Hometown: Harrisburg, Pa
Location: Philadelphia, Pa
Describe your sound as if we were deaf?
My music is a tag team wrestling match between J.Dilla x Nas versus Dr. Dre x Ghostface Killah.
What producers, songwriters and/or artists do you see as your primary inspirations?
Nas, Kanye West, Jay-Z, J.Dilla.
Do you have a favorite musical project that you’ve worked on?
I love all of my music but my favorite at this moment is the one I’m currently working on.
What was the main factor for launching your career when you did?
I “launched” my career when I was 12 years old because I felt like that’s what I was put here to do.
Who are some people you would like to work with?
I would love to work with and study under Kanye West, even Jay-Z, Nas, Andre 3000, Hi-Tek, DJ Quick, Dr. Dre, Black Milk.. obviously my list is incredible. Up and coming artists like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Big K.R.I.T. are definitely on that list, as well as 2,583 other artists. I can’t wait to get in regular contact with some of these artists because I know I’m going to make a lot of good music.
How is the internet changing your craft?
I definitely owe alot to the internet. All my music is available for free download on my personal blog and that wouldn’t be possible without the internet. I’d have to keep hard copies of all music on me all the time!
Do you feel like what you are doing is important?
Definitely. I’m speaking for a group of people who have yet to be spoken for. I’m part of a new generation of artists from my city that are destined to make noise.
Lastly, could you talk about any long-term goals or talents you have in mind?
I want to win Grammys and make movies. In the future, after I study different instruments like the piano and drums, I want to produce an album (with other selected producers) and leave the vocals to other artists. I will probably song write for the project but you won’t hear me. I also have big plans for my city as far different entertainment and educational outlets for everybody living there.
