City of Birth/Current City:
How long have you been into music, and what was your attraction? I grew up around music. My Dad was a singer. Music got played all the time at my house. Around 18 years old. I started hanging out at my cousin's house. That’s when I fell in love with the process of making music.
What other talents do you have? Working with kids is the best talent that I have. I’m a basketball official. I also work with people that have developmental disabilities. I’m a great listener too.
Tell us about some recent events/projects I recently released 2 songs. 1 called I Gotta Make It. The other one is called Break.
What do you like most about music and creating it? I like the fact I can have a positive message. My wife and kids enjoy my music. I love the process of creating music.
What is your short-term music goal? Honestly to have fun. Continue to create positive music.
What is your long-term music goal? Pass it down to my children. So they can have my studio. So they can create music for themselves.
Who or what has been your biggest influence when creating music? My family first. I can name a lot of people. Al Mecca, Snap, Dez Tha Reason, Javis, Larry, and all the different artists I have listened to over the years. Lots of west coast music.
What type of adversity have you had to overcome while pursuing your dreams? I couldn’t rap when I first started. I knew how to write but didn’t understand how to combine it. I struggled to make beats at first as well. Now I can do both.
Thus far what is a standout moment of your career? I released my first song in 2018 called God’s Plan. I received 30k streams in 2 weeks.
How do you stand out among other artists? I choose to speak about what God has done in my life. I’m very blessed to be alive. That’s my drive for making music.
Tell us a fact about you I just bought NBA JAM the actual arcade game. I had to have one.
B.O.S.S. Code Stands for Business Over Social Stress. How can you relate to that in your life and career goals? Business is a major part of my life. I work for myself. I try my best to avoid social stress. I have to focus on running my business. It’s how I take care of my family.
