How did you get your start in the game and where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
My start in hip hop started while I was living in Killeen, Texas. A guy by the name of Germaine Sawyer help me out a lot and show about writing and paperwork and how to be yourself. I see my self in 5-10 years being one of the hottest rappers out.
How long have you been in the Music game exactly and how has it shaped you as an artist?
I been in doing music for a while now independent and It has made me a smarter artist and patient.
As an upcoming rapper who did you really idol or compare yourself to?
I idol Bone Thugs & Harmony, but I have my own style doe. Crunk and Aggression.
As a person who has seen the highs and lows over time in this industry and what is your opinion on the game as it stands today?
Music is going to be around when me and you dead an gone. Never really changed but the lyrical content. Its a circle. But it is going to be more Digital Record Labels pushing more singles Instead of albums. And as artist, we need to go back to selling our music instead of always giving it away for free. Make money so you can maintain and keep promoting. Can't be a broke rapper smh.
Who have you worked with and what was your favorite and worst experience?
I worked with a lot of Independent artist and the worse experience I had was recording a whole track and then the engineer lost the whole song. So I had to do it all over smh. lol
