We see these three folks pop up in your roll often. Who are they? Are they collaborators, friends, family, all of the above? (refer to the photots titled “Maconnie the Great” and “Vante hopped in last minute only cause he’s allowed to”.)
All of the above. Usually the people in my life are all of the above.
Is this where most of your music is created? What is the musical process like for you? Beats before melodies, vice versa? Which tracks where created in this room here? (refer to the photo titled “perfection”.)
This is where I practice my live show experience. Usually the general concept first, a melody to to dress the body, then the music is created. My mind tends to do things like that for now.
Your have a very unique style, who are your fashion influences? We are digging the Bolet tie and shades. (refer to the photo titled “I always wanted these”.)
Thanks, I think the what is more important than the who when it comes to style for me. I’m influenced by the colors around me, the shapes of the tree tops, the message I’m trying to convey, the attitude I want to spread, my history and background, the color scheme of a nice building.
