–Start of the interview–
Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?
I’m Haitian & Dominican, my momma Haitian and my dad a Dominican. I have 4 brothers 1 sister. 1 of my brothers doing 10 years in person, another one lives in France. I was born and raised in Delray Beach, FL. I grew up very poor, music is something that allowed me to escape my reality. Done a few things that got me locked up. but I got my head on straight change the ppl that was around me and now I’m on this music heavy making a lil noise.
Where are you from?
I’m from Delray Beach, FL.
When did you start music?
Starting making music in high school but didn’t take it seriously til 2015.
How did you get into music?
Well I started of Dancing because I was a huge fan of Michael Jackson, I couldn’t sing like him but I knew I could Dance like him, but when my older brother introduced me to Bone Thugs & Harmony that’s when I knew this was my calling because they was kinda  singing and rapping at the same time and that’s something I knew I could do.
What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
When my mom went to prison for a few years for selling drugs, & when she got out she got terminally Ill, where she couldn’t work any more to pay the bills and we ended up getting evicted with my whole family and having to live in the car with my mother and taking showers at my friends house. So I did what I had to do, sell drugs, sell beats, make websites, & work a 9-5 just so we can rent out a spot to live in.
Are you currently signed or independent?
Who inspires you the most musically?
Michael Jackson.
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
That they can always be themselves, even if you can be a hood nigga you still watch anime, you could be a hood nigga and still play videos, you can be a geek but still bust a nigga head open lol.
Any new music coming out soon?
Yes, I just dropped a new single “Annie” inspired by Michael Jackson.
What is your greatest achievement as a musician?
Going on tour, and getting a song placement on a video game app called WeedFirm2.
Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?
Yes, I produce a lot of my music, but I have 2 close friends that produce most of my beats now.  Rever Deep is my main producer and he’s also a DJ as well. And I have my other close friend ChristianTendo who I taught how to make beats, and now he’s better than me lol
Who is one artist you wish you could work with?
Most of the artists I wish I can work with are dead like Michael Jackson, or JuiceWrld. but if you are talking about artists that are alive today, then I would say Eminem.
Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is it coming out? What is it
Well I just dropped the video for “Annie” today and it’s about one of my relationships that ended by that I regret messing up. You have to watch and listen to how the story unfolds. It’s a bit of a plot twist.
What does a day inside your shoes look like?
Wake up, check my crypto stocks, go to my 9-5 come back home make a few beats, maybe write a song, smoke a few joints, watch some anime & play some video games then fall asleep and do the same thing the next day. And I can’t forget, I do turn up a bit in the clubs which people know me for the party animal lol.
Anything else you want the audience to know about you?
