Answer: I aim to make a difference in not only music & how music is heard, but a difference in humanity. I want to show people that’s it’s okay to be exactly who you are & you can overcome
your pain. Never be afraid to give your lights to others, which in God’s eyes that means more than any materialistic thing you can gain. I’m all about making a difference in our community as well, showing kids it’s okay to not be violent, use your gift that we all have inside.

Q. How’d you get into the music industry to begin with? I started in St Louis, and it started out as a hobby.
Q. Why would an artist get dropped from a major label? Does it all just come down to the bottom line? An artist would get dropped by not meeting expectations versus the risk of the investment.
