4) What’s your process like for making music? Do you have a set routine or does it vary track by track?

Most of the time DJ send me beats and it might take me a Few days to actually write the song sometimes its less the that if I’m feeliin the beat I can knock out the track and then go to the studio later that week and keep it movin ya feel me
