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

Music to me is a way to change peoples mind frame and influence the mood or "vibe" of a setting. it gives me the ability to be able to create and share my opinions and feelings with others. Music gives me a reason to live.

What is your music dream?

My music dream is too have my own music career as a conscious rap artist, and hopefully become something great in the world.

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

If I could change the world, I would start with the fact that everyone needs to be able to truly pursue what they want to do with their lives, regardless of finances and what other people think of them. I would remove "judgement" from the world, I think that would be a good start.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

One of the most memorable songs from my childhood would have to be one from Shania Twain, believe it or not. She was in the playlist for household chores?

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Emenim, Kendrick, Lil Dicky, Lil Wayne, Logic, G-Eazy, Tech N9ne

What inspires you to make music?

I am inspired to make music because I want to CHASE AND ACHIEVEZ MY DREAMS. I am inspired by the world, and it's influence on my reality. The people of the world and the effect it can have on groups of people is another factor. But ultimately, I love the gratification and the life of a music artist.

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

The message I want to send with my music is one that makes people open their minds and think more about society and offer different viewpoints and opinions. I want people to be on a conscious level when listening to my music, and I want to make people happy!

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

I can't say that I have preformed in front of am audience yet, that will come in December! ?

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

The reality of the musician these days is a wild one when achieved and I want to be every part of it. As far as improvements, I think that depends on everyone as an individual.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's my first day with the app but I have hopes for it.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The most frustrating part right now of being a musician is not having the finances or the proper equipment.

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

No. There isn't rezlly much going on locally. Thats 's why before I take off out of the area I would like to offer something for people to follow.

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

This doesn't have so much to do with the quality of the music. If you would like to target a larger audience, you've got to do the majority of the work yourself until you have the means of someone else doing it for you. I think it is essential to be hard-working, motivated, strategic and dedicated. You can't throw yourself into the game and expect results without putting in the work.

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