Welcome $wank $inatra, and congrats on the debut of "For Real" this past June! What did this single release mean for you artistically? Did you feel that you're entering a new chapter of your artistry with this release?

Thank you! “For Real” is the 5th track on my most recent project that also dropped this June, Elevation. Artistically, this song and the rest of the album showed the versatility I can have; which helps show me I’m improving not just as a rapper, but as an artist. “For Real” is one of my favorite tracks because I provide different flows for every verse that also ends with the same bridges going into the hooks.


Can you explain the kind of integrity that went into the production and overall synthetization of "For Real"?

It took my producer, to find this dope guitar sample, and I watched him build around it. From making sure his piano was in key with a rhythm that fit well, to the drums not being overly powered, but knocking how they’re supposed to. I looked at this creation as a chance to really just rap. It’s one of my favorites because it’s a song filled with dope lyricism, with a catchy hook to top it all off. I give major props to Mickey C Beats because as soon as I heard it, I was inspired to make something dope to it.


It's clear that your inspirations stem out from artists such as Biggie Smalls to 2Pac, as well as more contemporary artists such as Drake. What specific inspirations do you feel you've extracted from these artists, and how do you feel it aids in amplifying your sound?

When it comes to what Biggie Smalls and 2Pac did for Hip-Hop, to me, it’s bigger than music. Their impact is what’s so special to me because even 20+ years later, they still remain relevant. Of those like Drake, I’ve been able to watch him stay in a top position in the game, and adapt through years and try different things. I appreciate the aspect of not shying away from doing new things, so I’m willing to test my skills in any style of music. I also appreciate what they all did during their eras, (while Drakes still able to continue), I want to prove to myself I can give listeners that same thing.


Where's the next goal with your music, now that "For Real" is released?! Would you consider yourself the type of artist to plan out their next moves, or would you say you typically go with the flow artistically?

My next goal is to get 1 to 2 videos done to a few tracks off my album, Elevation. I never considered myself an artist to plan out their next moves until I began to learn and understand how I want the world to perceive the music I create. After taking some time to complete an entire project, during COVID-19, I vowed to release multiple promotional posts, leading up to the album's release. This required me to pick specific times, every day of the week so that people from all of my social media platforms can see what’s in store at the same time.


What's next for you?

Next, I have multiple songs in the vault for the next release, but I’m still going to keep promoting my album for a while. For a sneak peek, I have two songs that I know will be dropping in the near future. “Check Your Phone” produced by DRKNS Production, and “Get Up” produced by Mickey C Beats. Stay tuned for more, I think you’ll love what’s coming next.
