What inspired you to make music?
My cousins inspired me to start making music. They were always creating beats and rapping. I observed them and got hyped about the whole culture. I started as a teen and never stopped after writing down my first verse. I make music inspired by my experiences, my life, the stories I hear and things I see on a daily basis.
What are your thoughts on the industry and where you fit in?
I think the music industry is wide open. All musicians can find their niche and audience. I feel that I can fit in anywhere — hip-hop, R&B, trap, and everything around it.
What would you say makes you stand out from the average rapper?
My versatility and my grind are different. I blend genres and try to find the most unique sounds possible. My flow is honest.
