What was your musical education?
The pioneers taught me. All I know is either self taught or taught to me indirectly by another colleague

How did you discover your creative territory? How would you describe it?
Uhhhh man I was just tired of listening to the same old repetitive meaningless music! There was very few artist making music worth listening too! Hip Hop became more about the money and less about the creativity and message so I took it upon myself to make timeless music
