How is your music different from what we’ve been hearing?
My music is a combination of my poetry and hip hop. I’m not afraid to speak the truth and I don’t sugar coat shit.

How would you describe your style of music?
It’s hard to describe because its completely original, it’s a neo soul poetic hard alternative form if hip hop I guess I would say. Very very lyrical

If there was anyone you could work with who would it be and why?
Well there are so many I wouldn’t even kno where to begin. I’d have to say any one of my influences like Eminem, India Arie, Lupe Fiasco, JCole and Miss Lauryn Hill, but also Kendrick Lamar and Elle Varner, I love what there doing
