What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is therapy. Music allows me to freely express my thoughts and feelings, experiences, desires without limitations.

What is your music dream?

To become one of the top artists/producers of all-time. To spread the belief that we as a people can make a real living doing exactly what we desire, what makes us happy the most. I want my brand Cloud 10 Productions to be one of the largest,fastest growing, long lasting production companies in the world.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I'd get rid of war. I can't see how adults expect kids to not bully each other, but them as the "grown ups" can't even make agreements for the better of the world with out killing each other. And wasting soooooooo much money doing it smh. It's really a damn shame. Everyone could have nice things.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Barry White - Telling Me This, Telling Me That. My dad used to play that song all the time. Or James Brown

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Tupac, Jay-Z, Pharrell, Drake, Rakim, Playboi Carti, Bear In Heaven, Gardens & Villa, Nirvana, Metro Boomin, Future. I'm sure I'm not naming a lot more.

What inspires you to make music?

Creating dope sounds. Being successful by my own creations, leaving a positive legacy that the world will know.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Be above average in whatever you choose to dedicate your life to. Go 10/10. 100%

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

If that's what God feels like. I think I feel like God whn I'm performing. It's one of my favorite things to do. I can't wait to have my own world tour.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

It's entertaining. The only thing I'd say I have a problem with is the violence being portrayed like its cool. It's not, young people are really dying out here because of that shit. Can still turn up but be safe.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's cool s far.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Overthinking everything once I get closer to the conclusion of a project or the mix of a song. Start to doubt a little at times because I've listened to the song so many times by the time I'm finished mixing and mastering even though I know it's dope.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes! I show up to events whenever I can. I come spend money even when I don't have it like that every time. I also share some of their music on my IG some time.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

A dope image, and brand. Good marketing.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
