Biggest Influences :

"Hip hop always motivated me always took me to a different place mentally two artist really stand out in my mind that made me want to write and record one being LL Cool J, LL had such a raw style of rapping in his early Career and it made me want to write rhymes and be versatile with my style and have that raw energy. Second would be Esham, Once I heard Closed Casket, I knew I wanted to write to this style of hip hop the words and the beats everything that Esham brought to his music really made me want to write about anything. It helped me become able to express myself through music and allow the aggressive anger to release from my mind"
