It’s hard to fine Someone that wants to Learn or Just put in work with. I’m Good with a Camera and You know, camera work has a Learning curve that’s intimidating so to have that extra Hand and Creative mind behind a Camera is Fire! S/o to Lu , Kill, Robbie for Doing Their Acting scenes ! S/O to 16 and 40 for being the Extra Hands On the Set. We Learned a lot From it it It’s not Easy but Quality will only go up !

We’re just So Different and diverse, it could be the Curse of why we are finding it hard to break out the Algorithm haha.

10. How do you balance maintaining your individual artistic identity while collaborating with producers and featured artists?


It’s Fairly easy because I’m A “behind the scenes” type of guy before I’m an Artist. I like To Just create that. Imperative environment to my Class, showing Consistency and Motion . Feels good to See The Timeline Push Content when I do because I love to see my Class PUTTING in work. Some People Quit and Some Barely work so good to see the ones who want it Shine !



11. What themes or messages did you aim to convey through "Ratted Me Out," both musically and lyrically?

Time. I really work damn near 12 hours a Day so Finding time Between every one’s Schedule especially mine it was just really hard, like This Was Suppose to be a 4 song Project then it ended up Being 1 Song Dropping, so if that doesn’t Explain the Struggles haha. (don’t worry I will drop the Other 3 song ;) )
