We loved listening to “Make It Happen (Boom Bap).” Can you delve deeper into the meaning behind this song? How was this song intended to feel for your listeners?
Make It Happen, is a get-up and out of your own mind type of song. It's built on making our dreams come true and putting any doubtful ideas that hinder progression. I want my fans to know my truth, I share that I've been through tough times, that it hasn't all been easy and yet, I choose to rise again. When I heard the beat, I knew that I could make something soulful, 90's era, and just flow. Who do you draw from when it comes to musical influences? How have they shaped your artistry?
I love my old school flow cats and beats like J Dilla, Nas, Craig Mack, Tupac, Lil Kim, Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah, A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang, Pharcyde, Busta Rhymes, Big Pun, Immortal Technique and so many more. When you grow up inspired by these guys, you make it happen, just like they did! What is your biggest goal for your future musical endeavors? Is this being planned or put into place currently?
My vision is to inspire 6 billion + people around the world, through my music, way of life, and story. My vision is touring the world, being paid as the highest artist and entrepreneur in the world, using my gift to connect the dot ending world poverty, using my voice for policy, supporting the decease of systemic slavery and all forms and living long, healthy and sexy. Every day I get to take one step at a time to make my vision come to fruition. I'm currently living it as we speak. A lot of times I can't see what is happening but my faith is so strong and my belief in God my creator, that I trust the process.
