What is your background? tell us where you grew up and some information about your upbringing/experiences as a youth:
I Grew up in a small town called Williamston out of North Carolina, Never Was Into Sports As a child growing up. I lived with my Aunt an Uncle Most of my childhood years, first job ever was at KFC/Taco Bell in Williamston, North Carolina. Dropped out of high school at 18, got my GED at 20. Now im 25 married with two beautiful kids, with a soul and passion for music.
At what moment did you know that music was part of your life and what feelings did you have towards making an active impact with your music?
The moment I knew music was for me was when I drop my Crazy (G-Herbo remix) in 2016. The story and theme of the song was inspiring to me and others. My Active impact actually came from viewers reactions and comments from the G-Herbo remix. That let me know I was different with talent !
What artists inspired/influences you and if you could collaborate with any artist (alive or passed) who would it be and why?
Lil Durk Is One Of The Main Artist To Inspire Me, Why ? Because He Grew Up In A Worst community then i did (Chicago), he came from shootouts everyday to maybe having no mom or dad around. But he turn to music same as me, an put his pain and feelings into his music. Music is life so him turing to music is what brought him out his struggles an downfalls. Same thing i want to do !
What do you think about the current state of hip hop/mainstream music?
My honest opinion on the current state of hip hop today and mainstream….you have a lot of overrated artist that makes music with now real understanding or meaning, to where you have unsigned or independent artist such as myself that have to really push an work hard to be heard. Those are the people that have good understanding music with purpose and meaning that never gets recognized !
Currently, what projects do you have in the works that you are most excited about?
im most excited about my “FriiMindFriiSpirit” Album dropping this August…. more so because i get to tell people my life story and journeys. It speaks about empowerment but how empowerment isnt really helping society this day in time !!The album also mean Peace And Freedom From Modern Day Slavery. The album is very inspiring !! What are your short term career goals within the next 6-10 months? 10 months from now I’d love to see myself working with an actual production team. People who are open minded and willing to help me build just as hard as myself. I’d loved to see myself booked for venues and minor/major shows !
What are your long term career goals within the next 2-5 years?
2-5 years from today i’d love to be mainstream with other major artist nothing more nothing less ! If you had one song out of the catalogue you have created to show a person what song would it be and why? I would choose a track from my album ‘FriiMindFriiSpirit” Entitled “Better Days” , Why ? Because it speaks on when i dropped out of school an how my family turned their back, but yet and still i prosper an proceed to do better then what people think of me !
To the person who had never heard of you what is it about your music and story that you would tell them to entice them to be a supporter?
If you ever hear my music then that would be one reason, im to open minded, i think big, i enter act with people i dont act like im bigger then the next person cause we all equal in some form or fashion… another way of having people to support me is because im a peoples person. Every song i ever made has a meaning behind it and people can relate !! WE ALL STRUGGLE BEFORE !!!!
If your music could be described in five words what would those five words be?
Positive, Truth, Unique,Understanding, Valuable What do you bring to the game that is unique and different? i bring truth and love to all my fans and supporters. I even support other artist up an coming. My story and lifestyle makes me different my conversations an accusations are different. The way i delivery my bars and tone of my music is different. My voice and music style is different !! I Create my own sound to be different !!!
To the aspiring artist who is considering a career as a musician what lessons or advice would you give them to inspire them or to uplift them in the journey?
Honestly i would tell people to learn how to be criticized. Criticizing is one of the biggest things in the industry an it starts with one self. If you can defeat the criticizing you bring to yourself then no one else can bring you down by criticizing you !!
