Who do you want to work with in the future?
In the future i want to work with anyone with talent who would like to work with me.you never know where the next creative sound is hiding.
Tell us about a record which you are very proud of?
I would have to say “lights low” ft 2pistols it is my biggest record to date selling over 400,000 copies and charting on billboard top 100.it was my first major placement thru cash money records /universal motown and it gave my career the startup it needed.
What was your most challenging piece of work you have completed?
My most challenging piece of work would have to be my “Rhythm N Bando “project .because when i was working on it before it was released i was incarcerated and had to be placed on house arrest for 2 years which made it hard for me to record it and get it to the right hands and ears once finished, but it’s my most heartfelt piece to this day! And will probably be one of my biggest projects of my indie career.
