1: Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

I’m from Baldwin Hills, California.

I got into music theory at 10 years old. I started my professional hip hop career in 2018.

The most challenging thing I’ve overcome was the passing of my grandmother. To this day, I still have difficult moments but I rest assured she watches down on me.

Currently I’m independent, and I’ll try to stay that way as long as possible.

My biggest musical inspiration is Andre 3k. I think he’s the most underrated artist ever.

I want people to feel empowered and part of something real. I go through trials like everyone, but we can all emerge triumphant.
8: What is your greatest achievement as a musician?
My greatest achievement musically would either be winning the Backwoods Cigar Showcase, or the first time hearing myself on the radio. Passing 60,000 streams for “She don’t eff wit rappers” felt pretty good too.

I do not produce my own beats, but i work with a couple producers. Snapz, a platinum producer from Michigan is one of my major contributors.

Two new songs, “iRock” and “iKnow why” will be out this summer. They’re about that feeling you get driving down the coast with the water on your left and wind in your face.
