Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I started making music in the 5th grade. I remember my friends and I made a whole song about McDonald’s and played it for our 5th grade class and I haven’t stopped since then. I grew up in Olney, Maryland and it was more or less relatively easy, only thing was it was mad boring. There was nothing to do especially for a black kid from a low mid class family so I found my way into the streets. It was clutch though because living in Olney my profit margin was insane. That’s the only reason I liked where I grew up. You got a mix of people and a non stop cash flow.
What do you value most from your country?
It’s people. We’re a perfect mix of everything. So many different ethnicities and backgrounds and up-comings. So many different minds and ways to think. When our country finally realizes that if we all come together and work as one there’s not one problem in the world we couldn’t fix.
Who influences you to go after your goals?
My family and friends and all the people who look up to me. I want to be the person they can look to and see that you can overcome any obstacle. Everything I do I do it for them. For my brothers in the streets who think the streets are they’re only way out. For my family who consists of some of the hardest working people I know just to make ends meet.
What advice can you give a teen about going through hardships?
You have to keep pushing. It wouldn’t be life without hardships but what separates those who are successful and those who aren’t is how you bounce back from those hardships. It’s all in how you take that L and flip it into a win even when it seems that all the odds are stacked against you. For so long it seemed to me that every time I took a win I was hit with 5 losses and I would be right back where I started but you have to keep going. You have to chase whatever dream it is that you have and do whatever it is to achieve it because if you give up on your dream it’ll change your life for the worse. I’ve seen it too many times.
If you and only three wish to change your family or the world’s life what would they be?
1. I would get trump tf out of office effectively immediately
2. I would wish for a couple months locked in a studio with the best producers in the game
3. All the sheets and funnel my poor lungs could handle
Was there a time u helped others out?
I always help my people out. If I fw you then I’ll do whatever you need. I’m big on loyalty and showing appreciation to those who stay loyal.
Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
Yes. Music isn’t paying the bills right now and trust me they’re piling up but as long as I’m making music there’s not a worry in the world.
What questions would you like me to make next for the new interviees coming to the website?
Ask them more about what got them to where they’re at now.
