Hometown: Mount Vernon, New York
I grew up listening to: Sam Cooke, Average White Band, Jay-Z, Prince, Pharrell & many others. I'm heavily influenced by the 70's funk and the 90's hip-hop. I dig music period so I could call off a few acts people don't know.
Most people don't know I: Own a clothing line called Oil Based Fashion that I launched in 2007. I'm also a muralist with Mural Mural on the Wall which is an art company I own.
My standout records and moments to date have been: Performing at Peach Drop in Atlanta and performing at Luminocity Atlanta with Big Boi. My standout record is "It's Getting Harder To Cheat."
My goal in Hip-Hop is: To definitely be considered as one of the greats, in front & behind the music. I can create melodies with 4 part harmony by myself or craft a classic for someone else. It doesn't matter, I just want to be in the music. Also my goal is to not just do hip hop. I believe music is something that should be explored. Maintain the art and add ratchetness if the girls want some.
I'm gonna be the next: "Big thing," whatever that means. I'll continue to work hard and deliver the best music possible. I’m aiming for the Freshman cover next year so I have work to do. I'm ready to experience the other plateaus of my career. Other than that, I'll continue to be me.
