If you had only five words to describe your new album, it would be…?
Honest, Inspiring, Fun, God-fearing, Dope
Do you have a favorite song from the new album? Why?
“Say Less” I love the vibe and the message of the song.
What led you to pursue a career or ministry in music?
Do you remember that moment when you realized you wanted to make an actual career out of music?
When I was 3 years old, my dad had a studio back in VA and different artist would come in and out and I would sit in the sessions. My uncle used to be a Christian rapper so I was in every one of his sessions. And I mocked all of his lyrics and then they decide to give me a shot and I started from there. I did it all the way up until I was 7 years old and then I kind took a break and focused on school. Then at the age of 12, I got saved for myself and figured out that this was my calling and I went full speed ahead… there wasn’t a plan B for me.
What are your hopes for the new project?
I just hope the impact is bigger than I can even imagine and people gravitate to it because they hear the heart behind it and it challenges them to grow.
If you could potentially tour with any other artist or band (that you haven’t already), who would you choose and why?
Chance The Rapper, Tobe Nwigwe, KB, Kirk Franklin. Because I’m fans of all of their work.
What was the last song/album you listened to on your playlist or stereo?
PJ Morton’s new album.
