What is unique about you and your music?

“Have you gotten up right before dawn and noticed the ambience? The suns about to come out so it’s not so bright but not so dark?

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally? 

“2014, that’s when I started making beats, I always thought I wasn’t good at writing so my nigga from high school needed a producer so I said I would do it, but our music tastes and ideas weren’t the same so there wasn’t too much chemistry there… but that’s bro tho… shout out Sraedon. We both work hella hard.”
