1) Do you remember the moment you wanted to be a hip-hop artist?

The moment I remember I wanted to be a hip hop artist was when I was 15 years old. I was watching Wayne on Bet 106&Park.  I didn’t take it serious yet but I knew I could do it.

2) What was it like creating your latest project?

Creating Still Coming was a tad bit to much fun. I was at the crib in my room or living room looking up beats or got some beats sent to me. Shout out Triple G Ty. Writing down my lyrics and going over all my material at one time.

3) What are you trying to achieve with the project?

The only thing I’m trying to achieve is getting as many people to hear it as possible. It’s free! Soon as you hear it. It’s no way, no way possible you can’t come away wit a favorite.

It’s very strong and inspiring.

6) As an independent hip-hop artist grinding it out, what sort of promotion and marketing are you doing to stand out from the rest?

8) How do you feel about hip-hop today?

Hip hop is hip hop. It has came a long way but I love the direction that it’s headed in.
