9-Let’s Talk about your music and your last work…
Project X is our Ep that we released last June…. It touches bases on our story of grinding in this industry and staying consistent while at the same time dodging negativity and fake friends . In the mix of all that it has a lot of positive messages about motivation and confidence on records like “Cook it up”, “Shine”, Flight Life, “Got it from the mud” and “Hard to smile” Stay tuned theres another EP in the works and it is by far some of our best work. “Pull Up” will be the first single releasing this year from our upcoming EP.

We are able to express ourselves more vividly, our production is more polished and our sound is at industry standards by working with different producers and engineers.
13-Could you briefly describe the music-making process?
Sometimes its the beat most of the time its the situation…. either way we start with how we are feeling . Nothing is forced when we are in the zone. Alot of our best records are created on the road when we are in and out of town .
