Q: What made you interested in Music? 

 

A; I was  fan of rap music since I first heard it while growing up in the Bronx. A Local DJ named Joe Stick gave me my first opportunity to rap.

 

Q:  Why did you choose Christian music? 

 

A: After so many years of trying to put out a project, I felt in my spirit that God was telling me to honor Him with my music, and He’ll open some doors for me.

A: I work for the transit authority in NYC. I come in contact with 100’s of people a day – five days a week which enables me to cross paths with music lovers and network.

 

Q: What separates you from other Christian Rappers? 

 

A: My music has an old-school feel to it.
