What first drew you into music?

I CAN’T REALLY REMEMBER WHEN MUSIC FIRST CLICKED WIT ME ON THAT LEVEL CUZ MUSIC IS SUCH A NATURAL THANG TO BE DRAWN TO, BUT I CAN SAY THAT WHEN I FIRST MOVED TO THE US FROM MEXICO WHEN I WAS 7 OR 8 YEARS OLD WAS WHEN I FIRST GOT EXPOSED TO POP, ALTERNATIVE ROCK AND GRUNGE, AND RAP, ALL AROUND THE SAME TIME. IT WAS SO DIFFERENT TO THE MEXICAN AND LATINO MUSIC I HAD HEARD ALL MY LIFE THAT I WAS INSTANTLY ATTRACTED TO IT, ESPECIALLY ROCK AND RAP, AND THE LIFESTYLES THAT THE MEDIA PORTRAYED SURROUNDING ARTISTS (I LEARNED ABOUT AMERICAN CULTURE THRU VH1 TV SHOWS LOL).

DEEP DOWN, I ALWAYS WANTED TO DO MUSIC BUT IT NEVER FELT LIKE THE “RIGHT” TIME TO DO IT FOR ME. MY FAM WAS NOT SUPPORTIVE OF ME PURSUING SOMETHIN’ LIKE MUSIC OR ART BUT I WAS ALWAYS “THINKIN” OF BECOMING MY OWN BRAND AND MAKIN’ MUSIC, ART, AND ENTERTAINMENT THROUGH THIS BRAND.

Listening to your music we can tell you love incorporating interesting new sounds and techniques within each track! What inspires you to experiment and evolve?

WHEN U HEAR MY MUSIC, I WANT U TO FEEL WHAT I FELT WHEN MAKING THAT TRACK, SO I TRY TO MAKE EACH SONG LIKE A MOVIE: IF I TALK ABOUT A FULL MOON, THEN U MIGHT HEAR SOMETHIN ASSOCIATED WIT A FULL MOON SUCH AS A WOLF HOWLING OR W/E.

I TRY TO BLEND ALL OF THE STYLES THAT HAVE EVER INSPIRED ME INTO ONE SOUND NO MATTER WHAT GENRE IT CAME FROM. LIFE AND THE STORIES THAT PPL TELL ME INSPIRE ME, AND I WANT TO BE CONFINED TO A GENRE. I WANNA MAKE THE MUSIC THAT I WANT TO MAKE AND IF PPL FW IT THEN THAT’S THE BEST I CAN HOPE FOR.

It seems like you already found your signature sound 😊 Do you have any tips for upcoming musicians that can’t seem to find their own sound?

BE YOURSELF CUZ EVERYBODY ELSE IS ALREADY TAKEN LOL. ITS OK TO IMITATE STYLES, BUT ALWAYS TRY TO STAY OG TO URSELF, AND ALWAYS TRY TO PUSH BOUNDARIES FURTHER THAN UR LAST SONG OR PROJECT.

IF YOU GET STUCK CREATIVELY, TAKE SOME TIME OFF TO GET INSPIRED, TRAVEL, GO OUT OF UR REGULAR ENVIRONMENT, OR SPEND SOME TIME ALONE. SOLITUDE ALWAYS HELPS ME GATHER MY THOUGHTS, BUT IF I CAN GIVE ANY ADVICE, ITS DON’T BE LAZY.

Your track “Munny” is your best track in our opinion! From its artwork to the Incredibly powerful sound we absolutely love it. Could you tell us more about the story behind this track? Also, what is your creative process like?

THIS WAS ACTUALLY A COOL STORY OF MUSIC BRINGIN PPL TOGETHER: I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO MAKE MY COVERART, WHEN A FRIEND ON IG HOOKED ME UP WIT HER GIRL, @prettyboyemmy (@BLUEDREAM ON SOUNDCLOUD). I HIT HER UP AND SHE WAS HAPPY TO HELP ME MAKE A COVER, BUT WE FOUND HER OTHER FRIEND COULD DO THE STYLE I WANTED FOR HELL$PAWN $HAWTY BETTER… SHE ENDED UP ASKING ME IF WE COULD MAKE A SONG THO, AND WHEN I LISTENED TO HER MUSIC, I INSTANTLY GOT AN IDEA WIT A BEAT I HAD JUST BOUGHT FROM YUNG CORTEX. 

I SENT HER THE BEAT AND SHE LOVED IT! LITERALLY 15 MIN LATA SHE HAD ALREADY SENT IT BACK TO ME WITH SOMETHING RECORDED AND MIXED!! AT FIRST I DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO REALLY ADD VERSES TO NOT MESS UP HER PARTS, BUT I ENDED UP FIGURING OUT WE COULD ACTUALLY SOUND DOPE IF OUR PARTS OVERLAPPED. A WEEK LATA, I DID MY PARTS, SENT THEM BACK TO HER AND SHE LIKED IT SO THAT WAS THAT.

What are your musical goals for the future?

WORK HARD AND STEADY TO BRING THE UNDERGROUND NEW MUSIC AND VISUALS. I WANNA BLOW TF UP, BUT IF IT DON’T HAPPEN THEN I JUST WANNA BE PART OF THE UNDERGROUND THAT INSPIRES THE NEXT WAVE OF MAINSTREAM MUSIC.

What do you have planned for the coming months? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?

AFTER JUST DROPPING HELL$PAWN $HAWTY, IM GONNA BE FOCUSING ON BRINGING OUT VISUALS FOR SOME OF THE SINGLES ON THE MIXTAPE. IM GONNA START PUTTING MY MUSIC ON YOUTUBE AND BECOME MORE ACTIVE ON SPOTIFY.

IM ALSO STARTING MY SECOND MIXTAPE, FINAL $TREET PHANTA$Y WHICH IS GONNA COINCIDE WIT THE RELEASE OF THE FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE IN MARCH!!! #CLOUTSTRIFE

(THE LEADING PROTAGONIST OF FINAL FANTASY VII IS CLOUD STRIFE SO IMM A BE CLOUT STRIFE LOL)
