Thank you for joining us today Elevated EC! In what ways has your new jersey environment and family upbringing/background impacted your artistry today?
It showed me what it took for my family to strive coming from another part of the world to achieve the American Dream. I have never met any of my 5 uncles as they all died in the civil war. This gave me the ability to be fearless, confident yet humble appreciating my life and artistry utilizing it to tell my story with a message and purpose.
Who would you credit for your super dope sound? Any inspirations or influences in music?
I am influenced by many in the industry. More than who, is the various sounds, trends and culture that lives in breathes in music that influences and inspires me. If I had to pick I would have to say Jay Z, Wyclef Jean, OutKast, The Lox and Tupac. I am also inspired by new school artists with many people comparing me to Lil Durk, Polo G all the way to Davido based on my versatile sound.
Let’s discuss the record “Trust”. We loved this entire arrangement! What was the ultimate goal and vision of the song? The lyrics were super relatable! But we must ask, in what ways were you able to relate this to your personal life? What inspired you to write this?
Trust is a song of me telling and expressing my pain behind a combination of stories involving people I came up with. This song paints the picture of the pain of my guys losing time away from their family due to imprisonment. It questions why certain people had to die due to gun violence like my bro Eddie (E Dullah). It champions loyalty and shame betrayal. Overall, it defines “Trust” as merely a “calculated risk” as apposed to the notion of undoubtedly knowing you can rely on people on and for anything. After all, trust is defined as a firm belief in something. I hope from there you define “belief” which may then help you to question further what the perception of trust is to you.
