1) From your perspective, how has your life influenced your music? Following up on that, how has music inturn changed your life?
▪I just talk about stuff that I go through in life or what I see going on around me. Also at times, I make music on how I feel someone else would feel in a situation, so that other people that are going through what I'm making music about, feel like they're not alone. Its good to know that some else understands you.
▪Music just keeps me productive and also steers me on a straight path, away from all negativity.
▪Making music brings me peace, and I feel like its kind of my calming mechanism.
2) When did you first get into the music industry and how did you make that decision?
▪I began making music years ago from about 7 years ago just for the fun of it or something to do when I was just bored so that I wouldn't have time to cause trouble.
▪I used to be in and out of jail a lot to ever be consistent enough to do big numbers. Every time I would just get out of jail I would be to focus on the grind to even worry about the music.
▪Now I'm ready to put out work and see where it will take me.
3) Tell me a bit about your motivation to write the single, Shortie?
▪What inspired me to make my record "Shortie", was due to a past relationship. Instead of doing something I would regret I decided to put my emotions/anger into music.
4) How would you describe your own sound?
▪I have a distinctive rap voice that not every Toronto artist has, I have my own sound.
▪I love to make rap music but I also really like making catchy melodic songs that will get stuck in people's heads.
▪I like a lot of different genres of music, it's honestly whatever sound that catches my ear.
5) If you could collaborate with any artist or producer, who would it be?
▪I would really like to work with Murda beats, I've been paying attention to his beats throughout the years and I swear he can do anything.
▪An artist I would collaborate with would have to be Roddy Rich because he's amazing with his hooks, he has his own flow, and he just makes that music that everyone can relate to.
6) Do you have any resolutions for 2020? What are they?
▪My new year's resolutions for 2020 are just to drop as many hit records and as consistent as possible.
