The Come Up: Dyme-A-Duzin


On his craft:

I am an artist, first and foremost. At the end of the day that’s what I love to do, create. I always have to create, and it’s fun to create. So I use my life experiences, and I don’t ever look at it as a job. I just do what I do and create what I create: music that I’m satisfied with or that I try to impress myself with, and then give it the people to feel and relate to hopefully.

I look at myself in a certain way. There are different perspectives of me and there are different sides. More real and more honest sides to everybody. In trying to portray that in this album.

The suit is something I aspired to do; to be like that Frank [Sinatra] or to be like that Ray Charles. [Laughs] It’s something that I believe in and it shows as the front cover. It shows as, “This is something that I want you to see because this is my vision,” but then in the back is another vision and my eyes are closed, the paint is chipping. It’s another dimension.
