For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough..then tell us more!!
Energetic, passionate, and life
When you are writing a song, where do you draw inspiration from? Or what topics do you like to write or sing about?
All my music comes from true stories and situations I deal with, dealing with, or dealt with trying to get to my goal in life. No matter if its family issues or finding a way to feed my children. Whatever words come to mind when I pick up my pen and my pad is what flows, and it all comes out as this story, that has turned into actual music and now projects.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
BALLIN!! I hit the court, catch up on my sports. Of course being a D.C native, depending on the season got to make sure I catch a Wizards game and support my Redskins. Spend time with my kids and love all over them, before it's time to get back to the grind!
If you were to create your favorite playlist of other artists music, what would your top 3 songs be? And, what artists have influenced your music the most?..
Can't Live Without You - Pretty Ricky, Yo Gotti - Loco, and Lucifer - Jay-z. Yo Gotti, such an underrated artist coming in the game and as always the proof that patience and steady grind will outshine the doubters. Snoop Dogg, T.I, and Master P. All great influences and businessmen.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it? Emotional doesn't have to mean sad etc., it can be a high energy too...(sad, happy, angry, fear,etc.)
I would have to say IV Everything featuring Marley. This track means more to me now than it probably did when I made it. It samples my grandma's voice, who passed away and who meant the world to me in such a way words really cannot describe and talks about all of my pain and my vulnerabilities. Not to mention my Brodie was on this piece and he too is no longer me. I can't even share the success with him or her, but I know and feel that in some way they are right here with me every time I pick up a pen or step in a studio.
What is your dream gig? Is there a gig that you really want that would be the ultimate show for you?
The ultimate gig would be a collaboration with Yo Gotti and T.I on an 808 Mafia beat performed at every award show there is starting with BET.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
Yes always! Working on my album that is scheduled to be released by October, more touring, shows, and videos. You name it I want in! The goal is to always #WIN and so the work will never end!
