Hey Mic how you feeling right now?
Im good, thank you
How did your get your Start in Music?
When i was a kid my parents used to work at this old farm lookin house owned by the family and next to it was my cousin Big James house (rest in peace) Big James had a piano in his house and i used to sit at the piano all day while my parents worked and i made up songs to myself. Im a firm believer in things you do as a child impact your adult interests so in that case i started on my cousin’s piano.
What kind of Music has Inspired you to make the type of Music you make?
All genres from rap, rnb, jazz, pop, funk, reggae, rock ,and the list goes on and on.
Whats your Process on putting together a Song?
Ultimately it depends on what strikes me at the moment. I can make a beat and a song automatically pops in my head
or vice versa.
Now that your Single is out tell us what Inspired you to drop this Song in particular and no other Record?
I really was going for the theme on how smoking weed is addictive but the addiction is in no way, shape, form or fassion a negative addiction.
I believe in the legalization of weed and im sure all of the smokers in the world feel the same so, why not?
You are a Producer/Rapper/ what is your Favorite Equipment making a Beat?
Propellerhead Reason,MPC100, and my M-Audio midi controller. Producer talk i guess.
Tell us about your Mixtape “the Reason” wasnt you supposed to drop a Mixtape titled the Virus? What happended with that?
The Reason is titled in honor of my wife and i having a child soon and I gotta support and protect my family by any means so i use my gift as a producer and rapper to do just that. I can definitely tell you its going to be a super hot tape due to the fact i put together a whole new sound. The Virus was supposed to drop but i threw it to the side to restructure the sound of the project, it just didn’t satisfy my ears.
real Quick Questions:
Top 5 MC`s?
2Pac, Easy E, DMX, J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar
Top 5 Producers?
Just Blaze, Justice League, J.Cole, Kanye West, DJ Paul/Juicy J
What advice would you give upcoming Artists on their Journey?
I’ll tell you like my homie Troy told me, sky is the limit, and that’s real as you make it.
If its something you really wanna do, its no man,woman, fear, or challenge so great to tell or show you that you cant do it.
Any last Words?

On lessons from her mom: Being resilient. No matter what, never giving up on your dreams. It sounds cliché but it’s so real. She grew up struggling, but she was always very positive, no matter how bad things came. We kept a positive outlook because your perception is everything. It is your reality. That is something I want to pass down to my child. My mom was very into inner beauty. She would say all the time, “Being cute is cute, but who are you on the inside?”
On lessons she's learned: Starting my career, there was a lot of rejection going on. I remember my dad telling me that if you let that define you, they’ll basically make you nothing. You have to define yourself. Every time you hear a no, it’s one step closer to a yes. Jobs come and go, so I don’t get too down on myself. You have to stay self-motivated. If you wait for someone else to motivate you, you’ll bewaiting for a long time. You have to really be your own cheerleader. Even if you don’t feel all that way in the moment, tell yourself that you’re enough.
On who she is: I’m still growing and still learning. I’m okay with the process. I understand the growing pains a little more than I did. I’m more trusting with the process and it doesn’t come easy. I question it sometimes.
