1. Where are we talking from today?

I'm in North Hills, near LA.

2. How is 2018 treating you so far?

Good, and bad. I moved to LA to make my vision a reality, and I'm currently staying at a family's place, I'm technically homeless if it's not for them, but along the way it's been an adventure, I met very nice people along the way, and I had a crazy time here. I'm currently broke and I j wanna get out of this situation as soon as possible.

3. How did you get involved in music? 

It's a long story, I'll get into detail in person, but basically, it all started with a project for middle school in English class. They discovered my talent for music all cuz I failed to do my project and I ended up winging it, one of the options was to write a rap so I did it.

4. When did you make music a priority?

 When I was in 7th grade, I was 12 years old.

5. What inspires you daily to write & record music?

 All the stuff I go thru, what I went thru, and because people tell me I inspire them and they're touched by my lyrics.

6. Name 1-2 highly influential musicians that you listen to & respect?

None, I was inspired by Chris Brown when I was 12 but he ain't my idol anymore, the only real artist whose music I love listening to is Chelsea Cutler and Gryffin.

7.  When it comes to how the music enthusiast listens to your album do you prefer they buy or stream and why?

Both, if they buy my albums to help me out, and if they stream to help spread my name.

8.  Do you have an album/EP out now that readers should check out or are you about releasing singles?

I wanna do both. But no I don't have anything besides those links

9. Music wise, what are you working on? 
Right now I'm working on a deep song that talks about how I'm doing rn in my life.

10. Do you have any plans to tour? 

Yes, when I get money and all that. I love traveling.

11. When you are not making music what else do you enjoy to do? 

Hanging out with my 2 close friends, and doing whatever creative thing I can. 

12.  Where you @ online? 

On Instagram rn my username is @Ayee_itz_luiz_ but ima change it soon to @Black.Drip
