Who did you listen to coming up and gain inspiration from?
Growing up I listened to Chief Keef & Soulja Boy. I was inspired by the way soulja boy would use the internet and trends to further his career and stay relevant.
Your sound is super unique, I have ways I would describe it but I would love to hear it from you about how you would do so?
I say anything that comes to my mind punching in bar for bar. I would describe my music as victorious.
A lot of your music seems as if it is made with live shows in mind. Do you think about performing when you are creating or is it just a coincidence that your music lends well to shows?
I have never performed at a show yet. Sometimes I think about how I would perform or turn my vision into a music video while making the song.
Are you writing or is it just a lot of punching in? What does your process look like in the studio?
I record at home. I either find or create the instrumental then open my software and punch in bar for bar. Sometimes I’ll make a song and play 2K at the same time.
Where do you see yourself in the next 3 years? Is there anything you want your fans to know going forward?
In the next 3 years my community will be 10x bigger. I’ll have a clothing brand, record label, vlog channel, twitch, and my first movie script completed.
