Q:When you decide it’s time to make a new record, is that more exciting or stressful?
Ans: I can say its more exciting. The stress doesn’t come until it’s time for a new project. Which means more material, concepts, vibes, & etc that me and my team have to decipher.
Q: How do you shut things out?
Ans: A pair of white, earplugs, & the stankonia album
Q: How easily do songs tend to come to you?
Ans : Lately songs have been coming to me pretty easy. Don’t get me wrong it can be difﬁcult to come up with a meaningful song. Lately it just been inspiration and real life situations that’s made my music easy to construct and cope with.
Q: For our readers who have never heard your music, explain your sound in 5 words?
Ans: My sound in 5 words can be soulful, jazzy, tranquil, funky, pop, just any vibe I’m feeling or selective sound I want to go with for a new project.
Q: You write all of your own music; where do you draw inspiration from when you write songs and what’s your favorite part about the proccess?
ANS: Yes I do write al of my music. Going off of my previous answer, I draw inspiration from all aspects of life, struggle, and music. There is no favorite part honestly. It’s just focus and making sure the ﬂow isn’t forgotten the next day and the content is making sense.
Q:Who are your inspirations?
Ans: My inspirations aren’t necessarily who, more so of what. I can ﬁnd inspiration from Outkast, Bone Thugs, Kendrick, etc. But I work on looking for inspiration through all aspects of life, music, and anything else I can ﬁnd. For example, if the rent is overdue, not only do I I have to rap about it, but use it for motivation purposes.
Q: If you could perform with anyone, in the future, who would it have to be?
Ans: Not if, I’m going to perform with Erykah Badu. I don’t want to perform with Outkast, I want to do a tribute for them. They too old to hang with me on stage.
Q: Do you have any events coming up or recording going on right now?
Ans: Seville Ep is releasing August 29th on audiomack. Please be on the lookout for that.
Q: Which famous musicians do you admire? Why?
Ans: Deﬁnitely can say Iman Omari. Make sure you give him a listen. Love his sound.
Q: Were you inﬂuenced by old records & tapes? Which ones?
Ans: I was inﬂuenced by several old records. Nas- Illmatic, any outkast project, UGK- underground kingz, Scarface- the world is yours, bone thugs n harmony, etc, I can go on all day.
