What first drew you into music and rap/hip-hop in particular?
The people around me use to hear me freestyle for fun and suggested I make music but I never really took what they said serious, it wasn’t until a close friend of mine told me to start writing music that I started really seeing the hidden talent I actually had. I’ve always been a good writer. English was my number one subject in school so writing music and telling real life stories came very natural to me; I actually have my parents to thank for the ability to write because when I was younger my punishments were to write essays on random things.
Your track “Need my” is very modern and the lyrics are amazing! How did you achieve such a great signature sound in such a short time? Also, what is your creative process like?
Thank you! Thank you! that is much appreciated I have only been making music for half a year so thank you for that. I’ve always been good at writing and if the beat has the right theme then I can build a very good body of work. My signature sound comes from me and my engineer spending countless hours in the studio making hundreds of songs to figure out what sound sticks and what sound is like me. My creative process… it’s interesting you ask that, my creative process stems from how much I love the beat or if the beat drags out a vibe or emotion within me, sometimes my creative process is dependent on how the song I create would sound if performed it at a concert.
You have recently released a track titled “Sex Pon me”. The track is a modern Hip-hop/Reggae fusion and we wonder if you plan to release more Reggae sounding tracks in the future?
Originally when I released the reggae track it was only going to be a one-time thing, my background is Jamaican and I grew up listening to reggae so I thought I would be able to create a decent reggae song. I was also experimenting with other genres of music outside of hiphop/rap like reggae as well as rock, and country but the feedback I got for the track “Sex Pon Me” was exceptional, I will definitely be doing more reggae music and put my twist on the already amazing genre.
What are your musical goals for the future?
The goals I have for the future of my music career is for people across the world to hear the stories I tell, on some of my newer songs I talk about issue a lot of people can relate and it’s important to me that everyone possible gets a chance to listen to my stories, I am also in a collective with other people that make incredible music such as my close friend Jayvaun and L Dawg so our goal is to go global and put the world on notice that Canada has incredible talent.
What are your goals for the new year, any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
My goal for the new year is to continue to put out content that people can vibe I have a lot of music in the vault along with 8 projects. As of right now, I want to keep putting out music that is good music when the time is right I will put out the many projects that I already have done.
