Q: What made you want to start making music and who are some of your biggest influences when it comes to music?
A: “I always liked music at a young age. I wanted keyboards and microphones, I was never in to Power Rangers like the other kids my age. I loved music since birth! My biggest influence I think would be e40, he stayed on top of his game, independent, and still can change with the times. He is the most underrated, but far as business of music Jay-Z, Master p, and of course J Prince.”
