Q: We Love your new record DOOMSDAY with Lodato, how did you guys get together for this collaboration?
ANs: he stalked me for years lol, just kidding I admire him and his hard work ethic he is talented but very humble I have always wanted to work with him and I enjoy working with him his energy the team around him he is blessed and has great people around him which is a true reflection of him and what a great human being and talented artist he truly is. We wanted to make a song that was different we wanted to talk about all the real shit in life that people struggle and go through and to remind everyone that even though he gets real difficult in life there’s light at the end of the tunnel and it is OK to be hanging off the cliff he’s OK to have dark thoughts OK to have insecurities and struggle and feel like a failure or a loser just know that we all have those thoughts and feelings even the most successful people out there take for example Avicii who just recently passed on the outside we will thought well I wish I had his life.. but people need to let everyone know when they are suffering it is OK and nothing to feel ashamed off we have all been there and I think we wanted to make a record that lets people feel OK to go through those periods to not feel ashamed about not being able to cope sometimes in life and to reach out to friends and love ones or even on social media and you will find many people will connect with you and reach out back to you this way you create a great community for yourself
