Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?
Growing up I was always a risk-taker, in Uptown Manhattan it was difficult not to be. I had one pair of sneakers to last me for the year and while we weren’t poor, we weren’t rich. I owe it all to my mother who worked very hard to make sure that we had food on the table and a roof over our heads. When I was entering the 6th grade she made the sacrifice to admit me into private school, where I was shortly after expelled for misconduct (I told you I was a risk-taker) So where it all began for me was through that trial and tribulation, after going back to public school I decided to play sports and that’s when I began was pursuing my baseball dreams throughout high school, at that time I fell in love with music and used it to push me every day as I pursued my athletic career. After high school, things started taking off so I went to college in the Dominican Republic to play baseball and pursue my dream. Of course, I always wanted to be in the MLB however when I had an injury to my right shoulder those dreams were torn down when the doctor told me I would never be able to play the same again. Suffering from that injury, I had no other option than to go back to college and choose a career that would be beneficial for my future, I figured healthcare so off I went pursuing my nursing career. One class before graduating with my associate’s degree I received a text to meet up with a good friend of mine named Alex, now Alex wasn’t the smartest person from class so when he showed me that he made $40,000 in a single day from his cellphone, my attention was all his. There it was that I was introduced to Forex, which was now the vehicle I was going to take to fund my dreams as an artist. My life hasn’t been the same since.
Where are you from?
I grew up in Uptown Manhattan, Dyckman Road where I attended George Washington Highschool.
When did you start music?
I started actually recording my own music and working with other artists in early 2019.
How did you get into music?
My athletic career pushed me to listen to music as I trained and it was there that I fell in love with the power of music and what it can do for people.
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
That it’s okay to be different, that you can sound different, look different and still find your voice. That they can too believe in themselves as I have been all along.
Any new music coming out soon?
I’m working diligently behind the scenes to what I believe to hit releases for Feb and March.
