Exclusive Interview Below:
What first got you into music?
I got into a fight at a high school football game one night, came home swoll and wrote a diss track haha.... and ever since then I have been writing down my thoughts and feelings in the form of music. Who inspired you to make music? I'm from a different era, I grew up listening to 90s - early 2000s hip hop, some artist inspirations are Joe Budden, Lox, Ruff Ryders, Pac, Biggie, etc. But my 2 biggest inspirations are corporate America, and my haters..... I don’t want to slave to get another man rich and my haters wanna see me fail, f**k em, so that’s what is fueling me at the moment.. I’m tryin to build something of my own.
How would you describe the music that you typically create? Raw.... straight to the point. My music is always a quality production , filled with a bunch of mixed emotions, depends how I’m feeling that day.
What is your creative process like? Simple, find a hard beat that matches how I’m feeling, some loud, and just get to it.... I’m usually by myself in the process, and I don’t like to force it in one sitting. I find that you capture different emotions and perspectives when you come back to it.
Who would you most like to collaborate with? I need a track with Styles P before my times up haha, so that’s going to be a goal for me. If Joe Budden ever comes out of retirement, I’m gonna need one of those as well, just sayin.
If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
Well, first I’d like to say f**k you Rona, it’s killing live performances as we know it. Kinda scary . But probably for Meek Mill, or Russ, both of them would be a great experience. What is one message you would give to your fans? I got maaad love for my people. Anybody that rocks with me, I truly appreciate the support. Do what you want to do, be who you want to be, life’s too short.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business? It’s the reason I am able to release my music without a label or a major endorsement, so props to the internet for that. It also gives you the opportunity to reach out to people and resources that you wouldn’t normally have access to. But I also think it gives frauds a platform to do shady business on, and there is a lot of that going on in the music business. If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be? Being that most people stream music these days , I think artists are getting extremely under paid by all of these major streaming platforms. Doesn’t make sense to me. What’s next for you? I’m gonna continue to release singles for the time being , so keep your eyes and ears open, and I’m workin on some Deezy Cascone Merch coming soon. Also hopefully some live performances in the near future. “Killa Killa” out now!
