What first got you into music?
What got me into music is actually listening to hip hop. When I was a kid I used to sit in front of the tv and watch music videos all day long. I watched BET, MTV, and Video Music Box then shortly after I got into reggae music heavy. I started out as a dancer then got into writing my own songs.
Who inspired you to make music?
I would have to say my mother’s old boyfriend Sprocket. Sprocket was a reggae dancer from Antigua who lived in New York, he taught me how to dance to reggae music. He would dance at reggae parties and I would follow his lead eventually being able to add my own spice to it which led me to create my own dances. Then from dancing I took it to another level and started learning how to put songs together.
I was already writing poetry and was good at so it was easy for me to transition into writing songs.
