You started writing poetry before doing hip hop. What's the difference between the poetry scene and the hip-hop scene?

Poetry to me was something I enjoyed doing, writing fiction & some real stories, and was good at it,so I took it to music, and turn that type of writing into rap song writing, but in a different way then other artists write rap songs. I wrote them about real things & issues in my life and things and people that I see all around me, but it was about the happy and joyful things.

What made you want to start doing hip-hop instead of continuing to do poetry?

Hip hop was always something that I loved to listen to, so I started writing rap songs then it became apart of me. "I guess" Music was always a little part of me, Ironically I come from a musical family on my father side and mother's.

In your music there is not always rhyming in your lyrics, what makes you compose your lyrics in this style?

I like to write what I feel, music to me does not always have to rhyme,"tell me, "whom in the music world says that in hip-hop when you rap that you have to Rhyme? or when did rhyming in a rap songs or any song make it a hit song? or that fans only prefer to listen to and understand songs that rhyme instead of good story telling? "this is not the 80's and early 90's and I never did rhyme in my songs, I'm beyond that, I'm just changing the way that hip-hop fans are use to hearing rap songs, the same style of writing rap songs for years and years rhyming or trying to rhyme every couple of words in a verse, its just me as a songwriter , I be-leave an artist should write what ever way he feels and not the same old "status QUO".

There is no profanity in the tracks that I have listened, Do you use profanity in your music? Explain why or why don't you.

I don't need to use profanity to get my point across or to be an entertaining rap artist,to me the world has enough to deal with. When music listeners of any age listen to my music I want them to feel good, Refreshed, love and be happy enjoy life.

Why is it that hip-hop artists these days saturate their music with profanity?

Beats me, but I'm not into that, I went through some trials and tribulations in my life, But I choose not to saturate my music with all that. I have kids and a sister and mother that listen to my music, they would not respect that.

Describe your music and what makes it different from the rest of the artists?

My music is truthful no talking about keys and pounds and how much guns I got. To me it only take a gun to kill I understand that artist all want to be known as gangstas, "I don't" my music is about having a good time,trying to make it in life, love, romance and beautiful woman.

Chris Brown is continuously in the news about negative incidents which are always publicized more than his positive actions. Do you think his last actions will take a major affect on his career?

NO, the industry have music fans paying attention to the bad things artists do, sad to say it doesn't even matter, he might just sell more..

He has reportedly checked into rehab for his repeated actions, Do you think this move for him is going to work?

As a young black man, I hope it does, you work so hard to get to a level why screw that all up, so I pray it works out for him..

Many artists out here are looking for that major record deal but I read that you are not interested in a record deal. Why are you disinterested in working with a record label?

The way the music industry is going on the world wide web with a couple of artist Breaking through with out the majors owning them, shows that if I keep building my brand by putting out good Quality entertaining music, that sooner or later I will break through also. "Sooner rather than later"

Do you think the social networks help or hurt the music industry? Explain why or why not.

I think it helps, it get guys like me, Independent artists, a chance to showcase my talent to Fans on a Global Scale, with out the internet more artist would be still looking for that elusive major deal..
