Wow. So many artists have inspired me and my music! I respect any artist in general who can pick up an instrument and play. I respect all CREATIVE rap artists and singers as well. I will say, that Prince is a MAJOR influence to me, Outkast, the late Pimp C of UGK, Devin The Dude, the late Isaac Hayes is another major influence, New Birth, WAR, Mandrill, Sting & The Police, 80's Def Leppard, The Doors, Roger Troutman, 8Ball & MJG, Snoop Dogg, DJ Quik is a fucking genius, Suga Free, Morris Day's shit-talking ass (lol), the P-Funk sound, and I can't forget my big uncle Oran "Juice" Jones, & my big homey Kokane from the West Coast, who almost single-handily started the "G-Funk" sound (along with Nate Dogg). Like I said, so many artists! I still feel like I'm forgetting 100 muhfuckin' names too! (lol).
Wow, I can go on for days naming tons of my inspirations. But here's a few: Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Musiq Soulchild, Earth, Wind & Fire....the list can go on forever!!!

Michael Jackson, Hedley, Britney Spears, The Latency, Mayday Parade, Jonas Brothers
Oh so many! First; my dad. He sang in a funk group back in the day (80's) and he's Nate style rubbed off on me. So if I sound like a female Nate Dogg then it's understandable! Prince had an effect!! My dad pumped his music daily and I loved it. KRS1 was an inspiration, he was concious and wrote about up lifting things. H-town always inspired me, my big sister played their slowjams everysingle night, same with Jodeci, Tupac, Biggie, Genuwine (He had a big impact on my writing) The list is endless.
All Of them! They all have there own views of music wich makes them all different!!!
Its So Many But I'll Start Here Eminem, DMX, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Jay Z, Fabolous, Yo Gotti
That is a long list: Clapton, Santana, BB King, Steve Via, Robert Johnson, Eric Johnson, Led Zeppelin, The Police, Chicago, Joe Pass, Larry Carlton, Bach, Stravinsky, Big Band, Rock, some old country, Jazz, Classical, Flamenco, New Age.
I guess anything that sounds good has had some kind of influence on me.
