How did you get your start in music?
I’ve always loved music, its something I just grew up around. From being at church and watching the drummer beat on the drums, to sitting in my aunt’s basement and studying my uncle create beats in FL Studio. I always believed music was something I could be great at. However, it wasn’t until 2016 when I created a YouTube channel and began to film myself that I realized I loved being in front of the camera. Once I realized video and music production went hand and hand I began to pursue a career in music.
How long have you been making it?
I’ve been doing music for almost two years now but as far as creating my own, I would only say about six months. My YouTube videos are actually where I gained a fan base. After I learned how to translate my YouTube following to more social media outlets such as Instagram and Facebook, I began to emerge as a musical artist and gain notable attention.

Who are your influences?
Inspired from genres as broad as Hip/Hop and Pop to Gospel and Soul. I really grew up listening to everything. I’m heavily influenced by Meek Mill but I also take notes and study other artist from Young Dolph and Calboy to Usher and Hezekiah Walker. I’m always looking to take pointers and find ways to improve as not only an artist but a brand as well.
What motivates you?
One thing that motivates me is growth, I love seeing numbers multiply. No matter if its my likes and followers on Instagram or my views and subscribers on YouTube. I just appreciate when my stats are increasing. That lets me know I’m doing something right and ultimately progressing.
What are you currently working on?
Right now, I’m currently heavy on promo. Always networking, creating ideas and marketing campaigns to help assemble more fans and build anticipation for my debut studio single releasing later this summer.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I’m so young, in five years I’ll just be turning 21. However, in five years I see myself definitely more established as an artist with a greater, more versatile catalog of music. I know my business mentality will only grow even stronger. I also have plans on establishing my own record label/production company where we help our costumers preferably artist, distribute their music, create marketing strategies, websites, graphic designs and more.
What is your opinion on the current hiphop scene?
I feel like a lot of the time Hip Hop gets a bad rep. I really don’t pay much attention to the naysayers though, I know the difference between good and bad music. Hip Hop is really the genre that creates the waves that everyone else rides.
Anything else you would like to say?
I appreciate all the love & support I’ve been getting so far.
