Hey Najee! Mind telling our readers a little bit about where you’re from and your music!?
Im 23, im born & raised in New York. I've lived in Washington heights my whole life & its truly been amazing. I started writing music when i was around 12 maybe 13, but i didn't really start recording & putting myself out there until 16.
Your record “Set It Off” was a pleasant surprise! What was the main theme behind it?
um the theme behind it was pretty simple really, Set it off has to be top 3 for one of my favorite movies so i kinda wanted to use that movie theme in my lyrics which i think i kinda did.
What inspired you to write “Set It Off” ?
umm honestly i was just in the house thinking about a girl that's always down to ride for her guy no matter what the situation. I think this song validates that.
Do you have any inspirations or influences for your sound!?
honestly music in general is my inspiration. I've always loved music and wanted to make it, not to sound like anybody else but to actually make my own sound. But i definitely have favorite rappers artist such as lil wayne, j cole, uzi etc.
What’s next for you Najee?
That's a good question, i guess you gotta wait & find out lol na i have a project I've been working on for a minute that im looking forward to dropping for ya in Mid July, so you just gotta wait until then.
