1.Hi ! How are you?

Hello, I’m doing great. Happy to be here.

2. Where are you from?

I’m from Southside Jamaica, Queens.

3. How did you get into music?

I got into music when I was in the 3rd grade. My grandfather was a musician and he began to teach me how to play the drums, guitar, saxophone and piano. Once I got to high school I began to write, and taught myself how to record and mix. Then during the pandemic, I taught myself how to produce and make beats. 

4. What is your greatest achievement as a musician?

My greatest achievement as a musician thus far would have to be assisting a recording session for G Herbo. He’s a dope artist and the session was nothing but good vibes. 

5. What are 3 words that describe your music?

Unexpected. Melodic. Progression. I like to make beats for all genres. Some days I’ll be working on RnB, then I’ll go to Drill, then out of nowhere I’ll make a pop song. Other days I’ll take bands like Nirvana and Coldplay and sample it to make a hard trap or drill song. Unexpected, you never know what you’re going to get. My music also tends to be very melodic most times. I like to focus on trying to have intricate melodies for most of my beats. Lastly progression; because every beat is always better than the last. I’m always striving to get better, and be better than my last work. 

6. What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

I think the biggest take away from listening to my music is energy. I have been making a lot of high energy tracks lately, as well as collabing with high energy artists. 

7. Who inspires you the most musically?

Musically, Jay-z inspires me the most. I think it’s so dope that a boy from out of Marcy Projects, who had nothing, can dedicate his life to his craft and become the best to ever do it; go from poverty, to a billionaire. Not only his skills in music but business wise as well. Not to mention all the work he does behind the scenes to keep pushing the culture forward. He inspires me to keep going.

8. Who is one artist you wish you could work with?

I would love to either work with Doja Cat or Ariana Grande. I think the both of them make such dope music, and I would love to step outside of rap and make a giant mainstream pop record. Honorable mention to Uncle Murda as well. One of my personal favorite rappers.

9. Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is it coming out? What is it

about?

I have a lot of new music coming out with a lot of dope artists. Upcoming drill rapper Buggout B will be using one of my beats for her On The Radar Freestyle. I also have songs in the works with YKG Hotboy, Shani Boni, and more.

10. Anything else you want the audience to know about you?

I want the audience to know that this is just the beginning. I’m just getting started. Plan on seeing my face and hearing about me a lot more. I have a lot of dope music instore.
