Reppin’ (What city you reppin’?):
Affiliation (What crew or artists you roll with?):
MOOD, Wannabattle, 7L & Esoteric
Influences (Who inspires you? Not limited to just hip-hop):
Nas, Bob Marley, Nina Simone
Backstory (How’d you get in the game? How did the group form? What work did you put in before getting signed to a label?)
I got in the game by making a demo with my group MOOD and shopping those songs to every Label possible in NY until we got signed to TVT Records.
Current project (What are you pushing right now? What can people expect from it? Feel free to just hype your album here…why did you name the album that name? Was there a theme? Any funny stories during its creation?)
I am currently pushing "Flow Season" a cd I did with 7L feat. Cormega, Eso and the Grouch. I named it Flow Season because I felt that it would be my season after the cd dropped. One thing that happend that happend that was kinda funny is when Eso emailed me and said I stole his DJ.
Purpose (What kind of impact do you hope to have on the game? Do you just want to go platinum or is there something more?)
I want to make a lyrical impact by being a dope writter and performer without having to comprimise for the money
Is hip-hop really dead? (Wax philosophical here, break down what you think of hip-hop today or compare it to when you were coming up. Good? Bad? Break it down!)
Hip-Hop is definately not dead, there are just more groups now adays that achieve commercial success then there was when I was coming up
Three wishes (If you had three wishes to change anything within hip-hop, what would they be? Bring someone back to life? Get a Kanye West beat? Make snap music disappear?):
If I had three wishes I would make the entire world middle class get rid of poverty. I would take Jay Z’s position as President of Def Jam and last but not least get a joint Bank account with Oprah. LOL
