(Dee)in 5years I see myself doing good in the music industry and hopefully signed or making independent in the game.At least a million strong off music.
What is your opinion on the current hiphop scene?
(Jay) if you ask me the correct music scene right now is all fabricated. A lot of artist are portraying to be something or someone they aren’t. Then you got all this so called “beef” and most of it revolves around social media it’s all fake and for publicity to me. That’s why i stay to myself and in my own lane I jus want them M’s
(Dee) the hip hop scene now seen easier to make it now with all different technology and ways to get your music out there on the scene it seem fun to me I’m ready for it.
