How have you ended up in the music industry?

Different showcases and networking
I’m relatively still new

What do you think of the music industry in 2018?

The music industry in 2018 could’ve been better but I pay attention to artists like Griselda, Vab Vito, Young Rob, Goo Goo da rambler, Dai Dai on the 5th floor, Ildehood band, Mcloud, Jame$ fifty, E.d Matrix, Damienwhite, Bishop nehru, Pro Era etc

Who do you think the most influential artist?

There’s tons of influential artists but for me I’m going with Tupac. Probably a cliche answer to most but the life I witness him live I felt was a replica of mine. Three songs I can sit back and think to is Reincarnation, Mammas just a little girl, and Me against the world. Deep songs I really love

Nobody big time but artists on the come up like me.

How do you think you differ from other artists?

My music I want to be classified as a rollercoaster. I want to channel different emotions when people listen to my music.
