Follow on social media for exclusive updates and behind the scenes looks.
What first got you into music?
I’ve been into music my entire life, from listening to music as a young child. From being in band for years, I’ve always loved Hip-Hop and when I was 18 I fully devoted myself to rhyming and beats.
Who inspired you to make music?
. My inspirations as far as emceeing go are Nas, the members of The Wu-Tang Clan, Lupe Fiasco, and The Notorious B.I.G
How would you describe the music that you typically create?
. I lean toward traditional East Coast Hip-Hop. Heavy lyrical, highly conceptual, beats mostly centre around boom-bap. Subject matter varies from storytelling to mapping out concepts, discussing what shaped me as an adult. Also speaking on what are viewed as esoteric or eccentric.
What is your creative process like?
It’s easier when I’m writing specifically for an entire project or body of work. Whether it be a mixtape, album, or EP, because everything is being strung together while having a direct point of reference. When I make a project it has an overall theme or concept. Other than that without giving too much away I write from beginning to end.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
The artists who I mentioned as my influence other than that I’m open.
If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
I know this is going to sound bad, but when it comes to being booked the money needs to be right. If Michael Jackson came back from the dead (Rest In Peace) I might have another answer.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
If you love what I do, never hesitate to let me know!
What is the most useless talent you have?
Debating, it’s gotten me into a lot of trouble with the early days of social media.
Do you sing in the shower? What songs?
. I don’t sing in the shower, but I sing everywhere I go . Mostly practising songs I’m singing, and that’s for when I do shows.
Whats ON next for you?
Working on marketing and getting this debut album out correctly!
