Tell me a little bit about where you’re from? I grew up in Virginia Beach, VA but moved to New Orleans when I was in high school. New Orleans is a city with a lot of history and culture. The city is known for it’s food and it’s music and both for good reason. They’re always looking for a reason to party.
What is the local music scene there like? The music scene in New Orleans is diverse. When most people think about New Orleans music they think of Jazz, Bounce, No Limit and Cash Money. However, over the last few years there’s been a resurgence of lyric-driven Hip Hop with more sample-based “boom bap” style beats. There’s a lot of talented, creative artists in NOLA and it’s very competitive.
How did you get started making music? I got started making music because my older brother started rapping and making beats with his friends. My brother and I are pretty close so I basically picked up on whatever he was doing. I started rapping and making beats when I was in middle school. We started recording songs onto cassette tapes using a karaoke machine and quickly progressed to ProTools. I’m 32 now so I’ve been rapping for just about 20 years at this point. I’ve continued making music because it’s somewhat therapeutic. I like the challenge of making something better than my previous songs. At this point I rap to see if I can impress myself.
Tell me about the single or video we are going to be working on? The single/video we are working on is called Bambino. It’s the title track off of my upcoming album Bambino. The entire album is produced by Burn&loot.
Any features? Who produced the song? Any additional songwriters? Burn&Loot is featured on the song and he also produced the song.
Who directed the video? Burn&loot directed and edited the video.
What album is this song on? My upcoming album Bambino.
What are your plans for the next few months? I’m planning to release the album along with a few more singles and another video. I also have another album finished so be on the lookout for more music in 2020.
Have you ever been on radio? If so what stations and when? No I’ve never been on the radio. Some of the music produced by Burn&loot has been played on New Orleans radio station WWOZ.
What shows or touring do you have planned? I don’t have any shows or tours planned at the moment.
