1. Where are we talking from today?

I'm in hometown Bronx, New York as of right now.

2. Since you live in New York did you go see the ball drop for New Years?

NOBODY thats from New York, goes to see the Ball Drop LOL! .. I have never been like most New Yorkers.

3. Why did you rebrand yourself and your artist name?

I felt like it was time for change, I changed my circle around me, my energy and even my sound along with it because I felt it was time to due so. Look at the time we living in EVERYTHING around us has changed. I wanted to appeal more.

4. Do you keep up with politics and what is your take on it currently?

I wouldn't say I keep up with politics but I am well aware of whats going on in this world as I said, "Look at the time we living in." It doesn't shock me to see what's going on with Trump and the way he has been going with things. I try to limit my opinions because that is not my platform. I do vote and make sure I stay aware of whats going on in the media and with our government.

5. What artists are you listening to right now?

I have been listening to alot of Gunna, Lil Baby ... Drake always stays in my playlist LOL! ; 21 Savage a lot of Young Jeezy too even though its been a minute since we got something new, but I love to go back, dig in the crates!

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

I gotta say Drake & Gunna .. Let me cheat and add Kanye in to there too Drake and Ye gotta make up man music need it.

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

I believe a fan that actually goes out and buy is a TRUE believer in your craft and a appreciator of music because that's the old fashion way of doing things versus paying that 10$ a month and streaming whatever. Both are respectively great ways of support so as long as the fans are getting what they want I don't care how they get it.

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

On my Soundcloud "Ki-On" I have a total of three projects and a couple singles/freestyles up but I have so much more coming in the works as we speak.

9. Music wise, what are you working on?

Right now im gear to release the very delayed LOL! but worth waiting for Album of mine HEFE, which in translation means Boss. I will soon be dropping my New Single "What I Like" so just stay on the lookout.

10. Do you have any plans to tour?

Yes, soon as the album is released stay tuned to my Social Media accounts to find out about any upcoming dates and appearances that are set to come.

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

When i'm not making music I am listening to music, cooking, and Binge watching Greenleaf on Netflix LOL!

12.  Where you @ online?
