What do you do? What is your musical specialty?
I am a artist at heart, I've always had a passion for writing, whether it was a story, poetry, which formed to raps, which then reconstructed into songs. I don't like to constrict myself to just one side of the box, if it involves music, so I guess my specialty is being openly aware to detail.
Do you work alone or in a group? If in a group, who are the others you work with?
For a long time, I've been so use to working alongside myself due to one of a kind interest in detail, I don't consider "it" working within my camp, but the NEW familia is True Sound Music Group/Universal records ...... The Head of that particular musical group of misfits is my mentor as well as a good friend "Self-service" multi-platinum selling producer that has been in the game 20+ yrs.
Is there a web address where one can listen, see, or read some of your work?
Well, for now I have utilize myspace (laughs) Yes! myspace for now so, that has to give a good sense of what direction I go. but the construction of MY webpage will be up in running SOON.
How did you begin making music? Who introduced you?
The culture of Hip-Hop evolving before my eyes as I was growing up introduced me to music. I started to write down my versions (mostly, just verses) to songs I would've killed to contribute too, but I didn't know how to count barz, yet. So I taught myself a lot about my craft and how I saw music just using da rhythm of the instrumental w/ a WHOLE BUNCH of words on the paper. (Laughs) I always had a lot to say when I'm in my zone.
When did you realise that making music could be a way of life for you?
When I started to believe in myself, as well as take notice that I was better than the average at my age evolving rapidly, every second I minded my craft. which began to adapt in my everyday life without proper assessments I started to focus and mold myself into fitting my path set.
What is your creative process?
I just focus on my energy level and reality as a comparison to what I want to share with others. I never like forcing music, because what you have to understand is that the end results in any music created by the artist is ALL in how the artist feels, about the track, about whats the angle in order to breathe life into the record etc. and how the music will be perceived to the listener. So whatever mood I'm in is usually how I go about the wave like surfboarding. (Laughs)
When do you have your most lucid moments, in the morning or night?
When I was younger mostly at night is when I could hear my thoughts better along with my writing sense but now that time has progress and practice makes improvement ..... Random moments come about now a days, I could be walking down the street and notice something big or small, alot of times theirs no relevance to whatever triggers an epiphany.
Have you ever awoken with a melody created from your dreams?
Yes, isn't it weird how things come about.
How do you know when a song is finished or needs no more changes?
With music, you would think that its all about 100% listening but the feel of a good record will give you the same equal amount of emotion to decide on the completion to the record.
How often do you practice?
Never stopped, yet.
How do you feel right before going out on stage?
A lil' nervous but that's normal, I try to focus on gathering ALL the negativity that I may have gone through before taking the stage and channel that as my fuel to thrive off my music created form those feelings, which gives an indescribable and unexplainable feeling.
Which musicians or groups have been inspiring to your career?
No one in particular so to speak, I don't want to paint, JUST that face as a picture but really the ones that have come a long way in there journey, along their path that can be understood and remain relevant throughout their music.
What time did you get up this morning?
Sleep??? I barely do that anymore. (Laughs)
What advice would you give to someone starting out in the business?
Be yourself, be willing to learn from someone other than yourself and be presistant.
