The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Mike Tyson

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

A flawed, complex individual trying to figure it all out.

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do for therapy, music in particular. I think music has a way of getting people out of the darkest situations imaginable.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I knew since I was a kid I wanted to be in entertainment. I’ve always been fascinated by the power that celebrities and pop culture had over the masses. You sometimes can have the same power as politicians with way less corruption.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

On the music side of things, as a solo artist and as a group, we really have the tendency to go against the grain with our subject matter and process. With that being said I always have to hustle twice as hard to make waves and get the props we deserve. We arent a trend chasing crew, we are here to create trends.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I think watching pioneers like Michael Jackson, LL Cool J, Run DMC and etc really inspired me to aim high and try and push the culture and the artistry to the max. When I travel I meet people along the way who tell me they are inspired by how far Ive come and where I’m going. That gives me hope that I’m being effective and leaving an impression.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I don’t have many regrets but if I did have one I wish I would have finished college. I went to Community college and got a job at a record label in my first semester so I completely abandoned school. So far it’s paid off but I wish I had slutty campus stories to share.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Be on the look out for Bodega Brovas debut album “LGA” coming soon as well as my solo LP “The Rain Maker” and of course catch me 5 nights a week on Dish Nation on Fox (check you local listings for times and such.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

No matter how crazy your goals are, GO FOR IT! Anything you can imagine is obtainable. God put those ideas there.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Walk slowly, appreciate the people around you and soak in each moment. Life is way shorter than you think.
