WHAT HAS THE HARDEST OBSTACLE AS AN INDEPENDENT RECORDING ARTIST BEEN?
Probably promotion and marketing it hard to get good footing in this industry.
WHAT PLATFORM ARE YOU USING TO DISTRIBUTE YOUR MUSIC AND WHY?
I use tunecore. I have been using it for years and years and it is a great way to get your music on the market especially when everyone has a streaming subscription these days.
HOW MANY ARTISTS HAVE YOU COLLABORATED WITH LOCALLY?
So many! I recently did a record with Capotol Records recording artist August Bleu that’s about to drop. Record is crazy so be on the look out.
HOW SERIOUS ARE YOU ABOUT MAKING A LIVING FROM MUSIC? ARE YOU A STUDENT OF THE GAME?
I’m very serious about my brand overall.
WHAT IS LACKING IN HIP HOP MUSIC THAT YOU THINK YOU CAN CHANGE?
I think originally, lyricism and the overall craft in itself is missing. People are making songs to sell instead of making songs that sell.

IF YOU COULD COLLABORATE WITH ANY SINGER MALE OR FEMALE FOR A JOINT ALBUM WHO WOULD IT BE?

DO YOU THINK THE STREAMING ERA IS HURTING OR BENEFITING ARTISTS THESE DAYS?
I think with anything you have to take it and make it work. Streaming is hurting album sales but you gotta take that and sell merchandise, book shows, tour, so it’s all about how you look at it.
