Where in the world are you located?
I’m from Upstate, New York. Olean to be specific.
What was your favorite past time when you were young?
When I was young I loved music and sports. If I wasn’t writing music I was outside playing football, basketball, lacrosse. You name it.
What was the very first CD you remember acquiring as a kid?
College Dropout. Still one of my favorite projects.
What was the first concert or performance you ever attended?
Local bar. Me and the team shut it down and nobody believed I never performed before.
At what age did you begin to take music seriously?
I was 19 when I decided to make music my career.
If you had the chance to play one of your pieces to the ENTIRE world, what song would you choose?
At this current point I would have to say Escape. The message is something the world needs right now.
Where did you find the inspiration for this particular track and what is the meaning behind the song?
To me the song is about searching for a getaway from my personal pain and the pain we feel as a society. It’s just what I see daily.
What do you think about the state of the music industry today and how would you like to see it change?
Honestly the industry is wild. Anything for a check. I come from a time and background where the culture of hip hop comes first. I want talent and work ethic to mean more than gimmicks.
What is one issue in the world that you would like to see change in your lifetime?
There’s too many, man. We come from gloomy skies. I guess I would really like to see this drug thing stop killing my peers.
What current projects are buzzing and what future projects do we have to look forward to from you?
I just dropped my project Lone Wolf with features from Mark Battles, Eearz and 12Fifteen. That one is doing good numbers now. I have tons of songs unreleased so if there’s one thing you can bet on it’s that a lot of new stuff coming.
Where can we find you on social media?
