This is my life. I’ve been writing and producing for 25 years. I’ve worked with the likes of Wu Tang Clan (Raekwon), Mobb Deep (Prodigy) and many others. I’ve also opened for Travis Scott , 50 Cent , and Lil Uzi. I specialize in writing lyrics and creating melodies. I had my first movie placement in 2018 when I wrote title track to “GOTTI” movie.

Looking to work with other like minded artists and musicians in order to create timeless music and branding. As seen on MTV , BET JAMS , & Revolt , and heard on Hot97 , Power 105 , & Sirius Xm.
