Where are you from? Have your surroundings shaped you in a creative sense, and in what way?
I am from Indianapolis, Indiana. The underground scene here is very diverse and it has shaped me into the artist I am today. We’re still very slept on in my opinion, but we just keep going harder.
What’s your background like?
I grew up with my mom, my sister, and my grandparents when I was young. My mom worked three jobs just so me and my sister could get what we needed. I’ve had a lot of struggles in life and I want it to inspire kids that you can be anything you want to be, no matter what your background is.
Who are your top 5 favorite artists?
My top five favorite artists are: XXXTentacion, Lil Uzi Vert, A$AP Rocky, Playboi Carti, and The Weeknd. I have way more but that’s just five.
What made you start making music?
I started making music because I was always around it my whole life. I grew up listening to a lot of rap and rock. Later on, I decided to start actually making music because it was something I enjoyed doing and it helped me express myself.
Who are your biggest influences?
My biggest influences are: Christian Taelor, Larry Cartier, XXXTentacion, Tyler, The Creator, and Lil Peep.
What’s your favorite song at the moment?
My favorite song at the moment would have to be: “MD4L” by: ✰strip ✰ , or “Budokai” by: Nathan Burton.
What keeps you going? How are you doing mentally?
I just wanna keep going hard for my family and my collective. I wouldn’t be where I’m at now without my mom and I want to make sure she’s straight. I want to put my collective on the map, show our talent and inspire kids around the world. I am doing very good mentally right now and have overcame a lot in the past year. I’ve been put through a lot, I learned to stay positive no matter the situation and it has helped me distance myself from negativity.
How would you describe your style?
My style is very versatile and unique. All of my music sounds different and it depends on how I’m feeling at the moment. My main sound is aggressive type rap, but I experiment with melodic sounds a lot.
What do you hope to accomplish in 2019?
I’m just going to keep dropping music and I want to keep going up in numbers, I want to drop a tape with my collective (which is in the works right now), perform at more shows, and keep leveling up as an artist.
