What inspired you to pursue a career in music, and when did you first realize you wanted to be a musician?
I remember when I was younger I used to write poetry and it gradually turned in to music I used to make songs that were all verse no chorus and thought I would blow up off that alone but around that time I used to watch my cousin and his friends make music and I used to write verses to his songs and one day in the fifth grade I made a song for a girl named Taylor Jamison and it was so bad my family roasted me and I ripped it up and threw it away only to continue writing other songs after and I haven’t stopped since
