What was the earliest hip hop memory you can recall?
Stumbling across the “Back to the Hotel” single by N2DEEP when i was about 7 or 8 years old.

How did you initially get into writing and recording music?
Juvi, lol my bunk mate was a rapper. That was 99, when I got home i wrote my first song called “Brainwashers”

Who’re some artists that inspire you?
Digital Underground, ICP, Cannibal ox, Aesop Rock. Sometimes its not even music that inspires me a conversation will be make me write an entire song.

When people listen to the songs, what do you want them to take away from it?

They got to listen to it first. lol

Last year, you dropped your latest album “Elevator Music For Different Dimensions” across all streaming platforms! Please give us some background on that project!? Could you tell me the inspiration behind the project and artwork?

I originally started the project in 2014, life happened and I put it on the back burner. After my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016 I restarted the album, then in 2018 my mom passed away from cancer while in the middle of the project, I almost scrapped the album for good after that.
I keep all my covers pretty basic.

Are you working on any new music?

Not as much as I should be.

What else can we expect from you in 2020?

More videos.

Our most important question, what is your definition of “Underground Hip Hop”.

A never ending plethra of the good times and bad times being put into poetry and imagery.

Where can fans find you? Drop all your links!

Lastly, is there any advice you have for anyone trying to set their foot in as recording artists?

Dont be different, it wont work out. Hip Hop is a clique and if you arent looking/sounding like others, you will be overlooked.
