By  | 

What first got you into music?

I was 9 years old and Eminem’s “My Name is”  Popped on Tv.
Hearing him  Rapp two words together the way he was doing had me hooked.

Who inspired you to make music?

Eminem, My Brother, Aaliyah,
Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and many more.

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

I would describe it as movies,
television series and real life events.
All 3 of those things make stories rather fiction or non fiction.

What is your creative process like?

A quiet dark room.
That sounds depressing, but my creativity begins with a dark room with silence and the words come together.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Wow! Hard question.
I would love to collaborate with Mark Johns,
She is very underrated.
6lack and definitely Jessie Reyez.
This is an unfair question because I have many collaborations I’ll love to do.

If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?

Kendrick Lamar most definitely.

What is one message you would give to your fans?
Stay true to who you are.

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

It has given opportunities to Artist like me to have a bigger platform.
Someone who hasn’t reach the masses.

Which famous musicians do you admire?


Ed Sheeran.
Have you seen that dude show live?
Bruh!
He plays all type of instruments and his voice sound like his cd live.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

Keep growing and never assume you know everything no matter how old you are.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

The Label’s with the contracts they sign artists into.
The advances they give artist who are not well known.
I feel like things are changing for the better.
Although, from experience when you don’t have a buzz and labels fly you out they give you low ball offers.

What’s next for you?

The Album.
“Solace In The Dark” is coming.
