"IN HIS OWN WORDS"
Grind Mode Cypher - 2x2 Fest Vol. 4 was my first experience with the collective. Since then I have produced 15 cyphers. My the most memorable cypher is Charlotte Vol. 10. It was an honor to have Blind Fury on my beat and the lineup was great too! Not to mention all the success behind that video, now coming up on 3M views! Shoutout Lingo for making it all happen.
My father and sister were heavy into music as I was growing up and I think that had a lasting effect on me. I remember how I started making music and to be honest, it is a little bit ridiculous. I was walking home from my friend's place at night and started hearing rhythms in my head from my footsteps. It was just the same old boring street and I guess I was entertaining myself. I got home, found a torrent version of Fruity Loops, and started creating the melodies I had in my head. I've Never stopped since!
My biggest accomplishments would be in the Latin American music scene. I've been working with artists like, Ojay The Great, Mr Shadow, Bozo, and many more.
My main goal right now is to grow my new YouTube channel, possibly release some music videos, and start teaching/helping out other producers as well!
