Interview by Tim Brown
When and why did you start playing? I always had a thing for music and rhythm and after talking about making a song for years i finally jumped on a song and it made it to the radio which just pushed me to continue
Which famous musicians do you admire? Why? Honestly I’m a fan of many genres, as far as latin i gotta go with J Balvin and Ozuna, but if were talking american music then Wiz Khalifa, Chris Brown and The Weeknd
Were you influenced by old records & tapes? Which ones? Not too old of tapes, my first influence was Wiz Khalifa’s Cabin Fever 2, thats when i really felt the vibe. But i always sang along to music growing up.
Who are your favorite musicians? Groups? CD’s? I don’t have favorites cause the list could go on, but my favorite albums and mixtapes of all time would be, Ozuna & Anuel – Los Dioses, Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J- Rude Awakening, and Tyga And Chris Brown- Fan Of A Fan.
Whats upcoming plans do you have?
Im gonna put a tour together and travel more, make music around the world
Do you perform in public? Describe those occasions? Concerts, radio, TV. Pre Covid we were doing shows every month all across Los Angeles and Miami, The Last show i did was with Memory Lanez and Nu Legend at Crazy Girls strip club in hollywood, it was their first time having latin performers and the club was just going up, they called to ask us to come back again. As far as radio I’ve been lucky to have my music play on stations across the world
What makes this kind of music “good” to you? The fact that its different, it combines multiple genres and you can feel the melodies even if you don’t understand the words.
Why did you choose to play this kind of music? Its always depends on the beat for me, i just like the vibes more than others sometimes, but i drop music in all genres.
Let’s Talk about your music and your last work… This has been a good year so far, i dropped 4 fire records and I’m gonna continue to drop some heat. The latest one is called Eterna which means timeless/eternal because i feel this record will stay around for a long time, it just has good feels and then the rap verse King Mon did was dope.
How do you feel about the internet in the music business? What a time to be alive, i think this era is the best, as far as streaming services and music videos on youtube. you can make a song today and drop tonight and cost of everything is much cheaper then 20 years ago.
What are the plans for the future? Im going to continue chasing dreams, I’ve done everything I said i would, i think owning another business and the tv/film industry is next.
How has your music evolved since you first began playing music? I take more time now as its not a rush to release anything, I’m more of a perfectionist now and envision the final product. i direct all of my music videos also.
Could you briefly describe the music-making process? Yeah it starts with a bottle on a good night haha, I normally turn up while listening to a beat and by the end of the night i have a song ready.
