With its bold and blistering energy perfectly elevating their distinctive flows throughout, he is continuing his rise as one of the more exciting names on the scene today.
So with the new collaboration available to stream now, we sat down with him to find out more about his origins and influences over the years.
What was the first band or artist you fell in love with?
The first band/group I fell in love with is Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. I loved the way they rapped together in harmony and in unison with each other. Their effort and skill inspired me as an artist to do the same with my music.
Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?
Yes, when I was seventeen years old I formed my rap group called Silent Predators. We all had diverse styles in the Hip-Hop genre.
What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?
My rap idols such as Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Twista and Tech N9ne had a major influence on me in writing rap music. But the main thing that keeps me inspired and motivated is the highs and lows we experience in life itself. The willingness to make an impact in society is what drives me and keeps me focused.
What is a song you wish you had written yourself?
If I had any song that I wish I could have done myself or be featured with, it would be the song titled, “Smile” by 2pac and Scarface.
If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?
I don’t really have a moment I would want to relive.
Which artist would you most love to share a stage with?
I would love to be on stage with Bone Thugs N Harmony, Tech N9ne, Jadakiss, Eminem and Wiz Khalifa.
And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?
I would love to collaborate with Kid Rock and Krayzie Bone.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
I see myself touring in all locations worldwide and performing at venues all across the globe. As well as winning some musical awards and achievements.
