Tell us about yourself and your music
I’m a veteran artist from St Louis thats worked with numerous labels & artist including the likes of Vic Damone , Tha Dungeon Family , Silk Smooth , Reico Wade & many more . I make music to motivate people in my city to never give up & turn up at the same time
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release titled ” Snap Season ” is a 10 track mix tape that features a few of my artist like Buzzo Bates & Tee West , Sunny Fanon n Mar with production by Short Jizzle , MB13 & Super producer & Vocalist Maskerade . It will be dropping in March & hosted by the super host T Marley . Keep an eye open & a ear to the streets for this project . Its an amazing project written by me
What inspired you to write this release?
Well I pretty much grew up around music all my life . My parents used to sing at everyone’s wedding reception years ago so from them practicing n performing I grew to love the art . I went from being the low man on the totem pole to becoming a rappers favorite rapper . The grind doesn’t stop
Any plans to release a video?
Yes most definitely . We’re finishing the treatment to the first single off the mix tape called ” I DO ” produced by & featuring Maskerade . it’ll be dropping probably a week before the release
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes . I’m working out some details for a all St Louis artist showcase that we’re taking on the road later this summer . Plus I’ve got a big concert bday bash coming up on February 2nd @Klymaxx in St Louis Hosted by Young Spade & J Howes
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
Well as I said earlier my parents had a group that used to sing all Motown music so my music is extremely soulful & heartfelt so I’m kind of in between hip hop & r&b & my content will stick to your ribs because its real & something an everyday person can feel
Who have you been listening to lately?
I’ve been listening to a lot of different music lately from Drake to Torey Lanez to older bands such as the SOS Band & Average White Band . I’ll never single my music out to just one genre . that’s how u touch more ppl by being LeBron like with tha music
Tell us about your passions
My kids & I’m an extreme sports fanatic . I played AAU ball in high school so I love the game . Football & baseball as well
What else is happening next in your world?
Just more music to keep my fans tuned in & turnt up . Keep looking & listening for more projects from me and my artists
