Where are you from?
I was born in Tucson, Az but honestly I've moved around all my life from being in a military family and then from making music and miscellaneous reasons as well. Right now I live in El Paso,Tx actually. Shoutout 520, 915, and 254!
Describe your sound:
I've always called it Scat Rap ,kinda like scat jazz, plus I be sh**ting on these rappers in the booth. My biggest influences have been Nas, Zro, and Tyler the Creator, which sometimes shows in my music but in a different way than you would expect. For sure though nobody can say my music lacks originality though so for that it's hard to explain exactly. You just have to hear it. I will say forsure though most of my stuff is pretty in your face and assumedly offensive, though that would be the opinion of someone who only heard those types of songs from me.
Tell us about your new project:
My latest project is my first actual fully fledged album where i can say I have taken all the necessary steps to ensure consistency and cohesiveness as well as it's the first album I can actually profit from it and perform legally, and that's what it's about right? It's called "Prologue Again: Syzygy" for those who don't know what Syzygy means heres Merriam Webster's definition. "the nearly straight-line configuration of three celestial bodies such as the sun, moon, and earth during a solar or lunar eclipse."
Who inspires you?
I’d say really it's life that inspires me and the people I meet daily and all the trials failures and successes equally as well as my fans. Im not very eager to point out one person as a sole influence.
It started out as just freestyling really, I had a homie who wouldn't allow you to walk in his house basically unless you participated in the music and I became really good at freestyling. And then another really good friend of mine basically gave me the desire to make a career out of it because of the faith he had in my music. It truly laid the groundwork for alot of this, we forreal had all the trapspots bumping my stuff constant.
Where do you see your career in 5 years?
In 5 years I plan on having already been a giant in the industry for 3 years, you feel me? I'm going to build an empire forsure, I have the drive , passion and not even trying to sound arrogant or overconfident but the intelligence and skill to make it. In 5 years I don't want to be defined as a rapper anymore, I hope to be a major influence when it comes to all aspects regarding the music industry as well as other forms of art. I've always hated structure in that its monotonous typically and found art in general to be the spontaneity I crave, but I've always been really good at delegating in a structured environment. Basically this industry is something I was made for and I hope to be dominating in 5 years.
