As far as writing/rapping I have lots of different artists I listen to for inspiration from Kendrick to Kanye to Jay Z . I love experimenting melodically as an artist and producer, Vince Staples and Kali Uchis also helped inspire me to make the beat for the song and the beat was made from a Kali Uchis record I was listening to at the time.
SJ : S/O to Vince Staples and Kali Uchis definitely doing their thing. So TL Moving forward what is your ultimate goal for you music and your brand?
