𝟭. Where are you from and what is your hobby?
I’m from Chicago. My hobby is music, praying and playing the game. I like to listen to random beats and make it a mash up by rapping my old songs I made with it or any song by any artist I really like it it’s almost like a mediation for me.
𝟮. How did your get into music?
I’ve always been into music since birth, but I decided to start making my own music when I was 8 years old and my grandfather was a musician and he wrote his own jazz music. One day, I snuck into his room because he was a grumpy old man that didn’t like for people to touch his stuff but I’ve always been a curious kid and one day, while he was out, I noticed he left his door cracked and I saw the piano. So I went in his room and started looking around, then I sat down at the piano and started messing around on the keys and before I knew it, he was just standing at the door and he asked me "did I wanna learn how to play for real?", and of course I said yea and that is where my creativity started.
𝟯. Who are your biggest influences?
My biggest influences is Outkast, Erykah Badu, Pharrell, Lauren Hill, Chance The Rapper, Donald Glover, Tyler the Creator, Steve Lacy, the internet, Frank Ocean the list goes on.
4. What are your goals in the music industry?
My biggest goal is to touch people and for people to understand where I’m coming from. I also love to perform and vibe with my supporters.
5. If you could choose a location to perform at, what would it be?
Coachella Duh! The VMAs. I really wanna perform at Coachella because I love different types of music and I love being surrounded by other artists that have their own style.
6. What is your all-time favorite song?
My all time favorite song is Palace/Curse by the internet and Tyler The creator because palace remind me of when I started living by myself and I had a nice lil set up in my nice Lil townhouse apartment and it was my palace. I loved having my own space to think, create and grow. And Curse kept growing on my heart because my bestfriend told me he had feelings for me and that’s the first time I really felt special.
7. Most embarrassing moment?
My most embarrassing moment was when I was in elementary school. I thought I was a real life ninja and tried to karate kick jump over the desk to get in the line to go to recess and my foot got caught on the edge of the desk and I bust my butt.
8. Proudest accomplishment?
My proudest accomplishments was when I got my dream job at Guitar Center which is where I got my first dm from Fat Joe and I cried at work not cause I’m a fan girl, but because he thought my music was dope.
9. What is something about you that might surprise someone who knows you the best?
I used to be at a point in life where I just couldn’t understand how people could want to have kids. Like I was all about kids, but then my sister got pregnant and I saw everything she had to go through and it immediately made me not want to ever have kids anymore.
𝟭𝟬. What is your dream collaboration?
My dream collaboration is with Andre 3000 because he’s Andre 3000.
