Can we expect any new music heading into the third and fourth quarter?

In the process of release, a couple of projects one being back to the future mixtape hosted by Fleet DJ’s “Klassic” that will bring that New Los Angeles sound in. We’re gonna create a new wave incorporating some of the sounds from Retro into Back to the Future as we continue to create New Good sounding music.


Are there any other artists that you would like to work with at this time?

I am willing to work with any artist that is serious about their craft and following up with the people they work with on a project. Not just dropping something and then just moves on after it is released.

Each musician has something that they are passionate about outside of music whether it is fashion, cars, community activism. What are some other things that you are passionate about besides music?

Music is my only Passion. Everything else is secondary if that. My music is my a, b, and C plan. I’m already making money so as long as I save and invest, I’ll be good.

Where do you want your career to be in 2 years?

The sky is the limit. If I put a boundary on where I’ll be in 2 years, then I’ll be comfortable with that accomplishment. So let’s see how far I can Go Up!

What are some other things that we look forward to coming out of your camp?

FOREiN as a team we have a lot of things in the works such as production, film, etc. We’re just getting started.

Who are some of the mentors you looked up to as artists?

Kenny McCloud who is a legendary producer and engineer out here in Los Angeles and he was the one that introduced me to Kokane. He made sure that my sound was where it should be. Other than that, the only other person with influence in the game who has looked out for me is Kokane. Kokane helped me to the next level as far as, pushing me and literally showing me exactly what needs to be done to make it.
