What got you into making music?
“I would say what got me into making music was the first time I heard hip hop
The first record I heard was when I was 6 years old was by Jay-Z “Dead Presidents” from that I knew I wanted to do music from a early age,then when I got to the age of 17, that’s around high school I met some one I use to go to school with when I was little,and we reconnected in high school ( George Westinghouse Voc High School), at that time he was making music on computers at school and I always wanted to know how music was made from when I was young, so I asked him can he mentor me on how to Make music and from there I was able to craft my own style of music to what I thought music should sound like”
