What is your background? tell us where you grew up and some information about your upbringing/experiences as a youth:….
I’m from Huntsville AL grew up going to school and having a lot of experiences in different areas I remember living in Toney, AL near Ardmore, Hazel Green, AL And Madison AL as I got older I kinda understood my moms wanted us to always go to better schools and live a better life but things just couldn’t never go right it was always a higher place of living even though it was nice and she eventually couldn’t handle it though she is a hardworking lady.
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?….
I would honestly say I always was the kid in class free-styling being disruptive beating on the desk making jokes but people always would say “your pretty good” and I would always just say I’m just playing, but when I got caught up in juvenile from a couple of cases I use to write a lot of music in my spare time and at night in my cell just speaking on what I was going through so when I got out it motivated me to get in the studio having all those raps wrote.
What artists inspired/influences you and if you could collaborate with any artist (alive or passed) who would it be and why?…
Honestly In this day and time if I could collaborate with somebody I would have to say NBA YoungBoy because the fact he raps about a lot of stuff that he goes through and some stuff I can relate to also because of how good his streaming goes on various sites most definitely YouTube hitting 1mil in a day or two and how young he is.
What do you think about the current state of hip hop/mainstream music? …
I would have say I’m not a judging person and support everybody music but some people that’s in the industry needs to work on their craft and some needs to be more recognized.
Currently, what projects do you have in the works that you are most excited about?…
I just did my first Vlog and it was more successful then I thought it would be, but I have a lot of music that I have to get a lot of visuals done and that’s what I’m working on right now especially these projects named “Ball” and “Fast Life” I want to get those two on front cover of every big social music site.
What are your short term career goals within the next 6-10 months?…
Keep the grind going and putting my trust in the most high investing in myself and hoping I catch someones attention cause all it takes is one HIT and one EAR !!!
What are your long term career goals within the next 2-5 years?…
In the next 2-5 years I want my mom and sisters living rent free being able to pay for college for my little sisters and them never having to ever struggle again, for myself I want to go back to school and study getting my business liscence.
If you had one song out of the catalog you have created to show a person what song would it be and why?..
This is a hard question but back to the other question I would have to say “Ball” or “Fast Life” that being because those two projects are my most liked ones and the energy never changes for those two I guess I’ll never be a one hit wonder but at least two…
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?..
Everything I rap about is a story or a part of my life that I feel was major I’ve never just made up anything this real life I only let y’all know what’s going on in my lifestyle me saying “I came home stuff outside” this real not no fairy tale or nothing .
