A: My promise is that you will get 1000% energy, and work that will galvanize your fan base and make them want to rewind. I pride myself in creating memorable verses and infectious choruses.
Q: What do you like most about your job?

Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: What are your accomplishments? I tell them abt numerous songs with industry artists, writing wise and on myself. Appearances in multiple magazine s such as XXL, Source and Right On.

A: I would take my laptop, mic, cellphone, an outfit and a pen & pad.

A: I would describe my style as very versatile, but a East Coast/Midwest mixture with my voice, patterns and delivery.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with Jay-Z, as he is the pinnacle of the lane I am in. But a purely hip hop perspective and business.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: One tip I would share is for artists to thoroughly practice their verses, hooks etc before recording. It makes it a smoother process then writing then reading off the phone from my experience.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I generally work on Hip-Hop, Trap, and Soul. I am open to all genres of rap.
