How did you start in the music business?
Starting writing poems at the age of eight, but I started music at age sixteen while doing landscaping work. I wrote lyrics on my phone, recorded them, and played them for my dad. He went "bonkers" and told me we need to get this professionally recorded and put the music out to the world.
How would you describe the music that you typically create?
I create a mixture of hip-hop, pop, conscience, and R&B. Hard-hitting slaps, braggadocious lyrics, melodic hooks, and flow. I can switch up my style to show my soft side. I want to learn new styles of music and combine the melody Lil Wayne did with rock, which took Country by storm.
What is the current project?
The current project is rising above the odds to come on top. The project shares how I got here the hard way, and although I am not in a criminal environment, I understand. The project expresses humble beginnings, authenticity, and will not be generic!

To be themselves, break barriers, and be creative.
