What is your biggest accomplishment thus far in your career?
“This far in my career I entered the game about 1 year ago. I don’t have a bigg accomplishment at the moment. I’m still looking for more competitions to enter and challenges to take part in. I have done a few. My first rap cypher consisted of all females. That’s back when I use to rap with my book in hand. I wasn’t prepared for that night and I lost only due to my lack of preparation because my content was up to par. That motivated me to grow. So I guess this far I don’t know what my legacy would be exactly. I just want people to see me and be able to connect. I know as an individual one of the biggest things I struggle with is feeling like I am the only one who goes through certain things. I just want to let people know they’re not alone.
What legacy do wish you leave behind?
“In the next 5 years I want to have an album out as well as music videos. I also want to expand my fan base, get more people exposed to my music and see how they’re feeling it.”
