Please explain your creative process My creative process is a little unorthodox; I typically look for a beat that fits my current mood or atmosphere. I then start with making the worst sounds known to mankind to find my melody and cadence. From there the magic starts to happen as words start to form. I write until I get chills that’s when I know I have something.
What’s an average day like for you? My day typically starts with watching sports or reading music news. From there I’m on YouTube looking for beats. I hop in my car and I drive until I find a beat that intrigues me.
Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music? Yes there are several meanings in all of my song but I wont tell. You will have to listen closely to figure them out.
Do you collaborate with others? What is that process? Yes I collaborate with others, typical artist reach out to me and depending on if I am feeling the song or see the potential in the song that’s how I determine if I am going to go through with the collaboration.
