Describe your music in one sentence:
Conceptual & Experimental Hip-Hop underlaid with a message of self growth and accountability.
What artists or people in your life have influenced your music?
I draw inspiration from every aspect of my life. My culture is most definitely significant. I plan on delving into flipping some traditional Bollywood / Bhangra sonic and tropes this year.
If you could collab with another artist / singer / producer, who would it be and why?
Kendrick Lamar and Drake. Kendrick is the greatest Hip-Hop artist ever and I would love to break down his processes that lead to some of the most conceptually dense albums ever produced. Drake has been the no 1 artist in the world for over a decade, I would want to pick his brain regarding his approach to song writing & industry acumen.
Five artists you’re listening to right now:
4. Young Franco
5. Billie Eilish
What’s on the cards for you for the rest of the year?
My EP The Worst of Me dropped last month - I'll then drop a short film that accompanies the project. After that I'll be switching gears and dropping more pop influenced hits, hoping to showcase the massive musical growth I've been through the last 6 months.
