Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do. I’m a rapper, writer, and drunk.

Top 3 favorite or most visited websites and why? Facebook: That’s how I connect with all my friends because I don’t see them a lot.

Soundcloud: Where all my music is; I don’t have music on my phone.

Tumblr: It’s where all the porn is.

How has living in Bushwick affected your music? I just moved to Bushwick from New Jersey four months ago. Living in Bushwick opened a lot of opportunities to work with more people and different sounds. It’s all about the networking.

 

 

What kinds of things are influencing your music right now? Latin porn, a recent bad relationship, traveling and being a BBW (Big Beautiful Woman).

What are some recent, upcoming or current projects you are working on? I am working on a album that is going to be the deluxe version of my last release and I am also putting the finishing touches on my Sad Girl EP.

If you were a drink, what drink would you be? A long island ice tea because it gets you fucked up really quick.

How did your interest in music begin? As a joke, I was just rapping for fun then the paychecks started coming. I always liked music but never thought I would be making music.

What other musicians/bands are you interested in right now? I’m really into MikeQ and his group queen beat. I listen to a lot of old music. I like a lot of my friends music like Princess Nokia and Zebra Kats. On a typical day, I’m probably listening to Patty Label record.

 

 

What do you want a listened to walk away with after hearing your music? I just make music for me. I don’t dictate what you should get from it.

What’s your absolute favorite place in the city/the world to be? I’ve never been to Japan and I really want to go. But I like Berlin, the scene there is more my speed.

What were you like in high school? I was very similar to what I am now. I was a lot more colorful, active, busy, and the fag on campus.
