Position/role: Rapper

Give us your wicked-cool backstory. How did you start out? I started back in 2011 when my homie, Travy P convinced me to not be so shy about being able to rap, but I never took it seriously enough. Long story short, I fucked around a lot back then, worked a few random day jobs, went to college, then decided I wanted to make music for a living in 2015 when I was a fashion student. My best friend at the time was managing me. He was a straight hustler so he funded a lot of my resources in the early stages. But things didn’t quite work out how we wanted it to in the long run. He’s currently in jail right now and I ended up on my own path, which led me to WVS. I owe that dude my whole career. Everything I do is for the vision we shared since we were 16-year-olds.

If your sound had to be described as a meal, what would it be? Spaghetti. Cause it’s all about the sauce.

Tell us about your latest single Mission – what’s your creative process like? This is the first single off my upcoming EP. This song was me talking about the people who are really going to stick with me on this journey and the fake people I meet along the way that makes it seem like they’re with you but don’t want to ride it out when times get tough.

Where did you record and why? Who did you work with? I recorded this with my producer/engineer James Angus. He did the beat and mastered it.

The worst thing that happened during recording was…: I kept getting non-stop text messages while I was recording this.

But the best thing was…: I recorded my vocals quicker than usual on this because I honestly didn’t care for this song idea that much at the time.

Tell us about teaming up with Allday for In The Air ? Can we expect any more collaborations? I thought it would just be epic. And it definitely turned out to be an epic song. This song was originally supposed to be just me on it though. I initially wanted him on a different song that was recorded with the intention of having him on it but he loved In The Air the most, so I just rolled with it. I’m not going to lie, I was over the moon when it all came together, and it was surreal. I definitely have a couple of collaborations on my EP including Travy P, a couple of other cool Brisbane cats and some of my close friends that no one even knows about as rappers, but are about to kill it.

What message or theme are you trying to give to your fans through your music? I want people to feel jiggy when they hear my music; I want kids to embrace fashion and style through my sound.

Other than other artists, what inspires your music? Mafia movies and fashion.

The no.1 most interesting thing about you is: I haven’t had normal TV channels on my TV for over two years.

And the most boring thing about you is: I have a wide range of video games but only tend to play UFC and NBA 2K.
