Please introduce yourself real quick…


I am a west coast artist from Inglewood California. I have been told that I have a East Coast sound with West Coast style. My subject is more of the street aesthetic.


What do you do?


I just dropped a mix tape called welcome to Inglewood hosted by Supream Allah that is available on all major streaming platforms. Last year my group Iking dropped Only Made For Digital Links. it was well received but because we do not have a lot of exposure we still have many more people to touch with our music.


What´s new right now?


Hopefully in the next two weeks my first official project will be dropping called Holy Hands. this is the best project that I have done to date and I am very proud of it. I have projects coming with the fam Charley Chan Lupus Dei, Deuce Henessy and Killy Shoot. Sort of a super group..Slughter House 2.0. Be looking out for that.

Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?


Method Man is my favorite MC of all time. I have actually stood next to him at a club in Hollywood…on Sunset Boulevard during a cypher, but never spoke to him. Was dope to just hear his voice in person… As I am reading this, that sounds wild creepy …?

We meet again in one year. What has changed?


I will have put out two projects with visuals that have caused some buzz. I think I will be entertaining label situations, small scale label situations. Maybe a two or three record deal to see what I can do. But I honestly think people are going to know general backpain in the future. This is just the beginning for me .
