We had to catch up with the buzzing artist to talk about new releases, upcoming plans and more. Check it out below!
Tell us about yourself and your music.
I’m an upcoming independent hip-hop artist from Memphis, TN! I started off writing poetry at a young age and then transformed my words into lyrics with a beat. My love for this art began in the 5th grade when from free-styling in the cafeteria at lunch time, and entering and winning the talent show that year with some friends rapping. Ever since then I knew that this is what I was made for!
How would you describe your sound?
I have a unique sound of hip-hop, soul/blues, and R&B fused together to deliver a message of positivity, fun, motivation, and real life experiences. And being from the South has a major influence on my sound as well and to top it all off I am well-skilled in punch-lines and metaphors.
Talk about the experience making your song/mixtape.
To me it is the greatest experience of all next to performing live on stage! The process of taking a dope beat (blank canvas) and making it into a masterpiece! My routine is simple and hardly ever changes. First, I step in the booth with just the beat playing, close my eyes, say a quick prayer, vibe to it to get my lyrics right and then I begin! Every song is a different feeling just like every project Ive made so far! The more I grow, mature, and experience new things, my music will reflect that in return. My mixtape #DontMINDMe hosted by DJ Smallz of Southern Smoke (Livemixtape, Datpiff, Spinrilla, etc.) was a great experience! That was my debut mixtape that started it all! My debut EP, State of MIND (Itunes, Spotify, Google-play, etc.) is one I will always remember and will go down as one of my all time favorites as well!
What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?
Currently I’m working on serving my country overseas right now..(yes I am in the military)! But I still have new songs that i will be releasing soon! And then ultimately a project once i return from deployment which will be entitled #OuttaSight,OuttaMIND! Because even though I’m gone from the sight of my family, loved ones, supporters, and haters, my music and the thought of MINDFRAME will not leave their mind! So I’m still working!
What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?
My whole career thus far…every opportunity, every shortcoming, and milestone that I have reached and experienced. I cherish it all equally..the good and the bad.
Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s).
My Ideal collaboration for mainstream would be Kanye West, BIG Sean, Ty Dolla $ign, Rick Ross or Drake! In the Independent aspect it would be Big K.R.I.T or the Memphis legend himself, Playa Fly!
Name something random that people do not know about you.
I would say my military service. I have been in the ARMY (national guard) for going on 9 years now. I have also had a few near death experiences which I do not usually like to talk about in detail as well.
What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?
RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH, your net-worth is as big as your network, every one can not be trusted, you can not be afraid to invest in yourself, and that you always have to be a man with a plan for every move you make!
What can we expect from you in the future?
You can expect me to be me! A great artist with dope music putting on for the south! And proving that lyricist still exist here as well! More great projects, more visuals, more shows and everything else to achieve my final goal…which is too change peoples’ lives for the better!
