What inspired you to pursue a career in music, and when did you first realize you wanted to be a musician?
The people around me growing up in school inspired me to rap. They made it sound and look like the greatest thing ever. I realized I wanted to be a musician after realizing my longevity with music. It's always played a major part in my life and I've always played an instrument as long as I can remember.
What are some of the biggest challenges you've faced as an emerging artist, and how have you overcome them?
Keeping inspiration & blocking out people who don't have the same faith or passion about what I'm doing. I've overcome the inspiration by continuing to work knowing I'll eventually fall back to where I need to be musically. I overcome the doubters by having enough faith/belief for myself to know I'm an amazing artist that a be gargantuan some day.
Who are some of your biggest musical influences, and how have they shaped your sound and style?
As far as established artist my heavy early influences were Quavo, Thug, savage,future, cole & drake. When I was still establishing my sound (2016-2017) I studied their music heavily.
How do you approach the songwriting process, and where do you draw inspiration from for your lyrics and melodies?
I actually don't write my Music anymore. I want to get back into it but I don't have the patience. My inspiration for tracks comes from whatever I was listening to that week or how I'm feeling or something going on in the room. There's a lot that plays into it not 1 defining factor.
What can listeners expect from your upcoming album or project, and how does it differ from your previous work?
People can expect a new Music video for a song off my new album "Sap Trap Trab 3" I dropped Valentine's Day. It'll differ from all the other videos I've shot so far and I don't want to give away too much about it.
How has your background or life experiences influenced your music and artistic vision?
I feel like I'm a product of my environment. My background and lifestyle definitely play into my music, but majority of the time I'm just tryna say something that sounds cool fr.
Can you talk about a particularly memorable or inspiring performance you've had, and what made it special?
I performed at this venue right by The Masquerade in Atlanta and it meant a lot to me because I had to actually sell tickets for this show. It showed the real supporters honestly and a lot of people close to me got to come see me do what I do best.
What do you hope listeners take away from your music, and what message do you want to convey through your art?
I hope people don't over think my Music. I want people to listen to it and just have a good time listening. I have different vibes honestly so if you want sum fast, slow, sad, angry, weird, etc. I can do that for you. I want to convey happiness and shit popping in my music. I want whoever listening to feel like they can be themselves & still be dat guy or girl fr.
How has the music industry changed since you first started, and how have you adapted to those changes as an artist?
Only thing I can say that I see is there's a lot more resources. They're making it easier for artist that aren't established to still be able to look the part and not just like somebody who hasn't made it yet.
What advice would you give to other emerging artists who are just starting out in the industry?
Stay consistent. Genuinely listen to everybodys feedback about your music, but be able to separate the good advice from the hate. Everybody isn't gonna show love at first, but once they see you consistent they'll start to respect you. Make a distrokid. It's not about what you say it's about how you say it.
