What was your first interaction with music?
My first interaction with music was from the beginning of time. My mom always kept the blues, gospel and jazz playing in the house…but actually getting into music, I was fascinated with the neighborhood cyphers so one day I went home and wrote a 16 and came back the next day and rapped it and it was on ever since….I was amazed by the reaction and the freedom off it
What inspires you musically?
Everything inspires me. It can be triggered by a bird flying in the sky. Or a political argument. It even can be inspired from my pain..
