Tell us about your background, what have you gotten to where you are today?
Consistency, over the top product, and just the support from so many different people really. I was dropping music a lot on a frequent basis and they were quality tracks too.
Where are you from?
I am from Dallas, Texas.
When did you start music?
I started making music late 2018 early 2019 but really started taking it serious 2020.
How did you get into music?
I started listening to Rap and Hip Hop and i just thought it would be so cool if i had my own song so I started off making beats at home on my laptop and later transitioned to the rap scene. I prefer to be alone and ignore my problems but when im making music it helps me its a way for me to express myself im really antisocial. I don’t really talk to a lot of people.
What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
The most challenging thing that i overcame in my life was when I first came over to the united states. Learning the English language and adapting to the lifestyle over here.
Are you currently signed or independent?
I am currently Independent but I have been approached by a handful of labels for distribution deals and I dont plan on signing anytime soon unless I get a real good offer.
Who inspires you the most musically?
The person that inspires me the most musically is Nav. Typically brown kids are raised and always told to be like a engineer or a doctor but now its like Oh shit Rapper too. And he has shown me a bunch of love.
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
I want the people to enjoy my songs and share them with their friends. Also i want to inspire other kids to do what they want to do and follow their dreams. You got one chance at life make sure you dont have any regrets later on cause then itll be too late. You dont want to be in your 70s and 80s thinking back on how you shouldve done this or how you shouldve done that. Just go do it.
Any new music coming out soon?
Yeah I got a bunch of tracks in the vault that I’m planning on dropping soon and defintely a bunch of more visuals this year as well. I’ve managed to get some features from some big artists so defintely be on the lookout for that. I’m still working on mastering my sound so 2021 is gonna be a crazy year for me.
What is your greatest achievement as a musician?
I did a remix to 21 savages bank account which went pretty viral and really helped me reach a whole different audience. I’ve gotten some co signs from some big people in the industry too. But I think my greatest achievement is just connecting with my fans and building that relationship with them because there is a big difference between a listener and a fan.
Do you produce your own music? If not who do you work with?
I have produced a few of my tracks by myself but most of the time I work with other producers. Really I network with other producers over the internet or ill just scroll through the beatstars websites and if I hear something I like I’ll just add to my cart and buy a lease or if im really feeling it the exclusive. I also get a bunch of beats sent to me through email from upcoming producers who are just trying to get placements and a lot of them are actually super talented. Ive worked with some big producers too like CashMoneyAp and 16yrsold.
Who is one artist you wish you could work with?
Drake, He’s my favorite rapper I’ve been listening to him since I was young and we all know the power of a Drake feature. He’s also someone I really look up too.
Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is coming out? What is it about?
I got a album dropping in Mid 2021 with some big name features on it. It’s about me and just situations that I overcame these past couple months. I’m very versatile so its going to be about a whole bunch of topics.
