What inspires you the most when you create? My surroundings, I speak about my experiences while serving in the military, I speak about my life, the good and bad. It’s important that an artist connect on the level of where they come from so folks can know what to expect once a new artist arrive, then you can hear and see what I talk about.
Who are your top 5 influences? Musical influences? Man, that’s a hard question because there are so many greats but Nas, Jay Z, Rakim, LL Cool J and Krs-One. When are your new projects coming out? Summer 2019, things are being finalized as we speak.
What helped you get into music? My grandad was one of the most influential people in my life so when my family and I visited him when I was younger we had to sing in church so as I got a bit older I touched a bit more on my musical soul as time progressed and honed in on my craft a bit more. It also helped that I was into poetry, so my word game was like that.
What is one thing you would tell your fans? More music is coming, I speak my truth and hopefully it will inspire more folks to learn and elevate themselves to a better place.
What are your biggest goals for 2019? I am a very humble guy so just having people listening to my music is a goal achieved, but I am coming out with a few EP’s in the next couple weeks. I am starring alongside some amazing actors in a movie called CHAAW, written by Director Eric Orr in July. Big Daddy Kane and Biz Markie will be in it which is dope. I received a “Best Hip Hop” nomination for the Independent Music Awards out in NYC so I am excited to be a part of that. The ultimate goal is to open for another amazing hip hop artist and be a tour opener for their team then have my own sole tour.
