Get the track. Write the hook. Then the verse. Then record. Same routine
4) Can you run me through the making of your latest project?How the idea came about and what the studio vibes were like?
Last project Party Control. Was released about a week ago. Its an Ep. Showingn my fun side. All my last mixtapes were more serious and industry beats. This EP is all original songs. And I recently released the single “HIP HOP” VIDEO OUT NOW.
THE Song hip hop is just about guys judgments of the “party girl”. but listening to the hook, the girl denies what the guys make think of her. And says In all of your judgment about me and my party life.. I love Hip Hop.

Hip hop today changes everyday. I think it’s more leaning to just having a hot track rather than even focusing on the lyrics
8) What music are you listening to these days?
I love hot 97. So a little bit of everbody. Anyone in hip-hop really blowing your mind? Nope. I blow my own mind 🙂
