Most people don’t know I: Have a jumper. They don’t believe me, I challenge any rapper to a game of horse.
My style’s been compared to: People always compare me to other rappers with beards. Honestly, nobody’s compared my actual sound to anybody else’s. Which I think is dope.
My standout records and/or moments to date have been: “Potential Fans” is a standout record. Standout moment, I was at a studio in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) and RZA walked in and randomly karate chopped me. That really happened.
My goal in Hip-Hop is: To make the songs I want to make. Hopefully I’ll inspire people to do what they want with their lives instead of being depressed robots in the workforce.
I’m gonna be the next: Just going to be me.
