Q: Who inspired you to pursue a music career?
A: I was inspired by a friend of mine from high school, who was a lead singer in a local band. Brandt, convinced me it was possible to pursue a career in music, we then formed a group with other classmates which did not last long but by then my drive had already been awakened.
Q: What challenges did you face as a youth in pursuit of your music?
A: The biggest challenges I faced early on in my pursuit were the lack of support and resources. A black boy wanting to be a rapper is nothing new and something my family had never seen done before, so it was difficult for them to understand how serious I was, in that decision. When I say lack of resources I’m referring to access to studio equipment and no money to pay for sessions or money to buy the equipment. Starting off a music career without support or resources was difficult but never impossible, it was a fight, and I’ve been fighting ever since.
Q: Describe your feelings when you’re recording music in the studio?
A: When I am recording I feel like I’m in a time chamber. Nothing goes on outside of the booth and even time ceases to exist. I am content in those moments. Nothing in the outside world matters but bringing this creation to life. I even forget to eat. If I could I would live in the booth forever.
Q: What is the message behind your music?
A: When I make music it always comes from my soul. It’s always honest. I want to use that soul baring honesty to touch someone else’s soul to help them through their hard times. Although there are times where moods change and different parts of me come out differently in different songs, it’s always honest. So my overall message to my listeners would be, do what’s good for your soul. “Music from the Soul Can Be Heard Through The Universe”
Q: What do you fear the most in this business?
A: I would say the fear I have is to reach my goal and then realize the sacrifices I have made were not worth it.
