RESPECT.: From the hit single “Pull Up” to now, what is one thing that keeps you motivated?
It’s always been the love for the music. The driving force that has pushed me to simply have the passion. There’s nothing I know better from it.
RESPECT.: What are some attributes from your previous project to this one?
All of my projects have sounding elements. It’s always some good raps and melodies haha. I try to keep things fresh and new, but I like to give a little bit of soul.
RESPECT.: The visual for your hit single “Elevate” is dope. One of the scenes reminds me of ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’’ with the Lexus, haha. What does it mean in terms to your single “Elevate?”
You know, that record is really all about progression and me taking a look at myself thus far. By thinking on what’s next by “elevating” it to the next level.
RESPECT.: I can definitely say that the project is fire from top to bottom, what can you say is your most challenging core thus far while making the project?
Thank you! The project has been getting a huge amount of love. I’m proud and thankful for that. I would say the most challenging part is coming up with ways to get the music to more people! I got some tricks up my sleeve for 2019; so we’ll see what happens.
RESPECT.: I can hear some samples from this project, for example, “Playing For Keeps.” What is your most inspiration in music? Which era would you want to be in?
Yeah! I always incorporate samples in my music. I just love the soul sounds to have mix with a little Motown sound in which it turned out great. I would love to be in the ‘90s because there is nothing like it.
RESPECT.: Describe to us what ‘Worth The Wait’ means to you? Your dreams?
It is about finding patience. It is a hard thing to do. Sometimes we want things so badly and on our own time, but rarely does that happen. ‘Worth The Wait’ is about being willing to sacrifice, persistent and have faith that your day will come.
RESPECT.: What is your favorite combination with food and beverage? Henny and Chicken wingz? Lol.
Hahaha, that’s a great combination! Can’t forget the fries!
RESPECT.: What can you say is your most favorite record of the project that you can let a fan, who hasn’t heard from you, to listen to? Why?
I would probably go with “Elevate.” It has a good mixture of all the things I am. From rap to singing and even the message has a good blend. It leaves the door open for me to do more singing and rap based records.
RESPECT.: Define RESPECT.
Respect is like a trophy. You only get it when you deserve it. It is something we all desperately desire.
RESPECT.: What is next for you? A tour coming soon?
Most definitely! I have something in the works that is tour related. I have a lot more music and videos that are on the way!
