FLAG…
My single “FLAG” is my biggest to date. Just because I think it matches a certain sound that moves easy on clubs without compromising lyrical ability or content. I’m proud that I was able to make it that way. I was able to tell a story about leaving past relationships in the past without remorse and still make it sound good to turn up to.

My music is…
reflective of what I think the most vital music right now is. I try to record according to what I think is gonna move people to feel something natural to hemselves. The best to do that is just maintaining a certain sense of honesty in your music. So I’m always gonna try to do that.

I live in the Bronx…
I think people know the music scene is strong out there, but it’s more than just hip hop. The house music and reggaeton scene is strong out here too. I think coming from a place that can appreciate different types of music makes for a diverse ear in the creative process. From Salsa Con Fuego to Silhouette, there’s a lot to enjoy.


It’s definitely not easy to stand out…
People have so many lanes to release music from now, and it feels like everybody’s a rapper. Reaching out to anybody wit links to the industry is hard because they don’t see a reason to entertain your ability to make music when the crowd of people making it is so large.

Music Business…
I’m at a point where I’m just playing the long game, and developing a fan base and everything so we can make things happen organically. I can feel the progression the last two years so I feel like I’m doing it right.

Inspirations…
There’s a good amount of people who’ve inspired me throughout the years but I’ve learned to really be dependent on myself and my team. That’s kind of eliminated my interest in NEEDING a co-sign or attention from outside parties so much. I’d rather make it independently, and meet my heroes as my peers.
