucking truth. You have one of these so make it count. Take that leap, love.
What are your biggest goals for 2018? Well, I have a few moves I’m making but just know that a huge transition will be happening soon. Life is changing for me and the team. Love you all, thank you so much.
