Has coming up in the city of Boston helped shape your music?
Boston didn’t shape me at all – it ‘s just a city that made me, that’s all. Everything else – it’s just me being inspired by my favorite rappers.
Have you directed before directing the “No Sleep” music video? Did anything unexpected occur during the making of the vid? Any happy accidents, etc.?
I’ve never directed before but since No Sleep is really my story only, I know what I wanted to show and the best way I can show it.
What’s your primary message to your listeners with “No Sleep”?
The message was said in the song when I said.., “I cut out the grass now I see the snakes only fuck with theses bitches that only bring cakes”. Not everyone in your circle is applauding for your success – now everyone wants to see you win, even if you’re helping them they still not praying for you to get more cause it’s not them. They praying on your downfall sounds dumb, right? But it’s true. The only way to win is to be selfish. Don’t be afraid to sit and eat at a table by yourself, don’t be afraid to be selfish. I had to learn that the hard way. Value the ones that bring value to your life and fuck the rest that don’t.
What new albums/artists have inspired you so far in 2021?
I haven’t really been listening to nobody this year — been focused on myself.
Has navigating the pandemic changed your perspective on the music industry in any way?
Not really it just made me think more – to come up with better music.
What can the fans expect from you next?
More music, more videos… We got enough for an album but I’m still undecided if I want to keep putting out singles or a mixtape. We will see.
