My style and/or skills have been compared to: I’ve been compare to Jay-Z a few times for my slick talking and story telling ability. I’d like to think that I’ve created my own style but being a student of the game that wouldn’t be completely true LOL.
I started rapping: I started when I was around nine or ten years old. When I was younger my step-pops would take me to the studio to sit in with him on his sessions. Being around it so much just made me eager to start making up my own rhymes.
My standout moments/records have been: My standout moment has to be when I dropped my 1st project “The Long Way Home.” There wasn’t hype around me or major co-sign or any special guest appearances. I told my story my way and received genuine love from blogs and peers telling me how dope the project was. I knew I was going in the right direction after the love I received. My standout song is probably “Break Up.” I wrote it because of a daydream I had. The video and the song made people start to pay attention to what I’m developing.
I’m gonna change the game by: I’ll change the game by staying true to the art and by having fun LOL. Artist forget to have fun and enjoy themselves. To obsessed with trying to look more important then they actually are.
I’d like to work with: I’d like to work with J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T., and Kendrick Lamar. All talented and soon to be the household names of the game.
My goal in hip-hop is: My goal in hip-hop is to be the best! Being from Brooklyn you can’t be anything less than perfect. Having great examples before me like Big Daddy Kane, Biggie Smalls & Jay-Z set the bar for BK artists. Its only right that I raise it even higher.
I’m going to be the next: Face Of New York
