Who or what inspired you to start making music? And, when did you start?
Music was always a big outlet for me but XXXTENTACION was the first artist that made me feel like I could make it as an artist and I made my first song the day he was killed in June 2018.
What is your biggest challenge as an artist?
Finding like-minded individuals to collaborate with mutually.
What is your favorite project or single you have released?
Early in my career, I rapped over Earl Sweatshirt’s track “Riot”. It’s still on my SoundCloud to this day.
Who are your inspirations? What artists or bands are you listening to?
I am constantly inspired by everything around me but being a 2000s baby. I think Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Drake, and Eminem are responsible for my approach to music.
What’s the process behind working on a song like?
Lately, I just show up to the studio and do whatever feels right I’m mostly just venting or manifesting in my music.
Tell me about your upcoming music and what inspired you to create it!
I’ve been inspired by 93feetofsmoke, Grim Ox, davidthetragic, and tons of other experimental artists.
What are your plans for 2024?
Ideally music videos and live shows. I just need a reliable team.
Have any shoutouts?
None of this would have been possible without all the people who never believed in me or supported me. I owe everything to them.
