I grew up listening to: “A bit of everyone; I really can’t locate it. It depends on what time of my life I was going through, the different modes and the shit. I would play different people. I remember listening to it. Jay Z, Nas and shit and I got caught. Found fucking Andre 3000, Love below CD too. So it depends on how I was feeling at the time. “
My style has been compared to: “I think they compare me to a bit of everyone. I changed my style.”
I will explode because: “I really do not know. I’m just trying to stay positive, trying to keep working on things. I feel you stay positive, you stay to work. It’s like, I can move, you know what I’m saying? Protect your brand, shit like that. If you are doing these things then you should be honest, honestly. “
What’s your sleepiest song and why ?: “I have so many. I have 2 million songs that I felt like they were sleeping on. But people are just windy, so I’m not really mad at that. I thought people weren’t fucking with me, but it felt like people just didn’t know. “
My records to date have been: “So far,“ Paperwork Party ”,“ Number One Fan ”. And I just released something with Moneybagg Yo [‘If You Know You Know’], it’s major … Because it’s like, coming out of the year he’s had, he does what he does, so that I’m even just starring on a track with him that’s major. I don’t care what nobody says like that to me. I did this shit when I had COVID, like they really diagnosed me with COVID and I did this shit. So I couldn’t leave the house. “
My highlights so far have been: “I have a few cats that make music, in the same spirit as me, which is starting to be noticed and appreciated. So when they have their shine and their shit, I always permeated those moments, because I remember starting the stages with them and making them move and doing shit … So these are the best times to me to see them do big shit and to know that I helped them towards the shit they did. “
Most people don’t know: “I’m really cheap. From my music, they probably think I’m an addict. I go wild, but I relax for real.
I’ll be next: “Biggest thing in my town.”
