Choose one adjective to describe your music style?
Your rhyming ability is amazing, how did you learn to rap so fast?
My favorite rappers growing up were Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Busta Rhymes. They rapped at very fast tempos. They were big influences to me in Hip Hop. It definitely took a lot of time and practice. But in due time I perfected it while creating my own style in the process.
Who is your ultimate inspiration?
My father is my biggest inspiration. He made me fall in love with music at a young age because he would play music all of the time. Everything from R&B to Hip Hop to Reggae; he was a fan of it all. It is because of him that I am very eclectic when it comes to making music and being a fan of music in general.
Do you write your own songs? If so, what are your songs about and where do you draw your inspiration?
Yes, I write all of my songs. My inspiration for my songs is my life. My music is about my happiness, my sadness, my pain, and my struggles, and how I view the world overall. My musical inspiration comes from my experiences and the knowledge I am gaining from them.
