What first drew you into music?
What first drew me into music was my idol Michael Jackson. My father recorded and produced music so i already was musically inclined. I just had to get going. Bryson tiller i can say was my motivation after Trap Soul.
Your track “Baby Girl” is absolutely amazing! How did you achieve such a great signature sound in such a short time? Also, what is your creative process like?
It took a while for me to maintain my own sound. I had to stop listening to rappers i liked who were already on , and just listen to myself a lot more to master the sound. My creative process comes from me singing random melodies in my head or saying the same line over and over and then i jot it down and continue until i have words. Then i go searching for a beat to go with the rhythm and i make adjustments as i record .
Going over your Soundcloud we can tell you love experimenting with new sounds. Can you tell us more about your studio setup and some of your favorite plugins/instruments?
Yes i love experimenting different sounds with my voice on different instruments. I usually go to a real recording studio in the Bronx or in Long Island City with engineers ready to work. I prefer mostly beats that contain piano , guitar, high hats or bass. Any of that nature and it’s going to be a hit.
Your music sounds very organic and authentic. Do you play any real-life instruments?
As of now i don’t play any live instruments but in the past , middle school days i used to play the trumpet in a school band. I was good but not as good as i record .
What are your musical goals for the future?
My musical goals for the future is to make it to the top. I want to be an artist who has longevity and who’s presence is always going to be accepted. I know i can last when i can get up there because I’ve learned the tools and i have the tools to be consistent.
What are your goals for the coming months? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
The next couple months I’m looking to work on singles and dropping music videos. I do have an upcoming project coming next year Spring time “Repected King 2”. The first one came out in 2018 so it’s only right if i bring a part 2 to the EP.
