Who are your biggest influences?

My biggest influences are my parents because I watch them take care of me and my and siblings through the good and bad. They never folded not one time. Biggie, 2 PAC, Lil Wayne, and Drake are my biggest musical influences but the list continues because a lot has influenced my music but that’s the core.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years, I see myself taking the music game and fashion world by storm. This is something I dreamed about since a kid and now I’m in the game doing shows with coast to coast and getting my music heard nationwide and worldwide. This life was always meant for me.
