How long have you been in the music industry?
For as long as I can remember. I started Djn in the 4th Grade making mixtapes and I just kept expanding my interest in the field of music.
How did you get started in the music business in the first place?
I always watched my father and my uncle. My father was a big deal in the gospel scene around here. And my uncle managed Boyz II Men and Diddy and others so watching them made me pursue it.
How would you describe your latest single?
Well, the project is called Now That You Know and I’d describe it as just letting everyone know how I felt at the time also while letting them know I am for real with this music as well because a lot of people didn’t know.

I’d say Bryan Cox, polo da don, Ty Dolla, and anyone who can write or produce a great song.
How do you go about writing a song and what is your process?

What did you buy with your first check off music?
I paid bills lol. The first real money I received from music was needed at the time.
What are must haves when your in the studio working?
The TV has to be on something that I would actually watch can’t be anything. Maybe a little Lq And water. The session has to be closed off as well. Only me.
What is the best piece of advice in this business you actually followed?
Steve Lobel always told me The coach last longer than the Player. So I learned other skills so I could always have work and be a leader.
