Tell us about yourself and your music.
I’m the CEO of Hood Legends Records, one of the biggest labels in Baltimore City. I will be dropping my second album on May 5th of this year.
How would you describe your sound?
Just imagine an east coast voice, killing down south beats. The best of both worlds.
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
I just finished recording the album last year. I just wanted to drop it at the right time. This will be my last album until 2020. So I have to push it hard for the next two years to take full advantage of promotion.
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
I’m working on shows from city to city with my Young Sauce Drippers ( Lor Fu, Scar). Also I will be pushing Ike900’s album Ashy to Classy Pt2 when it drops.
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
My biggest highlight was signing autographs at the Orioles Stadium during one of my video shoots.
Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s).
I love to collaborate with artists inside my camp, but I have a hot song with Luscious Kisses we were pushing back in 2015. My favorite artist to collab with is my n***** G-Code, Sv and 2 Little mostly.
Name something random that people do not know about you.
A lot of people don’t know I was raised with no mother or father since age four, due to a tragic situation.
What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
I’ve learned the whole music industry, marketing and promotion rather in the streets or the internet, I’ve mastered the promotion. Also I discovered how to sell music and own your own!
What can we expect from you in the future?
You can expect to see me on the Forbes List one day! Not for being the best rapper but, for making major moves thanks to rap.
