How did you get started?

I began my career being signed to Radix Records, a now-defunct independent label based out of Chicago. It’s roster also included former Jive Records recording artist, Syleena Johnson. While there, I had the opportunity to collaborate with a then up-and-coming producer name “KANYE WEST”. Ever since then, I’ve been grinding year in and year out building my brand and fanbase by performing at monthly local events, going out of state on independent tours which included stops in Texas (SXSW), Atlanta (A3C Festival) & New York (Def Jam, Universal Republic & Roc Nation) and receiving magazine placements in such publications as XXL (2015 Freshman Class Issue Pg. 69), El Barrio (2015 Spring Issue Pg. 12) & The Underground Fix (Issues 29 Pg. 14; 41 Pg. 15 & 42 Pg. 20-22)

Current Projects

I’m currently pushing my single entitled, “HUSTLE”, which I produced, and will also be featured on the AND1 MIXTAPE: WEST COAST VOLUME. The video is in the works so stay tuned. Until then, go cop the single on all major digital music outlets.

What do you bring to the Industry?

90’s-Early 2000’s HIP-HOP fast-forwarded to the year 2016. I’m helping to bring a balance to the industry because I feel it is so desperately needed. Go check cop the single “HUSTLE” available now iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and all other digital music outlets.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Touring, doing music on a full-time basis, maybe a little acting and getting into the behind the scenes of pro basketball (my 2nd passion). I just want to stay busy with having a lucrative successful “career”.
