When did you start doing Music?
When I was 5 Years Old
Tell us a little about your childhood?
My Childhood Was Pretty Good! I Grew Up In two sets of projects in Moss Point, MS. Times Were Hard But My Mom always taught me to make the best out of every situation, get an education and treat all people with respect. She use to say, “It’s Nice To Be IMPORTANT, But It’s Important To Be NICE!” That Has Always Stuck With me! I started getting involved in my grandmother’s church around 6 years old and that is when music became my world. My childhood is filled with talent competitions, poetry competitions, school plays, church plays, community plays, music road trips, community theatre plays, etc. It was a good childhood. We were on public assistance, food stamps, reduced lunch, public transportation, Medicaid, but we did not STAY there and I thank my mom and all those who loved me for making sure that I did not become a statistic.
Which artist do you share similar styles with?
PJ Morton, Anthony Hamilton, Musiq Soulchild, Al Green, Raheem Devaugn, Dave Hollister, D’Angelo, just to name a few.
Who’s your Favorite singer of all time and Why?
Donnie Hathaway is my ALL TIME FAVORITE SINGER IN THE WORLD! That man knew how to work a SONG and make you feel every syllable! To Be Young Gifted and Black is one of my favorite songs because it speaks to who I am as an Artist. He is gone too soon.
How did you feel when you got signed by Universal?
Man, I was ECSTATIC!!! The journey has been great so far! The company has gone through a restructuring and they are even more attentive than they were before. They really seek the input of the artist.
Who was your Toughest competitor at a Hip Hop Seazon Showcase And Why?
Mason “Frickin” J! This guy does what he does well! He has more sex appeal than I have lol! I like my music to hit your SOUL but Mason J can get a woman to feel “something else” when he performs! #ShoutOutToMasonJ
Who’s your celebrity Crush?
Kelly Rowland is who I am crushing on right now! I am a Legs man and she has some very sexy legs! It also doesn’t hurt that she a wonderful personality, amazing singing voice, and an incredible sense of class also!
What was your most memorable moment at a Hip Hop Seazon Showcase?
Aside from getting signed, it would have to be the VERY FIRST TIME that I sang ” I Miss You!” To See the look on those brothas faces was priceless! They were looking like, ” Yeah Man! I’m Feeling This Joint Right Here Son!” LOL! #CompletelyMadeMyNight
Where do you see yourself 3 years from now?
Hopefully a better artist with a few albums under my belt and being musically satisfied with myself! I’m excited about the journey man! A lot has happened for me these last 7 months and I am looking forward to next phase of my career! I have a manager who is excited about my growth and he has been working very hard on my behalf and I am so grateful!
Any shout outs you’ll like to make?
I would Like to send a HUGE shoutout to Michael Chillz, Shaon Lindsey, and the entire Hip Hop Seazon team! They are doing BIG THINGS for LITTLE ARTISTS and it is very humbling to be apart of the movement! Without them, I don’t know if I would have been rejoined this music industry. I’m a corporate guy and have been for the last 6 years and I want to thank them for reintroducing me to my original passion and that is MUSIC! I owe them more than they will ever know!
