Tell us about yourself and your music
I started making music in late 2019 after going to an A Boogie concert and hearing him say “I’m only 21 if I can do this you can do anything you put your mind to” so I took that speech and walked with It. Ever since I started every day I see improvement in myself as well as my music. I’ve been constantly going towards my goals daily checking off my short term and long term goals whether it’s hitting a certain amount of streams or creating a specific style of music. I’ve taken something into consideration in my career and that’s to instead of worrying about my goal shoot for higher and believe in myself and I will achieve what I shoot for.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release was a single called “LOSO WORLD”. This single was for me to express my feelings of how I felt when I lost my brother earlier this year and how devastated I was when I heard what happened to him. No matter what this song was made for pain purposes It wasn’t made for anyone to like or dislike I just wanted to show my feelings to the world and this track ended up leaving an impact on people who encountered the same situation.
What inspired you to write this release?
What inspired me to write this release was just the pain I was holding inside and had to put my feeling into music because of my passion and that’s all that my brother would want is to speak my life and show the world greatness.
Describe the writing and recording process
The writing and recording process was very emotional but I was able to actually speak my mind no matter who judges me or what anyone thinks about my music.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
To end off 2020 I and my team are currently presenting my music to TV and Film. Me and my producers Trill Deal Digital, Timmixs, TripleSix are putting together an amazing album to end off the year filled with a few surprises. Along with this a special thanks to Theodore “Stretch” who is helping me take my career to the next level as well as my producers helping out as well. 2021 we plan to take the stages at any opportunity as well as the COVID is over and places start to reopen and with plans to do some school performances.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I tend to listen to all types of music. Lately, I have been listening to a lot of pop and rock music on top of hip hop to come up with different melodies so when people hear me they can tell me different than other artists. I try to make music to different beats other than staying on one path and have been putting together my own brand and design. Also, I don’t try to copy the latest trend of a bunch of jewelry I want to be different and dress with streetwear but with my own taste and the help of my brother Chris Brosius.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Lately, I have been listening to a lot of A Boogie, Luke Combs, Shawn Mendes, Justin Beiber, and The Kid Laroi.
Who are your biggest influences?
A Boogie, Roddy Ricch, 50 cent, and Lil Baby, and my family are my biggest influences it’s just something about their music that hits me differently.
Tell us about your passions
I have a very high passion for music, I was a drummer for 10 years on top of playing keyboard and alto saxophone. Other than music I was a wrestler, boxer, and football player which converts to music in my own way because on the field and on the mat you have to be hungry and your main goal is to win but It takes a lot of heart, hustles ambition and humbleness to achieve the end goal of greatness so I apply that to the music when I’m creating my art.
What else is happening next in your world?
I plan to take my music to the next level and be the 1st out of my city to make It big and give back to my community and the ones who have to me. Also, I plan to someday be someone that the younger kids below me will look up to and I can help them achieve their dreams. Never in my life did I ever believe I would be where I am today but when I believed in it I made It happen and believed in god.
