What advice would you give those that desires to pursue a career in music?
Put every available dollar to music. Invest in yourself. As oppose to buying the latest Jordan’s put it towards studio time, books and etc. The person with the best music doesn’t always win its the knowledge that helps you surpass others
It seems like you are creating a movement, Fxck Fame, can you elaborate how that started?
Got caught with up a few label situations that were wanting me to change, they wanted something that they would be able to make a quick dollar from and telling me that I will be famous. I’m all about character so comprising my music wasn’t in the question for fame so that’s how Fxck Fame came to life. A lot of my peers were doing it for the fame and I didn’t want to go down that route.
