Music is life to me. I express my deepest thoughts through my craft. Music gives me the strength to move forward no matter who or what tries to hold me back.
My music dream is to become an icon a household name.
If I could change the world I would start by eliminating disease.

My favorite rappers are Rakim, Nas, Jay-Z, Tupac, Notorious BIG, M.O.P and of course myself. As far as producers DR Period, DR Dre, and Timberland. R&B singers like Alicia Keys, Neyo, Chris Brown, Mary J, Blige and Beyonce also inspire a lot of my music production. James Brown, Sam Cook, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers are icons and very inspirational/
My life and the lives of the people around me. World issues.
I'm a gangsta rapper but i try to promote a message to the world that the life of a thug is not what it seems to be. Too many of us glorify the street life, but real thugs and gangsters will tell you that this life is nothing to be proud of or admired. Many of us do the things we do out of circumstance and not choice.
There is no feeling like performing in front of a crowd. I feel elated each time i perform.
I believe the creative aspect of music is slowly being removed by marketing schemes and gimmicks. Too many artist dont take the time to really sit down and create good music.
Drooble is a great platform for artist to connect and network with each other. Also a great way to get the attention of record labels and show promoters.
The internet has taken over the industry. Now this is not always a bad thing, but i think that a lot of artist don't have to work as hard to get heard.
It's important to support local artist as well as the larger artists. Your local scene is normally the foundation of your fan base. If you cant get the support from your local scene it will be impossible to gain support on a wider scale.
Originality, creativity, personality, stage presence, a message with meaning, and great music.
