How would you describe the music that you typically create?
Typically I create Dancehall reggae music but I like to switch it up sometimes.

If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
What is one message you would give to your fans?
I love y’all and thank you for your support!
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
The internet has greatly impacted the music business because now it has become the music business. You no longer need a major record label, now the major record labels need you. All because of the internet and social media.
Which famous musicians do you admire?
Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, Nas, Jay-Z, Jadakiss, 50 Cent, KRS-One, and Rakim just to name a few cause this will be another long list lol
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Take things for what they are and not for what you want them to be.
If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
I’d change it to where there would be more good people with good intentions, who do good business and make talent the icing on the cake. It’s too many shady, fake people looking for realness, goodness, and honesty but that’s not how the universe works.
What’s next for you?
More hit songs, features with big name artists, performances, and more money! lol!!!
