What drew you to the music industry?
My Cousins Used to Rap and My Grandfather was a Legendary Jazz Musician In Flint Michigan His name is Sherman Mitchell, My pops play piano and I played the drums in church. I started making Music In the Army I served 9 years and Still going hard
Who are you inspired by?
The funny thing is no one in particular I’m inspired by a lot of things, art athletes music people overcoming hardships stuff like that.
Please explain your creative process?
The music has to be kind of loud in my headphones I write all over the page its kind of like a puzzle. I usually write the hook first unless I’m really feeling the lyrics at that time. I smoke hella blunts but I don’t drink.
What’s an average day like for you?
I wake up around 7am go to the gym, talk to my kids promote my music, go to school make films write record daily, smoke go to the beach and kick it wit random chicks.
Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music?
Yea sometimes it depends on the song for example betrayed is about being double crossed by someone close to you whom you have trusted. I think people can relate to that message
Do you collaborate with others? What is that process?
Yes I work with a lot of artists, as long as they pay my feature price ill either pull up to the studio or we can send the files Via drop box
Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans
I always respond and interact with fans I send free tracks singed merchandise to fans directly I support them like they support me I love all of them! What is your favorite part about this line of work? Your least favorite? Why?
My Favorite part is being on that stage and the fans know the lyrics the love and appreciation for the music on their faces is a great feeling. My least is I gotta stay strapped and aware of my surroundings there’s always somebody tryna take your spot no matter what you do haters are everywhere.
