What City & State are you Reppin?
I’m from little ‘ol Champaign, IL
Who are your Influences?
My pops, O.G., Dave Coresh, #Gr8 Thinkaz, Jay Electronica, JCole, Lupe, Lauryn Hill, Jay-Z have been my greatest influences in Hip Hop…to name a few
When did you know you would become an artist?
I’ve wanted to be a rapper before could write in cursive, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that realized that this is my destiny. My pops used to rap and had me doing it at a very young age.
How is your music different from what we’ve been hearing?
My music is genuine and versatile. I’m a story teller. I talk about the shit been through, I talk about love, I talk about shit that’s relevent to my generation. Everything is from my heart and more often than not my life experiences. it’s daring & creative…sometimes writing becomes difficult because I have to balance my deeper thoughts with what my listeners will vibe with. But i think i’m doing alright.
How would you describe your style of music?
Just dope! lol i’m kiddng, I would just call it hip-hop
If there was anyone you could work with who would it be & why?
This chick Tiara Thomas, she’s on Wale’s B.O.A kind of an up and coming right now but she has a huge following. She’s crazy dope. I would love to work with her one day, as well as anyone of my influences…especially Cole. & Add-2 out of chicago…I’d also love to do some fresh shit with OF and A$AP, and step outside of Hip Hop to create some non genre specific music.
Who are some artists you’ve worked with in the past?
All the artists I’ve worked with up to this point have been local, fellow emcees.
