Get the lowdown on #musicmoney featured artist @Sire1kofficial bringing one of the most powerful stories to the game we have heard in YEARS.
Where are you from?
I'm from Phoenix Arizona, I lived out my early days in tuc town (Tucson) always fuckin around out there for no reason with my cousin Jordan an some friends from school. Good times.
At age 9 my mom's was murdered so I had to go out to Phoenix with my grama cause she the only one who was willing to take care of me.
Been out here since, gotta job at age 15 started hustling, dropped outta school and left my gramas house at age 16
I ended up all over the place, I was constantly moving to several parts of the valley so unstable so messed up in my head from my past, I manned up real quick got my shit together and went ghost on life started traveling just freelancing it, made it to vegas, Cali, and places I didn't even know but just didn't care. I was so fixed on freeing my self from the bullshit and stresses of life, i taught myself to be ignorant toward em, taught myself how to read ppl, I took a journey and experienced life and everything it had to throw and give. Not everything but I've experienced alot, all that experience ended up taking me back to Arizona where a year after all that, I found my passion.... Music.
Describe your sound?
My sound is unique, it's different from the same old rap n trap tracks being put out. I speak from my heart and my mind, things I have going on, things I struggle to control. I keep it real. I'm also a self made producer,
So your also getting my personal beat expression with my personal lyricism so it's all me in these tracks.
Tell us about your latest track
Grey, man, it was a grey day... I made a beat the day before for my cousin, I was chillin on my couch in silence just thinkin negative about everything going on. Not sure why but I ended up catchin the sound of the beat I made the day before i just start going off on savage shit, so I pull out my notepad play the beat then I was vibin, I ended up writin a 40 bar verse in like 7 minutes, I was really in the zone, so I set up the mic that moment enclosed everything and started recording just like that. Came out dope as fuck, the beat was really plain tho, I'm talkin just a kick n hats n a few 808s with the synth, I just couldn't let it out dry. I fucked with that track quite a bit before i put it out. Sent it over to my homie KG, he hit me back with a few suggestions an said itll be a fire ass track. Worked on it for a day, mixed it down mastered it etc etc and grey is grey, turned out to be one of my personal favorites and always will be. I ended up leaking it early rather then waiting for my "GREY" album to drop (My first album that's in the works!) It was just to fire.
Who inspires you?
$UICIDEBOY$ have always been someone/something that inspired me, there music had me so hyped the drum selection, the tracks they sampled blew my fucking mind! I was listening to them before there videos were hitting 1,000 plays. The lyricism from $lick and Ruby was just fitting so perfectly with what they were doing. I completely stopped listening to every artist and still to this day don't listen to much else but them, it's almost an addiction, when I felt that. I knew I needed to find that "addicting" sound so that's exactly what I'm trying to accomplish, now a days tho I really inspire my self, it shocks me I came this far in under a year, I feel naturally talented.
Where do you see your career in 5 years?
I see myself doing worldwide tours. I see myself developing a successful brand, driving myself to the top. Opening a chain of recording studios to make more opportunity available to those who need it. I see myself being known for great things.

Tell us something everybody needs to know.
I quit my job the day I knew I wanted to be a rapper, I always knew that's what i wanted to be just never took action for whatever reason, but when I did... The final result was just me bangin out tracks like I was Poppin Adderall all day. I felt good, I felt like I was where I wanna be, just over all feeling on top. I was constantly writing, constantly making beats, trynna per-fect my talent. I'm now to the stage where I can make a beat before i even listen to a sound in around 5-10 minutes. I never sell my beats because I just have so many ideas sprouting once I listen to my finished product. I can never bring myself to do it. I enjoy rapping to my own sound way to much. I've been doing this jobless everyday for a little over a year now, i won't go back to work because I see my vision in front of my face, I believe in myself 100%! This is something I need to accomplish for peace of mind. I'm coming for the top, I see my future clear, I couldn't stop even if I tried.
Stay tuned for my "GREY" album!
