Q.) What is one accomplishment that you are currently pursuing?
A.) My goal is to establish myself in the industry as one of the hardest producers in the game.

Q.) What is one thing that you tell yourself everyday?
A.) Everyday I tell myself to do better than yesterday and to stop beating yourself up for the past. I want to be able to leave this world knowing I have no regrets.

Q.) Who do you do this for?
A.) Myself, my family, and my friends, especially myself though. Not to sound selfish but there were times I sat alone and cried about this, loss sleep about this, been at my lowest point without telling anybody. I feel like I deserve this, I deserve that victory after fighting the battles I fought, I deserve to sit back and say I won.

Q.) Is there any artists that you work with that you want to shoutout?
A.) K.E.L, Parlay L00ny, OTYOUNGTAE, Hope Trilly, Rj Dusse, KaayKartel, Swuante, Rada, PsbChase, Pvilleju, Bpk Gwap, NDL Jay, YBKAP1, AceQueezy, Denrock, Ken.Dra, Koolie, SwayOnTheBeat, NHG, and more. Plus my producer homie Mic.Muzik & Mellow Made

Q.) When did you start making beats?
A.) I wanted to be apart of the music industry but I couldn't rap, so my bro Kel told me to use audiomack to make beats. He said "I don't have the patience for it, see of you can" I studied it and became the producer I am today off the strength of becoming better at any means necessary.

Q.) Is there anything you would tell upcoming producers?
A.) Make yourself different, and treat yourself as a business and a brand.

Q.) With that said, I already know you can't tell us directly but is there any sort of hint as to what your next big move may be you're willing to drop?
A.) More blue check placements, that's all I can really say at the moment.

Q.) Given its harsh demeanor, what is one of the better parts of being in the music industry that you look forward to?
A.) Meeting the right people, putting myself in better situations to make better music.

Q.) One thing you want?
A.) Stability. Mentally and financially, and I want plaques on plaques.

Q.) What should fans be on the lookout for?
A.) My tag on their favorite beats.

Q.) Any specific note you want to end this on?
A.) Take care of your mental, believe in yourself and know that sometimes it storms but the sun always gone shine again.
