Was there something (an experience) or someone in your life that was the catalyst for you to start writing music? Tell us about it:


I think I was 14 when I decided I wanted to be a music artist, so that was 4 years ago. I didn't know the first thing about recording, writing songs, or engineering audio, but I wanted to try it out. I don't remember if there was a clear catalyst for me, but I just remember looking at the artists I look up to and the way they live and thinking "I want to live like that."


Let's get this out of the way. What is the CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened to you in your music career?


To be honest, my answer to this question is "we'll see." I've only been promoting my music for a little while now, so I don't have too many crazy stories. However, when I was posting my 'badly-mixed' music randomly, testing the waters and stuff, someone with over 1 million followers on tik- tok hit me up and said he wanted to promote my music. I don't know where he is now but wherever he is, I hope he's doing well. Thank you to this man.


What has been the high point of your music path?


My high point is right now, and I'm not just saying that to sound confident. I've finally built enough confidence and organization to start promoting my music and taking my career seriously, and this only happened through 4 years of trial and error. This definitely isn't a peak, but we're only on an upward slope from here.


So, how do you approach songwriting or what is your creative process like?


I don't make my own beats; I feel like I should say that upfront. I could if I wanted to, and I plan to for some future songs, but typically I just don't enjoy the process of beat-making as much as I enjoy everything else; I'd rather pay for a beat. Once I find a beat that I like, a flow kind of just appears in my head like magic; that's how I know I got a good beat that matches me. Once I got the flow, there are a couple of routes I can take depending on the type of song: I could mumble until it formulates into lyrics, or I could think of something to talk about and flow from there. It's a weird and complicated process, but it's my process.

What do you see as the biggest challenge facing Indie Artists today? Or, if you could ask the music industry to change one thing, what would it be?


Really, just making it out here. There are a lot of people who want to be famous artists, especially now that it's so easy to make a professional-sounding song, let alone the fact that a song doesn't have to sound professional for it to blow up and gain traction. For people who put in a great amount of time and money in their craft, accepting the fact that a 13-year-old with an Iphone mic, bandlab, and 10 minutes can make it in the industry years before they could might be hard for them. Knowing this, and keeping your grind is what I see as the biggest challenge. What I would change? That's easy: label culture.


If you could share the stage with one other artist or band, who would it be and why? It's between Yung Manny and Trippie Redd. Yung Manny because I have quite a bit in common with him, yet I never had the chance to speak with him. Like me, he comes from Price George's County in Maryland, and he even went to my same elementary and high school for a bit; we even share family culture, since his family and half of mine are Nigerian. To have so much in common with someone yet never talk to them is just strange to me, but it happened that way. I want to share the stage with Trippie for obvious reasons: he's my favorite artist right now.


What are your rehearsals generally like? Or, how do you prepare for a live show? I've never had a live show for my music before; I'm still way too shy to do that, and I don't think I have enough music out for that. However, before starting to take my music career seriously, I did perform for a dance group I was a part of in high school. I'm not revealing who they are just yet, but we would practice pretty hard for our shows. With my music, I don't really see myself needing as much practice unless I want to do some special tricks but the idea would still be there probably.


Pick one song that was your greatest challenge to write. Tell us about it! It's not really a specific song, but the more old-school style hip-hop that I make is definitely much more challenging to write than a lot of the other stuff I make. Writing those songs takes a lot more of my time and energy since they require much more lyrics to fill the same amount of space as another song. I also have to intentionally be more clever with the way I play with my words. Regardless, I still see it as worth it in the end, since with those songs I enjoy hearing the rhyme schemes and what not.

What's coming up in the future?


I have a mixtape of chief keef type beats coming up later, but sooner, I have an album of pluggnb type beats coming. I wrote the album about a relationship I was a part of, but don't mistake it as an album full of love songs or a "my side of the story" type thing, its much deeper and complicated. Lastly, I plan to release a bunch of unreleased songs that I made for fun in a mass mixtape, which I may not make as much profit from, but I don't care as much about that as long as I can get people to listen.
