What inspired you to become a hiphop artist?

What inspired me to become a hiphop artist is that when I tried it, I got a great response. It became easy to me. Then it became fun. Then it became necessary. Then I discovered the GOD in it! Then found out how to pay rent with it. Then I couldn’t live without doing it! Then I became a legend in various circles. And then… well, we’re here!

@PHENOM18

Tell us about one of your biggest accomplishments as an artist? Or most memorable moment.

There are so many memorable moments, but I’ll share one! It was when I won the 1st ever Source Magazine Unsigned Hype Emcee battle here in Chicago, over 100 hungry emcees. It got me on a plane for the first time, got me to New York for the first time, got me big respect from my haters for the first time, it got me a chance to link with many celebs and let me showcase this Chicago blaze right before their eyes! I ended up taking 2nd place to Proof from D12 out of 1,000 emcees nationwide! Dope!

What is something you want people to know about you as an artist?

I think you all should know that I’m a loving father of 2 young Princesses and 2 Princes! And they are dope! I also am a Youth Development Navy Seal.

What do you hate & what do you love about Chicago?

Hate is such a strong word! But appropriate in this current text!

Hate                             Love
Politricks                      Hot Chi Music
Police State                 Beautiful Place
Low Support               Very Spiritual
