My biggest inspiration was Michael Jackson.
What did getting into music look like at first for you?
I use to sing and record music with my cousin William an artist known as SKAHLI. I would rewrite the songs by Luther vandros and Rkelly. I would make love notes of them and sing to the girls in my classroom. I later joined 2 local hip-hop groups.

Saude and goone squad. We would perform for small crowds in the neighborhood.
What made you stop making music for a while?
I stopped Singing and songwriting Around the age of 16 dropped out of H.S and started working full time at subway franchise in the Chicago land area to provide for my 2 children. I relocated to N.C and did warehouse work. Around the age of 20 I felt as if I wanted more success out of life but jumping back into a singing career didn’t cross my mind. So I enrolled in a adult education program And was determined to get my H.s diploma. I later relocated to IN where I worked for a large grocery chain Strack and Van Tils. There I would show case my singing talent on the intercom announcing our sales for the week singing.
After taking a break what made you want to start making music again?
I met my music producer / engineer Michael Gardner (MaestroG Productions). Michael taught me how to record and mix music afterwards he would completely mix and master and my releases. Together we developed the brand Kush Driver. Since then I wrote and recorded over 40 tracks and performed at several venues. I produce and writer all my music. I also learned how to record my own music videos.
What is the most challenging thing about being an artist?
My most challenging thing I had to get use to is being away from my children. A day in my shoes is like a marathon I’m constantly pushing forward from sun up to sundown.
What do you want people to take away from your music?
My music will take people to a unknown realm of harmony. Along the way I’ve met a lot of new faces that have help me get closer to my Ultimate goal and that’s to own thousands of real estate properties… Music is passion.
