"My ultimate goal is to have my seat at the table within the music industry leveraging that into other industries (TV, film, and technology). I may be just known as a “positive” rapper but it is deeper than that. I create music based on human experience. I like to discuss the good and bad side of life. I feel that’s more realistic, nothing in life is always positive, nothing life is always negative. My music provides a balance of both."
From being creative as a child writing short stories, poems and more to learning how to write songs later; studying song format would help him grow and soon enough he knew his talent was worthy of a career in music that would happen as a result of building relationships, keeping up with information, and releasing quality music that is timeless.
