Choose one adjective to describe your music style?


Do you write your own songs? If so, what are your songs about and where do you draw your inspiration?

Yeah, I write all of my material. My music covers (my) everyday life, and the different aspects of it. The different moods I go through, that's where I draw my inspirations from. However I'm feeling, random thoughts, or whatever.

What project are you currently promoting and is it available for purchase?

Right now I'm working on my "No Condom?!" album and its "Cum'm Soon!"

What is your message behind the "no condom" movement?

When you think "no condom" you think raw, nasty, and that's exactly how I'm cum'n! I ain't holding nothing back, I'm exposing you to every bit of sickness I got.

Are you looking for an independent label deal or a major label deal?

That depends on which is more beneficiary. I probably would lean towards an independent deal because it's probably more "creative freedom" hence "No Condom?!"

How would you define the word "success"?

Given the definition, I'd define it as achieving one's goals.

What is your biggest career embarrassment?

So far I haven't had any big embarrassments so let's hope it stays that way.

Most memorable moment in creating one of your records?

Most memorable moment had to be when I did ecstasy for the first time and was recording a track with my cousin. I felt everything I said was golden, so much creative juices! The next day or two when I heard the song I was like, "Let me do some revisions." (lol!) No I don't do ex anymore.

who has been the most influential person in your music career?

My brother had to be my biggest influence by far. He sort of has been fine tuning my ear for good beats, and music, for years now (laughs).

Who is your celeb look-alike?

I don't think I have a celeb look-a-like. I get mistaken for a model, a lot though.

what was your first job?

My first job was at a local grocery store. I was the "bagboy".

What is your worst Fear?

My biggest fear is missing my "time", and being stuck with the regrets of what could've been.

What is your guilty pleasure?


What artists would you love to work with?

Kid Cudi, Devin the Dude, Tyler the Creator, to name a few.

Any advice or lessons learned in the music industry that you would like to share with other indie artists?

Be careful of the advice you take, there's good, and bad so just do your research, and use your best judgment.

What is the number one thing you hope people get out of your music?

Hope, anything is possible. I been there, nothing is impossible because "I'm Possible." You can do anything you want to.
