When did you start doing Music?
I started my music career about 10 years ago. I started off with: Audacity, a notebook, a pen and determination to become a G.O.A.T not only in music, but in everything I pursue.
Tell us a little about your childhood?
Growing up I was always active, determined and hardworking. I was raised by my Granny due to my mother dying the night before my third birthday and my father not being involved in my life at all. I used to attend private school as a child, but seen and experienced a certain lifestyle outside of that. I always knew that I would be the one to make a change and the right decisions learning from other individuals’ mistakes.
Which artist do you share similar styles with?
I feel that I am in the realm of Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Gucci, Kanye, Diddy, King Louie and more. Those are just a few, I feel that we are the same area as far as: subject matter, business, mindset and rare.
Who’s your Favorite rapper of all time and Why?
Ahhh. This one is not as easy. I listen to a lot of music and genres. I usually rock with my man Gucci. FREE GUCCI!! People always have a negative aspect or perspective on him, but he has A LOT of credibility. People say he can’t rap or don’t really talk about anything an that is simply because they cannot relate. To the lifestyle, the struggle, the suffering, the luxury; that is why people never grow because they never give individuals the opportunity and chance. He has put artists on a pedestal without trying to let them get their shine like: Nicki Minaj, Young Thug, Peewee Longway, Migos, Waka Flaka, Fetty Wap, Chief Keef, hell even Andy Milonakis. Same with Jay-Z, Kanye, J.Cole, Nipsey Hussle, Drake and other credible influences that people say are not good artists, it is simply because they cannot relate and are small minded.
How did you feel when you won your first HHS title?
I felt appreciated. Everybody from the showcase shared their love and support when we won which made the feeling that much glorious. I perform for the people not for me or my brother OG. I feel as if you paid to see a show, so a show is what you shall get. I am hungry for more titles, but I am even more hungry for the exposure and giving the supporters what they want and give them their monies worth, whether they know the material or not.
Who was your toughest competitor at a Hip Hop SeaZon Showcase and why?
I feel as if James Lion is a tough cat. I respect the heart he put in his performance and his music is respectable. I rock with the Ave Boyz and my Midwest people from the D.
Who’s your celebrity Crush?
Y’all tryna get me in trouble out here. Hahaha. I had a little thing for a couple celebrities back in the day. Lauren London was one, Keke Palmer was another, Miss Megan Good was in my vision. But right now I cannot attest to that question. Hahaha.
What was your most memorable moment at a Hip Hop Seazon Showcase?
My most memorable moment was standing on top of the bar. I feel as if you want to win you have to just ball out. Also winning was a luxurious feeling. Thanks HHS.
Where do you see yourself 3 years from now?
In 3 years I see myself having more business, pharmacy school and still rocking the stage.
Any shout outs you’ll like to make?
I want to thank the Lord himself because without him none of this would have never been possible. A BIG BIG BIG Ups to Hip Hop Seazon: Michael and Jonathen Chillz, Paco,Hector, Smooth, Emma Mac, Kruz, Shaon and Sabrina for not only helping us and other artists get more exposure, but for being personable, honest and fair. I want to work with HHS more and get more stuff rolling because this a great platform. I also want to shoutout Ahmed Rodriguez from The Breakfast Club and the whole Power 105.1 for keeping it 100. Also Video City for granting us an opportunity with them as well. LAST but NOT LEAST, ALL the artists and supporters that attended or performed in Hip Hop Seazon 16, much love, much respect and keep grinding.
