Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?
Music was always there. Some of my earliest memories I have are from the back of my mommas car listening to Biggie and 2Pac on the radio. I started recording when I was like 16 with my big homie DMV Cannon, but never took it seriously. It was just fun to do. I always knew in the back of my mind I could be good at it, but I wanted to tell real stories and make authentic content so I waited. This music thing followed me and it takes me through some crazy times. I was comfortable making money, selling drugs, and partying. I watched a lot of bad shit happened to guys around me and the people who used the drugs. Music is something that’s been slowly soaking me in. You’re just witnessing my life through it.
Where are you from?
I was born in Arizona and moved to the DMV at 14.
When did you begin making music?
I started making music when I was 15 years old freestyling in the car.
How did you get into music?

Losing people in my life as well as drug and alcohol addiction.

Tell us more about the new music you have coming out, when is it coming out? What is it about?
My upcoming project, Borrowed Time is more street music but my second project will be aiming for a female inclusive audience. Borrowed Time is about taking advantage of second chances.
Who’s one artist who inspired you to create music?
What does a day inside your shoes look like?
I wake up and type on my phone. It’s a trick I learned from J. Cole. You just write anything that comes to mind. Then I work out and hit the studio or computer. I spend at least 20% of my day listening to beats or writing. That’s pretty much all I do.

I’m a real one and you should check out my music.
