What defines “Success” to you..
Success to me is making sure that the soul is happy. Being happy with the life you live including ones job or relationships. Just making sure you feel happy and at peace with yourself at the end of each day. Making sure you saw as much as you could see and do as much as you wanted to do.

What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking..
Music advice that changed my way of thinking would be to write or record as soon as you have an idea. Once you hear a melody or a tune in your head it may not ever come back so you have to take advantage.

I live in…
Greensboro, North Carolina. The music scene here is very active. There are many hip/hop and rap artist that I have met and they all have created their own personal lanes.


I use Studio 1. I still have a lot to learn but I really enjoy making music and taking on the challenge.  I’m working on an album now so the goal is to get it finished and distribute the music.

Song name: Always mine
Music Genre:: Pop

This song is about…
a person who has realized their worth, and now has their eyes wide open and sees that the relationship was harmful.

My music is…
a mix of personal stories and creative writing that is put into a dark space sound like atmosphere . I take my own experiences and put them into all my work. I enjoy minor chords and echoes and I try to make sure these are the sounds created in my music.
