Describe your sound in 3 words
Loud, Different, Fun
Tell us a few things about your new album What The Hell Is This. What is the main idea behind it?
I created a question for the audience, What the hell am I listening to? I wanted it to be a rollercoaster ride that makes you say to yourself, What did I experience, I kinda wanna do that again because I think I liked it!
Which is your most personal and honest lyric?
I Working all night for that beach front house
I need a Large amount
There’s too many personal and honest lyrics to count!
Do you think there is a true underground hip hop sound today?
Yes because the barrier to entry for all entertainment businesses has been lowered due to ease and low cost of equipment. So the Underground sound gets confused for mainstream but it’s still “Underground”. Check out my channel Paradise.Mobile on Youtube. It’s the MTV Jams of Philly.
What does hip hop symbolize in your opinion?
Freedom and expression. The ability to create your own but also the ability to turn you as an individual into a true business. I like to look at my music career as a business I plan on taking to Shark Tank. I feel like hip hop/rap has put a magnifying glass on the business side of the music industry due to hip hop being so translucent. If you study Hip Hop you can see that it’s been able to take people from the basement to the mainstage, but also allowed them to retain that foothold in entertainment acquired by forcing all artists to either learn the business themselves or choose another profession.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Do It Now, Like Right now, stop being scared, it’ll get better, and easier!
What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
Well when you’re an african american male and you graduate from a suburban highschool with Straight F’s, but you look like a nerd, no one even cares to monitor you. You tend to get written off. So whatever I did I got away with.
