At what age did you decide to become an artist?
At the age of seventeen I decided to become an artist. My brothers and myself always discussed on how we wanted to live this dream in the projects. I fell in love with Hip Hop at the age of seven, when I saw Tupac on TV performing “Hit Em Up”. I started taking this music serious at the age of twenty one.
Name a few of your biggest influences in hip hop?
Tupac, Biggie, Nas, Jay Z, Jadakiss.
What are some of the things you’re working on right now?
Right now I’m getting ready to release the #RegretTheDoubt mixtape. I am already writing all of my songs for the upcoming #Blessed mixtape that will be released around the summer of 2015. Also working on ideas of the upcoming videos with the brothers. We always working on this side. .
What advice can you give other upcoming artists?
Make sure you are having fun while doing this. Never let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do. If the love of Hip Hop is in your heart, then God put that love in your heart for a reason. Don’t label other artists that are also coming up in the game as competition. For that is a waste of time and will not benefit you in any way, shape, or form. Focus on God, yourself, and your gift.
How has life changed for you since becoming an artist?
Life hasn’t really changed much. Just the fan base has increased and more blessings keep coming my way.
Have you had the pleasure of performing yet?
I opened up for Papoose back in April 18th, in Providence, RI. Performed twice at the Sailfest in New London, CT. Performed at TheRidgeSeason release concert back in August 2nd. My brother Tallent and myself will be opening up for Chris Webby at the Lupo’s venue in Providence, RI this November 7th. Come out to support and have a good time!
Are there any artists/talent that you’ve worked with that we should be watching?
Most definitely. Check out my bro @YungViceCity and @HollyHoodVee on Twitter. Check out the whole Ridge movement. Definitely check out my brother Tallent from SoundSuiteMusic.
