Posted by Underground On Top on August 30, 2015 at 2:00 PM


.

What/who inspires you to do music? How old were you when you started?

.

The things that happen around me help me make the song I create. The first person that inspired me to do music was Lil Wayne & then followed by D-Pryde (PRYDE) // I was 12 when I started writing & recording in my basement.


 

Who do you want to work with? (Artist wise)

.

I really want to work with Dizzy Wright & Machine Gun Kelly. Dizzy wright because I feel he is one of the realest around in today's hip-hop culture.


 

What are you currently working on right now? New music, collabs, videos, etc.

.

I just released a new EP August 21st - Vll Days ep (Just working on more songs to be released.)


 

What is your most accomplished piece of work? track, albums, mixtapes, etc.?

.

7Days EP (Vll) (Available right now on Soundcloud)


Which producers would you want to work with the most?

.

I would love to work with KAYTRANADA & DEVONTEE. Kaytranada would be cool to work with because I listen to quite a few songs produced by him. Devontee would be great to work with as well because he's a local artist/ producer. I enjoy his music myself.


 

Explain how you came about your "rap" name?

.

Well, This is my 3rd & final name, but I started recording music at the age of 12. I feel everybody wanted to be in the position of a king or queen.


 

About how much time do you dedicate to your music each week?

.

I write music whenever I feel the need to. Like, if something were to happen that'd be one of the easiest ways of expressing myself. So really often to be honest. New things are happening everyday so I write just about everyday.


 

Where do you see yourself 10 years from now? What is your goal in music?

.

10 years from now I see myself doing music of some sort. Either rapping, producing, video production. Anything involved with music. My goal is to help the people surrounding me. the closest friends & family. Enough to pay the bills & travel the world.


 

Do you have a personal favorite track of your own? If so which one and why?

.

It's so hard to choose one but if I had to it'd most likely be my most recent song "IYI" Off Vll Days EP. It's more like a poem & I got a lot off my mind recording that.


 

How often do you sit down to write new material

.

Just like I was saying above, I write just about every single day. anything something comes to mind or something comes up that is a bother.
