Whats one food you dont hate, but you could live without?
As for one food I don’t hate, but can live without, mexican food. That stuff kills my stomach lmao.
But, I KILL chinese food mannn

If you weren’t producing, you would be ________________?
If I wasn’t producing, I’d probably start a clothing line, or do graphic design.

How old are you?

Where are you from?
I’m from Atlanta, Georgia

How long have you been producing?
I started messing around with producing on garageband back in 2015 lmao. Then my bro Montel let me use his laptop, back when I didn’t have one, to use FL Studio after we got off work at like 2 in the morning everyday, so I can teach myself how to produce. Then I started getting serious at the start of 2016 putting beats on youtube and getting my first sale/placement.

What are your thoughts on a producers union?
Honestly its a good idea. Folks treat producers like garbage and its crazy to me. Especially today, when the production provides a lot more to a track then it ever used to.
Producers are really out here giving people careers.

What’s the dopest thing to happen to you since you started making music and releasing product?
Man meeting dope people, meeting people that actually believe in you. And seeing someone really invest in your craft. Last year I never thought I’d get any placements or subscribers or views. I’d just post beats on youtube for the sake of getting it out there.

Who are your biggest influences?
Travis Scott, Ye, Cudi, Southside, Tm88, Metro, Mexikodro, Mike Dean.
Their music really put a light on production for me and how production can change the sound of hip hop music.

Want to give any shoutouts?
Yeaaaa lemme shoutout my girl, my bro Montel for being the first nigga to believe in me starting producing, BMG (Bando Music Group) & Z3ta, Trey1k, Banbwoi, janami, zjakkies, eqmadeit, prodbysulton
I feel bad for leaving anyone out, but yea they supported the hell outta me and are keeping me going.
I also wanna shoutout the top youtube producers, because seeing their success and seeing that it’s possible to really make it doing this got me to go to youtube last year.

do you get royalties from any of your beats?
Not as of yet

What is something about you people would be surprised to know?
I really don’t listen to much of the new underground shit lol or mainstream music. But I guess that’s why my sound strays away from the normal kinda beats.

What do your beats normally cost?
Leases for $20, Exclusives usually run for $100, and I can do package deals sometimes if they wanna get a bundle of beats.

What is the most you have made from one beat?

Who are the favorite artists you have produced for?
My bro Noviiimber really my favorite artist to work with right now because no matter what I give him whether its his sound or not, he always turns it into something nice.
Also, the bro 17YRS just made something crazy on soundcloud. Looking forward to working with him more.

Hardware or software?
Software. I use FL Studio 12. I tried using midis and Mpcs but it takes up toooo much time

How many leases or beats, do you think you have sold in your career?
I think I just hit 10
