How has life changed for you since becoming an artist?
ever since I caught a buzz people tell me my music is terrible and that i should be arrested for making " EVIL " songs and shit like that... it's kinda like I'm getting harassed more than praised ... alot of my music has messages that make you "THINK" and use your free will rather than being told what to do... and it seems like the people who know where I'm coming from and love my records are also being Harassed for knowing that my mixtape interludes are the TRUE reason that I am promoting music.
Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?
Yes... I do a lot of running around performing my Record "MASTER P" around the country to raise awareness and push the culture forward with these futurist audio impressions that I'm Pitchin...
Are there any artists/talent that you've worked with that we should be watching?
