1 – First of all, can you describe your music style?
With my style of music, I talk about “real life” situations, the good, the bad and the ugly.
2 – Is it true you started your music career as a Reggae artist?
No, I never was a Reggae Artist, always a Hip-Hop Artist. But I do love Reggae and the whole dancehall vibe.
3 – How did you find your way into Rap and Hip-Hop?
Growing up I always listened to the Notorious BIG, the way his lyrics flow got my attention, and I was on the chubby side, so listening to him and seeing him perform, made me felt like the sky was the limit, and I could be on a stage performing for thousands of people.
The most unique aspect of my lyrics is my wordplay, the way I line up my punch lines to make people say “wow, did you hear what he said”.
5 – Who would you like to dedicate your track “Top Of The World” to and why?
I would dedicate “Top Of The World” to all the underdogs, everyone who started from the bottom, because once you dream it, you could achieve it, there are no limits.
6 – What’s your favorite line/verse?
My favorite verse is when am naming some of the great men who came from humble beginnings and made history, achieving what many deemed impossible.
7 – Can you share with us any funny anecdote while shooting the “Top Of The World” video?
I honestly can not think of any funny moments while shooting the music video. Overall it was a very dope/ great experience.
There are so many great artists I would like to collaborate with, like Jay Z, Rick Ross, Drake, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Meek Mill. I would like to collaborate with Davido, with that Afrobeat, Popcaan with the dancehall twist. That’s just to name a few.
9 – Can you give us more information about your next single or projects?
Well, we have already recorded a number of songs, with 2 of the best producers in New York Budda and Grandz and our aim is to promote one single after the other. We are in the process of planning a US tour.
10 – What are 3 things you couldn’t go a day without?
I can’t go a day without Praying, spending quality time with my 3 sons/kings and writing lyrics.
