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!
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!
