Sounds super dope, can’t wait to check it out. I’d love to throw some beats for the upcoming projects. What is your goal in the music industry? What will it take for you to feel you’ve “made it”?
I just wanna leave a major lasting mark before I die and get out the struggle. I just love to entertain, that’s why I choose this style of music. I can out bars most these poets and pretty boys, I just know my target market so I appeal to them first.
I hear you there, that’s a great motivation for sure. You definitely seem to be on your way somewhere great. What is your most favorite track you’ve released?
My favorite tracks are Miney Moe and Just Wanna Blow, which both have vidz.
