What’s the inspiration behind your new single “Coming Home?”
The inspiration came from friends, one, in particular, that had his eyes set on a girl that was with a guy that wasn’t treating her right and he felt he was a better fit for her.
What led you into the hip-hop industry?
The way the music made me feel, the way that Hip Hop inspired and moved people. I wanted to capture that for my own music and utilize it for positivity.
In what ways do you feel you have evolved musically as an artist?
So far, I would have to say the range of things I can do musically has expanded, in production writing, and engineering. The ability to free flow when I sit in front of my keyboard and write.
What do you enjoy most about being an Indie artist?
The control I have over my music, and the ability to release when I want, and to paint my own pictures like an artist image-wise. Ultimately, pave my own path.
What’s the hip-hop music scene like in Toronto, Canada?
What music goals would you like to achieve before the year is over as an artist?
I am right now in the studio recording two more EP’s and I am releasing another single in December entitled Brooklyn!
What upcoming music projects can fans expect to hear from you soon?
“For most of my childhood I was raised in Detroit, Michigan and my next EP I will be releasing in January, will pay homage to the Detroit experience. The next project after that will be released in March, that EP will feature a more crossover radio/pop inspired sound with an older R&B vibe.”
