1) Talk to me about the making of your latest project. What was the inspiration behind it?

My last project was “the Bakery” hosted by DJ Shon: shoutout DJ Shon. Currently finishing up Nat Geo, the tape. Which drops 6/29. What inspired me was my city and trying to really put my sound out and project my art.

2) With the music industry tanking and record sales falling, how do you envision yourself earning a living as an independent hip-hop artist?

As an Indie artist, I just want to self promote any and every project I’m doing. As well as, bring out some merch. Such as, t-shirts, hoodies and stickers, to start. So that my fans know that there’s always something in the works.

3) From a business point of view, which artists in the game do you think are really pushing the boundaries and changing it up?

I would most definitely sell Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne, and Curren$y.

4) What business lessons have you learnt from the music industry so far?

One lesson that I’ve learned working independently is making sure all your bases are covered so your art isn’t stolen.

5) What do you love about hip-hop music?

I love how hip-hop is versatile, so there’s always room to create.

6) What still surprises you about hip-hop?

Hip-hop surprises me all the time, still the vibe is endless.

7) If you had the power to change one thing about the hip-hop industry to help independent artists – what would it be?

If there’s was one thing I would change about the hip-hop game to help indie artist; just never give up. Keep grindin’, hustlin’. No sleep = goals reached.

8) Who do you think are top 3 rappers doing it at the moment?

Wiz, Curren$y, Lil Wayne

9) So what are your plans for the future?

My plans for the future is to keep working. I’m on my new project, Nat Geo. which comes 6/29. I can’t get enough so keep an eye and ear open for me
