Sales Pitch: "I'm an artist without any boundaries on the type of music I create. Whether it's crunk, street, commercial, or underground, I do it all. I have a strong work ethic and I like to experiment with styles. I have this hunger on improving and making myself a better artist even though I've been grinding for 11 years. I never feel like I'm at my pinnacle skill-wise as an artist. I always strive to do better, and make cool music. With that said, listen to the music and appreciate it for what it is. Play this shit for your chirren, craig n' nem, ya baby mamma (it'll get you the drawsss doggg---- Tommy from Martin). Peace.. Love and Respect."
