How do you feel about the current state of music?

Meh, Watered down, the educational messages behind music’s lyrics are not there as much anymore, the lyrical aspect of hip hop in commercial music; I feel, is gone from the late 90’s, making “smart” music really isn’t considered cool anymore, yeah they’re some cats trying to bring back that “woke” style, but it’s few and far betweet

To develop & generate  multiple revenue streams based on my brand

What separates you from other artists? (What’s makes you different?

I don’t try to copy the current hot song, I let the vibe, the beats I make dictate how the song should sound, my songs are a trippy cube of congealed madness, my songs are multi dimensional in my approach to the lyrics, sweeping synths, it’s all interesting to the listeners

Play Guitar, Write, Xbox
