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.
