WHERE BORN OR RAISED:
WHEN DID YOU NOTICE YOU HAD THE GIFT OR TALENT TO WRITE/SING/PLAY INSTRUMENTS OR IF YOU DID NOT NOTICE WHEN DID YOU FIRST GET INVOLVED IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?
I always knew I was attracted to music since the Mr. Magic rap attack radio show days. Professor Griff gave me my 1st official production break and Gary G Wiz gave me my 1st taste of tour life by hiring me to go on the road with the 'Young Black Teenagers' on a Public Enemy tour.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?
I want to be able to call my own shots in the entertainment business and give young artist an opportunity to shine, grow and showcase their talents.
IF YOU HAVE A CHOSEN SONG/SINGLE â€“ NAME & DESCRIBE IT AND/OR GIVE ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE LYRICS IN A SONG.
My single 'How We Rocked' featuring J.A.E, the chorus goes 'You don't know what I've been told and all the many things that I've seen, now I'm grown and on my I look back when I was a young teen, I was wild'n for no reason, changing like the seasons, bug'n because I could but that's how we rocked in our hood'
NAME SOME OF THE WRITERS/PRODUCERS ON THE ALBUM.
Studdah Man, Severe, Kane and Mr. Maurice'Guitar' Washington
STATE WHAT OR WHO INFLUENCED YOU TO PICK UP AN INSTRUMENT/MICROPHONE AND START PLAYING INSTRUMENTS/WRITING/SINGING?
My general love for music, plus I sucked at basketball so that wasn't an option and there wasn't Obama to make me believe that I could be a president one day.
LIST YOUR PERFORMANCE BACKGROUND â€“ WHO HAVE YOU OPENED FOR OR PEFORMED WITH?
I'm more of a behind the scenes guy than a actual artist I just have worked on a few Public Enemy albums, chuck D and Professor Griff solo projects to name a few.
WHAT'S BEEN THE MOST MEMORABLE GIG AND WHY?
I have two; the 1st is coming on stage with Public Enemy/Young Black Teenagers/Anthrax to help bring in the New Year while they performed 'bring the noise' for our last show in Canada in front of 30,000 fans. The 2nd one is rolling with Public Enemy to their 1st ever NYC show at the union square club, it was a site to see all the 98' olds mobile cars roll across the Williamsburgh Bridge to the gig.
WHEN DID YOU GET YOUR FIRST BREAK AND WAS THERE ANYONE PERSON WHO HELPED ALONG WITH YOUR MUSIC CAREER?
My 1st break was when Professor Griff asked me to come to stay with him and the 2live crew for 3 months in Florida to work on his solo album. The 2nd break is when Gary g wiz gave me a chance to be his production partner and make some hits for Public Enemy.
ANY TIPS FOR SOMEONE INTERESTED IN DOING WHAT YOU DO?
Yes, don't quit your day job and do music for the love not the money and the rest will fall into place but once you start paying taxes from your music, then its not a hobby anymore.
