Question 3: What kind of message you want people to get when they listen to your music?
Answer: The message I want people to understand that Hip-Hop is more than jus a strong, provocative violent language, Hip-Hop can be used to change lives, teach manners and teach respect of oneself and others.
Question 4: As a well established emcee in the game, what is your advice to the upcoming artists?
Answer: My advice is that Music is the most powerful form of art whatever we speak now stays forever and doesn’t matter how unknown we think we are there’s always someone using music for reference and for day to day lessons.
