His love for hip-hop started when he was across the age of eight, “I used to hearken to rap music from my uncle we grew up collectively and he used to hearken to quite a lot of rap music. He had this Walkman and tapes and CDs of Ludacris and Ja Rule that he would let me hearken to, that’s how I began rapping. The great thing about him making me hearken to the content material was that he would censor it for me, for instance the track Transfer by Ludacris… my model was ‘transfer GIRL get out the way in which.’ That’s how I bought into rap, and I’ve been rapping ever since.”

I noticed Jay’s course of, he was in Timberland’s studio, and so they had been making Grime off Your Shoulders and Timbo says, ‘oh, this man has like 20 to 30 raps in his head, and he simply goes within the studio and begins rapping.’ That impressed me and I wished to try this too and I prayed to God about it, asking him to assist me try this too. I stated to God, ‘if Jay Z can do it, I consider you’re greater than Jay Z and you’ll assist me do it too.’ From that time on I bought to a spot the place I can go within the studio and discover a beat that I like and simply begin rapping with out writing down any content material.”

It’s now not about whether or not you could have the most popular track, it’s about what does God need me to do? I consider that he actually wished me to let go of this person who was damaged and heal. It took time to place out new music as a result of music is a religious factor, t’s one thing that comes from equilibrium and also you’re sharing your life with others. I don’t need to put out music that does extra hurt than good.”
