Was music your first passion? or was the writing for the music first
Music actually wasn’t my first passion. I actually used to love electronics and video games as a passion. I used to play Zelda all the time on Nintendo 64. But as most hobbies we all want the next big thing. I used to write more rock/ acoustic music style. I’m a heavy slipknot fan.
Who or what really influences your style?
Eminem and 50 cent used to be my inspiration but as time goes by I grew more accustomed to Hopsin, Immortal technique, and Drake. I liked their wordplay.
Do you use beats or make your own?
I actually use beats and with free time I’ll make my own. I’m better with making techno/ rave beats. I use soundclick.com for beats and instrumentals.
Do you enjoy working with collaborators, or prefer doing your own thing?
I do more collaboration with other artists than my own. Its a good way to get your name out there when other artists allow you to feature in there songs. I actually finished a Mixtape with my boy Dracula. I produce for him.
How do you promote yourself?
What made you branch of into rap rather than pop, or hardcore lyrical work?
I found out that I was good with rhyming and timing. I love messing around with syllables and switching between stanzas. A lot of people like my lines but I’d rather the listener say so I’m not much of a boaster.
