Q: How Would You Describe Your Sound?

A: “My sound would be like an updated New York Sound. Everyone wants to know what New York sounds like today, it’s just an update cus’ back in the day it wasn’t more of a melodic thing and I’m bringing a melodic lyrical setting to this music.”

Q: What Inspired Your Latest Album?

A: “My new album was inspired by my first mixtape drop and this album right here. The time period between is basically where this album comes from. My first mixtape called artist was the best thing I made. It’s hard really competing with that but now the tables turned. Instead of the puppet strings controlling me, I’m now controlling the puppets. It’s more to it that I’ll reveal too in the future.”

Q: What Are Your Thoughts On This Generation And Social Media?

A: “Today really social media is taking over and you really just gotta maintain without letting that ruin your whole life. That’s what comes with being a celebrity these days.”

Q: What Words Of Advice Can You Give The Youth?

A: “If you coming up and you got something you really wanna do but other people around you don’t wanna – don’t worry about what they gonna say cus’ if so, they not the right people around you. They should be motivating you and telling you what’s best for you. If you really wanna do that sh*t go do that sh*t.”
