When it comes to writing music, is there a source of inspiration or a routine you go through?
I started rapping seven years ago. The amount of confidence I had told me I should be a rapper, so I started rapping over beats that were mainstream but I didn’t take it seriously at the time. I don’t go through a process, but what inspires me is a good beat which I build my chorus around and that gives me a feel for the rest of the rap.
How has music as a whole changed your life?
It gives me a sense of freedom and I can escape into my own world which makes me happy.
Which artists did you listen to? Your music evolved quickly and your work on very diversified projects…What are your upcoming projects?
I listen to Biggie Smalls, 2pac, Ice Cube, Trap music and a wide range of genres.
I’m currently working on something about everyday life from a hustler/struggle point of view.
What do you expect to accomplish with your music and its message?
I would like to inspire others on a conscious level.
A piece of advice for young rappers?
My advice would be to never give up on being you.
