"IN HIS OWN WORDS"
I began writing music as a young kid, because it helped me escape the world and put my feelings into words. A lot of the influence in my music comes from my parents. My dad was always making mixes and spinning records from, DJ Red Alert , Mr. Magic Marley Marl, Grandmaster Flash, De La Soul, Eric B and Rakim, KRS One and more. I also consider myself to be a student of Hip Hop. I study my influences which includes Elzhi, Nas, Lupe Fiasco, Phonte, Chilla Jones, Mickey Factz, Black Thought, Kid Chaos, Real Sikh, Skyzoo and others.
I’m a Grind Mode Affiliate that has been on cyphers with the likes of Mickey Factz, Mad Squablz, Blind Fury, Diabolic, The Artifacts and Termanology. I have also opened shows for Jeru The Damaja, Reef The Lost Cauze, Talib Kweli, Sean Price and Common.
I challenge myself every time I’m on the mic. When I write, I try to use imagery and wordplay, while tackling topics, such as social issues, self-reflection, and competition.
