JChampion: my last few interviews I did with other publications, I kind of mentioned some of the same names, but honestly I’ve had so many artist musically touch my soul, so just to name a few ill start with Stack bundles, his hunger really motivated me like no other, he built his name from the ground up and created a movement that had people screaming SQQQQQQuad Up!!!!!!! Worldwide, The next one on my list is Tupac, I swear I thought I was his biggest fan, I listened to everything he put out I would go into music stores and just jam out to his stuff, and when his untimely demised occurred I was on the hunt for every bootleg Makaveli that dropped lol

  1. What has been the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in your life or music so far?

I know God got me…. And musically, I would just say learning the business, and understanding a mouth will say anything. I just listen, learn, filter, and try my best, what you desire desires you.

  1. If you had the opportunity to change one thing about how the music business works right now, what would that be?
