Jay-z, Nines, D-block Europe and Chief Keef I have a variety of inspirations, to be honest.

How do you go about writing a song and what is your process?  

I like to be alone, I put my headphones in and just listen to the beat I let the beat speak to me and then that’s when I start writing/freestyle it’s like I’m having a conversation.

What is the concept behind your forthcoming project if working on one? 

It’s about pain over losing friends to death and prison it’s about how I grew up and how I want to change my life.

Any plans on touring to promote your latest single?
