Whose music did you grow up on?

Webbie, Boosie, Chief Keef, Gucci Mane.

When it comes to your lyrics, what motivates/inspires you?

My lyrics come from situations I have been through as well as people around me and the environment I grew up in.

What do you look for in beats you’re selecting?

I make most of my own beats but when looking for a beat from another producer I like up tempo beats that make you bob your head soon as it comes on.

What do you consider your biggest accomplishment?

Teaching myself how to make beats, mix & master then applying that to self produce my own mixtape "Every Dolla Counts"

Favorite movie? and why?

Varsity Blue. I love football and it shows how the team had to come together from different adversities to accomplish there goals.

Besides music what other hobbies do you have? Please tell me about your typical day

I play am in college and play football. Since school is starting back I while go to class in the mornings, go to practice in the evenings, and work on music at night and weekends after games.

Whats the best piece of advice that has been ever given to you?

If you don't believe in yourself no one will.

How does it feel when you perform live? Describe your live performance

I enjoy sharing my music. When I preform I show the crowd I actually know my words and that I can't actually rap. Seeing fans engage during performances adds move energy to the performance in my opinion. 

What are your thoughts on how things are going in the music industry right now?

I think that now is the time to go the hardest. Being I'm from Baton Rouge which is the 2nd in America for emerging artist. Thanks to artist like Boosie, Kevin Gates, NBA YoungBoy, Scotty Corleone, Mouse On Tha Track, etc.

What are your plans for longevity in this business of music?

I've started 1300 Block Records with younger my brother. Also I understand that music changes with time so being opened minded to trying new things are a must. 

If you could work with one person who would it be?

That's a hard decision but I have to go with Chief Keef. He's my biggest inspiration in the music industry.
