If anything accountability, why accountability you ask there is a common trend of a new artist coming out doing whatever to gain notoriety but once whatever catches up to them they wish to claim victim to their circumstances, that is bull. Its time folk think about what they put out there before they put it out here and even if there is a backlash. If you stand by your actions, there should be no reason to apologize or seek sympathy for them…accountability.
18.What Is Your Second Single Going To Be ?

Real Life Music, that’s what I say…I don’t trap, I don’t scam…I don’t pop pills…you won’t hear me speaking about killing people or calling females thots, that those guys. When you are listening to me, you are coming on a journey through my life, my experiences and these things are a reality both past and present. Things you can relate to, things that will hopefully motivate you, not just a bunch of cool words on a nice beat.
21.What Were You Thinking About When Your Songs Are Developed? Explain Your Process ?
I let the beat speak to me, I feel all songs have their own soul, and if you force it, you can mess up its spirit you have to just let it flow like some sort of symbiotic relationship.
22.Who Got You Started In The Rap Industry ?
The industry me, no one person in this industry as of yet has reached out or even replied to inquires of mentorship. Or working with me in that aspect, and to that, I take no offense just means I have more work to do on my own until I am a force in this industry that can’t be denied due to all I have accomplished on my own.
23.What Made You Want To Get Into The Music Business ?

24.How Does Your Family Feel About Your Music And Your Choice Of Career ?
My family is proud of me and my choices that lead me to this point, and truly support me in all I do. Wasn’t always like that but glad I was allowed to show them I could change for better.
25.What Is The Most Difficult Thing You’ve Had To Endure In Life ?
Being alone, growing up in the system and moving from place to place I never honestly felt as I had a foundation. You see everyone always leaning on others and realize you have to deal with these same things on your own. Learn on your own, and this ever since the age of 6. It is tough not having your parents there as a kid feeling unwanted, but I am thankful for the strength and confidence gained. Just took a long time to realize that not all of us are meant to grow in a group and that it was meant for me to walk alone. My parents don’t love me any less just had me young and life happened. That is the hardest thing to deal with, and as I answer this, I realize I am still dealing with it.
26.What Do You Hope To Accomplish With Your Music ?
Change, I hope to be part of the new wave of artist who doesn’t just make music because it will sell but because people will enjoy it. Music that motivates and encourages people to strive for better, to be happy, feel good and in the same breath be able to express themselves as well as being themselves not what the world wants them to be.
27.What’s The Demographic You Are Trying To Reach Out To ?
My demographic is 17-40 people of all races in many different stages of life. People who see the joy in life through all the pain being forced on though. Those who smile even when it hard to, that person getting back in the gym or taking up a new class/trade. Those of us who believe that love could still exist in a world so cold, those boss ladies tired of thots and hoes getting all the shoutouts and love, that’s who my music is for.
28.How Do You Usually Come Up With Your Songs ?
Depends on how I feel, my music is drawn from my emotion so depending on how emotional I feel and what feeling that is at the time will determine the song that I will create.
29.What Is Your Goal And Height That You Want To Reach With Your Music ?
I wish to shake hands with those who inspired me to have a seat at the table, a place that I earned through my hard work. To be able to give back to my community, to utilize a platform that too many are given and do nothing with and actually do something useful.
30.What Influenced You Outside Of Hip Hop Rap That Have Helped You Form Your Style ?
In all honesty, while going to Full Sail University the question early on was what makes you different from other Hip-hop artist and at the time it was nothing. So I went to learn how to fight Mixed Martial Arts and now have been training for 5 years consistent in many various forms, and the confidence and knowledge of what I can do allows me a peace that many rap artist in this industry don’t have. I mean if you’re scared to fight an lose then there is no reason for me to even argue with you, and in this industry of “tough” guys, it feels good to not feel you have anything to prove.
