    STORY TIME.

In 2011, a year after high school I was fighting a drug case for possession with intent to sale & burglary. I ended up paying for a solid lawyer & getting a years probation. I knew I had too much potential to b wasting life in & out of jail so I got wit this positive Hiphop group called theBREAX & we became tha dream junkies. It was cool at first because I was around dudes that would encourage me to stay out of that life and make music. Fast forward a few years and we touring all over America. Shit is goin great. it was “family business” so I thought. Then things took a turn when tha spotlight came on me & major labels started reaching out. I noticed what I thought was “family business” was in fact JUST business. soon as tha money came I was taken advantage of by a dude that shall remain nameless. He basically put me in a position where I felt like he was trynna prostitute me & my artistry. Me being me, I couldn’t go for that. So boom, now I’m signed to a major label but still stuck in a contract with his entertainment company. His terms were he keeps my masters from tha soul rebel and four seasons albums and he’ll let me out of my contract. Bullshit, I know. After going through that I was really cool off rapping. Mainly cuz I didn’t wanna come across bitter in my music. I started making more r&b music to try and get over tha misfortune I felt “positive” rap brought me. Meanwhile tha major label is waiting for me to rap my ass off cuz they knew I could. In my rebellious ways I couldn’t oblige. My A&R & I would go bac & forth about it for pretty much tha duration of my time there. He would say you have rap fans so RAP. I just couldn’t get with it out of fear of being taken advantage of again. But you know what they say.. FEAR is false evidence appearing real. So fast forward to today and I wanna give clarity to those of you who found me cuz of my raps & were disappointed when I stopped really giving u rap material. I also wanna thank those who stayed down thru my journey. I’m bac rapping & im having fun with it! I’m working on a rap album. Uncensored & fully me at this point in time. Stay tuned... I hope this don’t go over y’all heads 🙏🙏🙏

    July 2016 I signed a record deal with @interscope. In tha last 4 years I met some of my favorite artist & some of tha best producers out. sat in rooms that most artist would kill to sit in. I learned how to polish my craft & approach any beat without fear. I even learned how to produce my own music. fast forward to July 2020 I’m a free agent. I know I’m one of tha best artist in my generation. Ima spend tha next 4 years making those that passed on me regret it. To any of you out there playing my music I wanna say thank u! I’m far from finished. Like nip said it’s a marathon! 🏁
