How did you get started rapping?
I started making music becauseI knew I could rap better then a nigga I was fucking!
Why does your latest album Give n’ Take mean to you?
Give n Take shows you all of me. A lot of times I feel misunderstood and like people turn their backs on me. So that’s why my album cover is my back because I turned my back on them too. This album shows you every side of me, tells my story, give n’ take.
What’s your message behind the music?
My message behind my music is that this is my life! Either you gon listen or not!
