Kairos: Interview

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

Inspiration: Music

Passion: of the Christ

Strength: Gym

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

A man with a dream. An artist who only knows how to express himself through music. I have a passion for the English language and making words fit together. I’m a leader, a musician, an engineer, a producer, a videographer, and an intellectual.

Why do you do what you do?

I make music because that’s what I’m passionate about. They say what you do while you’re procrastinating is what you should do for a living, and I always drifted back to music. So when you’re putting off going to the gym or avoiding writing an essay, what are you doing? That’s most likely what you’re most passionate about.

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

I always knew it was something I wanted to do since I was a kid. Singing in the car on road trips, learning how to play guitar, and all that. But I didn’t really choose this path until I fully felt it was viable and possible for me to create a career out of music.

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

I wouldn’t say there’s a toughest challenge I had to overcome, the toughest part was all the little things. When a mixing session crashes, guitar string snaps, videos don’t export in the proper format, nobody shows up to a show. All those little things can wear you down. I think dedication and drive are really what helped me to plow through those things, and if I can do it so can you.

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

I think the two people that initially inspired me to get into music are Sonreal and Joe Budden.

The two people that are the hardest workers I know in my life that inspired me to work hard and follow my dreams are my dad and my grandpa.

I don’t know if I’ve inspired anyone through my music, but I hope I have and continue to do so.

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

I feel like college has been beneficial for me, but from a financial standpoint it just wasn’t worth it. If you’re passionate about something there’s enough resources nowadays on the internet to teach yourself anything, try going that route first.

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

I’m going down to LA to compete in the Teambackpack cypher May 1-3.

I’m also working on my next mixtape “Torn Pages” which is really close to being done, just a few more tracks to finish up before I have a release date. But it’s definitely going to be my best work yet.

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

I’m a hip hop artist originally from Saskatchewan, the countryside of Canada that doesn’t understand hip hop at all. Just because your family or people around you don’t understand your dreams doesn’t mean they’re not worth pursuing, do what you want to do.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Shout out to everyone who’s helped me develop as an artist and as a person over the last 3 years of my music exploits and my friends and family back home who hold it down for me. If you’re reading this, then you read this whole article, and that means you’re a pretty cool person. You should probably follow me on facebook and stuff.
