What is a quote you live by?
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”
I also live by the notion that “Nothing comes to a sleeper but a dream”, and last but not least “TIME IS MONEY “
What are some important achievements and milestones you feel proud to share?
An important achievement for me was when I purchased my dream house at the age of 21 and purchased my dream car, a Lamborghini Huracan at the age of 26 years old!
I also attended a YSL party back in 2022 which was a life-changing experience meeting some notable Musicians like Young Thug, that inspired me heavily and really helped encourage me on my path to pursuing music further!
Tell us a little bit more about your background, where were you born and raised, and how you got into music:
I was born in west Africa, Monrovia Liberia to be exact. I moved to the United States at the age of 9 years old. I got into music heavily when I first moved to the United States.
Lil Boosie was the first artist I took an interest in when I first got introduced to Music.
How did your background affect your journey and current situation?
Honestly, my background affected my journey in a very positive way. I was introduced to something new and different from what I grew up around while in Africa.
Hip Hop wasn’t as popular growing up where I grew up. When I got to the United States everything changed and I got introduced to Hip Hop thanks to my older cousin.
What influenced you to become a Musical Artist:
The lifestyle that I live influenced me to become an artist. I listen to a lot of Artists speak on what their life was like and I always said to myself “Damn that’s me, I can relate to this a lot” so the decision was pretty easy getting into music.
Was there a certain moment that was a turning point in your life:
The turning point in my life was when I moved out of Florida to Tennessee at the age of 19.
That was a life-changing moment for me looking back. I had zero friends or family in Tennessee when I moved.
I had no option other than to work hard and grind. I was distraction free as well, which was a major element in my growth.
We love your new song “Everyday”, what can we expect from you musically in the future?
Yeah, I had a lot of motivation in my life to release that song and the response has been incredible! It got me feeling like Music is something I was meant to do and I’m excited to release my album in early 2023!
