  • When did you realize you were going to make music professionally? I realized by the early to mid 2000's that I could pursue music professionally from playin wit it since the 90's.
  • What type of music do you listen to? I listen to of course rap(west coast, classic south, classic underground east coast)70's funk, jazz, and gospel music.
  • Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist? Artist like Curtis Mayfield are undervalued on the r&b side and as far as rap artist like Bun B, or Tray Dee are real hard street lyricist but definitely undervalued.

What I do other than music is constantly reading to build up my spirituality for myself and to be able to properly raise and teach my children. I also work to provide for my family but not at all passionate about my job.
  • Success to you is... Success to me is waking up doing what you love and giving the best way you can.
