We are loving your latest release, “Self love.” What inspired the lyrical content of this particular song?
What inspired my lyrics of this song was pretty much straight forward LOVE YOURSELF cause nobody is going to love you harder than you expect for God. You gotta be your own super fan even when you don’t have any fans (stalkers) around you. If you can’t chill by your lonesome then why do you think anyone wants to go around you. A lot of people in my generation have yet to ask that question and it all starts with self-examination. That’s self-love. Know yourself.
With your artistic style always changing, what musical and non-musical influences do you allow to speak into the music that you create?
I have a purpose to express all that my people have endured and are still enduring. Our environment, our mental/ spirit. My job is to wake up my people through sounds and words to make them think.
How long was the creation and recording process for “Self love”? Were there any memorable moments along the way?
"Self love" was created in my bedroom on my iPhone 6 with a garage band and cheap headphones lol then I kept listening to it over and over like I always do with my songs but this one hit something in me. I let it sit on the shelf for a year.. tried re-cording it at a friend's studio but then the irony hit. I called the song "Self love" and yet here I was trying to perfect my song as if I didn’t already love it so I had to walk away from peoples studio and work on it myself and that’s what I did during COVID (perfect timing by way) purchased logic. Got my equipment and got to work.
How does “Self love,” compare to other songs in your music catalog?
"Self-love" is the next phase in my life from my previous song advice. Which was about taking your own advice and listening to intuition. Now it’s time to put it into action by self-love.
What's next for you?
More independent work that I’m proud of will be on the way!
It’s bigger than music.
