Most people don’t know I: Have been skateboarding for 11 years. It’s a big part of my life. Besides rapping, I also have a gig at a skate shop in SoHo.

My standout records and moments to date have been: My First Single, “On Da Map” getting exposure. Becoming an AM Skateboarder for Zoo York. Opening for Juicy J last year, Chief Keef, Capital Steez (RIP) and Project Pat.
My goal in Hip-Hop is: To stay true. I skate, I rap. Just be authentic with what I do so cats around the world who share similar interests have someone or something to relate to, and I know ya’ll are out there.
