What age where you when you decided to become an artist?

When I was 6 years old. I built a fortress out of the extra pieces of a $6 venetian blind. It was my temple. Unfortunately, it was destroyed in a great grounding. I've always been creative.

Name a few of your biggest influences in hip hop?

I'll never forget the first time I heard the Doggfather through a stolen car stereo. A lot of my inspiration comes through friendly competition with my fellow DEAFWISH family members like Employee & Chivas & Kream. I've always been a big Ludacris fan - as a whyte guy you have to be ;) - and I'm always amazed at the ways people come at this game.

What are some of the things you’re working on right now?

I have 3 more videos in the works and mixtape called L!V3S in the works. Most or all the beats will be done by DJ Knife (@knife4lyfe), he's a long time collaborator with major talent. People need to quit sleepin' on him.

What advise can you give other upcoming artists?

Don't expect anyone to do shi~ for you if you're not nice. Make your own money and spend it as wisely as possible. It's a marathon, not a race. Hang in there kitty. Think outside the box. Cloud Synergy for the 2.0 or something...

How has life changed for you since becoming an artist?

I have less time to monitor my online income, but more time to thanks yeesus that the money comes so easily. Generally, I'm a lot calmer.

Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?

Many times. As a DJ, an emcee and a musician. I've been cheered, booed and shut down for being too awesome. You just never know what you're going to get and that's the magic of live music. I think the positive reviews are outweighing the negative these days.

Are there any artists/talent that you’ve worked with that we should be watching?

As I mentioned, C'n'K (@chivasAndKream), DJ Knife (@knife4lyfe) and Employee (@sheak47). I got a side project called Life Advice that's Husker Du level punk. Lil Wayne lowered the bar on rappers playin' guitar so I figured why not. There's tons of great rappers and musicians I hope to work with, we'll just see what happens.
