“I fit my music into a” trap – pop ” genre . Hardcore Rap/Trap isn’t me. I make that get up and dance music. Melodies are my thing. My sound is a part of my DNA . I’m a different type of creative. I play instruments so I’m very versatile. I like showing my supporters where I started, I’m not ashamed to show my faults. We all got to start somewhere. As long as you so progress your mistakes become lessons.”

“ I do feel it’s important for artists to collaborate on each other’s projects because different artist carry different messages, styles and slangs. Even with producers/beat makers, Collaborations are everything. Ask “ Dr Dre “ or “ missy Elliot ” You can reach fans across other platforms. My team has a big part in selecting my beats. ‘’ Fast Life Beats ‘’ & “ OVCZ “ are my main producers. They know my sound and consistently delivers with the heat.”
